For all intents and purposes, I have been living in this J. Crew Factory Gingham Shirt.
Gingham, like ’90s lips, is having a moment right now (I’ve been seeing it all over the place), but even though I think this shirt seems pretty trendy and “now”, I also think it might last me a few seasons (I hope). Because print-wise, gingham’s also a classic.
But the print isn’t the only thing I love about this shirt. It also breathes, because it’s 100% cotton and feels very comfy. I brought it with me to NOLA last week, and no matter what I was doing or where I happened to be, whether on a frigid air-conditioned plane or slogging along a humid French Quarter street, it felt good and stayed pretty wrinkle-free throughout the day, which is a huge, huge plus.
Wrinkly clothes are the bane of my existence, I swear…
It’s available in a range of sizes, both petite and regular, and different prints, too.
Today I’m wearing it with a pair of coral LOFT Riviera Sailor Shorts I picked up a while back.
DUUUUUUUDE, I love these shorts. The color feels so summery, and I love the button detailing on the front.
FYI: the front doesn’t have pockets. Those buttons are just there for display, which is kind of annoying (because I’m all about pockets, because where else am I gonna keep the cat treats?!), but at least there are a couple of real-deal functional pockets in the back.
The shorts are available in coral, black and a gingham print, and they’re currently 40% off right now online.
I’m just sayin’…
