SAHMonday: Chambray, White Jeans and Colorful Sandals

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – weekly outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet.  If you don’t have my exact pieces, that’s ok.  Just use one of the substitutions that I recommend.

Chambray Shirt, White Jeans and Colorful Sandals

So here’s an easy outfit I’m betting you can mostly pull from your closet!  It’s just right for those spring days that aren’t too hot or too cold.

Just pair up two basics – a denim shirt and white jeans (I just added this distressed frayed hem pair to my collection), then throw in some color and pattern to add interest like these pom pom sandals and a floral wrist scarf.

Denim Shirt + White Jeans + Colorful Sandals


Funny story about these new white jeans, when I sat down to take this picture, my husband said “Um, you have a hole in your jeans.”  I laughed and said “yep, that’s kind of the point!”  This is my first pair of distressed jeans and I really like them. They’re super soft and not see through!  If you decide to try them for yourself, order down a size, they run big.  Also they’re advertised as a cropped jean but I’m 5’4″ and they aren’t really cropped on me.

    I didn’t have the chance to comment on your post last week. There are so many fabulous fashion bloggers – including you. But I have followed you for years because I have always felt a connection with you. I remember your son’s senior year playing ball, your girls cheer and horse competitions, redecorating your home, etc. I have enjoyed watching your family grow and change just as much as I have enjoyed your style posts. So I am happy you will be continuing your personal connection with your readers! OK – so this outfit is so totally me!! I love it! And this jewelry company is in Ohio! It is a fabulous line!! Thanks for the fun today. Enjoy your week! Susan

    • Hi Susan! Aw, I think this is going to make me cry! You’ve been around since almost day one and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. We’ve both done life together. I’ve enjoyed watching your little girl grow into a young woman and such a talented dancer too! Yes, the connection is really what it’s all about. Thanks for taking the time to stop by! xoxo

    I absolutely love the detail on your denim shirt, but your link to the same one brings me to a completely different shirt?! Help!!!

    • Hi Carolyn! It’s the same shirt but a darker wash. I’m not sure why they don’t carry the lighter wash anymore. Check out some of the links in my substitutions! There are some lighter wash options there. Hope that helps!

      • Carolyn Yeazel

        Hmmmm…the pockets and the buttons on the pockets and all that are totally different?

  • LOL! Yes, sizing down is nice. 🙂 You’re right, I steered clear of distressed for the same reasons but these do feel tasteful and age appropriate! They’re very soft and comfy too. I think you’d love them!

  • Jen

    Those sandals are adorable! How are they to walk in? Do the little pom poms bother your toes?

    • Marla Walkup

      I was wondering the same thing! Super cute!!

    • Thank you! They are great to walk in so far. I haven’t worn them out for a full day of shopping or anything but so far, so good! I don’t even notice the pom poms.

  • Char

    Is having an instagram account the only way to enter?

  • loving the sandals!!!

  • The denim shirt is just perfect with any outfit any time of year! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Love the classic look and the colorful sandals are absolutely perfect!!

    Very nice, might try the scarf round my wrist bracelet, looks chic. x Jacqui

  • The denim shirt looks great with the white jeans. I love those pom pom sandals, and the scarf tied around your wrist looks fab!
