Check Mate

Photobucket

I seem to have an ever growing collection of checked shirts. At first I was a bit dubious of the said checked shirt, with the fear of looking like a farmer. However this little River Island number has swayed me. It is just the right size to make it look casual yet not like I have just pulled a shirt out of my boyfriends closet. Perfect teamed with leather trousers!

I love checked shirts- they're just so darn easy. And you definitely don't look like a farmer, if that were the attire for ploughing the fields i think i'd have found my career path :P x

lol I have the same dubious feelings about checkered shirts but it's all about styling and the way you've styled it here, does NOT look farmer at all. Looks great! I love the look! As always, you're dressed fabulously.
