Sunflowers and Gingham

Pairing a perfect early fall activity with an end of summer classic style! Keep reading to find out more!

There is this amazing sunflower field in Yellow Springs, Ohio. My husband and I have lived in Dayton for almost 8 years and admittedly this was our first time visiting.

The field is gorgeous! However I had no idea what to expect visiting a sunflower field. There are tons of bees! Thankfully the little terrors are drunk on pollen and could care less about us moving through the field. I did not expect the flowers to be so tall or itchy either. My sweet four year old plowed through rows taller than him. Such a trooper!

The problem with tall flowers is it makes it impossible for this novice blogger to take a full outfit shot in the field. I really am not sure what I was thinking? Totally should have Pinterest that idea first. I took a picture of my shoes thinking maybe it would help visualize the look. Probably does not but maybe? Just go with it! The flowers are too pretty not to share so I’m posting anyway.

I wore a gingham button up I purchased years ago from Kohl’s with my favorite jeans ev-er. I am so beyond excited to fit back into my favorite AG jeans since baby girl was born! {happy dance} I pulled on my new obessisson: these olive peep toe booties. Also probably not the best choice to wear heels to march through a sunflower field. All things I am taking note for next year!

My bag is from Heart Mercantile. It’s a fun earthy tone in a faux suede & I am totally loving it for fall!  

Gingham 3 Ways

The school year started today for my district. And while summer break might be over for the kids, I’m holding on to the next few weeks! Before we break out the sweaters and booties (and I can’t WAIT for that! Fall. Is. My. Favorite.) I’ve have three ways to wear gingham that are perfect for the end of summer. Scroll down to see my looks! 

 

Gingham is one of my favorite plaids! It’s great in all the colors but black and white is just so classic and stylish. Wear it to work or wear it to play- black and white gingham will always looks polished!

Look 1: Pairing this cute gingham midi lace up dress (that is currently half off!) with perfect white sneaks and fun tassel earrings. Grab your favorite denim jacket to complete this look! Perfect for a day at the park with the kids!

Look 2: Taking gingham to the mani with easy to apply nail wraps for a week long gingham party! I picked this super soft ruffled one shoulder cotton tee with some distressed denim shorts and comfy slides. BONUS: Target is running a buy one get one half off on women’s shoe’s right now! Take this outfit while tackling errands and don’t forget the cold brew run!

Look 3: I’ve been lusting over this one shoulder gingham long sleeve top for a month (totally should have bought when it was 50% off!). Pair it with some distressed relaxed jeans, block strappy sandals and a cute clutch. Date night ready in a flash!
