gingham + espadrilles

You always hear about the merits of the little black dress… but a little gingham dress? Twice as sweet, in my opinion!bGinghamDress-7 bGinghamDress-3 bGinghamDress-14 bGinghamDress-20 bGinghamDress-11 bGinghamDress-12 bGinghamDress-6 bGinghamDress-18 bGinghamDress-2 bGinghamDress-22DRESS   gingham sundress (wearing size 2, under $40)   |   SHOES   black espadrille wedges   |   SUNGLASSES   black rayban sunglasses   |   BRACELET   david yurman bracelet   |   LIP COLOR   heatwave lipstick + scandal gloss

The undeniable southern charm of gingham always makes the pattern a must-have for me, and seeing it on this sweet, mid-length silhouette (coupled with the under $40 price tag) had me clicking “check out” in a tizzy! I love the fresh look the length provides, especially since I gravitate towards shorter hemlines because of my petite height. Doing something a little different, and a little longer this time around was so fun!

The summery feel of the gingham sundress gave me the perfect excuse to break out my new favorite pair of espadrilles. I’ve been on the lookout for a pair of close-toed, lace espadrilles since last year, so I nearly did a backflip to find these beauties. I adore the classic, fun vibe they bring to the table. Won’t they be fun for the summer ahead?

Wishing y’all a beautiful Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by!

Love from Texas,


Join in on the fun!

    Trying to decide how the top of this fits- I see you’re wearing a size 4. Would you say it’s cut true to size? Seems like a much fuller bottom, so I’d want the top to fit. For reference, I’m 5’5, and usually wear between a 6-8 dress size.
