Gingham Goes to the Zoo

Inspired by Angie's post I put on a yellow/ white gingham shirt with white cropped, high cuff jeans for a trip to the zoo today and managed to blend in with the daffodils. Comments and suggestions welcomed. Because of cooler morning temperatures, I started out with the shirt buttoned up, but it got too warm and became a jacket.

    Sarah, I love wearing yellow in the spring.
    Thank you, Jenni. I think these white jeans will be work horses for warm weather.
    Thank you, JAileen.

    This is another super look, Joy (and you cracked me up with your daffodils comment ;-)
    Love the gold bag and loafers with the white and soft yellow. Polished and fun!

    Hope you had a lovely day at the zoo.

    This is a great outfit, and yes you would certainly coordinate well with daffodils! Yellow is such a happy color :-) I think I need to get some into my wardrobe. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Thank you all for your comments and help. I enjoy wearing yellow but have very little of it. It has to be just the right shade.

    Adorable Spring Zoo outfit.

    I'm really warming to the gingham trend!  This is lovely, Joy - fresh and spring- like.

    Love it with the gold accents!

  • Sara L. replied 2 years ago

    Nice!  This is a great look on you.  I like the gold shoes and purse.

    Thank you!
    Angie and Summer, I felt very spring-like.
    Summer, try some gingham. There is some for everyone. A small scale check looks false/plain from a distance. The big bold ones look modern. Gingham is easily retro. It can go from very feminine to masculine, depending on the color and the style of the garment.
    Robin and Sara, the gold seemed right with the yellow check. This gold bag can carry so much, including a bottle of water.
