Try the Trend: Chambray

Chambray is a huge trend lately...in shirts, jackets and even vests!  It is definitely making a comeback.  I grew up wearing, what we called, "levi shirts" in the 90s, and now they are coming back! (actually, denim and chambray are a little different, but they look the same to me!)  I remember trying to match my denim shirt with my jeans as perfectly as I could...well thank goodness that is not the trend anymore!  I was looking for a picture of me in all my denim goodness, but couldn't find one...but I did come across this little gem...

Look how cute my mom is in her "levi shirt".  This is my family around, like 1993?  Love how fashion just recycles the same looks, with just a few tweaks!

I love how versatile they are.  You can wear one with practically anything...dress it up or down, colored jeans or printed.   Just don't try and match the colors to your pants like I used to!

Here are some other chambray items that I'm loving:

See how the different shades work well with this look?  I love this top, it has little metal tips on the collar. So cute!!

This little girl chambray dress is adorable

I love how this top has 2 trends in one...floral and chambray!

Another fun top with part chiffon, part chambray

You can never go wrong with a denim jacket.  I still have one from 10 years ago!  This is one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe, in my opinion.  Pair it with anything, and it will always work!
