Gingham is one of my favorite summer prints. The retro fabric has been worn by the likes of Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, and Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, all fashion icons in their own right. It's breathable, lightweight, and adds a mod twist to any summertime outfit. I fell in love with this gingham off-the-shoulder top I found at Zara. The sleeves' tie detailing had me swooning and the silhouette is the perfect blend of billowy and structured. I paired the girly gingham blouse with raw hem, light wash denim shorts, also from Zara, to balance out the look. I like how the pinstripe pockets peek out to add a bit of pattern play.

To complete the outfit, I chose a black mini bag, sandals, and accessories. Ray-Ban 'Clubmasters' and a pop of MAC's 'Up The Amp' on the lips are the finishing touch. It's all good with gingham.



  1. I love your Zara off the shoulder top. I just bought one in a tee shirt version and striped. They're the best. Your black mini bag is adorable but I could never fit all my stuff in it :)

    Also, just read that you're from Boston!

    1. Thank you so much! That tee sounds really cute! My mini bag fits a surprising amount of stuff, and I am someone who feels empty without carrying all my things. I can fit a full size water bottle, sunglasses case, my phone, small wallet, keys, lipstick, and more inside this bag. The size is really deceiving. The Rebecca Minkoff 'MAB Tote Mini' is a total life changer :) And yes! I love living in Boston!

  2. Loved this outfit! I recently just bought my first purchase from Zara and love it!
