Gingham Ruffle

Ruffles and gingham all in one? I think my wildest dreams have come true. These pants are stretchy and comfortable, plus have the pretties ruffle at the waist and at the ankles. The cuteness is verging on overload.

I love going a bit simple and wearing a black off the shoulder on top. You can also pair the gingham with chambray and wear a button down (tucked in or knotted), a sleeveless white button down, or just a tank top for a dressed down look. If you want to add some color, I would wear some pink or baby blue shoes. Again, my simple side went with some cute black sandals with a bow detail in the back.

THE EARRINGS. I found this statement pair at Charming Charlie. They are under $15 and perfect when the rest of an outfit is simple, or if you’ve gone the casual route and want to add a little fun to your look. I’ve linked several pairs below, from beaded to tassel – and I love how something small (and budget friendly) can really elevate your outfit.

As we go into fall, I will be wearing this gingham print with a pretty sweater (think pink, white or black) and some flats. All outfit details are below!

They pair easily with cozy sweaters and make you feel warm and fuzzy without all the heavy layers…because let’s all nod in agreement that winter can wait. If I am able to get out of the house with a knit and scarf, I’m a happy girl. I don’t need to cover myself up with my puffer just yet – but when I do, I can still pop on my blanket scarf. And to make you feel even more warm and fuzzy, use code “kari20” to get 20% off your purchase at ilymix.com (which brings this scarf to less than $20 + free worldwide shipping)!Read More

This beautiful light purple sweater is so cute with high waist jeans and simple sneakers, but looks equally cute with this tunic underneath and skinny jeans + booties…lots of options!Read More
