The Closet Essentials: Chambray

 I am so excited to share with you guys a collaboration I did with Emma of Inspire & Instyle. Emma and I connected over Instagram and then later found out we grew up not too far away from each other in Southern Orange County. It is crazy the connections you can make (and otherwise wouldn’t) by joining the blogging community. She has the cutest little family and the best fashion & beauty tips so be sure to check out her blog here!

Emma has put together a reoccurring series on her blog entitled “The Closet Essentials” and invited me to participate. She has previously styled a little black dress & pencil skirt. This time,  we thought it would be fun to style a chambray top two different ways to show the versatility of the piece.


I chose to dress my chambray up by pairing it with a midi skirt, wedges and a bold necklace. This skirt is one of my favorites because of the way it moves. I was trying to reflect that in my pictures below but I don’t think photos do it justice. I am also loving the monochromatic outfit trend.

      I know right? It literally can be worn in any circumstance. I think I am going to buy another lighter colored one for summer. Thanks for reading!
