Gingham Mania

Hi lovelies!

Hope everyone is enjoying this amazing weather!  Gingham is no longer just for tablecloths – it has been transformed into fun dresses, tops, skirts and even shoes for summer.  Nothing says summer time like gingham.  It is a lightweight cotton that drapes beautifully and is perfect for summer heat.  I wore this outfit to lunch and got tons of compliments.  I belted my dress and added fun flats.  I became instantly brunch ready!

Oz Beach Style: Gingham & Straw

Hello lovelies!

Sorry for the late post today, but I have been unpacking and getting back into the swing of things. The beach was just dreamy – there is no other way for me to say it. I LOVE our new house, and I cannot wait to start putting my personal stamp on it. I was extremely busy with getting the house ready, but I generally found time for some fun lunches and dinners. I adore this dress that I wore out to lunch – it is extremely lightweight and the shape is fun and flirty for summer.Throw in the gingham print (which reminds me of the Dorothy dress from Oz, but much chicer and more modern), and that coupled with my mood was the trifecta of fabulous.

With Oz heavy on my brain I added a straw bag by Olive design. One of my dearest friends just started her own business making these fabulous straw bags and I am madly in love with them. They are the perfect size and extremely whimsical – so of course they have my name all over them! Follow her on Instagram and place an order (she does custom orders – can anyone say blush pink?)

The Small Check All Gown Up: Gingham Culottes & Bows

Hello lovelies!

I am a bit late posting today but I am writing on my way to San Antonio.  Summer has officially begun for me and I am on my first road trip of the summer.  Cant wait to share some OOTDs from there!

Today I want to cover a trend that was seen all over the 2015 Catwalk (everyone from Altuzarra, Oscar de La Renta, to Balmain).  Gingham traditionally reminds me of summer but more lazy picnic blankets and preppy button downs.  This season the wonderful twist on gingham involves the city chic ways it has been transformed.  Now gingham is about sexy skater skirts, body con dresses and 70s inspired culottes.
