In the summer heat, there is nothing more important than comfort. My 'go to' casual outfit this summer has been a crop top and full skirt (sans the petticoat of course).
This blue gingham skirt was a last minute project I sewed up a few days before my holiday. I didn't use a pattern, but just winged it. It is a little loose on the waistband, but that was intentional as I like to have some wiggle room whilst I travel.
I love gingham so so much, probably because I used to wear a gingham summer dress to school as a small child, with a matching hair scrunchie and frilly socks.
This look has ended up a little Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and fitted perfectly with my visit to the stables - very farm girl!
This crop top has been one of my favourite separates this summer and was made up using the Mrs Depew- Beach Bustier pattern. I was tempted to make it up in a tropical print, but I'm glad I went with the basic block white for versatility's sake.
What has been your 'go to' look this summer?
