Summer to Fall Fashion Must Have: Gingham {+ A $75 PinkBlush Gift Card Giveaway} #shoppinkblush #prettyinpinkblush

**I received a complimentary dress from PinkBlush for consideration. My love of fashion and opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own. 

It seems like summer has just gotten started, but as the kids head back to school we are reminded that summer will be here before we know it. The stores are starting to clear out the swimsuits and tank tops, and we'll soon be seeing cardigans and cozy sweaters making their way to the racks. As much as I love fall fashion... I'm also not quite ready to give up on my cute summer dresses quite yet. This is why during this time, I start finding myself looking for transition pieces: pieces that can carry me through these final summer days all the way through early fall and beyond.

And the print that I am loving right now?

Gingham!



I'll be honest, I'm a little obsessed with gingham. From fashion to home decor, you'll see it a lot around me. Even my favorite Bath and Body Works scent just so happens to be... yes, you guessed it. GINGHAM!

Gingham is not just cute... it's extremely versatile too. With just a little change of styling, it can be the perfect print for summer OR fall. Let's take a look at this adorable Mustard Sleeveless Gingham Dress from PinkBlush as an example.



Okay, first and foremost... can we just talk about this color for a moment? Absolutely stunning. If gingham is my go to print, mustard is my go to color. I adore it. Mustard is a great color for this transitional period too. On it's own, yellow regardless of shade is bright and sunshine-y... it screams summer. Pair it with a true blue or even teal for a pop of color. Because mustard is a deeper yellow, it also goes great for fall, especially when paired with other great fall hues like a plum. Still, if a yellow dress isn't quite your cup of tea, you can also grab it in black and white. Likewise, depending on your color pairings, this color can be great for various seasons too. A bright yellow necklace and shoes would really pop and be the ideal summer look, while some cute booties and olive sweater take it to fall!

It's not just the color that will take this dress from summer to fall though- styling makes ALL the difference. It is HOT here in Indiana right now... so kept my styling quite simple wearing the dress on its own. While the dress does come with a sash tie, I opted to switch it out for a more stylized look and to match the cute high heeled sandals. Personally, I love that this gives me options. To me, a more structured belt dresses it up a bit--- perfect for church! Using the included sash tie helps keep the look lighter and more casual...it truly looks great either way!


Once the fall weather rolls in and we start unpacking those cool weather fashion, we can add a cute blazer or cardigan for extra warmth and swap out the sandals for a cute pair of boots. Even a cute scarf would look GREAT with this dress. 1 dress, 2 seasons, multiple looks! Like I said, this is a closet MUST HAVE! 

And like all the great styles from PinkBlush, the quality is absolutely fantastic. It is soft and comfortable, and isn't sheer! Finding lighter color dresses such as this one can sometimes be quite the pain for this reason. No one wants that! Sure, we can use slips... but in the summer? We try to avoid extra layers when possible. This dress is double lined to prevent sheerness, and is still plenty lightweight for those hot summer days. My experience with PinkBlush has shown me not only do they look great new, but they hold up really well over time too. Oh, and did I mention that like many of the gorgeous PinkBlush styles, it is available in maternity as well?
