girls and their go to patterns

playing-with-patterns2.jpgHappiest of Mondays to you and it is a good one because I’m teaming up with three of my most favorite bloggers to bring you a little play on patterns. Kathleen, MeganMaureen, and myself each styled the one pattern that we love to go for in order to showcase a string of pretty prints.

For me, it is gingham, all day everyday. I remember being on the hunt years ago for just one great gingham shirt and felt like I was striking out left and right. Now I have a primary color collection of varying sizes, from tiny checks to oversized. I just find it to be the most classic and perfect little must have because it can stand alone or be paired with literally anything else – layered with a sweater or tee, tucked into a skirt or tied around the waist, or simply put with any kind of print, especially the ones the above are sporting! Gingham is just plain the best.
