For the Love of Gingham

Posted on: August 14, 2015

I’ve been wanting a few Gingham tops, so when 

I was at Goodwill and saw this one and another in black 

by Old Navy I was smitten.

(my internet was acting up, so I didn’t get to post this yesterday

before I headed to Richmond to drop my college son off for his sophomore year.  )

Not only was it a color I love, but I also wanted it to be larger sized than 

I would normally wear , so I could easily tie it at the waist or

use it in Fall/Winter under a sweater.

I paired it with an orange necklace , I’ve had for awhile and you can’t see very well, but

I am also wearing stud earrings from Walmart that are mock Kate Spade in Coral.

This felt like a wonderful summer combination, but when I get anything new,

my brain is filled with the question,

“How can I wear this across other seasons?”

Quite often I use Pinterest as my Visual Tool to help answer that question.

Gratitude

I am grateful that I slept in later today.  Yes, sleep is not to be taken for granted…

I am grateful for wonderful compassionate friendships. 

I am grateful for a dear friend who loaned a scooter for my son to take while he has to wear a walking boot ,

to tool around campus, should he feel the need for it. 

I am grateful that my niece will have the fun of seeing her cousins apartment as she accompanies us to Richmond. 

I am grateful for my daughter who took it upon herself to order pizza for dinner tonight. 

I am grateful that I got started finalizing homeschooling curriculums and went over the weekly schedule with my son. 

I am grateful that even our DMV has online options for Driver’s Ed for homeschoolers!

Hi Tracey! LOVE the gingham! Looks great with your skirt 🙂 Now I need to look for a black & white or red & white gingham blouse for fall/winter! Thanks for your post! Have a great weekend

Good Luck Gina, hope you find them. It really is a nice print to add to your wardrobe. Thanks for commenting! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

I have been trying to add more gingham shirts to my wardrobe, but they aren’t the easiest to find. 😦 I Love wearing mine with sweaters and jackets in the fall and winter. I really like how you tied yours at the waist – may just have to try that! Stop on by and link up with Charming Friday – Susan and I would love to have you!

Jennie, I agree they aren’t easy to find. I really lucked out on my thrifting!

This top is wonderful and a perfect item for more than one season. I love button downs for that reason. This past week I have put together several outfits with ones that I own…to be worn in the upcoming days/weeks. You look very pretty in yours and I really like this necklace with it.
