The Traveling Gingham Frock


Gingham, always in style and a favourite of mine because it brings back the happy memories of my childhood, living in a house with a pink gingham kitchen. I decorated the kitchen of our first home with red gingham; it looked like a cozy little Italian café.

This little black and white gingham frock made it’s debut on the beach of Lake Huron. It’s perfect for traveling during summer and I wore it on our holiday to Niagara-on-the-Lake (Lake Ontario) and Crystal Beach (Lake Erie). It’s part of a collection of pretty black and white gingham lingerie and loungewear that I bought at La Vie en Rose. Chic enough to wear in public on hot summer days when you don’t feel like wearing anything–so cool and comfortable!

Gingham–as timeless as a white picket fence.

LA VIE EN ROSE had a BOG3 sale (buy one get three) so I got the matching gingham capris and a T-shirt with a little gingham pocket.

I like it when I can wear something pretty and comfortable to lounge at home and be ready to go to town at the drop of a hat, or in this case, throw on a hat and some red sandals (Romika vegan) I’m ready for the classic car show in uptown Kincardine.

  3. You are so right Carmen, gingham is always in style , I am sure your kitchen growing up and in your first house looked fabulous ! The gingham frock goes so well with white capris , so very stylish on you ! It sure can be worn just on its own. I love the t shirt with the gingham pocket and the the capris to match the pocket, you are indeed ready for the car show ! The hat is so classy also ! That is a nice photo of you walking past the flowers down the sidewalk . Thanks for sharing, Terri xo.

      Oh indeed, I’m soaking up the summer to the last drop! The weather has been wonderful. It’s a blessing to live here by the sea but I do miss my friends in the city! I’ll be visiting Maggie and my friends tomorrow, and teaching dance.
