Fashion Friday : Check Up! + One Year Anniversary!

Happy Fashion Friday! Today's post is extra special because it was one year ago today that I wrote my very first blog post. I had no idea what I was getting in to, if I would stick with it or more importantly if anyone would read it (except for my sweet Mama and The Husband, who are both obligated to read!). One year later, I've met friends I never would have met, I'm constantly inspired, I've tried things I never thought I would try and for all these things, I am grateful. I started this blog as an outlet for creativity and for sharing my thoughts, ideas, etc. with anyone kind enough to read. I want to thank each of you for following along with me. If I could hug each one of you, I would and I'd also give you a cupcake and a glass of champagne, because that's how we do things here in the south! Thank you for all of your sweet comments and emails. I look forward to them everyday. I'm certainly not a guru at anything...except for being me. As I said in my very first post, opinions here are my own. Take them for what they are worth. Thank you again for reading this little 'ole blog of mine. It truly means the world to me! Cheers! :)

Now for what you really came for...
Today's Fashion Friday theme is all about gingham. Yes, we know gingham is timeless. However, one must be very careful when selecting this print. We certainly don't want to be walking around looking like a tablecloth! With that in mind, I try to stick to a smaller gingham print. What about you? Here's an outfit I put together with gingham as the centerpiece (pun not intended!).

I just couldn't resist this shirt! It's flirty and feminine. To keep the shirt as the "wow" piece, I paired it with white jeans, nude espadrilles and a cork cross body bag. I would accessorize with simple earrings and a bracelet. 
So what do you think? Would you wear this outfit?

Cheers to the weekend, ladies! I hope you all do something that makes you smile! 

I'm linking up with Blonde Episodes and Long Distance Loving for Fashion Friday.
