In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a little summer obsessed, and nothing screams summertime to me like gingham and sundresses. Put the two together, and I’m as happy as a kid on Christmas morning. Well, if Christmas was in July, that is!
After wearing one of my silk scarves tied this way around my neck recently, I decided to give this smaller one a try. I’ve had this scarf for years now, but I actually don’t think it’s been featured on the blog yet. Everybody say “hi” to my red, white, and blue square scarf! I keep hearing that silk scarves are the new statement necklaces, and really I couldn’t be happier about that because I’m a bit of a collector. I can’t help but rummage through a scarf bin when I see one, and I usually end up leaving with a handful of printed pretties.
Typically, when I’m linking to a similar option to something I wear on the blog, I settle on one or two items that are as close as I can find. Well, I fell in love with about ten gingham dresses when I went to search, so today you get a whole widget of options. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for that J.Crew dress to go on sale — I need it!
What patterns scream summer to you? Are you digging the statement scarf trend?
