Grown Up Gingham :: Gingham Ruffle Dress + Bucket Bag

Sunday, September 10, 2017 Simone - Your Style Architect 4 Comments

Hi everyone. A quick outfit post today as I sit nervously by the TV watching the updates on Hurricane Irma pounding Florida.

As some of you know, our home is in Sarasota, Florida and my in-laws in their late 80s and early 90s are there on their own braving the storm and being so old, they have decided to weather it through and pray for the best seeing they are in Evacuation Zone C. We are certainly hoping they will be well and have been in non-stop contact with them.

Having also hurt my ankle badly this last week, it was tough hobbling around and therefore this was a quick outfit shot and as you can see, my bandaged ankle present in all it's glory in this post. Have been wearing ONLY flats for the last 2 weeks and it's not fun. I believe I had torn a ligament and the swelling is indeed taking awhile to subside.

Back to the outfit, gingham is definitely a trending hit in summer and from the recent Fashion Week highlights, we can see this trend continuing for 2018. I love this cool, lightweight summer gingham dress with its statement ruffles. Cute in a way, girly and so feminine. Looking to style it with a skirt or perhaps even pants for a different look.

Thanks for reading and sorry this was a quick post. Our thoughts and prayers are certainly for all who are affected by this massive Hurricane, not only in Florida but also in Cuba and the islands.
