Gingham top: vintage, thrifted;
Skirt: Kasper, thrifted;
Belt: BR, from Marilou.
Gingham is one of my favorite patterns, and it's no surprise that whenever I find it in a vintage or thrift store, it's a piece that usually comes home with me. I've had some trouble figuring out how to style it, and so I included this top in the 30 for 30 Remix Challenge. For Day 9 of the Challenge, I decided to try it with this mint green skirt. The skirt is a little brighter in real life, and so to make it seem less Christmas-y, I added some brown elements to ground it. I like the top belted -- for some reason it just looks more professional to me.
Some of you might wonder why I've gone back to the beach spot so many times recently in my outfit posts. Whenever I scroll through my blog and see this particular landscape, I'm often reminded of that phrase about insanity being defined as expecting different outcomes from a repeated experience. But to me, this is a rather exciting time to take photos outdoors. It is a different experience every time because all the changing elements make it so, and I love documenting it everyday. Besides, every day I'm afraid that the next week will be the week all the leaves will be gone, and I'll regret not going to the same spot to capture what it is now.
What are some unexpected color combinations you've tried recently?
