Short-Sleeve Chambray Blouse over Floral Dress.

On my Summer must-buy list for this year, was a Short-Sleeve Chambray Shirt. I found one that I fell in love with because the material was very light, the wash was the perfect blue and the style was different (faux wrap with kimono sleeves and chevron embroidery around the neckline) and I ended up buying it, full price and all (it was $19.00 so I think I did OK). I still want a Classic Button-down Short-sleeve Chambray, a Classic Sleeveless Button-down Chambray and one in a Floral Print (white flowers) but those have to wait for next year. Summer will be over soon and I got a Cute Summery option for now that can be worn through Fall, as well. I linked 3 similar, gorgeous options of Chambray Shirts similar to mine (below the pictures). For my first time, on my day-to-day basis, I layered it over my New Silk Floral, Full-Skirted Dress (with Navy, Orange and Hot Pink Flowers). I am not sure the outfit worked, but at the same time I don't hate it. What do you think, honestly?
Floral, Colorful, Sleeveless, Fit+Flare, 100% Silk Dress w/ Scoop Neck: c/o "I Love Shopping Boutique" (New) (similar by Gap, best deal, love this), (similar gorgeous option by Jessica Simpson, on sale), (similar watercolor by Kensie, great deal).
Neon Yellow Statement Necklace w/ Crystal Tear-shaped Stones: A Local Jewelry & Accessories Boutique (New) (similar w/ triangles, best deal), (similar w/ neon yellow + silver crystals, great deal, love this), (neon yellow + black option, great deal, love this).
1 Red Bracelet & 1 Light Peach Bracelet w/ Silver Beads twisted around the Silk RibbonsBijoux & Accessories.
Round, Maroon-Red, Plastic-frame Sunglasses: Gucci (Birthday Gift) (New) (identical sunglasses in Tortoise - mine have redish-pink plastic frames), (very similar), (similar, best deal), (similar by Gucci).
Orange, Big Origami Flower, Thong Sandals: Purchased at a Shoe Boutique in Tirana (Made in Greece) (similar jelly sandals by Nine West, love these), (similar flip-flops, best deal), (another pretty option).

  16. The chambray and floral are cute together! What a fun chambray top!

  17. Cute outfit! Those bright sandals are fun for the summer.


  18. Your floral skirt is spot on trend.

  19. Chambray is such a light form of denim it's perfect for this time of year. Of course I love the bright colour in your

  20. The trim on that top is so unique and fun! I can't wait to see the other ways that you style it. I bet it will look great with some colored skinny jeans. I can see what you mean by still wanting a classic, short-sleeved chambray, though. It's a good thing you can never have too many chambray shirts, right!?!

  21. I do think the shirt and top works, but I might have left the yellow necklace. I think the yellow might be throwing off a bit. That top is definitely really cute though and I like the print mixing with the skirt.

  22. I love your floral print skirt! And I don't think you can ever have too many chambray tops!

  23. Chambray and floral is a nice combination :) I hope that you find those other chambray shirts you want! :)

  24. Great outfit combo. I'm dying to find a floral skirt now:)
