COOKOUT COUTURE ~ CREATE 28


Did someone say Cookout? I knew immediately what I wanted to style for today's Create 28 prompt of cookout couture. Gingham and checks just go hand in hand with a yummy cookout. Maybe it is those summer shiny red and white checkered tablecloths. All I know is this girl loves grilled food, fresh fruits and veggies and a refreshing beverage. And I love a comfy shirtdress!! Oh, I do bet some of you are wondering how the party weekend went? HUGE success but this mama has so many pictures to go through and edit, it may be a bit before a recap. And I'm TIRED!! LOL


I adore dressing red, white and blue Americana in the Summer months and these are two other all Americana type outfits I'd wear to a cookout, especially around the 4th of July.


For this prompt, I just wanted to spice it up some more with lace up espidrilles and a red patent clutch.



This dress was a super good deal online from saksoff5th.com Here

I just had to pair this with some white framed sunglasses from Charming Charlie

  14. I love that dress so much! I even went as far as following your link to buy it, & told myself what an awesome deal it was, before telling myself that I needed to calm down because I'm trying not to spend & have a stitch fix coming this week. It looks great on you though! Perfect for a cookout & summer in general.

  34. I have been eyeing and visiting a black and white gingham dress in the window of Ann Taylor. Probably can't afford it but sure is cute. Goodness, your dress is even cuter. Much prefer the blue to black and white. And your patriotic red accessories and white shoes are perfect. I hope you have begun to recover from the graduation festivities. We all look forward to seeing pics of the celebration.

  41. I have never seen a better oversized gingham-print shirt-dress and it is perfectly styled with red and white for a nautical and Americana, perfect for a fancy cookout/BBQ 4th of July look. Absolutely stunning. I love and need your dress and shoes.

    I am actually styling a similar sleeveless plaid-ish coral+white shirt-dress today. I would love for you to stop by and see it.
