It’s Spring – or so they say, nyc is still pretty chilly –
So now is the perfect time to start testing out some of the seasons new trends!
One that was all over the runway for the third year in a row is gingham. Gingham is great – this perfect picnic print puts everyone in a good mood!
Designers like Derek Lam
and Oscar De La Renta
showcased gingham prints with a cool twist in their SS14 collections, but this fashion-forward trend is super wearable and can easily translate into everyday outfits! To prove it to you, I’m sharing twelve ways to wear it this season.

My printed obsession is nothing new, I’ve had a life long love affair with gingham! All my checkered dreams came true when I picked up this orange dress last Spring! I can’t wait for warmer weather so I can wear it again! Full post here: spoiler alert, Waffles makes an appearance!XO Courtney
nothing says summer in new york like a good old fashioned picnic!
despite my perfect picnic attire, i have yet to picnic in the city! but i did spend the day with a hansom french man!
i feel in love with gingham last year when miu miu featured this playful print for their spring collection, and i still kick myself for not splurging on a pair!
although my picnic ready dress serves as this look’s main attraction, some fabulous && affordable statement jewelry from tomorrow’s unknown made for the perfect finishing touches…
i’m loving this colored link bracelet
! it’s a fresh, new take on the link trend and currently on sale for $18 (originally $28) at tomorrows unknown
! i’ll soon be investing in every color to pair with my pavé link!
this amazing necklace
is also from tomorrow’s unknown
! i’m crazy about the antique feel, beading detail and the bright colors… oh and not to mention the affordable price point!
this dress will now always have a special place in my heart because i wore it when i became reunited with my best friend. she was serving on a mission, so i hadn’t see or talked to her for 18 months (only letters). i went to pick her up from the airport, wearing this dress and her first words to me (through tears) were “you look like a picnic basket”, so now I can’t look at it without cracking a smile! i’m so happy to have her back!
