The Gingham Gang

{Shop: Gingham Shirt, Jeans, Heels}

A few days ago Liz on twitter suggested that we should all wear our gingham shirts today, but style them differently. I love a good group project so I was in. And since no one styles a gingham shirt quite like J.Crew I called up my old high school pal, Jenna Lyons, and I asked her what she would do. She never returned my calls but I figured sequins would be in that answer somewhere. Just like Shakespeare said: "All that glitters is not gold." It's sequins, of course. 

 I suggested The Gingham Gang for the name of this one-day group project, simply because it sounds tough. Who wants to mess with the Gingham Gang? I bet they carry tissues in their purses, cry at most movies, and have internet connectivity on their phones at all times. Don't hang out in the sale section of a J.Crew, you don't want to mess with the Gingham Gang. They will tear you up. 

Then I got to thinking, how many times have I remixed this beloved shirt? Let me count the ways. 


And now 8. And to think, I have yet to wash it. 


  1. Did you defy the odds and magically get smaller over the holidays? You look extra teeny tiny today. Truth or just photography? Never tell.

  2. i love the casual but chic style here.. the gingham shirt is perfect with that jeans color. This is chic american style, love it, and this inspires me too :)


  3. I love this look, especially those shoes!
