Trendy Tuesday - Gingham

I think it is so fun that Danielle and her co-workers do Trendy Tuesday each week.  One of my co-workers tried to institute "Flannel Friday" every week, but I didn't have any flannel.  I think mostly 3 of the guys participated.  Anyway...  today's theme is Gingham and/or cords.  I don't have any corduroy items at the moment, so I went with my one gingham shirt.  And I got my inspiration from this pin.  

I really want a blue/white gingham shirt.  This one is dark blue and light blue, and I just don't like it as much as I want to.  Plus it is a really flimsy fabric and doesn't look as sharp as others I have seen.  So this is an item on my wish list.  I think this popover from Target would be perfect, but it is not available in my size online or in stores.  On Friday, I went to Old Navy looking for this option, but it was really boxy on me, so I ended up getting a random polka dot blouse instead.  I keep hoping to catch a 40% off sale at JCF and snag this one, because I'm not willing to pay $50.  So the search for the perfect gingham button-up continues.

  1. Yes. yes. yes. I love this color combination, and I had to pin the look for my green skirt. Of course, the temperature is still too angry with skirts for me to wear them. I guess we'll have to do Trendy Tuesday tomorrow at work because we're off again today. Either way, I still posted what I plan to wear!

  2. Let me know if you find the perfect gingham button up because I have been searching for one too. The one blue and white one I do have is a thrifted Old Navy one but it's a little big and boxy so it only works when layered.

    This outfit came out great! I really like the green skirt and gray together. I also like that you added the pearls!

  3. Great look! I love the green skirt. And now you've got me really wanting that gingham Target shirt! I just checked and it says it's available in my size in my local store. Guess where I'm going after work...

  4. so in love with the color of your skirt!
    very nice blog by the way :)

    kisses from Russia,

  5. I'm telling you, I love my j.crew one, hopefully it'll go on sale soon :) I really like your skirt today too!

  6. I love this color combo! Your skirt is such a pretty shade of green! I am in search of a blue or black gingham, too. I have a light blue 3/4 sleeve and it just isn't working for layering that I want to do with it. If you find a good one, let us know! :)

  7. I've seen and considered all of these gingham options, but the JCF is my favorite out of all the ones I've found so far. (But also not going to spend $50 on it.) I really like the grey and green together, and think the pearls were such a lovely touch :)

  8. hopefully you find one soon. in the meantime, i love this one under your sweater!

  9. love love love!! you look amazing! thanks for linking up with the style swap
