a lovely living

When it comes to closet workhorses, my chambray shirt is definitely in the top 5. Every so often I’ll update my go-to, this one being my current favorite, but overall, a denim shirt is a denim shirt. Just as a good pair of jeans coordinate with a million different outfits, a denim shirt can work just as hard. I took some time to play around with various ways I have worn or plan to wear mine during the fall season. Here’s what I came up with…

Cardigan / Chambray / Pants / Slides

I love this casual yet pulled together look, not to mention the pretty color combination. The shirt and pants bring some structure and the sweater adds some necessary warmth. A blazer and a sleek bootie could easily be swapped here for a more dressed up look.

Jacket (similar) / Chambray / Jeans / Boots (similar)

I’m far from ‘biker chic’ but that’s the first thing that comes to mind here! Cool vibes with the boots, black denim and cropped jacket give off a laid back yet intentional look.

Chambray / Pants / Boots / Scarf (similar)

This lady-like outfit is one I’d wear again and again, especially if I had a reason to dress up regularly! Perfect for a classroom or office, these wide leg pants and suede booties definitely make a statement. A neck scarf adds the perfect accent and gives it a little more personality.

Cardigan / Chambray / Leggings / Slides (similar)

For those with a laid-back lifestyle, leggings are there for you! Spanx leggings are my current favorites and have been for a few years now. They are a little pricy, but the fit and quality are very much worth it in my opinion. I wear the faux leather the most often, but this animal print which is new to me, may end up in a close second. Pair this look with slides or even a solid pair of sneakers and a long cardigan for an easy, on-the-go look.

I hope these looks gave you some refreshing new ideas and a reason to pull out your chambray shirt and put it to work!

    I really appreciated this post! I like the fact that I did not have to buy something to acheive the look because I already have a denim shirt!!
