Last week Late Afternoon made a post called "A Case of the Reds" where she mixed and matched her red gingham print skirt and red stripped t-shirt. I never thought of pairing gingham with stripes since I always thought the two would clash, but after seeing the pairing it made me think twice. It also inspired me to take my own little twist on the look.



I felt the mix of prints but wasn't sure about all of it in the same color. I wanted to break up my look so I took my Forever21 gingham skirt and paired it with a black and white stripped shirt. Since this is a powerful look like Liz I kept my accessories neutrals to keep it from clashing with the overall outfit.

Shirt: H&M
Skirt: Forever21
Shoes: Target
Bag: c/o R&Em
Necklace: c/o Juicy Couture
Ring: Charlotte Russe
