Summer Vacation Gingham Style

Monday, August 11, 2014

We're at the heart of summer vacation time, and there is no pattern more quintessentially summer - think picnics and barbeques - than gingham.  This fresh and cheerful pattern has moved out of the kitchen and into the world of fashion and decorating.

The key to styling gingham is to wear it with a bit of humor. Allow a touch to peek out from under a sweater, or go full on with a wonderful circle skirt and mary janes. With the addition of a fun sweatshirt or a sparkly necklace, gingham becomes more fashionista than farm girl, so get creative. Here are some beautiful ideas:

Shop similar shirt, skirt

Shop similar shirt, sweater, skirt, necklace
Shop similar skirt, shirt, luggage, bag

Shop similar shirt, sweater, watch

Shop similar shirt, skirt, belt
Shop similar skirt

Shop similar jacket, blouse
Shop similar skirt, sweater, shirt

Shop similar skirt, blouse
Shop similar shirt, necklace

When using this fresh pattern in home decor, pair it with a bold floral in the same color story to elevate its casualness into pure elegance.

Here's another decorating tip that will bring summer inside while you still can: Snip some flowers from outside and place in Ball jars. Tie scraps of fabric around the mouth of the jar; gingham works great for a casual and elegant arrangement.
Have a beautiful week!
