Gingham Style


I have been searching for these gingham Mary Jane’s ever since I spotted them on Frannie Gilligan several months ago. Thankfully, these Italian Drogheria Crivellini¬†Mary Jane flats just arrived at Clare V. check them out here. Also, fresh off the press is this chic Clare V. tie dye set (here¬†&¬†here), and this candy stripe puff sleeve midi from & Other Stories (so cute!). As we head into the weekend I’d love to lounge in these super soft Free City¬†sweats, AG muscle tank, and take a stroll in these¬†Kahru¬†sneakers. Happy weekend everyone! XX
