Dark Gray Chambray

Top: Must Have via Amazon | Jeans: GAP | Flats: Mossimo via Target

I wore this outfit for a spa-day with some girlfriends, hence no makeup or styled hair. I totally need to trim my bangs again. Sorry it's a mess. Anyway, it's really the top that I wanted to show you. It's the only piece of clothing I have in chambray. I love the collar on the slight sweetheart neckline and the decorative buttons. (I probably could have done without the waist-tie, though.) I bought it sometime last year or very early this year in preparation for summertime, but I forgot about it after it went into my closet -- which happens more frequently than it should. I'm glad I finally remembered, although I need to figure out a better way to build an outfit around it. A white pencil skirt or even a white ruffled skirt would have worked. Also, neon-colored skinny jeans or skinny shorts would have been great for the season. Alas, I have none of the above! I have some gray wool shorts that I can try next time, but I'm leery of that particular monochromatic scheme (too boring). It might also be boring to wear the top with skinny black capris. Well, we'll see.

  1. I just LOVE seeing your face! Such a cute outfit. I bet you can re-create that top minus the waist tie. Gosh, I would love to have a stitch n' bitch circle!!! I have a sewing machine but I've only used it for paper crafts. Gaaah! I need to learn how to sew. :(

    1. thanks for the sweetness, dorothy! yes, i'd love to try my hand at recreate some of my favorite clothing, just to see if i can do it. if you have a sewing machine, you should find some scrap fabric (avoid the stretchy knits if you can) and practice straight and curved stitching. ... when you're ready i can point you to some free online patterns and resources to make clothes! i don't know how similar sewing paper is to sewing fabric (i'd love to learn how to sew for paper crafts, actually), but i'm sure it's not that different! xoxo


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here. :-)
