Word on the street is that gingham is the top trend for summer. I'm already a big fan (here and here, for example), so no need to twist my arm! I spotted this romper for $25 online and while it's too early to call it - it's already in the running for best find of the summer! I ordered the S Tall size (I'm only 5'7" but long in the torso), and I think the S would be plenty long, too. And no your eyes do not deceive you - the romper and my earrings are navy, while my shoes, purse and hat are black. (I think they blend seamlessly, but it would be a deal breaker for some.) Gingham for summer: thumbs up or thumbs down?
