5 Ways to Wear Chambray

I was pleasantly surprised to see that my outfit posts have been some of my most popular posts this year.  I love putting together cute outfits so I'm going to try to document them better for you.  I put together outfits every day, but don't usually take the time to take pictures of them.  Warmer weather and more daylight will help with that.

How many chambray shirts do you own??

I have 6 because I love them so much.  I've got sleeveless, polka-dot, embroidered, dark wash, light wash and oversized.  They're so versatile and can easily be dressed up or dressed down.  I've picked them up at Old Navy, GAP, Walmart and JCPenneys.

Today I'm going to talk to you about  


1. Chambray + Black pants
I love this combo.  It's classic and looks good on everyone.  Add in some fun shoes (leopard booties), a great scarf and earrings and you're set.  Can't mess up this combo.

2. Chambray + Vest
It's easy to layer a vest on top of a good chambray shirt.  I added a scarf because it's freezing.  Kevin picked this plaid scarf out for me and gets excited any time I wear it.  I love this vintage sweater vest.  I paired it with distressed denim and brown booties.

3. Chambray underneath a Sweater or Sweatshirt
I love this floral sweatshirt from Old Navy.  If I want to dress it up a bit and make my outfit look more put together I'll add my chambray underneath.  Paired it with leather earrings and my favorite gray New Balance sneakers.  Tip: Pull the chambray sleeves out and cuff them.  This is a great time to wear an oversized chambray.

4. Chambray + a skirt
I picked up this fabulous gold skirt on clearance at Target and I just love it.  I can't stop smiling every time I wear it.  I did chambray, skirt and a fun vintage neck scarf.  It was freezing this Sunday morning so I added tights and clogs.

5. Sleeveless Chambray under any sweater
I found this sleeveless chambray at JCPenneys a couple of years ago.  I wear it all the time.  It's the perfect light layer to wear under shirts.  I get hot easily so I love having this sleeveless top to layer.  That way your arms aren't bulky with so many layers.
