Check Please

The check print is budding big time for Spring 2015, and looking fresh as a daisy on a heavily anticipated spring day, especially in pastel or vibrant color!

Big, as in buffalo check or small, as in the sweetest of gingham, it's girly, coy, retro, and edgy with a modern, measured mix of almost any other pattern.  The possibilities are endless!

It simultaneously looks effortless All American or Old World European charmer.  It is a great companion to the quintessentially Southwestern look or to a South of France county ch√Ęteau.

Black and white always make a chic statement ~ It tones down the trend and becomes a timeless, classic, urbane look.  Colorful accessories give you unlimited options.

 Macro checks give a bolder op art appeal with a geometric, in your face feeling.  Not for the wallflower.

Sweet Cheeks

Then again, the micro or macro check evokes a neutrality that transcends trends ~ equally feminine OR masculine in feel.

I realized I have none of this perfect little pattern in my home or closet ~ so, a shopping trip is in order because I need a little check in my life... please
