Black and White Checks for Spring

gingham check

I know it’s not spring, but I have to talk about it because I am SO OVER winter. The cold weather is so unmotivating. (Is that even a word?) Believe it or not, I haven’t even been shopping. Total cabin fever.


black and white checks

However, I have been investigating household items (for the new house!!) ….and have discovered that for spring, not only are black and white checks (either gingham or buffalo) on trend in fashion, but also in interiors!

My mom is actually the one who pointed out some black and white check chairs that she loved. After she said that, I started noticing black and white checks everywhere, even bedding at the Pottery Barn I always cut through to get into the mall. Then she also called to tell me that she found some check bedding at Serena & Lily (that is crazy adorable) and she wants it for her new house. So I had to investigate further.

By investigating, I mean shopping. Came across this gingham top at Zara, I just love the sleeves! The rest of the shopping I did, you can find below, so many cute things in black and white check!
