How We Style It: Chambray Shirt

Jenna Lyons- we pray in the direction of her Park Slope apartment 5 times a day.
A chambray shirt is one of those staple items every girl should have in her closet.  I've recently found myself feeling a little uninspired by mine, and end up not wearing it.  Since two (blonde) heads are better than one, Julia and I challenged ourselves to style three outfits each to help pull Ol' Mama out of her chambray rut. 

I think it's so interesting that we basically have the same wardrobe (spirit animals, duh), but we style the same item using basically the same inputs in such different ways.

  1. omg, y'all are too precious in chambray!!!! love all of the looks! i have a chambray from express that is now stained with pink pen, so i'll promptly be replacing it. they're so comfy and i love how versatile they are to wear. I've been wearing mine with bright pants, tucked in only in the front. i also wore mine with a turban once, cus why not??


    1. i am a big fan of the front-tuck too! i feel so much cooler than an untuck or even a full tuck lol. and i love the turban look. you looked so glam in it!

  2. I've had a chambray shirt on my 'to-buy' list for so long but keep pushing it to the end because I never find on I like, and I wasnt sure how to style it. Thanks for sharing! Now it'll be at the top of the list!

    Don't forget to check out The Life of Clare for an earring giveaway.

  3. Old Navy has the cutest chambray shirts! Waiting for them to go on sale!

  4. Love this post! I've always been hesitant to wear a chambray shirt with jeans for fear of the "denim tuxedo" look but you make it look so cute!

    Love your blog ladies!!!

  5. Hey ladies! I recently bought my first chambray shirt and came across your blog while doing a "styling chambray" image search ... love this blog and these are fabulous ideas!
