Styling Double Gingham in Summer
Yesssss!  Summer is here and it's calling for ALL the patterns to be worn outside underneath the sun.  Admittedly, I'm still trying to warm to clashing prints, but in the meantime I can happily jump on board the matchy-matchy express.  Right now?  It's all about gingham.  I can't help but associate the pattern with all things lovely.  It works just as well for beautiful afternoons spent in tranquil gardens as it does summer festivals, candyfloss in hand.  The print is ideal for taking from desk-to-date, as well as being downplayed for shopping stints.  My point is, there are very few occasions that gingham doesn't suit.  But how about double gingham?  Like I said, I'm not quite ready for clashing prints, but I can embrace the same print in clashing colours.  We've spent all winter swooning over double denim, but now it's time for you to shine in double gingham.  Do your thaaaaang, babe.

Ugh, I'm just dying over this gingham top.  There's everything to love about it: cropped design, elasticated waist, embroidery, ruffled overlay, bardot style.  Everything.  I wish other colour variations were hanging prettily in my wardrobe.  Speaking of which, I've started learning how to sew over the past couple of months and I'm becoming hugely excited at the prospect of being able to (eventually) make something similar in other colours to wear!  Anyway, back to the topic at hand - double gingham.  There's something about matching prints and co-ord sets in general that are utterly adorable, and yet simultaneously seem to exude confidence.  Honestly, about 90% of the times I've stopped someone to compliment them on their outfit, it's because of a co-ord set.  Bonus points for gingham.

Okay, I've clearly made it obvious where I stand when it comes to gingham and matching prints.  How about you?  Do you love styling co-ord sets and/or matching patterns, or do you prefer clashing prints?  Let me know in the comments below!
