Black and White Gingham // Outfit of the Day

Black and White Gingham // Hello loves, hope you've had a good week? Well, I am exceptionally late to the 'summer gingham' party - this trend was huge a few months back but seemed to just pass me by... Anyways, I've had this dress in my wardrobe for a number of years now (it's a good thing patterns like gingham are forever in fashion...) and thought I'd wear it on an outing into town a couple of weeks back. Since summer ended a looooong time ago (when on earth did it become November?!?!), I paired my dress with my trusty black cardigan from good, old Primark (and, of course, a big thick coat, not pictured!). This cardigan has honestly been my wardrobe staple/ lifesaver. There have been so many times that the cardigan has helped to make an outfit look instantly chic and smart - I actually call this my 'lucky' cardigan, as I tend to wear it to job interviews and, even though sometimes I didn't end up getting the job, at least I know I looked good... ;-)

What do you think of my outfit? As much as I love colour, I don't think you can beat a classic monochrome combo. There is something so striking about black and white, and I decided to finish off the look with a white floral necklace. I also think this is the first time I have posted an Outfit of the Day post with my hair tied back - usually it's flowing wild in the wind for these blog photos, but let's be honest... tied back and out my face is definitely my 'go-to' most mornings. :-)

Let me know what you think in the comments below.
