Today I feature a gingham tie front dress in black and white . Mother Nature helped me greatly with this post by adding sunshine and natural light! Tropical prints always look well with gingham checked dresses, as do florals. Therefore, I added my bag from Celine, seen last here. Pattern Mixing is essential with gingham.
My Gingham Tie front Dress :
Chanel earrings and handmade sunnies by Krewe added some nice finishing details. My lovely Celine bag was a gift from a dear friend! The stacked rings are from various wedding anniversaries. So much sentiment in this outfit; on this day as I think of my mom, my friend, and my husband.
The bow tie detail is a flattering style. It suits my hourglass frame. Black and white are time-honored , and I think this tie front gingham check dress will be both a new favorite and a classic , as time goes on. I love the button up style and the length that grazes the knee.
Ferragamo bow sling-backs were a natural add-on and were comfortable on my rooftop deck. This feminine detail is consistent with this ladylike look. See them below with a single flower in the flower box. All we need is one! A perfect match to my bag! Happy coincidence!
Sunshine galore and natural light leaks!
My late mother taught me how to sit like a lady. How I miss her, and yet, I think she is somewhere smiling down at me for remembering her, and her valuable lessons, which go well beyond style.
Do You recognize these shoes? I have had them for 6 years and they remain a favorite of mine. Purchased on Ebay years ago, I was thrilled that they fit so well! Too much sun throws shadows on my face below, and washes out the shot a bit, but this photo shows the whole outfit!
Such a different vibe with just one accessory change. Determined not to take myself so seriously, I also had some snaps taken with these fun glasses! I will always be a bit playful and a positive spirit, very much as my mom was!
Now that should leave you in a good mood!
