I almost feel like using chambray is cheating, because it's so versatile and it's become the poster child (er, shirt) for remixable clothes. However, I chose my polka-dot chambray button-down, so therefore it's a little different, right? Sure.
Behold, the crooked photo. The shirt is from TJ Maxx and I believe I got it for $13 on sale. (I suppose I should have picked up an iron at the same time. Oops.)
I'm only including this because it is the lone picture that shows my head... I'm not trying to be one of those cool, anonymous outfit bloggers. It's 11:30, my hair is icky, and my eyebrows look like Mia Thermopolis. (I'm all about full disclosure.)
1. Tucked In
Yellow pencil skirt- Loft
Flats- Belk (thanks, Mom!)
I wore this very outfit earlier this summer and loved it... chambray and yellow are just made for each other, in my totally uneducated opinion. I would definitely wear this to school.
Knotting it gives this billowy skirt a little more shape without needing a belt. Also, points for pattern mixing! See, the polka dots came in handy!
Skirt- Ann Taylor
I'll have to muster up some courage before I wear this blazer (you know, because of my economy-size shoulders) but I like the idea of dressing it down a little with chambray and a denim pencil skirt. And leopard loafers, because... why not?
Sweater- Old Navy
Shorts- old (Walmart?)
Sperry Topsiders- Belk
For some reason, this look simultaneously makes me feel sporty and childish, like a six-year-old. (Maybe the giant pink heart on my sweater?) And, well, I was a pretty sporty child so it's kind of like the best of both worlds for me.
I just love wearing something super casual and throwing a big ol' sparkly necklace on top. It says "why yes, I did plan my outfit and did not reach for the nearest clothing resembling pajamas."
Is this chambray shirt a little wardrobe workhorse or what? I didn't even venture into fall outfits (I'm picturing scarves, vests, more cardigans...is it fall yet?) So, what's your favorite piece to remix? Visit Audrey's linkup for lots more outfit ideas from people who know how to edit pictures and use their irons, I'm sure.
