Trend Spin Linkup Week 4 - Chambray




Madewell Chambray (save) // Old Navy Gingham Shorts // Hobo International Bag c/o // Gap Leopard Flats (save, splurge) // Anthropologie Sunglasses // Stella & Dot Necklace // Stella & Dot Bracelets // Nixon Watch (save, splurge) // Apple of My Eye Spike Bracelets c/o

After our action packed weekend I was exhausted when I got home from work last night.  We ordered some sandwiches from the local deli and watched True Blood, my kind of night.  I love nights like that, and this is the perfect outfit to wear for a night in.  As you can probably tell, this second picture was taken about the time that the bottom fell out and it started pouring down.  My naturally wavy hair and rain do not mix!  So here is your blooper photo.  = )  I have just recently started mixing prints with my favorite being florals and stripes as you've probably noticed, but I also really like gingham with my leopard flats.  I'm seeing a lot of leopard print mixing in my future (in case your reading Shane, that means I would like the Clare Vivier leo clutch for my birthday.)  Please and thank you.
 
Thank you so much for stopping by the third Trend Spin Linkup with The Fashion Canvas and myself!   Today's trend is chambray.  Show us how you wear it - a chambray shirt, skirt or pair of shorts.  It doesn't matter what clothing item it is or where it's from; we'd love to see it.  Here are our top 2 floral looks from last week.

Beautiful! Here's to tying a knot in our chambrays! Easy way to make a top summery :) I love the pattern mix up your shorts and the cheetah print shoes.

So glad I'm back in the blogging world and able to check out your new series! Looks like I'll need to be taking a chambray picture this week :) I'm impressed you still look so happy even when it started pouring. Not sure I'd be able to have the same reaction...
