Details: gingham top (handmade) // polka dot jeans (Mossimo, thrifted) // white denim jacket (hand-me-down) // leather sandals (Kork-Ease via Nordstrom Rack) // cupcake earrings (ModCloth) // timepiece & owl pendants (vintage) // bead bracelet (gift)

This week’s theme is all about gingham – one of my favorite spring prints – brought to us by Carissa of Carissa Knits!  I got really excited when I saw the theme for this week, but then I realized that I own very little gingham, BUT I did remember this pretty mint green gingham fabric in my stash.  So, a few hours later, I had sewed up this super easy swing top!

I paired the top with my equally fun thrifted polka dot jeans, added a mix of delicate and vintage accessories, and finished the look off with my retro (and so comfortable) sandals.  I actually wore this outfit for my birthday yesterday.  Derek took these photos outside of Arthur’s – the restaurant where we went out for breakfast.  It’s pretty much an old folks’ hangout, but they have really great french toast and fried chicken and waffles!

As always, thanks for reading!

        Oh my gosh really?! I would have never guessed that it’s two vintage pendants. I might have to steal this idea and be on the look out for pretty pendants I can pair together. I swear you are so creative I absolutely love it :)

          Hahaha aww thanks!! Yeah the little watch is an old hand-me-down and the owl I think I found on Etsy or Ebay for pretty cheap! You should definitely keep an eye for little unique things like that – that’s what makes personal style personal! ;)

    Gingham is great, but hand-made gingham is even better! And I love it with the polka dot jeans and the embroidery on the jacket. So feminine, but in a totally casual way. I’m so privileged to have influenced your birthday outfit. I hope it was a fantastic day!
