Spring Outfit Formula: Chambray + Striped Dress

Ahh the chambray shirt.  In the spring, there’s quite possibly not another item in my closet that I reach for more.  It’s perfect with white jeans, printed jeans and of course as a top layer over tees, tanks and even dresses.

Last week, I showed you how to pair a chambray shirt with a floral skirt and this week, we’ll be layering it over a striped dress.

The best illustration of how cute and versatile this look can be is to take a look at how the Spring GYPO Style Challengers styled it this past week.  This look is equally as cute when a denim jacket is substituted for the chambray shirt.

This was the last live week of outfits for the Spring 2015 GYPO Style Challenge.  It was most definitely our best challenge yet.  I’ve got a special shout out to two challengers who were new to the challenge this time around and kept us thoroughly entertained throughout.  Jennifer and Laura are co-workers and friends from Minnesota that kept us laughing with their OOTD photos.

Here’s just one example of some of the fun they got into – messing with ‘Squatch.





Thanks so much girls for your hilarious creativity throughout this challenge!

If you want to join in the fun, there’s still plenty of spring left! The girls in the Spring 2015 GYPO Style Challenge Facebook group plan to start the challenge over again next week.  They will be styling outfits from this challenge and the 2014 challenge until the summer challenge starts.  Learn more and sign up HERE.
