Bow-Back Gingham

 Dress:  J. Crew (similar, also love this one)   Shoes: ModCloth (similar)   Bag: 88 ℅   Jacket: Old Navy    Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick


One of my favorite spring prints is gingham, and I love this old J. Crew dress with a self-tie bow back.  I love gingham with lace to give it some contrasting texture, so I added these heels.  Sort of fun fact- I only own two pairs of heels at the moment!  My vegan transition prompted me to get rid of all my leather heels, cutting my entire shoe collection down to less than 15 pairs.  While that certainly doesn't qualify as minimalism (I couldn't imagine owning only one or two pairs of shoes), I'm actually kind of loving my smaller selection of shoes.  It feels good not to have an overwhelming amount of pairs in my closet, and it's almost like a fresh start.

This bag is another one from 88's summer collection!  It's made of a gorgeous vegan saffiano leather, and it even has a shoulder strap.  Again, their designer quality stuns me, and I love the peachy, rosy color (this one is Cafe au Lait), although it comes in many other options.   Something I noticed was that it stays very clean- I've ruined many a nude purse with tea stains or dark wash jeans, but the material holds up wonderfully.  

Happy May!  It's my favorite month of the year (although my birthday is this month so I may be a tad biased ;-)
