the chambray shirt trend

So this is my first stab at the chambray shirt thing. I know, I’m like a year behind but whatever. I’m slow on these things, okay? Anyways, I’m loving it. It makes anything that touch more casual and I am all about casual. The dress I’m wearing could easily be dressed up or down, and I love that the chambray shirt gives it that not-trying-too-hard vibe but the outfit still looks put together. Everyone should own a chambray shirt (and a striped dress, for that matter)!



Check out these little beauties. They are foldable flats from Fit in Clouds. They are the BEST! I have seen foldable flats before, but only plain black ones. They have a bunch of different types (and also flipflops) that come in a cute little zippered pouch and you can just stash them in your bag for when your feet get sore on a night out! They are so so genius and I am loving them! Not to mention, they are super comfy. Get a pair yourself at 20% off with the code PROMO2!


They squish up really small, so I can easily throw them into whatever bag or clutch I’m carrying on any given night. Love it.

You lucky duckies can win yourself a pair of foldable flats or flipflops from Fit in Clouds too, then we can be twins! Good luck :)

  24. I’m so torn between the retro style of flats that you have and the Espadrille folding flats – they’re both gorgeous! I mean if I absolutely HAD to choose I’d go for the retro one’s that you’re sporting!

    This is so funny- I’m way behind on the trends too! It takes me SO long to warm up to the trends and by the time I do fall in love with them, something else comes along! lol I’m still wearing chambray shirts too, lol…like 2-3 times a week!! lol You look gorgeous!

    • Haha oh well- I think that could be a good thing actually. Then you don’t end up buying things you won’t ever wear again!
