To Chambray or Not to Chambray

That certainly is the question....
Multiple times in my life I've seen someone flaunting a Canadian Tuxedo (no offense to my Canadian audience) and I've shivered at the thought of wearing a denim shirt- it's really not for everyone, but the trend is back, so instead of avoiding it, I am going to embrace it.  I put together this spring/summer look based around the Chambray shirt.  I think I made it work, but like I said, it's not for everyone.  In order to pull off a denim shirt, you must make it look stylish, chic, classic - not frumpy or careless... and for God's sake please pair it with something other than a denim bottom.  Check out the look I put together below - see how effortless it looks, but how put together it comes off.  I would wear this outfit in a heartbeat... with my hair pulled back in a cute chignon ... sure, there's not a lot of color in this outfit, but that's what makes it work, the no fuss simplicity of it all.

  3. The shoes are gorgeous. I'm still not sure I could pull this entire look off, but I like a lot of the pieces that you used to put it together.
