Gingham

Whether it’s tops, shorts, home goods, or accessories, I love me some gingham. This past week I was wasting time on the J. Crew website when I came across these adorable green gingham shorts. I knew I had to have them. Luckily I had ordered a jacket that I was returning and decided to do an exchange instead. These shorts are linen and have an elastic tie waist that can be tightened using ties that are on the side. However, these shorts run very large and I went down a size (x-small). If you happen to love the style of these shorts but not the pattern, fear not! they come in solid colors too.  I also snagged this gingham shirt in aqua. It’s on sale with an additional 30% off using the code SHOPNOW.

I know it’s only July, but I’m already dreaming of fall. I love everything about fall, from the clothes, to the food, the holidays, the outdoor activities, the colors, just everything. So while others are still planning beach trips and spending lazy Saturdays at the pool, I’m thinking of ways to transition some summer pieces, like skirts, into fall pieces. Because let’s face it, depending on where you live, the first month of fall is always still hot. I came up with this outfit and I must say, I’m pretty darn in love with it. Maybe it’s time to go shopping…. jcrew.com is offering an additional 30% off and the sweater AND skirt are both on sale. Side note about the shoes, I’ve been coveting these sandals since last year but they are always sold out in my size. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed though. Happy Tuesday, everyone! We are one more day closer to the weekend. #thankgoodness

Fluted Skirt + Linen Surfboard Sweaters

ImageJ. Crew’s pre-summer line came in last week and I love the vintage surf that was used as inspiration for the line. The line is “beach-ey” without sacrificing too much of prep or classic pieces. Of course Jenna Lyons through in tons of neon, and while I am still not on board with the whole neon trend, I can appreciate some of the pieces, like the super soft scoop neck tees in neon.  I love the outfit above with either the navy or buff Surfboard sweaters, and since I couldn’t decide which sweater to display the outfit with I posted both. To be honest, I will most likely get both colors, I just love them. J. Crew also has a cute linen sweater in a neutral with a navy blue crab.
