Daily Threads: Hooray for Chambray

{Top&Belt : Target | Skirt : F21 | Boots : Steve Madden}

A chambray shirt was not on my "list", but I'd been eye-ballin' one for a while and finally broke down to get it. I have the smallest size available, but I still feel like it's a bit loose, but I'm dealing. I'm hoping a ride through the washer and dryer might shrink him down. We'll see. I've decided I love love love the idea of a chambray shirt. It's the unique neutral and it's perfect for being topped off by an interesting bottom and pearls (not pictured). I'm looking forward to remixing this bad boy!

I started packing today. I should have started a couple days ago, but I hate packing. So I do it at the last minute. The one positive thing I can say is that I have totally used my newly acquired remixing skills to help me pack! I found myself grabbing tops and bottoms and coming up with several looks between them rather than trying to rack my brain for a set amount of outfits for the vacay. Now, if only I could learn to downsize the amount of pieces packed. Baby steps.

You'll get a lot of use out of the chambray shirt, but it's the skirt I'm liking here. Happy packing.

I think I really need to actually follow a list when I go shopping. Your chambray shirt is cute - and I love it with the mini. Super cute!

Awesome top. I actually have had a chambray blouse on my list for quite a while, I just haven't found the right one.

Linley! I am in love with this chambray top. I totally went to Target today looking for it but I didn't see it anywhere. :( But I guess it's okay because I suck at ironing and I probably shouldn't buy clothes that require ironing.

Anyway, I was reading Kendi's post just now and saw that you had commented that you got the same blazer at Target, and I DID TOO! I just picked it up today and I can't wait to see how you style yours! :)

LOVE your cowboy boots. I would wear mine everyday if they didn't take an hour to get off. :)

Totally in love with those boots. And I know what you mean about the chambray shirt - its SUCH a great staple! Lookin good girl :)

ah, the chambray shirt with that amazing skirt is great.

Oh packing how I also hate it. The remixing does help the packing experience ever so slightly! Made me thing of actual outfits instead of just throwing whatever in a suitcase. Enjoy NC!

New chambray shirt looks amazing! I've wanted to get one for awhile, hopefully in a thrift store, so I'm still on the hunt..
