I’ll be honest — I never considered gingham 100% my thing.
Too preppy. Too young. Too much.
Then I came across this blown-out, large-scale, gingham dress online — at TJ MAXX of all places! I immediately loved the oversized graphic pattern, the unusual neckline, the drop waist and yes, the monochromatic color way. I figured for under $30 and free shipping, I had nothing to lose.
What I’m Wearing:
When paired with a sharp, architectural bag, a menswear inspired cardigan and borrowed-from-the-boys loafers, the gingham lost its fussiness and melded into something way more modern and definitely more me.
While the Cleveland weather has been less than cooperative, this layered style has allowed me to get my spring fashion fix. However, I have a feeling that you’ll be seeing this dress a lot this summer — more likely with my favorite LEATHER SNEAKERS and my go-to DENIM JACKET, or even on its own with SUEDE SANDALS.
Now, my pale pasty legs… not quite sure what to do about those.
Thank goodness for TAN TOWELS.
