Check, please!

Hey boo boos,

Guess what!! Today’s post is my 100th one to hit the blog! That is truly so so wild to me. I have almost had the blog up and running for a year now too, which is even crazier if you ask me! I was thinking I was going to go big for my 100th post, but them realized that my 1 year post would be shortly behind it, so I figured that the November 7th post will be  a big ol celebration instead.. like with cake and balloons or something.. that you will have to buy for yourself and eat in the comfort of your own home. Sounds fun, right?

I kinda really wanted to do the thing you do in elementary school for your 100th day of school and dress up as 100 year-old geezers, but my nursing home outfit is in the wash.. So since today is like any other day, I have a fashion post right here for ya filled with a super cute trend this season. Drumroll please…. that trend is checkers, gingham, black and white boxes things. Whatever you wanna call it, I’ll roll with it.

Fall patterns are my favoriteeeee compared to any other season. I bet you never really thought about it, but there are certain popular patterns depending on the season, and leave-falling season is no different. In winter you’ll see snowflakes & stars, spring is florals & stripes, summer goes to palm leaves and polka dots, and fall brings us to checkers & leopard. So now that you have that little tidbit of knowledge (don’t ever say I never taught you anything) and you already know that I love leopard more than anyone ever should, let’s chat about why those teeny tiny squares are so chic right about now.

So gingham makes you look like you’re having a 60’s disco party, but still like you know what fashion is. The pattern is fun, can be dressed up or down, looks cute mixed with other patterns (ESPECIALLY LEOPARD), and it’s something that only the brave truly embrace. Also, if you go for the black & white vibe, it kinda makes you look like an old man out golfing with his mates, but in a good way??

Needless to say, check check check it out. 🙂

Have a wonderful Wednesday and much love to you all. <3
