We can maybe chalk it up to my East Coast roots, but I’m always drawn to a bold gingham check. And I’ve been v. excited by all of the gingham from J. Crew in particular this season (especially this maxi. It will be mine.).
My top gingham picks for this spring:
+Veronica Beard has been slaying it in her most recent seasons, and I’m dying over this pretty ruched dress ($495).
+Alexandre Birman has become one of my favorite footwear designers. This stunning gingham-accented Clarita sandal ($495) makes clear why.
+An OTS lovely from a new Aussie line I just discovered ($121), Paddo to Palmy.
+The cutest gingham flats I ever did see ($215) from new-to-me footwear line Josefinas. All of their shoes are hand-made in Portugal by “master shoemakers.” Love love love.
+J.Crew’s gingham lace-up flats ($138) are SO fun.
+Those pretty gingham pumps ($118) from Banana I mentioned awhile ago–even the smallest size was too big for my midget foot (wahhhh), but one of you lovely readers mentioned you snagged a pair and they look AMAZING on you! (I see you, S.!)
+Gingham top ($49) — love the pouf on the sleeve.
More Gingham Goodness…
+This Anthro dress ($158) makes me want to throw a picnic.
+This gingham top also caught my eye (on ridic sale for 70% off! — $47) because of its unique cut.
+For your #mini, how adorable is this ruffled gingham one-piece swimsuit ($30)?! (You could coordinate with this chic off-the-shoulder, Brigitte Bardot-esque J. Crew suit yourself.)
+Not for the faint of heart, but this low-vee Lioness maxi in the prettiest gingham ($80) is the stuff of fashion dreams.
+Banana Republic knows what’s up ($128).
+FINALLY. This gingham bikini looks just like a Marysia!
