A Gingham Dress to Wear from Beach to Brunch

June 15, 2017


pink on pink is my new favorite - M Loves M @marmar

Who else is loving all the gingham prints this season? While blue gingham is such a classic, especially during the summertime, I couldn’t resist this pink gingham dress as soon as I saw it. You know I love the color pink! The light hue is so pretty and soft, and the ties at the sleeves add a sweet little detail. Plus, let’s talk about the versatility! This is definitely a gingham dress to wear from beach to brunch. The soft and comfortable material make it work for either!
