Chambray on Red

Chambray Shirt - Forever21
Red Denim - Hybrid & Company, similar here
Heels - Zara
Clutch - Vintage (old, from jr. high -- yes, jr. high)
Sunnies - Ray Ban
Jewelry - Hermes, Assorted David Yurman, Swatch watch, Forever21 (similar here and here), Cartier, Derng

 What?  This outfit looks familiar because it's now staring at you on the home page?  Just another fun web addition thanks to the talented Caroline of Between Your Ears.  Caroline has helped me redesign this entire blog and I. AM. SO. AMAZED. BY. HER.  She is so talented and easy to work with.  AND she never tells me "you are so annoying, can you leave me alone for, like, 5 minutes?"  When I know I've asked her 8,000 questions, 7,950 of them being dumb.  Caroline also has amazing taste (which is obvious by her blog) and her home is featured on The Everygirl -- check it out here!

As for the outfit -- I won't lie, a chambray shirt is one trend I thought I would never embrace.  Bringing back denim on anything other than pants is something I had a hard time considering attractive.  However I've been eating my words for several months as I rock not one but TWO chambray shirts that have joined my closet.  Whoops -- never say never!!  You never know, this time next year I could be talking about how my new skort is rocking my world.  And I DO have some of those from the late 90's I might be able to pull out...I was like, 5'5" in the sixth grade, let it go.

  1. I'm the same way on the chambray trend. Thought I would never do it, yet I am feverishly looking for one that isn't sold out. I think floral printed jeans are going to be the next trend that creeps up on me - and wouldn't they look great with my chambray shirt? cute outfit-love love love the red :)

  4. I thought the same thing about chambray. I had a horrible over-sized short-sleeved Duck Head shirt I wore with khaki shorts in junior high, so I thought I would NEVER wear such again...until this summer. I ordered one and have loved wearing it! I was thrilled to see such a fashionista as yourself rocking one! It looks great on you. Thanks for validating my hunch that they were making a comeback.

    1. I hear you sister...I never thought I would be wearing the chambray and I'm eating my words. Glad to hear I'm not the only one!! You rock that denim shirt....but not that Duck Head one. Retire that with my plaid skort.

  6. I'm totally rocking my beloved chambray shirt as I type right now. It's surprisingly versatile. BTW, I found you via The Every Girl. I read the feature on Caroline Inge's home, ended up at her blog, and you were at the top of her blogroll. I'm so glad I found you!

  8. You look so cute. I love this outfit! I finally got a chambray shirt this spring and am loving it. Unfortunately I don't look nearly this cute in colored jeans though!
