Red Denim + Chambray

The Red Denim Diaries – Part Two

The Red Denim Diaries is a special series of posts featuring the piece of clothing I’m living in this fall, my new red jeans.  This is the second post in this four part series.  You can also see how I styled them with an orange tee, brown cardi and floral scarf here.

Can you believe my husband picked out this whole look for my birthday by himself?  Well, actually he texted pictures to my thirteen year-old daughter for opinions while he was shopping but for the most part he did it on his own.  How awesome is that???

 [Chambray shirt:  H&M, Scarf:  Marshall’s, Jeans:  Joe’s Jeans at Nordstrom, Earrings:  Target]

This shirt is great, I’m wearing it with everything.  I love how chambray looks next to red and the scarf really pulls the whole look together.

It’s Your Turn:  How are you wearing chambray this fall?  Tell me in the comments!

  • Chambray/denim tops are one of the most versatile pieces in my closet. Every woman should own one! Pairing chambray with red denim is my favorite way to style it. Cute look! Heather

    If I was going to buy a pair of colored jeans, red would of not been on the top of my list. But after seeing your outfit, I would definitely get a pair of red jeans. Love them!

      That’s exactly how I was thinking. If I wanted a new pair of jeans, they would be another pair of dark wash, not red. Thank goodness my hubby thought outside of the box. 🙂

  • You look adorable, and I can tell you that if my husband picked out an outfit for me it would be sweatpants and a baseball jersey. No thank you. Your husband is gifted for sure!

    • PrettyOn

      Aww, thanks and LOL at the sweatpants and baseball jersey!

  • Love how red and chambray pair together as well. Group husband did a great job!

      Thanks so much Liz!

  • Wow, that shirt is great! And red is my most favourite colour, so I definitely love your jeans! I really like the way, as you say, your scarf pulls the look together. So impressed with your husband’s clothes picking skills! Mine would just flat out refuse…

      Thanks Jess!

  • I love those jeans and the scarf! I have jeans in a similar color but haven’t figured out how to transition them for fall yet – you did a great job here!

    Great look!
    As for how I am wearing chambray this fall? With everything! I love it layered under sweaters, especially striped ones! It is still not cold enough for much layering here, but I can’t wait to try it out! 🙂

  • You look fantastic but how is it you could have a teenager?? You look so young and gorgeous. :o)
    Love the layering and the earrings you have chosen too. Go the hubby! Thanks for joining in with Wardrobe Weds
