In Defense of the Gingham Shirt

We all know the deal: 

Classic fit.  Two-ply cotton.  Button-down collar.  Machine wash.  Import.  

Yes, that's right, we're talking about the classic J Crew gingham shirt.

Faded Gingham: J Crew

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, there's no doubt you've seen variations of this button down all over the place (these threads even have their own I Spy style instagram), but there's a reason why.  

Gingham is a staple item-- a basic for every closet.  This shirt pairs well with with jeans, under a coat, or with a full suit.  Not only does this shirt easily transition from the office to happy hour drinks, but can also be worn across all seasons: rolled or cuffed in the summer and layered under a sweater in the winter.  

Cozy and Cuffed

As a Midwestern girl turned New Yorker transplanted to sunny Los Angeles, it's hard to not laugh when locals complain about the "cold" 70 degree winters.  When we experienced a dip in the weather this week, I eagerly pulled out my favorite cozy outfit from the back of the closet

If I could live in this sweater, I would.  I can wear it to the office or while curled up watching Netflix.  Pair this flowy cardigan with leggings and tall boots --  you'll turn heads while running to catch your plane during your holiday travels.  

Gap is a go-to for denim.  My favorite is their 1969 Legging jean, which cuffs nicely for booties but also  looks great with flats and heels.  I have a very active job in a television studio, so these jeans have experienced their share of wear and tear, but they've stood the test of time.

Cuffs even Francis Maxwell would be proud of.

Rainy Day Apparel

Rain rain DON'T go away...because a) here in Cali, we need you desperately and b) we are digging our rainy day style.

While girls have a great opportunity to bust out fun, nautical themed jackets and cute rainboots, a la Hannah, guys have a harder time navigating how to dress for the weather.

But fear not, Francis and Hannah are laying it out for you...
