{Top: Similar | Pants: Gap | Shoes: ShoeMint | Necklace: c/o ILY Couture}

When I’m in the shop, many times I’m asked how to style a piece that we sell. If it’s a skirt or pants, 9 times out of 10 the words “chambray shirt” will roll off my tongue before I know it. I’m always a little shocked when people don’t already own one or don’t know what I mean. (Explaining ‘chambray’ to the older crowd is always fun — ‘ya know, it’s like that really soft denim material that’s denim but….it’s not.”) Apparently it’s the ultimate shirt for me. Chambray, duh. 

So in case you ever want my styling help, here it is in it’s entirety: red heels, chambray shirts. Life changing advice, isn’t it? 

We are in Vegas* for a retail trade show so I would put together a whole montage of outfits that I’ve worn with this chambray shirt, but you know that would take away from sleeping and gambling. Oh and working. That’s right….that’s why I’m here.

    It's settled. I need to invest in a jean button up shirt. I adore this outfit, by the way. Your influence is making me the most stylish girl in med school. (Not exactly a hard crowd to compete with, but you get my drift.)

  13. Several months ago, I was in a retail store and started chatting with the cashier about fashion. The guy very excited started asking me if I knew what the term was for denim that wasn't denim. I quickly replied, "oh chambray, yeah it's great" and he was all like "no I don't think that's it". And inside I was thinking, yes of course it is, I know this because I read Kendi's blog.

    I was just thinking about how often people probably ask you style questions at Bloom. If I'm honest, I totally plan to do that the next time I'm in the area! I was also recently trying to explain "chambray" to someone – I totally understand the difficulties and I definitely got the crazy eyes from them!

    Absolutely love this outfit. I am also obsessed with chambray. Love the pant color mixed with the leopard and the neutral bag ties everything in nicely.

    You are the best at styling colored jeans! I am totally one of those people who does not own a chambray shirt yet. I have to add it to my list. They're so versatile!

    Chambray shirt is always my answer when I don't know what to pair with a bottom. So versatile.

  128. I find myself doing the same thing at work all the time. The answer is always chambray. I think it's because chambray shirts are quite literally the shirt equivalent of jeans and, as such, they go with everything.

  129. Those pants look killer on you! Love them with the chambray and neutral bag, really helps it all balance. And your hair looks so cute like that! Ditto on the red heels advice. I keep telling my mom she'd be amazed how many outfits red shoes go with when you really try. ūüėČ

    I wore a very similar outfit a few days ago.  I would wear colored pants and a chambray button down everyday if I could get away with it.

    My husband and I stayed at the Cosmopolitan in Vegas a few months back, and if you're not staying there, you should DEFINITELY find time to wander over there and check it out! It has The Chandelier (supposedly the world's largest chandelier) and basically all of my now-favorite restaurants in the world. The sushi place (blue ribbon? Blue fish? Blue something) was completely life-changing, and if you just have time for lunch, go get a burger and a (barely) alcoholic shake (or non-alcoholic, either way they are amazing) at Holstein's. Hope you have a great time there!

    And, you know, get some work done or whatever.   : P

    I commiserate completely! ¬†I work in a consignment shop, and yesterday, a rather stylish woman–she already had a great outfit on–was trying to figure out how to style a printed brown a-line skirt. ¬†Immediately I told her to get a chambray shirt, and I used a description just like yours! ¬†She gave me the weirdest look with an "okay…" ¬†I didn't want to be seen as crazy, so I found one in store and showed it to her, and her eyes lit up with understanding and, dare I say, renewed respect?

    What a fun color combo! Mentally banking this one to use soon! And yes, I've told people "just pair it with a chambray shirt" too many times to count lately!
