Gingham Buttondown + Belted Trench Dress

I know most of the blogger world is posting red, white, and blue looks this week in honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday...but I am deviating from the norm and showing you a summer outfit with pinks, gingham, and florals.  I previously styled this trench dress as a vest with stripes and denim here, but today I layered it over a Mindy Mae's Market pink gingham shirt for a dressier office look.  I added rose gold pumps, a statement necklace, and this floral Neverfull tote for additional print and texture.  This gingham shirt is very lightweight, so even though it has long sleeves it is still very comfortable to wear during the summer.  Gingham has such a summery feel, evoking thoughts of afternoon picnics or Dorothy's iconic blue and white dress, and I am loving the plentiful gingham options available this summer.

I also recently listed this Louis Vuitton Neverfull Roses bag for sale in my Poshmark closet.  There is no question that it is a gorgeous bag, but I have my eye on a Sac du Jour.  Please feel free to drop me a note if you are interested and want to see more photos.
