The Tiny Heart: Gingham + Stripes

Gingham + Stripes






Button Down-H&M (similar), Tank-Express (similar), Jeans-A&F, Necklace-Unknown (similar), Flats-Target (similar), Bag-H&M (similar)

This post is being linked up with See Me Rwar's Little Facts! Today's Little Facts about me are:

Pet Peeve: Cars with one brake light and people that don't use their signals. These types of people must think I have driving ESP and will automatically know when and which way you're going to turn.

Food: I love to cook/eat any kind of Italian food (spaghetti, meatballs, baked ziti, chicken cacciatore, eggplant parm) and I could eat it every single day and never get sick of it. Funny enough, I am not Italian.

Guaranteed Happiness: Taking a walk along the beach with my little family, my hubby and two furbabies!

  1. I WISH i lived near the beach. The dog absolutely loves the beach. The only time that damn dog is calm is after she's been able to run on a beach for awhile.
    I love this combo of stripes and gingham. I am totally copying this when I get a striped vest...haha.
    Thanks for grabbing my button. I'll grab yours later today.

    1. We're too scared to let the dogs run loose on the beach (a few years ago Jinx ran so far my husband had to get in the car to chase after him), but Jinx loves to swim in the summer so that tires him out. Luckily there's a dog park near us that's completely fenced in, so they can be off leash there :)

    I HATE when people don't use their signals... but I also hate when people never turn on their signals and then never turn them off... UGH

  10. I love your outfit! The signal thing drives me crazy too, the worst is when they have their right turn signal on and then turn LEFT!

    1. Yeah that is pretty awful too! Do people WANT to get into accidents? Seems around here people are bigger fans of not using their signals at all...it must be a Jersey shore thing!

  21. I was just at H&M and saw that shirt, I love how it is doublesided with stripes as the lining :) The look is fab Sharon! And also, I totally agree with you, I think I was Italian in my past life because I would eat pasta and enjoy a glass of italian red wine every nite if I could!

    1. The stripes lining is my favorite part...they should've made it reversible! And wine with pasta=amazing!

  23. This is such a cool look, I love how both patterns are blue! I love to cook and eat Italian food too, I simply cannot cook any Asian food at all :(

    1. Thanks Joyce! I've never attempted to make Asian food...seems much more difficult than Italian so for that one I stick to take out :)

  28. Love the mixed prints! I think it's awesome that they're nearly the same colours!

    I, too, could eat italian food ALL THE TIME. And I'm not in one bit italian. There's just something about pasta, cheese, tomatoes, and all those other good (but not so good for you) things that them italians make their food with.. Ahh I'm hungry now.

  34. How totally fun!!! Loving the stripes/checks put together...esp since they're both blue, it makes for a great pattern contrast. And the pearls are the perfect touch.

  36. Loev how you played with blue + white here Sharon! And the scenery is so cool. I miss the beach!!
    So I am right there with ya on disliking folks that don't use their turn signals. I get so irritated when I am waiting to turn, see a car coming and then at the last minute they turn...I just wasted all that time!
    Boo...
    Happy Friday!
