Today’s look is my fuchsia gingham top and rockstud cross body bag outfit.

Gingham is a huge trend this summer and this pink gingham top from Zara immediately caught my eye due to its volumous ruffle sleeves and fuchsia pink and white colour combo. I don’t think this is the most flattering top I have ever worn, but I like the pattern and found it quite easy to wear as it’s loose fitting and it was so hot on that day!

Comfy footwear is always great when you are walking around for the day and these embroidered mules are the comfiest shoes I own at the moment. As well as being comfy, they are really stylish and fashionable too. The leather is so soft and I love the floral embroidered details.

I treated myself to a new handbag and opted for a Valentino Rockstud Cross Body Bag which I purchased from Flannels. I’m really happy with the size and look it gives. A Valentino rockstud handbag had been on my wishlist for many years so I’m pleased that I was finally able to buy one. Although I love luxury handbags they are not something I can buy all the time and I save up for my bags and usually allow myself a purchase like this once a year.

I hope you like the look and let me know your thoughts on the pink gingham and rockstuds look in the comments section below.

    The blouse is very pretty. I wonder if they do it in other colors as well.

    I was actually skeptical about getting a top with sleeves like yours but it looks great on you! Your new back is also very cute. I’m not crazy about gingham but I would give it a try.
