a little gingham goes a long way come summer. especially a pair of gingham pants. and this pair is no different. dress them up with a blazer and they’re ready to zip off to work. or dress them down as in today’s ootd for a casual day out. it appears i’ve been on a black and white kick this week. but today, i jazzed up that color combo with a pair of red flats. and i couldn’t resist a subtle pattern mix with a gingham cardi draped over my shoulders. now, i’m ready to hit the grocery store (and a few other stops) in preparation for the long weekend. who’s ready to kick off summer?

Gingham will always be around…nice summer look. It’s almost like a neutral…mix and match patterns. I could replicate this look with my navy gingham pants and red flats. I did find the gentleman who has the board named specifically for you…”Ageless….Beth Djalaili”. His name is Michael Tatum. Needless to say, you made a lasting impression! Enjoy your day…we have rain and more rain, with cool temps. I hope the weather clears a bit for the 500 on Sunday. xoxo P.S. It appears that Mr Tatum has taken that board down. ???
i went over to check and it appears that my board has been taken down. c’est le vie!
It was actually a lovely board. I have the original email from Pinterest. You have admirers! xoxo
This really works! I have one gingham piece and it is an pink denim jacket (it’s lined in Gingham). Now I feel a deficit in my wardrobe. lol. The red scarf is so sassy!
isn’t this scarf cute? it’s from the talbots collection for ‘dress for success’ i think i might be jealous you have a pink gingham jacket…
Mixing ginghams & gingham pants. Terrific!!
we mix stripes all the time now so why not try gingham! happy to hear you liked it.
I love black and white gingham–and the pops of red are perfect. Looks very fresh and classic.
i thought these pants were too cute to pass up, sue! and any chance i get to slip into my red shoes i take!
obsessed with gingham at the moment!
I am dying for this entire outfit, this is so ME and so YOU too!! Of course you look dynamite in everything!! Pinned for my future!!!
