Style Gingham Print

Happy September! Shame on me for neglecting my readers here on the blog.  I am sure you have noticed my time in between post is waaaaay too long. I promise I am working on creating a more “schedule” like for blog post to come. If you are new to My Brunette Adventure I recently started an online boutique which currently has most of my attention and time aside from my full time job. Oh how I need more than 24 hours in a day!! Well enough of my excuses.  Don’t forget to check out my DIY staircase makeover blog post here. It looks great and has really made our stairs look a million times better than the old, ugly carpet. Today’s blog post is one of my favorite patterns right now, gingham!

I picked up these Gingham shorts at the beginning of the summer, but you can get them on sale now, here. They can be paired with so many colored tops and types of tops.  You just might see me wearing them again next weekend for Labor Day! 🙂 Today’s outfit was quick and easy to throw on to run weekend errands. Don’t you just love those kind of outfits? This post has been waiting and waiting to make its debut as it was from weeks ago when my husband and I took a day trip to IKEA. Yes, we have to travel 2 hours one way to the nearest IKEA!! But this outfit was great for the hot summer heat and day date with the hubs! Check out our new dining room rug we picked up from IKEA over on my Instagram. @mybrunetteadventure  We are also in the process of a DIY farmhouse table that will be on the blog one day. Yes, one day when it is finally finished. 🙂

This weekend was still quite warm here in Indy. Todays outfit post is centered around these blush colored striped Gap shorts I got on sale this past weekend. Maybe ‘Sale’ is not the correct word, more like a bargain! And ladies, this is why I always take a quick browse at those daunting sales racks.  They are always picked through, but you never know what will be lurking in your size. Gap was having a huge sale on shorts and other summer items.  I picked up this pair for $5.11. Yes, that is not a typo, $5.11! I did see online they are still regular price, so make sure to check your stores clearance.  Check out your local Gap to see if there is something worth your while.

This Kate Spade clutch was my first purchase on Poshmark.  It is one of my favorite accessories and glad I got it at low price this past spring. When I clean out my closet I post them in my closet on Poshmark!
