the gingham struggle

When I got dressed on this particular morning, I wanted to combine my black gingham dress and olive green. But I just couldn’t make it work, for whatever reason. The contrast of the feminine cut of the dress and a utility jacket/vest just seemed a little weird to me. Better luck in the fall with my black gingham button up, perhaps.

Instead, I went for my other favorite neutrals: tan and denim. I wore this for my dad’s birthday celebration. With all these grandkids around (6 in total between my sisters and me), it was a pretty crazy night that involved a bathroom being flooded and crying over coconut cake. Oof.
