Gingham and florals

Yesterday started off with a mere glimmer of sunshine in the sky, but that was all the encouragement I needed to roll out a couple of my favourite trends from the summer before they have to be packed away. The gingham and flowers are in perfect harmony especially when paired up with monotone accessories.

I find myself at this time of year fighting a sense of panic that I still haven't managed to show you all of my purchases from the current season. It seems so sad to have to pack up these colourful delights without them making their debut. My blogging friend Sheila of Ephemera always makes a point of wearing her new purchases as soon as possible which makes perfect sense to me now. 

I think I had, somewhat foolishly, believed that after the heatwave in June, we would be blessed with another burst of sun where one day followed on after the other, joining up to make something that resembled summer - no such luck eh? If we have the occasional bright day, be aware that I'll be subjected you to something bright too, for my own satisfaction. Today's outfit may be familiar to you, but previously seen as separates which are married joyfully in this ensemble. The black and white accessories tie it all together - black belt, shoe boots and petticoat and the white jumbo pearls, sweetly finished off with my favourite black and white sunglasses. The shoes are in fact brand new though - from Tu at Sainsbury's in the July sale for £8, yippee! 

Outfit details - skirt: H&M, top: George at Asda, shoes: Tu at Sainsbury's, belt: Dorothy Perkins, necklace: Debenhams, petticoat: eBay, leather jacket: preloved, rings: preloved, sunglasses: Quay Australia.
