I’ve had a big crush on gingham for a long time now but no way (read: piece of clothing) to express my feelings for it. Though the pattern is most well known in its black and white form, gingham and summer go hand-in-hand for me. Yet it’s still versatile enough that it can transition into fall and winter with the addition of colored tights! Knowing this, you can imagine my happiness when I received an email from Loft that they were debuting a line of gingham pieces.
I’m not even joking when I say that I checked for my size at the local Loft and went right out to try and (hopefully) buy it that day.
It had already sold out of most sizes online by the time I got there so I was terrified that it wouldn’t fit. I got to the store right before rush hour. Found my size (after panicking that I couldn’t find the dress anywhere). Went to the dressing room. And ha.lle.lu.jah.
