I’m obsessed with gingham. I love shirts, dresses, skirts – all of it. If there’s a gingham pattern on something, I’ll think twice about getting it (the first time is the instant “OMG, I need this” moment and the second is the “I guess I have ten others like this” whine).
While I know I shouldn’t have a ton of gingham, I can’t help but love this classic pattern. It’s perfect for work or fun; and the plethora of items that come in this beautiful pattern is endless.
I’ve been able to find deconstructed shirts, classic button-downs, and both mini and midi skirts.
I love wearing a gingham button-down with white shorts in the spring, sporting a cute patterned dress with sandals in the summer, and I’m hoping to wear a deconstructed shirt with skinnies in the fall.
Since I’m obsessed with all things gingham, I took my midi skirt with me to Europe. I knew it would be perfect for lunch or even at an earlier dinner on board.
I ended up wearing the midi skirt while in Civitavecchia. We started out in Rome that morning and traveled to the port that afternoon to board the ship.
Adam and I hung out on our balcony, watching the boat leave the harbor, as we sipped on our welcome champagne. Afterwards, we went out, exploring the different decks of the ship.
Now, Adam and I took a Seabourn Cruise. Seabourn is a luxury cruiseline that I am in love with. The small ship meant that Adam and I had a very personal experience while on board. The staff recognized me and greeted me by name when I moved around the ship; it was nice because we got to know them too.
We also had our own “butler” who did so much to help us feel comfortable.
Overall, even the moments on board, were splendid. There wasn’t a moment that I felt dissatisfied. Seabourn outdid themselves and our honeymoon is one trip that I will never forget.
But, I can’t get ahead of myself – you’ve just learned about a few ports; I can’t spill everything!
That evening, after a delicious dinner, Adam and I curled up in bed, excited to travel to our first destination, Amalfi, which you can read all about here.
For those that love gingham, let me know what pieces you have (it might be something I need to add to my growing collection!). And for those that don’t, what patterns do you prefer?
