Reverse 30x30: Chambray Shirt

I needed to introduce this chambray shirt into my closet after months and months of not wearing it (cue your wild gasps at my blasphemy.) 

I had it picked out to wear with a skirt, but it's the freakin' weekend and it's raining, which means I want pants. 

I'm not sure how well the boots and bun will go over in the dressing room (headed to the sartorial kingdom, my friends), but I'm a woman on the edge. I might return water logged and unkempt, so I bring you these pictures in advance. 

Cardigan: Old Navy (Inge, Brynn, and I need to wear our matching ones on the same day!)
Pants: Old Navy
Boots: Steve Madden Barton boot (I hunted down this color on eBay. They have the red, exposed zipper in the back. These boots are bringing sexy to their backs.) 
Shirt: Rock and Republic via Kohl's 


  1. I like this casual, comfy shopping trip outfit on ya. I will tell you though, shopping with a bun ALWAYS fails for me. I end up with a crazy mess on top my head. Let me know how it goes for you. haha

  2. Cute look, perfect for the weekend! I feel like I haven't worn my chambray in awhile either, but I included in the 30x30 challenge I just started so it'll probably get a lot more use over the next month. :)

  3. We dooooooo! We just need to be better planners about it. I like to wear my cardigan with a chambray too. And boots in the dressing room is kinda the worst. I'm such a poor planner about it, and I'm usually wearing boot socks too, what a pain.

  4. I looove this outfit, Danielle! Yep, I am going to need to pin it so that I can recreate it! And you're absolutely right - you, Inge, and I should all wear our same cardigan at the same time!! I love that you hunted those boots down on eBay, too. I remember when they first came out, I was utterly obsessed with them and wanted them desperately. Who am I kidding, though? I STILL want them! Perhaps I'll have to check out and see if they have any in my size!!

  5. See I still haven't jumped on the chambray bandwagon. It looks so cute when you or other bloggers wear it, I just haven't needed one myself yet. I bought a short sleeve one from Danielle above but not a long sleeve. I just don't know how much I'll wear it. I'll keep an eye out when thrifting this weekend. The goodwills in my neighborhood are having every article of clothing for $2. $2!!! I need to make a list so I go in with a purpose.

    It's so hard to know what to do with your hair when trying on clothes because mine is so long that wearing it down just makes it get so messed up and tangled. Maybe a messy bun I'd have to keep redoing... The problems of shopping haha
