The Perfect Gingham Dress

Happy Friday! I’ve had quite the week: I’ve been on vacation, turned 26, and have been having the most fun ever. Have you seen my Instagram? Swoon worthy y’all. Can I go on vacation every week? The best thing about vacation, is getting to wear vacation clothes. You know, the clothes that don’t scream I work in an office all day? I was excited to break out this gingham dress and give it a spin around town!

I’m not going to lie. The first time I saw the gingham dress, I thought “wow, that looks like a picnic blanket.” Because doesn’t most gingham? And I actually kept browsing before I went back for it. After I tried it on, however, my thoughts changed dramatically and I LOVED it on! It’s perfect for hot summer days and slightly less hot summer nights!

Also, in addition to not being a fan of the “picnic blanket” print, I wasn’t a fan of the off-the-shoulder trend–I know I’m slightly behind the times y’all. But this dress is actually great at not riding up your shoulders which is a major plus in my book.

I love pairing this dress with all of the accessories and mixing neutrals with black and white–tassel earrings, Kendra, and arm candy of course!

    Off the shoulder is everything to me right now. While I was worried about the whole sliding up thing originally, I found it hasn’t really affected me yet! Also, loving this dress. Gingham is coming back and I’m so glad! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I LOVE this dress and I LOVE your earrings! I bought my first gingham last summer but I could definitely stand to add a few more pieces to my closet!
