We can all relate to gingham in someway, I'm sure. Whether it be remembering very nostalgic memories of handmade dresses we used to wear as a child or touches of it at home growing up or at granny's and perhaps more recent memories of our own children wearing it. Actually, I think I have all of the above covered.
This dress is everything for a lover of gingham. The black and white brings it up to date but it still feels classic. In a heavier weighted cotton, it's a match for our ever changing summer weather and will very easily take us through autumn and winter layered with some knitwear and tights finished off with some boots. Gabriella likes edgy pieces of clothing but surprisingly she love traditional too. This was her choice. She's probably quite a bit like me. My style is definitely classic with a little bit of edge. Oh and please excuse the sandals, they are her absolute favourite at the moment and could do nothing to style the dress with more appropriate shoes, no amount of bribery could prise them off her feet.
One of the girls favourite spots in the park over the summer has been in amongst the long wild grasses next to Kensington Palace. As well as the long grasses the most beautiful English style wild garden is right next to it leading the way to the Royal Palace. It's a stunning little spot to enjoy a picnic or let the children run free whilst you sit and admire the prettiness around you. How could I not share a few photos of Gabriella wearing the gingham dress whilst hanging out at one of her favourite areas in the park.
