chambray shirt and white denim

let’s ease into spring with a chambray shirt and white denim. both are wardrobe staples that work any time of year. but when it’s time to transition between seasons these two items work overtime. why? it’s elementary: the color palette. 

a chambray shirt is a must-have in your closet. it’s a versatile item with many price points from opens in a new windowOld Navy to opens in a new windowJ.Crew to opens in a new windowRalph Lauren. and there are so many renditions of this wardrobe favorite like a opens in a new windowruffleneck or a opens in a new windowtie-neck, opens in a new windowlong sleeve, or opens in a new windowshort. alternate ways to wear this simple shirt? pair it with jeans for a Canadian tuxedo. wear it with colored jeans or chinos. my favorite color besides white? green or black. another favorite combo this time of year is a chambray shirt popped over a tee and blue jeans or open over a dress. today, i’m sharing two ways to wear a chambray shirt and white denim by simply exchanging shoes and handbags.

first up is an outfit with a laid-back ‘tude perfect for the weekend or running errands. it starts with a opens in a new windowchambray button-down (size 8) and opens in a new windowwhite denim (size 29) both from opens in a new windowJ.Crew. a opens in a new windowgrandpa cardigan from opens in a new windowBanana Republic in a neutral color adds warmth and texture. opens in a new window leather and suede sneakers from opens in a new windowMadewell pull the color scheme and outfit together. but a brown leather tote ( opens in a new windowsimilar here) is the perfect handbag for a day of shopping.

    I would love to be able to save a picture but I can only save a link. I have files of my favorite outfits from bloggers so I can copy the look later. Yours is the only one that only allows a link. Why is that?

    • not certain how you are saving the photo. when i go to mobile if i click on the photo it lets me save it to my camera. on my computer, if i click the photo it also lets me save it or you can pin it to Pinterest.

    Love chambray and white, especially with red or navy accents. Love the “grandpa” cardigan. I have 3 Walmart Time & Tru “Boyfriend” cardigans that look quite similar and are very inexpensive. (FYI They run quite large.) P.S. The darling blue faux leather moto jacket from WM is ADORABLE and such a dreamy shade of blue. I’m thrilled! Wish it also came in pink.
