Picnic at the Park

The things that come to mind when I think of summer are long days at the beach, relaxing with a cold glass of lemonade, barbeques with the family, and picnics with friends at the park! Inspired by the checkered print of the picnic blanket, this fun pattern is a great alternative to stripes during the summer months! Adding a touch of cuteness to an outfit, the print can be both eye-catching and bold, or retro and simplistic depending on the colors you choose! Whether red, blue, yellow, or classic black the gingham print can work for just about anyone! Not ready to go all out with the print? Try adding touches of gingham to your look with accessories featuring the pattern!
