It's no news that we're mad for gingham this summer (gosh, I wish that had a good rhyme like "mad for plaid"), but it's so versatile and fun. This pink skirt is a super fun and whimsical with a very retro feel. Kind of a sophisticated Elly May Clampett. Just call me Molly May.
A good solid black or navy gingham is so classic, but a bubblegum pink gingham makes for an unexpected and ultra feminine look.
A lace off the shoulder top was a fun texture balance to the skirt, and the cut of it helped modernize the look. Soft waves and nude platforms also helped bring the look into this century.
Large white sunnies, a baby pink lip and large vintage earrings tied in more of the retro feel. It's all about the balance of old and new in my opinion. I love to be inspired by, and incorporate, vintage items, and update them so they look modern and not too costume-y. Still a little, though ;)
A mint purse was the perfect pastel accompaniment to finish off the dreamy sherbet look.
