Feeling Fierce: The Chambray Shirt

Chambray Shirt: Mudd from KOHL’s, Sweater: Anthropologie, Jeans: Celebrity Jeans from KOHL’s, Boots: Urban Outfitters, Sunglasses: ALDO

Yes I finally found a chambray shirt! It’s been one of those wish list items of mine ever since October when I blogged about it here.

I love pairing the shirt with these black jeans but I am also guilty of wearing it with blue jeans too! I know wearing a chambray shirt with blue jeans gives the appearance of the whole denim on denim look that used to be a fashion faux pas until recently. And I am sure there will be a day soon when denim on denim or the “Canadian Tuxedo” as they call it will once again be a crime in the eyes of the Fashion Police… but right now I love this trend.

Plus, there are a million and one ways to wear this shirt!¬†It looks cute tucked into skirts, or with a t-shirt underneath and the buttons undone, by it self or underneath a chunky knit sweater! It’s comfy, cute and versatile all in one. If you’re hoping to try any fashion trend this season, I highly suggest getting your hands on a chambray shirt.

Do you own a chambray shirt? How do you wear it?


Shopping after 30×30

Since completing my second 30×30 challenge this past August with Holly, many of you have asked me what I’ve bought since the challenge has ended? Well here they are!

1) This super luxe polka dot scarf on sale from Jcrew (Holly got the same one!). 2) These¬†black ankle boots that I wear everywhere, everyday and are super comfy from Urban Outfitters! 3) Cupcakes and Cashmere book named after the blog: Cupcakes and Cashmere by famous blogger Emily Schuman. She’s like a young and hip Martha Stewart. And 4) BB Cream! I don’t wear a ton of make up, so I was very intrigued by a make up claiming to do 5 jobs in one. So far I am impressed. It’s lightweight and idiot proof to apply. yay!

By the way if you’re wondering how I created such a lovely little photo collage, I used PicMonkey for the first time! And it’s amazing! Thanks to Holly for recommending it to me. Yup, she’s awesome like that… try it for yourself. It’s free!
