This is not really much of a nod to the Netflix series, Queen’s Gambit, which I loved. Apparently checked patterns are having a moment because of their prevalence in that show.

This Tory Burch sweater jacket is a couple of years old and I’d say is more of a nod to a keffiyeh than a chessboard. The zip through blouse is an old NAS Theory purchase, boots are older M Gemi and the jeans are Citizens Charlotte from 2019. I really like this cut and the full length so I duplicated in light blue this past autumn. I’ve heard tell they look good from behind.

Will look for some finds when I’m back at my desk. This is a festive Pap smear outfit! I always dress nicely for medical appointments, to compensate for the indignity of the “Johnny”.
