coral gingham set

If you’re anything like me, you have “oh, that’s cute” moments… and then you have “that. has. to. be. mine.” moments in the shopping world. The “oh, that’s cute” is great and all… until, that is, you find the showstopper. And all of the sudden, you don’t know why you have a closet full of “that’s cute” when all you’ve been needing this whole time is the showstopper.

Friends. Meet the showstopper, the “that. has. to. be. mine.”… this gingham blouse and shorts set.













TOP   gingham pleated off the shoulder top (wearing size XS)   |   SHORTS   gingham pleated shorts (wearing size S which are a little big on me)   |   SHOES   nude wedges (can’t recommend these enough)   |   BAG   kate spade crossbody (other colors available here)   |   BRACELET   tory burch gold wrap   |   WATCH   gold watch

Classically feminine, quintessentially southern, appropriately modern… it’s all of my favorite style attributes wrapped into one big bundle of charm. And I’m just not sure there’s really that much more to say about it. It’s just that good.

Fun little heads up… since the blouse and shorts are separate pieces, the number of outfits you can get out of this little set is truly somethin’ else! Throw the blouse on with cutoffs and cowboy boots for a country concert, or white jeans and wedges for a fun dinner with friends. Then you’ve got the shorts, which pair perfectly with a simple white blouse and sandals for vacation or errands around town. So many choices!

Wishing everyone a happy hump day as we tackle the very middle of the week! It’s been an up and down one for me, and I’ve found myself listening to the album “Magnolia” by Ellie Holcomb over and over. Such beautiful, soft, sweet encouragement. Hope it brightens some of your days! (My favorite at the moment is “Anchor of Hope.”)

Love from Texas,
