If you were thinking about adding a casual springtime dress without breaking your budget, you may want to consider this adorable gingham number! It's only $15 and an adorable choice for spring. As much as I love gingham, I actually don't own many gingham items. For years I stayed away because I worried it would make me look like a tablecloth or a farmer. But after getting a blue gingham button up a few years back I've been able to talk some sense into myself. As a bonus, this dress has bell sleeves which adds a fun, trendy element to it. Given the price, I wondered how the quality would be, but I was pleasantly surprised. It isn't lined, so I would recommend adding a slip underneath because in some lights it can be a bit sheer. As far as sizing goes, I sized up to a medium and it fits perfectly so it runs about one size small. I am 5'5" and it ends just above my knees. I am comfortable with the length, but I'm glad it is not any shorter than that! I'm looking forward to wearing this dress more with fun colored accessories like my hot pink necklace!

Last week's most popular post was from Hilary at Embellishments with tips on how to dress up those casual days. I am loving those wedges she's wearing!

  6. I love your necklace with the dress! Gingham is always my favorite! I had that dress from Shein or one very similar. It was pretty short on me but so cute - I'm 5'5" too but maybe because I'm bigger everywhere else it didn't hang quite right, lol. I ended up getting rid of it but I sure was sad about it because I love the sleeves and the print! The way you styled it is perfect!

  32. That IS indeed the cutest gingham dress.

  33. Now I know how you stayed under $50 with your April purchases. Who's ever heard of a $15 dress! And one that looks so cute on. Great find. Perfect fit. I'm thinking that must be your new bag, too. Very roomy. You might be able to sneak a diaper and wipes and even a bottle in there and ditch the diaper bag!!

  34. Couldn't agree more, that's a really cute gingham dress indeed! I absolutely love the bellsleeves, so chic and cozy for cold days of spring. Love the matching bag and shoes too, such a cute contrast.

  35. I love the gingham dress! I have one similar, only mine's a bit shorter so I wear it as a tunic. The bright necklace and tan shoes and bag look great with it! Thanks for linking up!
