Chambray and Sequins: Trend Spin Link-Up



This weeks trend on the Trend Spin Link-Up is chambray! Chambray is such an important closet staple, but we have all seen it a million times paired with mint denim and a camel bag. While there is certainly nothing wrong with the baiscs, I took this chambray project as a challenge to change the way I wore my one of my favorite shirts. After all, fashion is about having fun ... the rules are...there are no rules.

 I took this navy sequin dress into daytime by pairing it with the ever versatile chambray button down (layered with my trusty gingham). With navy being a neutral, I added the pop of red in my bag and pointed patent flats. Though this layered look is certainly creative, it remains classic thanks to the Americana colors and preppy pieces. Make sure to go over to Walking in Memphis in High Heels and The Fashion Canvas to see how other bloggers styled chambray! Thank you for reading, and have a great week.
