Checkered Past: vintage gingham and hounds tooth gets paired together for a funky twist on the shirt and short combo.

I L-O-V-E gingham. So this shirt is coming with me well into the shady days of Fall, even though it is a summer red, tissue thin and very light weight. My gingham shirt is just so easy to wear. The shirt was last seen HERE. This time I dolled it up with a vintage acetate hounds tooth print scarf and trilby hat, just to give me some practice in layering. 
After all, Sacramento has a hot September, it's basically still summer weather, but I'm chomping at the bit to start dressing for one of my favorite seasons. What makes Fall so fun is that it is the season to layer, and I can't wait to pile up scarves, sweaters, jackets and shirt-on-shirt action.

 I usually associate gingham with summer, and other prints bring Autumn to mind, like paisley, but in this day and age, anything goes, right? So I'm going to treat my gingham as another form of plaid which is definitely a print I plan to mix this Fall. Plaid on plaid. Plaid with Florals. Plaid vs Polka. Plaid and Lace. Oh the possibilities are ENDLESS.
I've been seeing some wonderful combinations of this classic print. Two brilliant outfits were worn recently by two of my favorite +40 bloggers. Sacramento, of Mis Papelicos looked smart mixing an animal print with plaid in her recent post, Tartan Jungle.  And Desiree, my muse from Down Under, also rocks a plaid with a leopard print that looks absolutely amazing on her! You can gasp in awe by clicking HERE. And just so you don't think I have to go abroad for plaid/animal print inspiration, I'll share with you a post from Street Style SACRAMENTO that captured a local artist rocking the same sweet and sassy combo. You can check out her outfit HERE. 
I also dig dudes who can rock the gingham, as in year 'round, rain or shine, any day of the week.  A gent who knows how to sport this delectable checked print is someone I'd be a fool NOT to fall for. Oh, I won't mention names. BUT YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
