SAHMonday: Gingham Shorts – Take Two

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday. If you’re new here, SAHMonday is my weekly outfit series for stay at home and work from home moms (like me) who may not be heading out the house on Monday morning BUT still want to look cute and put together. I started it as a way of getting myself out of the “yoga pants mom rut” and inspiring you to do the same. You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

In last week’s SAHMonday outfit, I shared take one of my gingham shorts and professed my love of/obsession with gingham as one of summer 2018’s hottest trends. I got these scalloped gingham shorts recently and have had a blast pairing them up with everything from brights to black and white tops with a pop of color in my shoes and accessories. Although I highly recommend my pair, here are some other options.

Today I’m pairing up my gingham shorts with this black tie sleeved tee and colorful slide sandals, which is another outfit in the Style Challenges® Summer 2018 Capsule Wardrobe (btw, it’s now open and if you sign up by midnight tonight you’ll be automatically entered to win a $150 giveaway from Alison + Aubrey!) We’re styling summer’s hottest trends like gingham, scalloped shorts, tropical prints, kimonos, tie sleeve tops, ruffles and more in this summer’s capsule wardrobe! If you’ve ever wanted someone to tell you what to buy and how to pair it up, I’m your girl! Get your shopping list and first week of outfit ideas immediately HERE.

Tie Sleeve Tee + Gingham Shorts + Colorful Earrings + Bright Sandals

This black and white palette calls for a pop of fun color. I got these bright bow slide sandals a few weeks ago and have already worn them in many more ways that I expected to.

This tie sleeve tee is so cute, lightweight and versatile, I can’t recommend it highly enough! You’re going to want it in more than one color. For sizing reference, I’m wearing an XS.
