Today my friend, Kellyann, This Blonde Shopping Bag, and I are stying Gingham looks. Gingham is one of those prints that just is so classic, it doesn’t go out of style. If you missed some of my shopping picks and previous gingham looks, read Friday’s post-Gingham Picks for Spring.
We decided to each style our own outfits and include Gingham in the looks. It really is fun when you can collaborate with another blogger friend and share your inspiration. So go visit her blog too, I ‘ve been very fortunate to get to know her this year.
I bought this top from Mango ( yes, most things I am buying are from there) as I loved the fuller sleeves and subdued mustard yellow gingham print, a bit different from the traditional navy blue or red gingham.
Truffy is photobombing! 🙂
If my hubby had kept shooting, we would have had a parade of photobombers! It seems “our spot” is getting more and more popular. I expected a VW bug to roll up at the entrance of the bridge and the inevitable clown car empty with people of varying heights. The parade would continue with teenagers, bikes and other dog walkers.
What can you do? You just have to be patient and take the shots when you can. My little fur bears joined us as we often go out for lunch or drinks after the photoshoot. The “ball and chain” leashes make me laugh, as they stand like doggie statues not moving when its on them. They really can walk around! I do think, Gibson and Truffles were happy to see the sun and get outside for a breezy, easy afternoon.
I just couldn’t resist the soft muted mustard yellow gingham pattern on this button down blouse, along with the puffier sleeves. It was paired with a pair of high waisted cream pants and straw belt on the Mango website, but you can certainly wear it many ways. Today I styled it with my favorite jean skirt, bought last year at Loft.
My jewelry completes the look with rattan circular earrings and a gold disc necklace that was gifted to my a few yrs ago by Slyca Designs. Although I have quite a few pairs of spring shoes, my favorite gold flecked espadrilles seemed fitting for this look.
