Gingham, Please

I am a huge fan of gingham. My style leans much more classic than preppy so I don’t always love the things gingham are featured on but MAN, y’all. Gingham is absolutely thriving this season and I’ve never seen it done in a cooler way.

first, here are a couple of my standouts in a slider before we move to the full shop because these. are. spectacular.

I pick up a gingham swimsuit just about every year and there are more options than ever right now. I can’t get over the idea of gingham dresses with my low white Vejas for chasing the kids, sandals for date night or high tops to toughen them up a bit.

Here are the things I would call essential as I tackle fitness goals from home (well, technically my parent’s home since our house is still being renovated after the flooding and we’re on week nine of living here. Let’s do this.)

Spring Wardrobe Roundup for Littles

It’s always this time of year when I look down and realize my kids look like they’re wearing clothes pulled out of a lost and found bin. Pants four inches too short, shirts a bit too tight and everything is stained somehow. If this is sounding a little bit familiar, look no further than this blog post.
