Making a Splash in Gingham

The gingham skirt is a classic but it definitely seems to be having a "moment" right now. They seem to be everywhere for spring! While I already have some gingham skirts in my closet, I realized I was sadly lacking when it came to anything in black and white gingham. For that reason, I went ahead and purchased this tie-waist version from J. Crew Factory.

If you know anything about me, you know that I am seldom content with just a simple black and white outfit so, obviously, I wanted to add some color to this black and white print. To do that, I decided to do a little pattern mixing with a multi-colored polka dot tee. I also added my new favorite sandals for summer which are these suede bow heels. The feminine pink bows are the perfect complement to the ruffle featured on the skirt.

Last of all, this color streaked wall is one of my all time favorite walls. It has every color in the rainbow, so it will always match what you are wearing. The only issue, or at least so I thought, with the wall is that it's a parking lot, so sometimes a car will be parked in front of the part I want to use as a background. Well, I was recently told by someone who came to take photos of her kids here that a security guard is now on duty telling people that they need to have a permit to photograph the wall! This made me nervous but I decided to try anyway. Luckily, we took some quick pictures and drove off the premises before we could be stopped, so it all worked out. I guess these walls are really getting high security!
