chambray

Blue Moon

This Kardashian Kollection for Sears denim skirt was a great way to start off my week. So far I’ve had a really good experience with the collection especially since you never know what to expect when purchasing online.

Denim on denim, in my case chambray on denim (there is a difference) is a trend that involves pairing two different colors of denim (or the same) or chambray paired with denim, some people may call it the Canadian Tuxedo. Chambray is much lighter with a noticeably criss-cross weave (basic technique), where denim is weaved diagonally giving it a thicker and heavier feel. They both come in different shades of blue and are both made out of cotton.  I usually go for shades not too distant from each other when paired together; I like to be able to have a few choices for accessorizing.  I’ve always liked mixing denim (and chambray), it’s definitely a trend worth giving a try. I paired my blue look with a vintage gold necklace from Alexis Bittar and my ShoeMint grey suede pumps. Nothing more, nothing less.

Are you feeling this trend?

April Showers Bring May…

Which is your favorite April look? What would you like to see more of in May?

A Walk in the Park

Putting together a girly outfit for me is like a walk in the park. I love wearing skirts and dresses that accentuate my waist line. To further accentuate the girly-ness of this look, I topped it off with a pink coat. I normally don’t wear pink, but I wanted to warm up to the color, as pastels are on trend for Spring. Although I purchased this coat in the fall, it is one of those transition pieces that you should always have in your closet.

Are you a girly girl? Do you like to dress pretty in pink?
