Gingham Party

You know how every fashion blogger has an “I’m having so much fun and someone just said something hilarious” face? We all do. Mine always has a wide open mouth, as if the laughter in the moment is just soooo unavoidable even though there happens to be a camera there, because just a straight ear-to-ear smile looks kind of lame on me. But in the laughing shot a few photos down the page, I’m actually really cracking up because two guys drove by Heather and I while we were shooting and in oddly quiet voices out their window said, “Right there. Don’t move.” Normally I’m not the first to want to enable a blogger heckler, but in that moment it was the most hilarious thing I’d ever heard. They were totally making fun of me, but maybe I just felt confident in this dress so I was ready for anything a passer by might throw at me. I mean, it hides any problem areas, but shows enough shoulder and leg to not feel like I’m in a frumpy mumu. I love the black and white gingham for transitioning into fall – a little more moody than the typical navy or red but still light and summery enough for the inevitable 90 degree type days we’ll experience for another month or two. The swingy shape  of the dress and flouncy ruffle say “Hi, I’m here to enjoy myself.” Basically, in this outfit I felt like I had nothing to be embarrassed about so heckle away!
