Mixing Spring Gingham with Winter Fair Isle.

These days I am living in a world between two seasons. Today for example is wet, cold, gray, Hunter-boot, Beanie-wearing type of weather. But yesterday it was pretty warm with a high of 62 degrees, warm airs of wind and a mostly-clear sky. For example, I really wanted to wear a cute Outfit to work today but I have to keep in mind all the walking I have to do outside and bundle up instead. I haven't quite transitioned my closet yet but I do always leave out some pieces interchangeable for all seasons. Such as Classic, Dark-Colored Work Pants or a Gingham Shirt. Today, I took one of my pairs of Dressy Pants and my one and only Gingham Shirt (I need more Gingham in my life!!) and paired them together, adding another layer on top of the Shirt - a Fair Isle Sweater, Gingham is of course supposed to be one of the biggest trends of 2015 (hello, when is it ever NOT a trend?!). But Gingham is definitely mostly a Spring and/or Summer Pattern and Fair Isle is mostly a Winter and/or Christmas pattern, but I made the two work together, don't you think?
Sorry about the disheveled ponytail. I snapped these very quickly after work.
And Gingham pairs so well with Pearls so that's what I wore on my neck and ears.

I am also linking up with Carrie who is doing a Spring Challenge this month (see the button below) and featuring Gingham as one of the Spring essentials. Check out how she paired Gingham with Floral!


Have a Great Day You All and Happy almost-Spring! LOL


  1. Spring is hard weather wise. It seems to fluctuate so much. I love the print mixing you have done here. Makes me a little sad my sweater wearing days are over for now.

    Love, Iris

  4. Love your gingham Ada, I think it springs up the sweater for sure!

  5. Spring, get your sh*t together! It's been very confused in my neck of the woods, too, hopping between warm and sunny to torrential, cold rain. Grr. Cute sweater!

  6. Cute layered look! Spring is so hard when it comes to weather. Layered looks like this one are perfect for managing the fluctuating temperatures

  14. It's between seasons here too and I find it so hard to get dressed. 50s and sunny yesterday and rainy and 70 today. Can I get a mix of both? I like the added gingham for a hint of spring!

  15. I am having a hard time deciding what to wear with the cold/warm temps, too! I love your fair isle sweater, I have one that is kind of similar, but in black. These patterns look great together!!
