Styling Plaid (or in my case, gingham) {Style Perspectives}

Welcome back to another week of styling prompts with the Blended Blog. Before we get to this week’s prompt, here’s a recap of last week. So many fabulous people! haha!

graphic tee outfit style perspectives blended blogThis week Alison from Puppies and Pretties (whom I met in real life!) is styling  plaid on the Blended Blog, but alas! All my plaid is winter plaid. I have NOTHING that is springy and plaid. However, checks make a good substitute and I have plenty of that! When I was in Las Vegas last week I wore this aqua checked shirt and white pants. It’s a very lightweight long-sleeved top so it’s perfect for spring.

But when the weather gets even warmer, I prefer to stick to short sleeves if I have a day of errands and I know I will be in and out of the air conditioning.

I have had this navy top for many years. It is a classic top that goes with many bottoms. I’ve worn it with white pants (like I am in this picture), jeans, a denim skirt, and several different shorts. I can wear this with sandals or tennies for running around. I liked this top so much that I also have it in red. The red one also looks good with white pants but I really like it with dark wash skinny jeans. For a little added fun, I’m wearing striped blue espadrille sandals for a subtle pattern mix. 

I just got my all my sandals out this week and I was so happy to see these again! They were new last year and I had forgotten all about them!

Do you have any spring-colored plaid? I can’t wait to see what the other Blended Bloggers have that fits this prompt! I don’t know why but plaid feels wintery to me. Maybe be cause of plaid flannels? Below are the links to the others. And a reminder that

  1. I was thinking about subbing gingham as well. I really like little cute short sleeved blouses like these. Good picks, Sheila!

  2. I just don’t think well out of the box – or in this case, plaid. I love that you interpreted the prompt with checks and some of the gals wore gingham. Genius. Love the striped shoes and the tennies. So glad to be a part of this great group of gals.

  3. I’m really loving all the gingham!! I really like your shoes in the last photo as well. I can’t wait till it’s warm enough here to wear that kind of thing 🙂

  4. I think my gingham shirt from today is very similar to the one you wore in Vegas. Love the navy top with white pants – so pretty!

  5. I am with you on spring plaid – mine is fall/winter. I like all three looks – but the red is probably my favorite look. I love your blue sneakers and those espadrille sandals.

  6. Yay for getting all of your summers shoes out! I have all of my shoes out all of the time, hehe. Although I should go through it and get rid of the ones I really don’t wear any more to make room for more shoes! 🙂 Love those tops you picked. Super cute and anything with white pants in a thumbs up in my book!

  7. This shirt is such a cute classic piece and I can see why you have it in more than one color! Great styling for both looks and those striped espadrilles are so perfect for spring and summer.
