Gingham Top with a Red Cardi

I am always drawn to the bold contrast of black and white with another vivid color.  So when I began to see gingham prints popping up all over this season, I got excited!

And, that’s what we are Mixing Up in this post.


Target’s Who What Wear line has become a reliable source of fun pieces for me. I like that they take something basic and add a little unexpected twist to it! This comfy and roomy gingham top sells for $22.99. I’m wearing a size XL.


My go to combo when putting together an outfit. Something basic with something different. That was the idea behind the distressed jeans. These Old Navy Rockstar jeans Rock! Super comfy and will take me through the seasons. Sells for $34.00 and I’m wearing a size 16.


Cardigans and blazers are my friends! I like the structure that they add to an outfit. Also they are a way to throw in some unexpected color. I’m wearing a JCrew cardigan that I bought a few years ago.


As I mentioned in other posts, I will invest a bit more money in durable staples like cardigans. What I look for is proper fit and vibrant color. My spots for cardigans in this style has been Ann Taylor and JCrew. Sometimes I find some at Target and TJ Maxx as well.

To blend in a mix of prints, I added my Target  Merona polka dot clutch. I like that this repeats the black and white but with a different pattern. This little goodie sells for $16.99. Adding a cute little clutch is an inexpensive way to add color or a print!
…Because getting dressed (and living life) should feel good!
