Gingham on Gingham

Gingham has been hot, hot, hot this summer, and the great thing about it is that it can perfectly transition into fall. Which, apparently we're doing now. Transition out of summer is always bittersweet, but maybe gingham can help it be less bitter and more sweet.

I picked up this little gingham jumper while on a trip to Ireland last fall, and I always struggle with what to wear under it. Until now, that is! Matching sets are all the rage, and this top with gingham accents and the jumper were a match made in heaven.

I took this whole look in a retro direction with a baby beehive hairstyle and a pastel pink lip. I typically take any chance I can get to make an outfit more retro, but gingham works especially well the mod 60s vibe.

This checked pattern ensemble is equally perfect for casual picnics and classy enough for a cute date night look. The black cutout wedges kick up the fancy factor a bit, but this outfit could be easily be paired with tennis shoes, too, for more of a daytime look.

Do you have any favorite patterns or pieces for the transition from summer to fall?
