3 Ways to Style…a Chambray Shirt

When I asked my sister what she thought was a difficult piece of clothing to style, I didn’t expect her to say a chambray shirt. To me, a chambray shirt is a go-to piece; it’s what I grab when I’m in a rush and want to keep my look polished but casual. But when I thought about it, I initially avoided buying a chambray shirt for a while, because, like my sister, I wasn’t exactly clear on how to style it. Can you wear it with jeans? How about a skirt? Below are three easy ways to incorporate a chambray shirt into your wardrobe. I bought mine at JCPenney for $19…so it’s worth the small investment for sure!

3 Ways to Style…a Maxi Skirt

If you’re like me, you bought a maxi skirt last season…when they were finally on sale. The good news? You’ll still see lots of maxi dresses and skirts around this spring too. The bad news? Maxi skirts are still just as hard to style as they were last year. My biggest trouble is figuring out the proper shoes, but I think my best bet is a espadrille wedge, a Capri sandal, or a classic pair of flats. Add in a touch of tribal patterns, and who would ever guess you had  trouble styling that skirt?

A Week of Inspired Outfits: Friday

Well I did it! I eliminated five decisions each workday by creating five unique looks on Sunday. These outfits were inspired by some of my favorite brands, including Free People, Lands’ End Canvas, and j.crew. Below is Friday’s look. Like Wednesday, the Free People outfit served as more of an inspiration than a hard and fast guide, and I tried instead to capture the feel of the look.

Check out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for more inspired outfits.

Free People

Jean Jacket, H&M

Top, Target

Jeans, American Eagle

Wedges, Lands’ End Canvas

For full disclosure and all of that good stuff, I currently work at Lands’ End (so it should be no surprise that I often end up wearing their merchandise!).

4 Unique & Easy Ways to Style a Classic Oxford Shirt

I ran across this post by Refinery 29 and loved the concept of unique outfits based on one classic shirt. However, I didn’t feel like going out and spending money on these looks, as great as they were. Instead, I decided to create four unique looks based on a classic white Oxford shirt…using only items from my closet. All outfits are appropriate for my work place (which is admittedly very casual). It’s a fresh way to approach my closet without spending more money. I can’t wait to try them out!


Inspired by…Venice, Italy

I spent four months living in Italy and visited Venice on a couple occasions. I put together a collection inspired by Venice’s architecture and culture…from the handmade lace on Burano to the glass on Murano to the charming buildings and canals.
