I think I'm addicted to choker necklaces. They are so 90s, look great with any neckline, and, best of all, are so light that it literally feels like you're wearing nothing! 

I was never a fan of tartan/plaid, it reminded me too much of these Scottish- style picnic blankets we used to use when I was a child and they always smelt REALLY bad (the dog sat on them- haha). Saying that, this double layer top from Mink Pink caught my eye right away, it's not too crazy-tartan, but still has a cool plaid effect to it. 

I glammed it up a bit with lace black shorts, I thought denim cut-offs might look a bit too farmery. But a little bit of farm glam is good in moderation right?
