Gingham Pieces for Spring-Some of My Picks


Next week, I will be sharing a gingham look,  along with my friend, Kellyann, just one of several that I have from my closet for Spring. Something about this look evokes warm and fuzzy feelings from me, as I think of this vintage pattern. It makes me think of that picnic tablecloth in red and white squares

From post- Pink Gingham and White Denim

I loved this larger gingham pattern from last year at Banana Republic. Read the post HERE.


My mom told me she had a number of gingham pieces when she grew up. Boy, I wish I had mom’s clothes to look through, I am sure there were some treasures!

I’ll be talking a bit more about gingham and what I am wearing on Monday’s post, but for now, what makes it so popular?

Could it be that The Wizard of Oz was my favorite movie as a child, and Dorothy wore that memorable blue gingham dress? Gingham has a nostalgic feel for me, and you can envision it in other musicals like Oklahoma and others. I do like musicals!

Remember Gilligan’s Island? I can still sing all the words to the opening song.! Maryann, was often seen in a gingham dress.

It is different from plaid, as gingham as the single color and is symmetrical in its design, of squares.

“** Wiki source**Gingham” comes from the Malayan word genggang, or “striped.” The way we identify gingham, as being a contrasting-check shirt, was not the way in which the fabric was originally known.

I think of gingham as the perfect print to wear to a picnic! Let’s face it, the rattan bag, and the gingham print looks like you already brought the picnic with you! 🙂

Have you ventured into the world of Gingham? If you love this look, pop over on Monday, when my friend, Kellyann and I style gingham.

By the way, I am still waiting to hear about my tests from the doctor. Usually, I get results in 1-2 days, but the allergy test is taking longer. I sometimes envy my pup’s vet service, as they call about the bloodwork and also have made weekend phone calls. I think they get better service!

I’ve gathered some beautiful gingham pieces for you to peruse for your Spring closet.
Have a great weekend!

    I love your collection of gingham! I have a couple of tops, a dress and a pair of cropped pants in gingham that I love. Hope you get good news soon on your tests! I have said more than once I would just rather go to our family vet for healthcare! They are so fabulous!

      I love yellow gingham and will be sharing it on the blog soon. I tend to go for the colors that aren’t as traditional- pink, sea blue, mustard yellow. xx

    Those are gorgeous pieces. I love gingham, it’s so pretty and it does remind me of a picnic, which I love. I really need to get some more gingham pieces this spring and summer.
