There are things that always come to mind when you think of summer. For a city gal like myself, it's icee's, playing in the hydrant/sprinklers, and fairs. Summer was in full swing when the county fairs came to town. No matter what type of fair I went to, one thing was constant- gingham. Now some fifteen years later, gingham is all over the runways. That is the cool thing about fashion, something simple like gingham can be re-interpreted in different ways to what I like to call "Country Gal meets City Chic". 

The gingham print on this Eloquii midi immediately made me think of my summers going to the county fair. It's definitely an item that is versatile. It can be dressed up for work with some cute heels, and a button up, dress down with some white sneakers, like my Stan Smith's, or with a tee and sandals to brunch. I like to switch things up, so for today's post I wanted to wear my sneakers but with this flirty crop top. Wearing ruffles when you are busty can be tricky, but this top fits well, and does not add on extra bulk. 


I love wearing sneakers with my midi skirts. It's a fun may to mix feminine with masculine. Bonus, sneakers are COMFORTABLE!! Do you wear sneakers with your skirts or dresses? Sound off in the comments.
