Trend Watch: Gingham

Gingham, the checkered white and colored fabric Judy Garland famously donned in the Wizard of Oz, took over the Spring 2015 runways. From Oscar de la Renta’s oversized take of the mod fabric to Altuzarra, Michael Kors and Bottega Venetta’s use of the pattern, it looks like gingham is here to stay (well, at least for this upcoming season).

If you’re not a fan of the retro pattern, look back to Brigitte Bardot for inspiration. The blond bombshell walked down the aisle in a pink gingham dress, a move so daring it caused a gingham shortage in France. Who could’ve guessed that could even happen?

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
