Frilling Ways to Chambray: Monochromatic Hues


Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Last week we started a frilling new series highlighting the many different ways to style a chambray top. I debuted the series with a classic, sophisticated look. This week I layered my chambray with J. Crew’s Tippi sweater and I also purposely created a monochromatic palette of blues.

Check out the details:

A popped collar. People have mixed opinions on the popped collar. I say that sometimes it can work.

A chunky ring and another deliciously gaudy bauble around my neck. Blues on blues on blues.

Layered polka dots to add some FRILLS. I love the layers of blues AND the layers of polka dots. I pretty much love anything that takes extra thought and care.

How do you style your chambray?

Monochromatic FRILLS me


Happy August EBEW every one! This month’s theme is monochromatic which is a total breeze for me because I’ve been layering color on color nonstop as of late (like here, here, and here). This particular outfit had actually been hanging in the front of my closet for a week (I had planned on wearing it to a conference, but got sick instead). I love the drapey look, and yes – it is as comfortable as it appears to be!

Check out the deets: Italian glass necklace that my in-laws brought home to me after a trip they took overseas a few years ago, my go-to gold bangles+a blue J CREW addition, and blue nails (just for extra FRILLS).

What about you? Will you EBEW?
