Giddy for Gingham

If you haven’t purchased something gingham, What the heck are you waiting for? I have more gingham pieces than one should probably own but quite frankly, I just can’t stop! I have to say that Trends this summer are just so stinking cute. From pom poms, tassels, gingham and ruffles I can’t get enough. I mean have you seen my Instagram? So why is everyone so giddy for gingham?

Gingham is without a doubt my favorite summer pattern. There is something about this fun, feminime print that reminds me of summer days by the seashore. I mean, here in Gloucester we do spend most, ok, ALL of our days at the beach. Except for me, I am kinda a pool gal. Once when I was young, I got taken down by an undertoe. It wasn’t that serioous, minus the amount of sand in my swimsuit and fool I made of myself. Mason and I spent the past few days pool side, eating ice cream from Down River ( The best ice cream, EVER) and enjoying all the summertime feels!

If you caught my last post on my May favorites, you know that I mentioned my recent love for Express. These shorts are no exception! When I saw Monic from Simply Sutter had these too, I knew I was going to love them. While I was hanging down by the beach in this look and I can’t tell you how many compliments I received. These gingham tie waist shorts, ruffle one shoulder top, and yet again…¬†Cult Gaia might be one of my favorite looks so far this summer. The amazing mango coconut green tea and volkswagon bus certainly helped for the perfect photo op. Not going to lie, kinda wishing this was my Volkwagon van to cruise seaside all summer long, Do ya feel me?

That brings me to this cute off the shoulder gingham dress from ASOS. When I put it on for the first time, well, anything that is that comfortable usually gets a lot of wear. I love to look stylish, but I need to be comfortable. Do you choose functionability over style? I have rocked this dress with sneakers for an easy daytime, but today I paired it with my fav wedges of the season. Either way its on trend, super cute and a gingham dress you will be happy to have in your closet!

Are you convinced by these two looks that you need to add some gingham in your life? There are so many great gingham pieces you are bond to find one, or like in my case, many you can’t pass up! We are halfway into June, and you know what that means, right? Its almost the best time of the year, the #Nsale!

    Exactly. What the hell am I waiting for? Gingham is such a classic print and yet I own not one item in my closet. D’oh. Clearly, that has to change.

    Nice shorts and pretty dress.
