gingham can be rock&roll, right?

For the most part, it seems only really irritating songs get stuck in my head. It's like my mental jukebox is permanently set on GratinglyAnnoying.1 FM. I remember that just a few days ago, Ricky Martin somehow elbowed his way into my skull and I ended up driving myself upside-inside-out la vida loca indeed. But today, a rare thing has occurred: I have Led Zeppelin's "Fool in the Rain" stuck in my head. I don't know how it happened, but I'm going to enjoy this while it lasts. You know, before my mind wanders back to the likes of Ace of Base and Rico Suave.

I am a big fan of this gingham shirt. The material is super soft, light, and yes, just a little sheer. It's a bit looser and longer than J.Crew's typical buttondown shirts (I'm wearing my usual size 2 here), but I like it that way. Also, YOWZA at my midsection. AmyK needs to start running again! Because she sure isn't going to stop eating her brother's leftover birthday cake any time soon...

Well folks, this is my last post until June! I'll be gone on vacation for the entirety of next week. I may or may not sneak a post in, but I'm veering more towards "may not" than "may" because I know myself and well, myself is a lazy person. Bwahaha! SEE YOU ALL LATER! Have a great weekend, week, then weekend again!

  6. The gingham is awesome! Was very tempted by a couple o' gingham shirts at Gap today, but holding out for cheaper pricetags. Or fall...suspect I'll be mostly sleeveless soon! You look great---have to say that's my philosophy, too...eat the cheesecake (I cannot say no to it), but put on the running shoes!

  7. You look so cute and really adore the pairing of the shirt with the necklace. It's like they're from two different realms but really complement one another!

  9. ...it's all rock n' roll to me....that's what stuck in my head, now - thanks a lot, lol.

    Love your gingham top! I recently purchased a cheapie from Target that I'm hoping will take the edge off my lust for the J. Crew version!

    Did you get your hair cut? Or maybe it's just curled up, more? Either way, it looks gorgeous today! Have a great vacation!

  11. The love color of your RM MAB is divine. You look great, as usual. I have the zipper denim minnies in black. I'm totally going to pair it with
    my blue check shirt on the next cool day. Which, with WI weather, could be tomorrow!!!

    Have a great vacation!!!!

  17. I have that gingham shirt too and it is one of my faves!! Be careful when washing though... I didn't heed the warnings about not putting in the dryer and mine is all puckered now. It looks like seersucker now though, which I guess works for me.
