It’s still pretty warm here so I’m trying to wear shorts as often as I can. If you’ve followed along for awhile now, you know I love mixing prints! I picked up these shorts at Francesca’s Collection at the beginning of summer and thought they would look cute with a gingham top. Gingham is easy to pair with so many other prints and patterns.The rules to follow are to tie the print to the gingham color and then keep one print more understated than the other. My navy gingham top is the dominant print of this look while the shorts are more muted and accent the gingham. A long sleeve shirt and shorts is an easy fall transition look!
