I've been getting very into checkered print (a side effect of my month in New Jersey no doubt) so I love this pattern. The side pockets are probably my favorite detail, though. They add just a bit of whimsy to an otherwise picnic-perfect dress. Other details include bows on each strap, a waist belt of the same pattern and chunky buttons -- you can never go wrong with chunky buttons. The only accessory I felt was necessary was this emerald green varsity jacket, courtesy of Forever21. Kinda feeling like Sandy Olsen right now -- pre leather hot pants.
My thanks once again to Isaiah Johnson, photographer and fashion/lifestyle blogger of A Collected Gentleman for shooting these and even getting a good Marilyn-esque shot!
