I know that this skirt is a standout on its own, but to subdue its beauty, and to make it a little less casual, if you will, I paired it with this red gingham shirt I purchased from Old Navy a couple of months ago. Now, I am not the biggest Old Navy shopper, but every year, they have at least one thing that I fall in love with. This shirt is that item. I purchased it in 5 different colors! I know, I know. I have it in yellow, blue, blue/pink combo, and a light chambray also. It is the perfect summer shirt as it is an ultra thin, almost tissue-thin cotton and a great layering piece. The pure Americana of red gingham, paired with this African printed skirt, was just the juxtaposition I was looking for. And it reflects the duality that exists within me.
