This week, we’re featuring Reader of the Week Lindsay Emow. I've always been into pattern mixing but have always steered clear of gingham because it always looks too much like something I would have worn 15 years ago. InStyle’s "You Can Do" feature on gingham really inspired me to add a new pattern into my wardrobe. By adding a simple gingham pattern like this pink one (Revolve), pairing it with a mature, but fun, skirt (H&M), and toning it down with a simple jean jacket (Forever 21), I feel comfortable wearing this outfit because it shows off my style---polished with a touch of whimsicality.
