Marissa Webb Dress // Rebecca Minkoff Purse // Bracelet (c/o Rocksbox) // Nine West Earrings (c/o Le Tote) // Splendid Sandals (c/o Zappos) // Elizabeth and James Sunglasses
This weekend we went home to El Dorado Hills for Omied's high school reunion. It was nice to see some old friends (and some friends who we see all the time in San Francisco), and it was a casual, outdoor BBQ situation so it gave me an excuse to wear this summery gingham dress. What's the difference between plaid, gingham and checkered? So glad you asked, because I finally did some intense research (I Googled it), to get to the bottom of this question that I've been asking myself for a good while now. A plaid print has both horizontal and vertical lines that can be any combination of colors and widths. A gingham print always has white in it, and the lines are the same width. And checkered is a pattern with two different colors in alternating squares. There, now don't you feel much more informed to make fashion decisions and purchases? :) This Marissa Webb dress was a perfect, light-weight material for a warm day. It's probably (definitely) meant to be tied in the back, but I liked how it looked and felt like it was more flattering on me tied in the front, giving it a sort of butterfly hem in the front rather than the back.
