Twofer Tuesday: Chambray Shirts and Skinny Pants.

Year 2013 and I as a Woman, as a Fashionista and as a Style Blogger didn't own a Chambray Shirt, (or so I thought - isn't this one Chambray?). Also, around October last year when I was pregnant I bought a longer Linen Chambray-looking button-down Shirt. I purchased it in a Medium and it ran kind of big. I wanted to wear it both while pregnant and after, but I wanted it more loose in purpose. Then, back in May I purchased my first one, though it was more of a Denim one. A Sturdy, Thick, Long, Jean, Button-down Shirt. I thrifted it for 5 bucks, it was originally from Esprit (from this post). Then, when I came to the States, a couple of Chambray Shirts were on my to-buy list. I didn't just want a plain one, a printed one like Polka Dots was on my must-buy list, as well. So, I added 4 more Chambray Shirts: 2 Solid ones (from today's post), a Polka Dot one (from this post). So, now in total I have at least 6 Chambray Shirts, but they are all quite different and each looks unique on its own. Today, I am showing you two of my Solid Chambray Shirts purchased this Fall, in the States. The first one is my recent one that I wanted so bad, the second one you have already seen on the blog. I wore these Outfits a couple of weeks ago when I came back to Tirana (Albania). I didn't have to wear a Sweater or Blazer over them. Fast forward 2 weeks later and the weather is cold enough to layer with Sweaters and even a Jacket or Coat on top, plus a Scarf. Ehhh. Anyway, here is how I styled my 2 Chambray Shirts.

Chambray Pull-over and Skinny Olive Cargo Pants.
This Outfit was so easy, really. It was the first Outfit I wore, after a long 2-day flight and a good night of sleep (or semi-good, since I wake up every time Vivian does). But anyway, I felt put together and urban in this. It was a great Outfit to be back having coffee with my neighbor friends and other moms and greet my other neighbors after being away for 4 months. The Red Boat Shoes added a pop of Color and went well with the Utilitarian vibe of this Outfit. What do you think? Do you like Chambray & Olive together?

Chambray with Acid Jeans and Pops of Turquoise.
In this Outfit I am wearing Denim what appears from head to toe. I purchased these Jeans this past Spring and so far the few Outfits I have created with them, I have liked every single one. The Lighter Colored Chambray works nicely with the Darker Blues and the Whites on the Jeans. The Turquoise Bib Bubble Necklace I am wearing was one of those Necklaces I was looking for, to find and buy, when I came to the States. Suddenly, one day as I was browsing Jewels at Francesca's and there it was. And it was marked down plus all the Jewelry was buy one - get one 50% off. So I purchased 2 Necklaces and was a happy shopper that day. I would love to have it in Bright Yellow, too. The Necklace matches the Headband quite nicely, doesn't it? What do you think of this Outfit? Do you like the Necklace? Do you own one like it?
