Gingham For Summer
I can tell what time of the year it is when gingham prints make their annual appearance.
Without fail gingham ushers in spring and summer with its timeless playful print.
I am drawn to gingham because it is a pattern that combines effortlessly with other patterns.
Depending on the size of the check, gingham can read like texture to the eyes.
The top I’m wearing below is a very small gingham.

The photo below is one of my favourite vintage dresses of all time.
My husband gifted me this ruffled midi gingham skirt when I was in Hong Kong recently.
To make it my own I added some red trim to the bottom hem and the embroidered floral patches.
This may not be a vintage piece but it is one-of-a-kind.
Aren’t the little vintage shoes wonderful?
I discovered them as well as this beauty at Salvation Army recently…
I’ve been buying and seeing lots red lately at the thrift stores. Red is a colour that I didn’t often wear in the past but lately I’m really loving this powerful statement colour.
I picked up this gorgeous vintage blue velvet chair this week from an online estate sale for $35.
It came with a matching foot stool. I still haven’t figured out where I’m going to use the footstool but I knew this chair would be amazing in both my office and bedroom.
Added bonus…it’ll be great for photos : )
Yes, bloggers think of weird crap like that.
