Summer is for gingham & crochet

I am slowly making my way into mixing prints, and I think this yellow gingham top and crochet lace shorts make a subtle transition into the tough trend. I went on the hunt for the perfect pair of crochet lace shorts about a month ago, and when I found these I was in love, they are everything I hoped for in a pair of white crochet lace shorts.  I have so many outfit ideas for these shorts! 

These photos were taken on my favorite trail that leads to a very special park. Right across the street is a small ice cream shop perfect for hot summer days or summer nights.

 Summer is in full swing and I couldn't be happier about it. I have been spending my days riding bikes, at the pool, relaxing in my hammock and working on new projects at my sister's very special craft table her husband made her. 

I love Thursdays, and I know today is going to be a great one!

  1. Awww, indeed they're gorgeous shorts! It's a great idea to pair it with a gingham shirt, as gingham is a perennial print which I love, by the way. Especially in yellow! By the way, I’ve just discovered your blog and I really like it. Would you like to follow each other via GFC? Please, let me know!
