Gingham was a very popular pattern this summer, but I never got around to trying it. Luckily it works well for fall, too! I paired this black and white top with skinny jeans, cognac boots and a utility-style vest for a classic, somewhat preppy look. The shirt was only $17 from Target and I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of it. When it starts to get colder, it will layer well under heavier cardigans and sweaters. Cognac-colored boots are also a must for fall and winter. I found this pair at Nordstrom Rack for only $16! It was the middle of summer when I purchased them, so not many people in Vegas were on the hunt for tall boots in 110-degree weather (only the boot-obsessed bargain hunters like myself). Score!
