Gingham and Mr. Lizard

This week has been super busy for me. But better late than never for a post which topic is gingham prints. With such a classic color and print, pairing is as easy as pie for me today.
The different ways that the gingham print was used on this top is what truly draws my attention. To add contrast to the manly style and a boxy silhoutte, I added some playful and girly touches to the overall look. This fluted skirt is one of my favorites and I think the color and it's shape highlights my gingham top more. And as you might have notice in my previous post, I like pairing cobalt blue with black/white. I think that these colors are just lovely when paired together.

On another note, notice all the greenery in my background? My son found a small lizard and put it an empty cup and brought it inside the car without me knowing. And if you are a parent of a little boy, you know how they like to play with those creatures, right? They also don't listen and will do the exact opposite when you tell them not to take em' out ! He was holding it but managed to escape and so quickly crawled under the passengers side. Can you imagine me now in a super panicked mode ! We have a lizard in the car..... I got out of the car quickly as I can and told my son that he better caught that lizard or we are not going  anywhere. I know that I am acting like a big baby, lol but I just don't anything crawling on me while I am driving and will jolt me from my focus. Even though it was the first time that we have lizard on loose in our vehicle, it was not the first time I travelled with bugs, frogs and lizard. I really don't mind. I just do not want them loose around. 
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
xoxo

  21. Nope no lizards, bugs or snakes were ever in my car. I had two daughters. Yay! But I had these mean boy cousins that would show up to the Family Reunion and within 5 minutes they would have a snake {mind you this is in the campgrounds in Utah in the mountains}. I wanted to stay really close to an adult (Mom Dad, Aunt Uncle) when those 'scary boys' arrived! LOL

    I love the necklace with the large checks=genius! Thanks for you cheers and well wishes. It is infused and I feel great today. I am going to shoot for as many good days as I can get out of this cycle. Just you wait!!! ♥
