I don’t know if any of you are like me, but in the first few weeks after I bought my first chambray shirt I felt . . . intimidated. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to style my new shirt. Of course my first inclination was to throw it–like I do with everything!–with a pair of jeans. But chambray and denim? The thought scared me to pieces. I started to regret the purchase. I felt like a total hack.
I am happy to report that I have since figured out my chambray. Phew! What helped was combing the Internet for chambray inspirations. I have been on a perpetual hunt for “chambray and” combinations, and I daresay I’ve found a few! I’m sharing them with you after the jump, in a slideshow I’m calling “Chambray And Dot Dot Dot.” It was terribly fun to put together. Hope you enjoy it!
