I am getting excited for all the gingham this summer and whilst it may still be too wintery to get my pastels on I thought it was about time I went mono and whipped out this black and white 50's tie front shirt. I have teamed it with this fab black skirt from French Connection. It is a lovely weight and hangs really well, another wardrobe staple check box filled. It also comes in an amazing yellow colour which was unfortunately out of stock when I got the black one, think I am going to need that one too - the yellow obsession continues.
I need to decide what to do with my hair, do I continue growing it or do I have it cut a bit shorter? My hair is too straight to hold any curl and whilst I have a lot of hair it is really fine so the longer it gets the flatter it gets. Oh how I dream of having big hair! I am liking it more than I thought I would, last time I grew it (years ago!) I hated it and went for a super short crop in rebellion.

Gingham has a real 50's feel to me so the 50's style tie front shirt is the perfect match!
