I've never met a gingham I didn't love, and the Dorothy Top is definitely no exception.  The Dorothy Top is a staple that comes in two colors and features 3/4 sleeves, a keyhole back and a flattering neckline...and by flattering I mean, cleavage.  The Mandy Skirt is one of those skirts that once you put it on you don't want to take it off.  Better yet, since it comes in 4 colors, you can wear a Mandy Skirt most days of the week!

The Dorothy Top + the Mandy Skirt was such a classic and fantastic pairing.  I completed the rockabilly feel of the outfit with my mom's vintage white cowboy boots.  They're pretty much the best shoes I own, because they were my moms...and because they're white vintage cowboy boots.  Michael and I go exploring on our days off together, so I twirled and swirled my way around the park, and there are arguably few things more fun than twirling in a swing skirt.  

Since Steady let us pick our items this time, I'm pretty sure Michael went through all of their shirts about 5 times trying to pick the perfect shirt.  He eventually decided on the Sparrow/Bones Western, because it was just too amazing to pass up!  Western shirts are a classic, and this one definitely puts a modern spin on that.  The fact that the embroidery was skeletal sparrows (instead of regular sparrows) was something we both really liked.  There are plenty of shirts that feature sparrows, but one featuring their skeletons was creepy in just the right way.  We also liked that Michael didn't quite match me, but the blue, white and black plaid + the gingham complimented one another.

We had so much fun exploring in our new Steady pieces, and I'm pretty sure people that saw us thought we were part of a western swing band.  It also rained on our adventure, which the dark rain clouds give away.  June mentioned it before, but make sure to see our previous Steady outfits in the Steady Clothing Label (located on the left sidebar).  Also, don't forget Steady offered 10% off until Friday July 25th using the promo code 10Peaches.

Are you as crazy about gingham as I am?  


  1. Omg I love both your outfits this week so much. I have a (not so) secret love for western looking clothing ( especially sqaure dance dresses with massive skirts). I'm definitely gonna need that top you're wearing. Quite possibly also Amandas dress although I don't usually wear wiggle dresses but she looked so amazing I was inspired <3

  2. This outfit looks great on you, and I especially love the top! I had to enter this one <3
