I Feel Pretty | In Chambray

There’s no doubt that one of my favorite pieces that I’ve upgraded my wardrobe with recently is my chambray shirt.  Actually I didn’t even buy it for myself.  My hubby got it for me for my birthday.  When I first saw it I thought, I’m NEVER going to wear that thing.  It wasn’t that I didn’t like it.  I just rarely wore button downs of any kind.  But as the Biebs would say, never say never…

And for good reason, check out how he rocks chambray with denim on denim.


First I paired it up with colored denim.

Then I got all crazy like Justin and wore it with denim on denim.

After that I layered it under a sweater.

Then I got super brave and wore it with leggings.

It has truly been a closet staple for fall and winter.

And now I’m looking at ways to keep pairing it up for spring and summer.

With mint jeans, a striped tank and floral flats.

With some floral shorts and wedges. I lived in my floral shorts last summer and plan to get more this year.

  1. I love that chambray shirt! My favorite outfit you’ve worn is probably the one with the sweater over it. They go so well together!

    Stopping by from the Random Wednesday linkup 🙂

  2. I LOVE the outfits that you put together with the chambray! I have been hesitant because chambray was “big” when I was in college, and it feels weird to be wearing it again. 🙂 But your outfits are fresh and current. 🙂

  3. Hey there! I am so happy to find a link party. Thanks for hosting! 🙂 I love chambray…it is a very versitile piece to have in your wardrobe. I love what you did with in in all your looks.


  4. Cute outfits! I see those shirts at the store but have never bought one due to my lack of style! I never new what to wear it with. Thanks for sharing your ideas and inspiring me to step out of my jeans and t-shirts and into something cute! Have a great day!

  5. What a great way to start my day- I feel SO pretty:) Thanks for the link, girl! Great post, too- I have yet to jump on the chambray bandwagon, but, oh I def need to!

  6. I love all the ways you wore the chambray and agree its definitely a staple item in a closet. Such fun spring/simmer looks you created for it as well! Thanks for the link up!

  7. All three of those styles are awesome. I especially love the floral shorts with the yellow bag. I ow feel the need to own floral shorts. I always wear plain ones but I could definitely rock those!

  8. I am a huge fan of the chambray shirt. have two, considering buying a polka dot version from Old Navy. So super versatile – as you have so clearly demonstrated with your super cute outfits.

  9. This post just reminds me I need a chambray shirt. Why do I not have one yet? I love the chambray paired with yellow. It’s a great combo! And I’m excited about your link up! I definitely see some things I need to pin!

  10. I couldn’t agree more about chambray! It is a definite staple! I loved all the ways you have worn it and the style boards you put together!!! High five for the denim! 😉 Thanks for linking up!

  11. I love the chambray trend, and you look beautiful in it! I especially like your denim-on-denim look! I actually wore mint & chambray on the blog just barely! I love your idea to wear it over a bikini, might have to try it this summer…

  12. I love your chambray looks. I, too, never own chambray until last week. I bought mine from Old Navy for approx $25. They had the button down & pullover style w/buttons in plain chambray (in light, medium & dark chambray colors) & with small prints. I plan to wear it with my jeans, leggings & skinnies now and with my cargo shorts & white jeans/slacks in the spring/early summer.

  13. Oh my god, I LOVE chambray. I seriously cannot stop wearing it. And I’m pretty much completely smitten with all of the ways you’ve worn it and the ways you’re thinking about wearing it!. I especially like it with the floral shorts & wedges.
    I just found your link up and I’m so happy to join in! Thanks for hosting it 🙂

  14. Hey, Mama! Thanks for your encouraging comments re: “mommy nausea” on my post! I know I am in good company with this (hopefully) short season of ickiness. I totally cracked up at all your Biebs references! You’re too funny! I never say never when it comes to fashion. I’m glad you found a home in your closet for this great piece. 🙂 ~Sarah

    PS Is there a button for “I Feel Pretty”? I’d love to add it to my “Where I Party” page!

  15. I LOVE a chambray shirt! You have styled it really cute 🙂
