Memorial Day, Gingham Style, 3 Ways.

I hope your long Memorial Day Weekend was fantastic and you all got some sun and perhaps a tan, too. 

I debated whether I should post these two Gingham Outfits in two separate posts. I ultimately chose to post them together because they are relevant to one-another since they show two different ways to style Gingham and wear Red, White+Navy for Memorial Day and all of our gingham pieces plus several other elements on each outfit, are from Old Navy. The outfit with the White Jeans and Navy+White Gingham Tank Top is a little dressier. The outfit with the Red+White Gingham Romper is very casual. I do apologize about all the many photos today but I am so far behind with Outfits, plus I am challenging myself to wear a different dress all month of June and blog them all. That is 30 dresses in total and I will start off a day earlier and post one tomorrow, so yeah today it's a two-fer or better yet a three-fer post, since Vivian is showing you all a third way to wear Gingham, ala toddler style.

As soon as I saw this Navy+White Gingham Tank Top at Old Navy's website, I knew I wanted it. Even better that it came with matching shorts - I ordered both. The top is slightly cropped. The oversized gingham and the fact that it is in white+navy make it so fresh and crisp for Summer, a little preppy and nautical too. I decided to play off with the Navy and White so I wore my Zara White Skinny Jeans and a Clutch in Navy while my Kitten Heel Pumps are in Electric Blue. My pop of red is very subtle: lipstick and the polka dots on my Neon Yellow Bow that I added to the side of my bun. Coincidentally enough, last time I wore these pumps (3 months ago) I paired them with the same clutch and my outfit had a lot of navy, too.

I love a little plaid skirt. I think they evoke the classic and preppy look of a school girl so I bought Vivian's adorable plaid skirt for a steal at Old Navy. Then, literally a couple of days later I saw my romper online and ordered it. I love the large plaid pattern in an oversized gingham and the light linen material which makes both pieces great to wear all Summer long on a casual day off. I wore my romper with Navy Flip Flops (also from Old Navy) to add the blue I was missing from my patriotic outfit and I paired Vivian's Skirt with a Navy+White Graphic Floral Tank Top (also from Old Navy). I loved how cute Vivian's outfit came out. We ended up wearing these outfits yesterday (on Memorial Day Sunday) for a hot day off, of 85+ degree weather. Are you wearing Gingham this Spring/Summer and how do you style yours? Which of my two outfits do you like better?
