I adore this outfit. I feel totally sophisticated, ladylike, retro and just dang classy in it and to be honest I want to wear it all the time. I want to wear it shopping, doing the laundry, seeing friends and even just slobbing out in front of a rerun of NCIS. The main event is of course this gorgeous Rare gingham dress with its pouffy skirt and halter-neck collar and I am too in love with it for words. Anything gingham makes me think of Enid Blyton books and ginger beer laden picnics by the sea so this dress is perfect for adding a little bit of British summertime to your wardrobes!

Today I decided to go for red accessories so I teamed the dress with a bright red lipstick, my gorgeous red court shoes from George and this spectacular Kate Spade inspired popcorn handbag that Sarah posted about on Twitter a while back. I feel like I should be lounging in the front seat of a convertible watching The Blob at the drive in with the Pink Ladies and the T Birds.
