Chambray & Chevron

After seeing an outfit that Aimee wore during her Fourth of July holiday vacation, I was instantly inspired. I love chambray shirts, and I love maxi skirts – so why have I never thought to pair the two together? Even more so, how come I’ve never tied my chambray shirt into a knot at my waist? This was life-changing to me. It adds a summer vibe to any outfit, and it helps define my waist and *ahem*, minimize my hips.

Whenever I want to keep my jewelry simple, I typically opt for one statement piece. The rediscovery of these hoops in my jewelry box was an exciting moment since they combine my forever-love of wishbones and current obsession with gold. I think we all need to carry around a little reminder when we can to keep wishing and dreaming big.

  • I need to invest in a good chambray top! This is such a cute outfit and I'm sure you can wear both pieces with so many things!

  • Thank YOU for the inspiration. 🙂

  • Thanks, girl! When I saw that this maxi skirt had a chevron on it, I knew it had to be mine. 🙂

  • Thanks, doll! xo

  • Thank you! I really need to remember to wear those earrings more often. xo

  • Absolutely – I've also worn this maxi skirt with a plain white tank and my jean jacket. I just love how casual and effortless both styles are!

  • Love this outfit! My chambray top is probably my most worn piece of clothing in my closet — I have to consciously remind myself I can't wear it every single day, ha!

    This is so darling! I go through phases with my chambray. It's always in heavy rotation in the fall and spring though.

  • Right?! I'm the same way!

  • I agree – since the weather has been a bit cooler here in Wisconsin, I've been able to wear it more regularly.

  • LOVE! So cute on you, and great maxi skirt! Can't go wrong with the black and white, thanks for sharing!
