the chambray skirt

crisp white + chambray.

chambray is one of the softest pieces of clothing! it's like denim, but way more toned down in terms of texture and feel. that's why it's acceptable to wear denim and chambray together. but i digress. this chambray skirt comes from a boutique in NYC @LILLAP -- specializing in casual, effortless style. as much as i love to dress up, i do love to mix in some good casual styles. this chambray skirt is in a crosshatch texture making it a tad more unique than others i've seen. it's also a PULL ON STYLE! haha. yes, please. and it has pockets. it pairs perfectly with any tucked in or knotted summery top. one of my current favorite LILLA P pieces is this white one with a lil peplum hem, so pretty, perfect for some beach vacay.

and lastly, if you don't already know, i'm a HUGE @henribendel fan. i think i own about five Henri Bendel bags at this point... yikes. thanks (i think) to my blogger babe Michele, @classicandgray who made me jump on this bandwagon. high quality bags at great price points. this is my first hobo bag, it's got this huge statement tassel on it which i've come to love, its very roomy, and i love the neutral color (also comes in black) and the soft pebbled leather! my current picks for HB if you're looking into the brand: the warren street chain shoulder bag (i actually own it in white..) and the west 57th carryall

PSSTT... i have some pretty exciting news to share but more next week!! thanks again for stopping by!! xx

when Steven tells me to do my thing. :D

denim x chambray

i've wanted to do denim x denim/chambray look for a while, so took advantage of the wacky TX weather for this shoot. the main thing when wearing this combo is to opt for either a lighter or darker wash from your jeans. after that add some fun to your outfit with either prints or pops of color. i took this opportunity to pull out my leopard print heels and layered some jewelry! i've been loving my rocksbox subscription and rocked two pieces from my first box below. review coming soon, but get your first month for FREE using code "jannadoanxoxo"

other mention-ables about this outfit:

  • it's all about the half-tuck.
  • i can now join the pompom crew; yea yea!
  • this tote (bday gift) is so AWESOME! it's reversible, magnetic closure, comes with a pouch, laptop bag, and detatchable crossbody strap!!! seriously, the coolest thing lately.
  • these sunglasses are heavy in rotation from my subscription. it's like, "netflix for your face." rent-able designer sunglasses. so genius. i am purchasing them to keep! do you have any recs on what i should rent next? use code "JANNADOANXOXO" to receive your first month for free!

rock the denim x denim,

white linen & chambray

i'm sneaking in as many opportunities to wear summer clothes. after all, i live in Texas. it is still pretty hot for mid-October. and i'm wearing white... after labor day. (fist bump!)

when shopping for chambray, it comes in many hues (ranging from light/medium/dark) and fabric weight (light and flowy to heavy). this lighter colored chambray pairs perfectly with a similarly breezy linen skirt. although i associate chambray as more of a spring/summer item, i believe it can be worn year around. in the spring/summer i would pair it with skirts (as shown here), and colored pants or chino shorts. in the fall/winder i would pair it with leggings. lastly, denim on denim is welcome year around! so go on and get chu a chambray shirt!

onto the next... this Foley & Corinna bag gets many many compliments. mainly because of it's color. i'm glad my friend urged me to get it. i love this bag, let me count the ways: it's bold/vibrant. it's pretty. it goes with everything. it's four season friendly. it can be worn numerous ways... (blogging cap on.. maybe i should do a post on it!?)
