Gingham Dress For Spring

How did April get here so quickly? I’m not complaining though because I have been looking forward to enjoying spring flowers and warmer weather.  Today’s OOTD is all about this cute little gingham dress that just had to come home with me after catching my eye this past Saturday at Forever 21.  It’s versatile and easy to style with leggings, skinnies or a pair of sandals on a summer day.  I also picked up this boho inspired embossed flap-top crossbody and if you are looking to add a bag or two to your collection F21 will not disappoint.  I had to stop myself from buying all of the bags, this season their bag collection is stellar from very classic styles, to bright colours, designer dupes, and more casual totes and crossbodies.  I also bought this simple black flap-top bag for everyday use. I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally wear my denim jacket and not a heavy winter coat, I think the touch of denim went perfectly with the gingham print and tan accessories.

Now how cute is my silver black druzy gemstone necklace?! This simple and chic necklace is a handmade piece by Tara whom is the owner of an Etsy shop called Starletta.  I ‘met’ Tara on Instagram and love her jewelry which features colourful beads and gemstones.

    Hello Marta!!! I have loved Gingham since I was a little girl. Growing up, my mom used to me make me and my sister Gingham dresses that we both loved and wore a lot. The dress you are wearing today is super pretty and, like you said, super versatile too. Adding the denim jacket was super chic idea and a great way to add dimension to the look (plus it keeps you warm too!). I don’t see any snow in your pictures so I am assuming temperatures in Canada are getting warmer (Yae!!!). May this Easter Sunday be filled with lots of beautiful moments, love and blessings. Enjoy the day with your beautiful family Marta:-) You deserve it!!! XOXO, Jeannette

    Gingham has certainly come a long way from being instantly recognised as outdoor picnic tablecloth. And the simple yet striking way you’ve paired it with denim and leather is quite lovely.
