Is there a more classic color combination than navy and red? The older I get, the more I believe the answer to that is a definite no. It’s truly a timeless mix you can never go wrong with in any sort of combination – especially when gingham is involved.

Speaking of timeless, I bought this shirt (mine is old Gap, the one I linked is identical!) almost a year and a half ago and swear it has become one of, if not the most-worn item in my closet. You last saw it paired with white here, where the same theme of red accents was definitely prevalent. (I’m telling you… I’m obsessed with this navy + red thing..)

To usher in a more fall-ish feel, however, I swapped the summery skirt for a pair of tailored navy shorts (on sale for $15 right now!) and added a red pout and pointy pumps! I managed to snag this pair from Forever21 (I’m newly re-obsessed) for a mere twenty bucks, and I must say they rival this far more expensive pair quite nicely.

Are you drawn to any certain color combinations this fall? I’d love to hear in the comments! Just click the little bubble at the top right of this post if you’d like to leave your insight, which I must say is much appreciated. :) Thanks for making me a part of your day! Now let’s go have a great week.

Love from Texas,


P.S. Are you following along on Twitter @LSSouthern? If so, you would have seen these new black Ray Bans were a total impulse buy brought on by 1 am delirium…. I need to be careful, because I’m digging my sleep-shopping skills! So excited to have these for fall/winter!

Join in on the fun!


  1. Love love love red and navy gingham paired together. I have been on the lookout for red ballet flats but can’t find a pair! Loving those heels.

      Topshop has some gorgeous lace-up ones that I just picked up. I think they’re called the “Ghillie” style! They’re a little different but definitely eye-catching and fun.

    I definitely wear a lot of red and navy, not just in the summer, but year round. I also love army green and burgundy in the fall.

    I literally wore this outfit today, except my gingham shirt wasn’t a crop top. You look so cute!
