As I’m sure a lot of you have seen, gingham is having a major moment this Spring. I wore a matching set last year in July and have been obsessed ever since. I specifically am enjoying the ruffles, asymmetrical hemlines and overall statement pieces this fun fabric has been transformed into. It really makes for a great statement piece.

I scrounged up this top a few weeks ago after losing it in one of my drawers. It is such a treat to find gems like this in your own closet! I purchased it for a steal at H&M after being inspired by an image on Tumblr of a beautiful lace camisole. It is almost identical to the one I am wearing here. I decided to pair my new sporty tube socks from American Apparel with a more feminine touch of lace that can be found both in my camisole and my kimono. Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day weekend!

Printed pants have been on my mind and all over Tumblr as of late. It really gives a fun little kick to your work wardrobe. I have the difficult task of dressing according to certain guidelines at work. I was immediately attracted to these pants after a visit to H&M. For trousers they fit me perfectly, not too big and not too fitted (normally everything is oversized). The print gives a little edge without going off the path of “work appropriate”. For a more casual look I’d love to pair these pants with a fun neon tank once summer gets closer!

I’ve been very intrigued by the “sporty” fashion trend I seem to be finding in stores like TopShop and online at NastyGal. Might explain my strange attraction to mesh jerseys lately. Almost unknown to my subconscious I put this outfit together before heading to the office. While I traded out this American Apparel wind breaker for a blazer later in the day it really helped pull the whole sports inspired look together. Not to mention my absolute favorite riding pants I purchased from TopShop. I not only can get away with wearing these at work but they are the most comfortable high waisted pants I have ever worn. The white stripes on the side give this look exactly what it needs, that 80s sport vibe.

Minnie Mouse snapback was also placed in for some additional fun :)
