Chambray Picks

One of my favorite things, besides this fluffy ewok, is a chambray top. It’s one of my closet items that I practically live in. It’s just such a versatile piece that I like to think goes with everything in my closet. I admit to owning 5-6 variations of the chambray top AND I may or may not keep looking at more when I shop.

Today I’m sharing some of my top chambray shirt picks, that are on sale for the holiday weekend. Happy shopping and have a great weekend!

Denim and Black

Brandy Melville high rise distressed denim

I’m taking a page out of Jess’s book and going with a black themed outfit for this post. Kinda funny since she went with a printed maxi dress for yesterday’s post — it’s like we’ve got the role reversed!

I love this recent short shorts find from Brandi Melville. I’m a little wary of showing too much belly when wearing crop tops. Which is why high-waisted shorts are a perfect match for them.

Floral Maxi

Floral Maxi

I found this floral chiffon maxi dress and immediately thought to use it as a swim cover because it buttons in the front. After wearing it to the pool with these denim cut offs, I got the idea for an outfit with booties. I like the flow-y element that the dress brings once you leave the bottom half un buttoned. Makes it a little bit more fun than just wearing it as a maxi.

Do you have any closet items that you like to re-mix into something else?

Major Repeat

These distressed boyfriend jeans have been on major repeat since I first got them. I’ve been dressing them up and down almost every weekend. In general I tend to live in distressed denim, it’s just so comfortable. I am not ashamed to admit that the majority of my shopping budget is spent on jeans… AND it is worth every penny.

What’s your favorite closet must have?

Daniel Silverstain Carnival Sleeveless T-Neck

I love New York City. Sure sometimes I complain about the crazy real estate prices and loud construction noises, but often times I get little reminders about why I love the city that validates my reason to move here. Case in point: last Friday. I was having a pretty tough day at work, still at the office at 5:30pm (by the way, my office has summer Fridays so pretty much everyone is gone by 2pm). I was feeling pretty down on myself when I noticed an email in my inbox letting me know about the Daniel Silverstain sample sale. My immediate thought was: who the f is that? Well after a quick search online, I found that he is very talented designer. I love the clean lines and pseudo-androgyny of his design. Plus they will have champagne at the event, so can’t hurt, right? Well actually it sort of hurt my wallet — the kind that hurts real good. I didn’t quite buy the store, but I did snag myself the carnival sleeveless t-neck (featured on this blog) and the neo-mesh t-shirt. What can I say, nothing fixes Friday working blues like a little retail therapy.

Tank Dress

Lou & Grey tank dress

Happy Monday, hope that everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend! We decided to check out the Stone Arch Bridge Festival at the river front. Which was really fun, and not too crowded due to the rain earlier in the day. They had live music, artist booths, festival food, and a vintage car show. I loved seeing all the local artisan booths and trying food from local restaurants, all while walking along the river front. It’s our first summer here in the twin cities and I’m slowly learning that there are so many fun things going on as long as you are willing to get out and explore.

What did you do this weekend?

Viris Zamara Dress

You know that feeling when you found a piece of clothing in your closet that you love but haven’t worn in awhile. It’s been so long, you almost forgot you have it. And when you come by it, you’re thinking: why don’t I wear this more? It’s the perfect summer dress with bright colors and pattern, and just the right playful length. I also realized that even though I’ve owned this dress for over years, I don’t think it’s ever been featured on the blog. How is that possible? Well now that the I’ve “rediscovered” this dress, it’s is definitely going to be in heavy rotation this season.

Black and Gray

The latest edition to my monotone wardrobe is this black Panama hat. I was super excited to find it because I have been searching for a black hat in my price range for a while. I’m all about wearing hats during the Spring/Summer months because I don’t like to have the sun hit my face (say no to sun spots and wrinkles). Some might say I am a tad obsessed, but I see nothing wrong with being over protective when it comes to your skin.

Does anyone else live in hats?

NYC Tourister

Brandi Melville Distressed Denim Shorts

If you’ve been in a cab in New York recently, you’ve probably seen the See Your City advertisement. Their tagline touts that for visitors, New York City is a vacation of a lifetime; but for the lucky 8 million resident, it’s only a subway ride away. Well I count myself among those lucky 8 million and do sometime think that I don’t see enough of the city. Plus, why let the tourist have all the fun?
Spurred by my brother in law’s visit a few weekends ago, I’ve been doing quite a bit of sight seeing lately. I decided to continue this trend by visiting the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space museum this past Sunday. I can officially say I’ve been been on an aircraft carrier and seen a space shuttle up close — wahoo, that’s two things I can cross off my bucket list.
