Chambray, oh Chambray, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Bad poetry puns aside, I seriously love chambray and think a good chambray top can be one of the most versatile in your closet. During January and the Style My Closet Challenge, I truly realized how easy it is to wear chambray with just about anything. You can layer it, you can wear it on it’s own, you can dress it up with a skirt and heels or down with leggings.

On our first afternoon in Amelia Island, it was a bit breezyย so I threw my chambray top on over an easy striped dress and knotted it up for a casual, but cute look. This was perfect for a windy beach walk and an afternoon cocktailย (more from our trip here!). I loved the way the chambray and stripe look turned out- and was so excited to find yet another way to wear my most versatile top!

Are you as much of a chambray fan as I am? What’s your favorite way to style your chambray top?

xoxo, Jenna

      Thanks Morgan! I linked it above- it is by Laqa & Co and called Toots! I got it in my Birchbox a while ago and loved it. I have only been able to find the shade via Birchbox,but it is so fun for spring and summer! xoxo!

    I was wondering the same thing. It looked like a shade I’d contemplated by MAC. Love the stripped dress and Chambray – well yeah, it goes will everything! ๐Ÿ™‚

        This may be similar MAC
        CANDY YUM-YUM Neon pink [Matte] – think this the the one I agonized over, but since we were going into fall when with their Sweetie – bright but a little more subtle. (Wanted to share in case you run out of the other. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    I love chambray! Pretty sure you can never have enough. Or at least that is what I tell myself when I find another chambray top that I MUST have! I love wearing my chambray with white jeans and with leggings, and over dresses, and pretty much with everything. Even joggers. I have a problem. You look gorgeous as always, and this look is totally beach perfect!

      Thanks Ariel! It does go with literally everything! Its funny how many variations of chambray tops there are out there, but I some how need them all ๐Ÿ™‚
      xoxo!

    Such a fan of chambray! Just shot a denim on denim look with one! You can never go wrong. I’ll also tie it around my waist for an edgier look at times. Love this!

      Can’t wait to see your look, Donna! Love the idea of tying it around your waist too- so cool! Happy Friday!
