Good Morning friends!
Well, the last past summers, gingham print has gained even more popularity. I too, have been influenced, by all of the pretty gingham dresses, blouses and shoes i have seen throughout the blog world. I shared my pink ruffled gingham top here in this post, and today, I am wearing one of my favorite off the shoulder cobalt blue large patterned gingham print dress. Beside it being a large scaled gingham, what else is making a statement in this look? Well, my new cobalt floral earrings, of course!
Upcoming Summer Concert
Before I go into the outfit, let me tell you about something I am excited about this coming weekend… I will post about it after the fact. Hubby and I are going to see 2 of my favorite rock bands coming to Charlotte’s Spectrum Center…. Journey and Def Leppard! Yes! I LOVE both of these bands, my favorite album from Def Leppard being “Photograph” and Journey when Steve Perry WAS Journey. Rock and Roll! I’ll share a post next week of o I was an MTV girl,and aficionado, and know all of the lyrics to 98% of the tunes. “Foolin….FFF Foolin….. and “Here I am with Open Arms…hoping you see, what your love means to me, open arms.” I loved these bands back in the day, and they can still ROCK! Let’s see, I saw Journey with my best friend in Pittsburgh, when we were 17. That’s when I thought concert tees were expensive at $25 a pop. LOL! I need to make sure, I have my lighter in hand, and my hair freshly styled to “headbang”! oh yeah!
My Outfit- “Picnic Anyone?”
I bought this dress last year from Banana Republic, and loved the style, a simple waist tie and off the shoulder look. It is so comfortable! I loved the larger gingham print too. When i decided what shoes to wear, I was initially going to wear my white lace espadrilles, which would have worked nicely, but I wanted some additional color, and wore my blush pink shoes by Andre Assous, I received this year.
I am also wearing my new sunnies from EyeBuydirect and bought another pair as well. I have to look for the small sizes to fit my face, and this “Ray Ban style” really appealed to me. I added to the boldness of the earrings and gingham by wearing a magenta lipcolor by MAC.
During the Memorial Day sales, I bought a few new pairs of earrings, and these had “Jess” written all over them! The beautiful color and floral style would be worn easily with my current wardrobe. I have actually been having more fun buying statement earrings lately than necklaces, so they are here making their debut. I think of a simple outfit- lighter denim or denim shorts, soft white tee and these earrings. Simple, but statement making!
I had to take my circle straw bag, as put the gingham and bag together and you are off to a picnic! Now, where is that basket, cheese, hummus and bottle of wine?
