Preppy Gingham for Spring!

Happy spring, y'all! We couldn't be happier to see the seasons change after a long, harsh winter in the city. Even though spring apparently means it still snows...at least in Chicago. With the official arrival of spring comes many things: bright manicures, iced coffee, white jeans, and fun patterns for spring. We recently discussed our (and our customers) love of florals this time of year, but we also can't get enough of gingham! This classically preppy pattern pairs well with just about every color and other pattern under the sun. It's always one of our favorite patterns to use when designing (and getting dressed), but especially with the arrival of spring. Check out the different ways we've been using this preppy pattern.
Custom Charleston Pocket Square
 Y'all know we specialize in custom bachelorette parties, but bachelors like party swag too. T.J. and his friends recently headed down to Charleston to celebrate his upcoming wedding, so we created some swag (heavy on the gingham) to welcome his guests! T.J.'s bride-to-be even had custom pocket squares created out of his bachelor party monogram to match the rest of his bachelor swag. Talk about some Southern charm!!
Charleston Bachelor Party
 In bachelorette hangover kits, we include makeup wipes, along with Advil, saltines, and gum. But we didn't think these Southern gents would get much use out of the makeup wipes, so we switched them out for some EmergenC. Which ended up matching perfectly with the blue and orange swag!
 We love gingham for little girls' parties!! It's the perfect pattern to pair with both stripes and bows, and looks great in pink!
Southern Birth Announcement
 Gingham is also the perfect preppy accent for baby boy birth announcements.
Crown Monogram
Now onto the gingham items we're currently coveting for spring!
We LOVE this gingham midi dress for spring! Meghan on our team has been wanting this dress since last summer, and now that it's on sale ($37, originally $92) she thinks its a must purchase! Find at ASOS.
This hot pink little number by Oscar de la Renta has a spot in our dream closets. Combining two of our favorite patterns (gingham and ikat) and in one of our favorite colors...this is one fabulous dress.
This J.Crew bikini combines two of our favorites: gingham and seersucker. And in coral, how can we resist?
The only thing better than gingham is large gingham...in hot pink! This Vineyard Vine shirt would be perfect layered with a sweater and paired with colored jeans for the perfect spring outfit!
And one for the guys....yes this is a Vineyard Vines gingham bowtie. And yes, the gingham pattern is made out of horses!! Perfect for the Derby!
Last but certainly not least, we love this little wallet by Tory Burch. Big enough to fit your phone and the essentials, while still giving your outfit a fun pop of navy and white gingham.

Happy (official) first week of spring!!
