Here’s my casual take on the gingham trend.  This Loft purple gingham shirt is a favorite of mine. You might recognize it from my blog banner. (Who says bloggers never wear the same thing twice?)  And I wanted to add this colorful vintage scarf that was my mom’s into the mix.  I love the way it looks tied to my Lilly tote.
