Chambray and Sneakers

Lately I’ve been living in sneaks. And as I’m putting my run-out-the-door outfits together, I’ve realized that sneakers and chambray make a very, very good pair. (See Friday’s post for more proof. Or you know, just probably look down at your outfit of chambray and sneaks and realize you’re a genius.) But I’ve mind my way into the world of chambray dresses. Oh yes. At first we were thankful for the invention of the chambray shirt. And now there is a version that you don’t have to wear with pants. Can I get an amen?
 Say hello to the chambray dress. No pants required, sneaks preferred.
