One of my favourite fabrics, Gingham feels distinctly British, and reminds me of picnics, school uniforms and cream tea idylls. I wish I had proper gingham clothes, instead I have only variations on the theme - checks of many descriptions, like my trousers, shirt and two dresses (given/lent by Daisy) here. While flicking through a magazine today I saw this Chanel sunglasses advert and thought of a Primark buy I made a few years ago. I've never been sure what this black and white chequered chiffon number is supposed to be worn as (shorts? pj's? underwear? beachwear?!) but I love them all the same.
