Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Gingham Maxi

Gingham Maxi

4:00 AM

Skirt:  Ralph Lauren // Hat:  Ralph Lauren (old) // Shoes:  Vince Camuto (old) // Sunnies:  Gucci // Top:  Lord & Taylor (old) // Bangles:  Lilly In Pink

Warmer weather is on the horizon folks!  I love love love this skirt and will most likely be wearing it a lot this season.  I love gingham print (I mean I’m obsessed with The Wizard of Oz so gingham kind of goes with that!) especially when you start mixing different colors with it.  This skirt is a maxi so it fits right in with this trend of maxi EVERYTHING.  Since the warmer months are coming I paired this with a fedora (the typical beach hat in my opinion) and one of my favorite pairs of sandals.  This skirt is a great transition piece from the different seasons if you look back on the two winter looks here and here

This top was actually also worn on the blog previously a lonnnnng time ago here.  Crazy how my look has changed since then right?  Sometimes I look back on old blog posts and either think what in the world was I thinking with that outfit or it’s pretty similar to what I’m wearing nowadays.  Also, the quality of my pictures except a select few posts from back in the day were not the greatest either.  You learn from your mistakes though. 

Enjoy the warm weather and please keep your fingers crossed that it won’t rain this weekend in Boston.  Baby brother is graduating and I would really like for the family to enjoy themselves and for me to be able to get some good pictures, especially of Boston because for those of you who haven’t been it really is a beautiful city.  It’s not somewhere I would want to live (it’s just not my style) but it’s definitely a pleasant place to visit.  Unfortunately I’m more of a southern loving girl.  I love the south and everything about it.  The lifestyle, the weather, the fashion, I feel like I truly was born and grew up in the wrong state sometimes, but I do have Jersey girl tendencies sometimes, I mean I’m confident and straight forward at times, I love going “down the shore” and I really love animal prints.  I've never flipped a table though like Teresa from Jersey Housewives.  That was pretty intense!  Oh and since the area that I live in is predominantly Italian I LOVVVVE Italian food, thankfully boyfriend’s family is Italian hehe.  Although it doesn’t help my diet having it once in a while is perfectly fine!
