Summer Chambray

8 Aug

I am still in shock over the fact that we are well into August. Although it’s still summer, I can’t help but think that I only have a short time left to wear my summer whites! I live for white jeans in the summer, but also love wearing my white dresses. I’ll admit that I haven’t gotten much use out of my white dresses this summer, and I think part of the reason is that I always style my white dresses the same exact way. The routine usually goes like this: white dress, gold metallic wedges, gold earrings and bracelets. While I love the combination of gold and white, I could never think of a way to breathe new life into my basic white gauzy dress.

Since I never know when I’m going to get cold lately, I decided to turn my dress into a skirt by adding my trusty chambray. I don’t know how I never thought of it before, but I had achieved a new look in a matter of seconds! The minor change also inspired me to switch up my go-to jewelry and shoe routine (baby steps).

    Love it! I’ve been pairing my favorite chambray with a maxi dress recently and I’m loving the versatility!

      Thank you! That sounds like a cute combination! I love how chambray can completely change an entire look.

    Too cute! Love the combination of the dress + the shirt. Your new look is great but I do agree that white and gold look dynamite together 🙂

      Thanks, Grace! White and gold is probably one of my favorite combos!

    this is cute. I own one white dress and now I’m thinking of pairing it with my chambray top. i’ve never worn my chambray top this whole summer. its just been so hot that i couldn’t even bare wearing anything too covered up or heavy. however, since its starting to cool off im sure i can pull this off thannks for the outfit idea 🙂

    I know, where is the summer going?! Love this look on you and I love the idea of having the top for added warmth! This coming from someone else who always seems cold!

    Great outfit! Chambray shirts are so versatile. I love the combination of gold and white too. Kendra Scott makes really pretty white/gold jewelry if you’re looking to add something new to your collection!
