Gingham and Plaid
Today's outfit is a pretty preppy looking outfit with the plaid, gingham, and collared blouse. The main point of the outfit was to mixing patterns, the detailed plaid skirt paired gingham pattern from my bag. What I also liked was how the skirt pattern is very fine and detailed while the gingham contrasts it with the more block-y design. I also really like wearing red even more these days because it matches my hair color which is really well captured in the light in this picture!
You can get a better look of the bag in this picture. I really love the monochrome gingham pattern. I've noticed it's really in season this spring (it's almost summer now...) but I've seen it at brands like DVF, Dolce, and Prada.
I kept the top part pretty simple but the small rhinestone detailing on this collar adds just enough and keeps it pretty feminine. It's a pretty warm outfit overall since it was still pretty chilly in Japan at this time but without the knit sweater over the blouse it's a good transitional outfit into warmer weather!
