// Spring Picnic

This dress just screams "Picnic!" I mean, how could it not? I'm 110% obsessed with red and white gingham. If I could make my wardrobe dreams come true, I'd totally have a little ant purse to go along with this. Totally hokey, I know. But c'mon, awesome right? Actually when I first put this outfit on, I walked out into the living room to ask Mike if I looked like a watermelon. He said "Well, watermelons aren't gingham, so no" ha. Well, thanks, I think? This dress is from Dolly & Dotty (a UK brand) and I've had it for a couple of months now. Since I took a little blogging break it's taken me this long to share it, but I've been wearing it in regular rotation since the day I received it in the mail. It's such a surprisingly heavy dress - It has a full lining and everything. It also comes with a fabric and grommet belt, though mine usually bunches up so I only wear it on occasion. I paired it with a kelly green cardigan because for some reason kelly green screams summer to me (I know, it's literally only the beginning of Spring, but I'm just saying haha) And of course my lovely Steve Madden sandals I told y'all about in yesterday's giveaway post. I can't get enough of these shoes, y'all! Swing by the Dolly and Dotty site and take a peek at how many amazing dresses they have (and how affordable they are!) I can't even handle how massive my wishlist is from there haha

In other news, Mike and I bought a new car this week! We brought home a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder! Car shopping has been stressing us out for a couple of months now. It has been especially exhausting ever since we got really serious about buying a car a few weeks ago. Trying to meet all of our needs and keep everyone happy is a bit of a tall order. Overall I couldn't be happier with our purchase. My Xterra has treated us so well for the past 5 years. I was happy to add another Nissan to our fleet. And it has 3 rows... so you know... babies! (HA! Mike would kill me if he saw that right now :P)

  1. Love it! I have a gingham dress from lindy bop that I just screwed up the zipper on- gotta get on mending that ha.

    1. Oh man! I hope you can fix it! I have heart eyes for the black and white gingham dress from Lindy bop (!!!) but I can't ever find it in a large! It's so perfect!

  2. I love Dolly and Dotty! They are very affordable and have so much I want to buy <3

    1. Yes! I totally thought of you when I first saw their site last year, too! How crazy!

  3. OMG Look how cute you are. I love this dress.

  4. You look beautiful! I am a total sucker for gingham- I think it stems from loving my summer dress at Primary School!
