Today’s OTI was a reader submission.  Gingham, a twirly skirt, and a cardigan.

I own a gingham shirt and I recently discovered that I love to wear it with this oatmeal colored cardigan.  Plus, I’ve been looking for a way to wear it with my white A-line skirt.  Throw in a fun pop of greenish teal with my new necklace and my favorite fun wedges and you have an outfit.

However, due to several things I have planned for today (including a party where there will be wine.  Red wine.  Red wine and a white skirt do not go well together for me) I opted to swap out the white skirt for a denim one.  And ditch the cardigan since it’s supposed to be almost 80 degrees here today.

I bought these shoes last summer on a whim.  I don’t normally like wedges but for some reason these just called out to me.  I’ve worn them so many times since then and almost always get compliments on them.  They’re not as crazy as my zebra heels but they’re more practical for summer and can be dressed up or down. 

So, which look do you prefer?  White skirt and cardigan or no cardigan and denim skirt?

P.S.  I’m also linking up with Simply Sarah for her shoes link-up party!
