Gingham Maxi Dress & Summer Scarf

How perfect would this gingham maxi dress be for a picnic? I totally would have worn this dress for a picnic shoot if it wasn’t for the fact that I just did a picnic post recently, which you can see here. But this outfit would work for any weekend activity, whether it’s brunch, shopping, or afternoon tea. I am loving how billowy this Chicwish dress is when I walk, and the bowtie shoulder straps add just the right touch of femininity. I wore it all day last Saturday from a blog meeting to drinks to dinner, and it was so comfortable and easy. I could basically live in this dress all Summer long!

Since the dress is black and white, of course I had to dress it up with some colorful accessories. Let’s talk about this gorgeous summer scarf from CJW. It is made from the softest lightweight wool and the print on it is all different kinds of ice cream. Needless to say, this scarf had my name on it. I also went with an eclectic looking floral purse from ModCloth in a pretty deep green color that’s perfect for transitioning into Fall. I love the wooden handle and matching twistlock, it gives the bag a quaint vintage feel. Unfortunately the bag is currently sold out, but may come back in stock. To add height to my frame and play off of the bag, I completed the look with my wooden platform sandals.
