Gingham and Stripes + {Mix it Monday Link Up}

Happy Monday everyone. I hope you had a great weekend. It's back to the grind and my brain is getting wired for more work, more possibilities and knocking items off my to do list.

When I purchased this blue gingham shirt, I had a difficult time styling it. The reason is it's a little too big. I got it in large from Old Navy to fit over my chest so it's big every where else. Surprisingly, I've been able to wear it a number of times. As you can see from my remix below, I make it work by layering. I may alter it later to fit better so that I can wear it alone.  Today's outfit was inspired by this pin from Serena Saga's blog.
