Why Check Is The New Black!

Hi all! I’m going to be giving my YouTube channel a shot in the arm this week! (HOORAY!) I seriously admire all of my YouTube content creator buddies!! My god, video editing requires next level skills and patience – and having the camera in my face all of the time is soooo different to shooting outfits.

I’ve always been an Instagrammer, where I mostly share static parts of my life on social media. YouTube requires some serious drama and presentation skills! Anyway I am ready to take the plunge and see where things go! I will be posting my first video this week, so please feel free to click here and subscribe to my Miss Gunner channel – I currently have 46 amazing subscribers and 45 of those are probably my own friends!! Hahahaha YAY!!! Gotta love your friends! So if there are any ideas about what kind of video you would like to see from me, please leave me a comment below.

So, back to this post, most of you already know that I’m a blazer girl through and through. I’m always looking for new blazer cuts, patterns, colours and trends to add to my growing collection. In 2017, I started wearing a lot of check and I thought it’s probably not going to hang around in 2018, and boy have I been wrong so far! If anything, the check trend is dominating and has now taken on its own path and evolved into so many different styles and colours of check blazers, coats, shearling coats and trousers. You will definitely be seeing a lot of check in 2018!

Here I’m wearing check over all and a matching blazer. Too much check? I think not! So make sure you experiment with check. Get all matchy matchy until you can’t match no more! I’m finishing up the look with a Mango embroidered bag and Dune London boots.

Happy checking everyone! Thank you so much for reading! See you guys at the next blog post!
