Bargain week continues with Gingham Under $30. Gingham is huge right now. You will see it everywhere (if you haven’t already). Dresses and tops and shorts and … the list really could go on.  While gingham is harder to pull off at the office, unless you include some structure, it is perfect for some of the upcoming Holidays. Think Memorial Day BBQs  or 4th of July Picnics.  Pair the navy and white gingham with a bright red cami and you are ready for fireworks. #nevertooearly

I’ve had my eye on a few pairs of gingham ankle pants but since I can really only pull them off at work on casual Friday I didn’t want to make a huge investment. I did a roundup of Spring Items in March and loved a pair of Gingham Ankle pants but they were not anywhere close to $30 (you may find some good sales on those items now). I’ve also seen cute Gingham pants at Ann Taylor, Loft or Banana Republic but they were still more than I wanted to spend.  And then in one visit to Target, the hunt was over.  I found the most adorable pair of ankle pants.  I saw them as I was entering the store – they were on display in the window – and I had the whole escalator ride to drool and cross my fingers they were in the store in my size!   #shouldhaveboughtalotteryticket #loveatfirstsight

My Gingham Ankle Pants

These fit true to size and look fabulous.  I love the cropped length and the detail trim on the side.  You really could pair these with any color top (red, yellow, orange ….) #yougettheidea

Gingham Under $30

Women's Printed Classic Ankle Pant - Merona™ Xavier Navy

These are the pants I am wearing.  Adorable.  I paired them with a navy top and blazer for the perfect casual Friday look.

Women's Gingham Top - Merona™ Navy

I mentioned you need structure to pull this off in the office – this shell has that.  I would add even more structure by pairing this with a pencil skirt (red would be very unexpected and fabulous) but it would also work with a brightly colored pair of ankle pants – I’m thinking pink or green (check back tomorrow for some options would work!) #toomanychoices

Women's Ruffle Trim Shell - Who What Wear

I showcased this shell yesterday.  I love the idea of black and white because it literally goes with anything.  To keep if workplace appropriate I would go with black cropped pants or a pencil skirt. #blackandwhite #classic

Gingham Dresses

Women's Gingham Short - Merona™ Dress - Merona

I cannot say enough about how adorable this dress is.  I could only pull this off on a Friday – maybe with a short cardigan for more coverage.  More relaxed offices could wear this everyday. All dresses are Buy one Get One 50% off through Saturday.  #channelingmyinnerdorothy

Women's Plaid Shirt Dress - Merona

Another adorable dress that I could only wear to work on a Friday.  Again, a more casually office environment could wear this everyday.  The site listed the model at 5’10” so I don’t think this is as short as it is appearing on her.  And I really love the idea of the pockets.  This is dress is not only under $30 but is on clearance for $13.98!  #modelwithlegsfordays #bonusbargain

Bonus Gingham


Women's Sonya Wedge Espadrille Ballet Flats - Merona

And for a little BONUS – How cute are these shoes? I can’t wear these to work any day of the week but they were too cute not to include. #nowineedavacation My 9 to 5 Shoes Target Red Card
