    For me, wearing gingham gives me flashback terrors of Nigerian boarding schools such as ill fitted dresses, punishments from seniors and feeling so inadequate amongst my peers. So, how exactly does a grown-up gal wear this wholesome print that she swore against and still look chic? This is my fresh take on wearing gingham.

    Floral Attraction…

    Florals are like the all- time classics to me. They are so beautiful and are very feminine and ladylike when done tastefully.
