More Likely: Gingham

All of a sudden it doesn’t seem like such a fantasy to think about spring outfits. As collective survivors of the seemingly longest, most dismal winter of memory (extra survival points to those in epic weather areas), I think it is safe to begin dreaming of open-toed shoes, bare-legged skirts and days without winter coats.

As I was perusing my Spring 2015 designer runway pins, I spotted this lovely Michael Kors outfit. Gingham is one of those prints we’ll be seeing more of this spring/summer and it’s got great graphic appeal. It evokes picnics, warm weather strolls and eating gelato.

While the off shoulder top and midi skirt works straight off the runway, I found another equally cool gingham outfit, below. In my world, the button-down shirt and white jeans are more likely to get pulled for week-to-week rotation. I also really like her choice of lighter brown accents with the printed shirt. You’ll notice that both the runway and street style outfits do brown belts and bags with the black print. Uh huh, nothing gets by me.

Happily both outfit inspirations work for a variety of age groups (minus the cropped top for my 40+ self, but that’s easily remedied).

Here’s to warmer weather!

“And the Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley
