But what is a gingham dress?

Back from a lovely week in the UK! Back on Wifi! Haha.

Yes, I can picture a Brigitte Bardot-like dress in black and white like here, although most of them are actually in red/white! But where does gingham come from, why is it called gingham? Of course everything we want to know can be found on Wikipedia. So now we know!

I really wanted a gingham print dress in black and white for years, but because these are often off shoulder, and I don’t think that looks good on me, I have never bought one. Until I wanted to try some dresses from overseas companies. And this one has straps on the shoulders, so I do not feel so naked in it. I’m glad I tried some overseas sites. It was worth it. I now have different dresses that I am very pleased with and they fit surprisingly good.

Styling my gingham dress with green

You almost never see me with a bag, a nice trendy one that is. I always have to carry the bag for my oxygen concentrator when I go out. If I ever, ever get a transplant and don’t need the extra oxygen anymore, the first thing I will do is by myself a designer bag! Btw, I’ve almost finished the post about my disease. I think it will be ready in two weeks. Back to the bag, isn’t the color amazing? And I think that gingham matches with green perfectly. Of course black and white match with any color. So, I wear green slippers, green earrings and a green bead chain worn as a bracelet from????? Yes, Brighton! Just like these ones! It is only a pitty that there are no loops for the belt on the dress. Now I have to check all the time if the strap is still in the right place, otherwise you see the elastic above it. Perfection is a thing….

    I love my gingham dress too.

    Wat staat het jurkje je schattig. Gecombineerd met groen is leuk. Daar zou roze of rood ook super bij staan!

    • June 20, 2017 / 8:17 am

      Inderdaad! Volgende keer ga ik t met roze dragen!

    That dress looķs so cute on you! I really like the gingham print on others, it’s not something I have in my closet though. I’m more a stripes and polkadots kinda gal;)

    • June 20, 2017 / 8:18 am

      Polka Dots are great too!

    Wonderful dress! The stamping of black and white squares is precious, delicate and very romantic, so is the beautiful design. Matching outfit with sandals green and the bag is perfect. A beautiful summer look. I love her hairstyle.

      Thank you Josep! And the green earrings!

      Yes you should!

    This dress is so cute! I just love gingham. The bits of green stand out so nicely against the black and white checks.

    • June 20, 2017 / 9:56 pm

      Thank you, I thought so too, but any colour would look good!

    Nancy, you look so pretty! This is my favorite dress on you so far. I absolutely love the gingham, the ruffle, and the cutouts at the shoulders. So beautifully summery!

    I have been wanting to add more gingham to my closet. I used to think it was more for winter, but I love how it is so popular this summer. I just added a gingham shirt to my closet, now I need to find a dress. Love yours!


    • June 22, 2017 / 6:54 pm

      Thank you Carrie. That is funny that you think its more for winter. I think French Rivièra!

    You look adorable in this gingham dress. I see gingham everywhere but it’s so fun to see the different ways people style it. The green is fabulous! Thank you for linking up with the Thursday Moda.
