Le pique-nique

IMG_2612

I’m not actually going on a picnic. But this outfit looks like I am, huh??

Gingham! A print I truly love and find oh-so-charming is coming back into my wardrobe, with summer rolling around soon. It just has that summer feel, so this is the time of year I tend to start wearing it.

It is from H&M, but I bought it last year, so it’s been awhile. πŸ™‚

First off, I hope everyone’s been having a good week! Mine seemed to fly by in a blur. Although, it was a quiet week at work. I’ve been reading a lot, on my own time. My current read is a historical non-fiction book, and actually I’m just about wrapping it up…

This book is soooooooo fascinating, albeit very creepy at the same time. It’s just an eerie subject because the author is concluding that no one will ever truly know what caused this, and I also learned a tremendous amount of things about this time period…some of it, I kind of wish I was still oblivious of.

It mentions the writings of the Brothers Grimm in a theoretical thought, which I found to be super interesting:

So fascinating to think the dancing plague could have been an inspiration in the original Snow White story!

All-in-all, it’s a fast read that pulls you in and keeps you engaged throughout, and I have truly been enjoying it!

Outfit time. πŸ™‚

Ahhhhh…blue and white gingham: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz vibes! I’ve always been fond of her dress in that film, since I was little. It has such an old-fashioned, demure look to it.

And if you add a little floral tie headband in your hair, you’re definitely stepping up the retro look.

Doesn’t the backyard look cute? It’s funny how the entire look of it has changed since it’s been painted green. I absolutely love it.

There was a two-lane highway of ants on that tree, by the way. Silly me had my hand on it until I realized I was not alone. Fortunately I was spared from having any ants get on me…hahaaaaa.

Well folks, I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading!

‘Til next time! ❀

  1. Always love reading your blog Sammy ! Cute dress ! I never knew that pattern was called gingham? I would call it picnic basket blue πŸ™‚ Pretty interesting about the book! And watch out for those ants they probably think you are honey! Just like the bees!

  2. When I first saw your top, I thought, oh, like the Wizard of Oz, and then you said it too! It’s very cute, and I like the pattern mixing with the floral headband. That’s interesting about the plague book; under the surface, most fairy tales are really creepy! The two-lane highway of ants made me laugh πŸ™‚
