Checkered or Gingham?

I have been on a kick with adding more gingham in my closet.  In my quest for gingham, I came across this pencil skirt and thought it would be a great way to wear gingham at the office.  Plus I am a sucker for pencil skirts so how can I say no. 

When I wore it the other day, it got me thinking what is the difference between  gingham and checkered since they are both similar print.

According to, gingham is is a year dyed, plain weave cotton fabric, usually striped or checkered.  An checkered is marked with squares.  So if I was being technical, this skirt is more checkered than gingham.  Either way, I love it!

Speaking of love, I am totally loving my new watch from my new watch from Jord.   They kindly sent me the Sidney watch which is made of maple and rose gold.  I was afraid that the watch would be too heavy but it is really light weight and the swarvoski crystals on the face of the watch gives it an extra feminine touch that I adore.  I also love that they provide you with a downloaded measuring tape to measure your wrist so your watch comes perfectly sized for you.  I am one of those lazy people that never gets things resized.
