Happy Monday ladies! Our open house went well and now we wait. I’m loving the feel of minimalistic surroundings and wonder if I’ll unpack most of those boxes we just stored;) I’m glad for the breather from the packing then expect it will get frenzied again when someone buys it. In the meantime, I’m happy to get back to fashion and what’s new for spring.
Today I’m talking about Gingham, that traditional pattern that’s as classic as polka dots and stripes. It’s most common in tablecloths, famously worn by Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and nothing I could picture myself wearing. It’s everywhere this season and showing up in sophisticated ways so I’m on the hunt for some unusual looking pieces.
How about this gingham Moto Jacket? The sharp navy and white with zipper detailing looks anything but girlish. It’s got stretch built in for comfort and would be great with a white sundress, blue jeans, white jeans, etc.
Gingham ribbons can be totally girlish but also preppy and feminine in these denim sandals. I see them dressed up with a sundress or down with skinny jeans

The juxtaposition of tulle and gingham make this skirt unusual and fabulous. I love how they’ve dressed it down with a chambray shirt which is just how I would wear it. I’d add espadrilles, simple jewelry and call it a day. Super fun! I also see it with a white tee and denim jacket.
I love this circle bag. The black and white gingham nods to the 50’s with a modern vibe. The shape is on trend and the pattern is classic making this an investment bag that’s wearable for many years.
These slides are from Talbots who is known for their traditional shapes and patterns. These are not unusual but the whimsical pattern would be fun in the hot weather.
Do you wear gingham?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
