Give Me Gingham













A few black and white today with the noise turned up a tad since I felt these photos looked a quite vintage. Can't go wrong with a classic gingham dress right? This dress appears on the ol' blog pretty often, but I can't help but reach for it time and again, even if the neckline is annoyingly low meaning I am always adjusting it!

Since I am always going on about matching accessory sets for vintage styling, I thought I'd try and style this dress with as much navy blue as possible! I don't have a navy blue necklace however, so when I decided to wear the white necklace I also switched out the planned all navy pumps for my two toned Chelsea Crew t-straps from Royal Vintage Shoes. Goodness do I love these shoes! They are so comfortable too, which is always good of course. I picked up this navy box shaped handbag back in my old college town on a day trip last year, and I have been on the hunt for a more traditionally shaped navy bag ever since! This one is pretty cute, so I don't know why I am so concerned about having a different navy bag, but you know...I love to shop so ehhhhh.

I am writing these words early in the week, as while you read this I should be getting my tourist on in Burgundy France! I'm sure I'll have many photos to share with you soon! <3
