Well, welcome to my world! I have two awesome denim shirts, one is more of a western style, dirty denim, and the other is just a classic chambray button down. I work in a business casual office, which means I can totally rock these shirts during office hours. Lately, I’ve been trying to be a little bit more polished, and trying to get my wardrobe put together so I don’t wear the same thing every week. And that is where I run into the problem of how I can implement this shirts into my daily attire with out looking ‘under dressed’.
That’s where my best friend and yours Pinterest comes into play. I love when people post what they wore, or give you ideas on how to style an outfit. I’m not super creative when it comes to that stuff (other things – heck yes, but clothes not so much). I also have this weird planning issue so I figured that Pinterest could totally help me get a plan for this month on what to wear – or more than likely, the entire year.
So, let’s be honest. I’m a pinterest junkie and I found a bunch of different ways to wear my little chambray shirts that for the most part are different from each other. And my simple math said 2 shirts each worn once a month is only 24 outfits. Yay! Which means I can now wear both of them once a month and not look the same each time.
I know you might be asking, how would I remember what I’ve done and haven’t done? Well, that is part of my obsession with being organized. Maybe some of you don’t care if you wear the same thing twice or not (before this job, I didn’t either). I do feel like it helps with my creativity, and keeps the days from becoming monotonous. With that said, I’m going to let you in on a huge secret…..STYLEBOOK!
This app is amazing. I’ve had it for a few years and have never done anything with it. This winter I finally took the time to add or photograph my clothes into the app, and now I can put together outfits, create a calendar, and even shop. It does tons more than that, but those are the top 3 features I love.
Okay, I digress. I did all this work to find a set of outfits that I love, and can totally manage to pull off and I want to share them with you.
I hope you like them, or find something of value to you. Let me know – what’s your favorite way to wear a chambray shirt??
From Fenzy Me. A little more casual than some of the others, but I could totally pull this off at my work. Remember when they used to say don’t mix brown with black? I love that the rules have been changed!!
From Nusophisticate.com. I would have never thought about wearing it with a pencil skirt, but man do I love the look of this. Bonus, I’m pretty sure it would hide that ‘pouch’ that shows in the skirt.
From Love Lipstick and Pearls. This says ‘vacation’ but is totally also office appropriate. If I didn’t truly love our casual jean Fridays, I would try to wear this all the time before a long weekend.
