As Helmi reminded me that this week's weather will be warm my heart leaps with joy considering the fact that it's an opportunity to wear relevant spring-associated colors. Of course, the experience of wearing specific hues in a specific way is relatively new to me considering that I discovered fashion a little bit more than a year ago. The pieces in the following images are bought separately somewhen last year, when I did not even have a clue to pair them together for a total spring look. Hence the combination of stripes and blue gingham shirt and red pants (that I featured ages ago) finished off with penny loafers is refreshing, if you ask me.
On an unrelated note, the word gingham actually derives from a MALAY word! This is what I got from Oxford Dictionary :
· n. lightweight plain-woven cotton cloth, typically checked.
– ORIGIN C17: from Du. gingang, from Malay genggang (orig. an adj. meaning ‘striped’).
It still amuses me that people on the street tend too gawk whenever I wear those flaming red trousers. I think this is not the case if I was in Italy...people oh people!
