Jackie and Marilyn | Chambray on Chambray

I’ve seen men wearing all-denim suits from the 90s, and it’s not my favorite fashion trend of yore. However, as I was trying to find clothes to wear with my chambray skirt, I realized my chambray top would be a great fit!

The ultimate question I had was whether or not this outfit would look like a denim 90s suit. And the answer I landed on was no!

IMG_3513What ultimately makes the chambray-on-chambray work is that they aren’t the exact same pattern or the same colors. Same tone and theme, but not matchy-matchy. A win!

IMG_3509Keeping on denim theme, I chose the button beauties from A Delightful Shop to go with the outfit.

IMG_3521And for a hot second I thought about wearing some chambray-like flats I own, but that seemed a little too far – it was a neutral palette and begged for a little pop of bold color. Enter my mustard heels πŸ™‚

IMG_3524What I Wore:
Shirt: Old Navy
Earrings: A Delightful Shop
Skirt: Forever 21
Shoes: Urban Outfitters

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be sitting here waiting for fall to begin.

Jackie and Marilyn | Gingham Gal

Confession time: I wore this outfit last Friday for a friend’s birthday celebration at Betty Danger’s Country Club, washed it on Saturday and wore it again to church on Sunday. I couldn’t help it, I love it so much!

IMG_3138This skirt arrived just in time and was perfect for attending a country club for the 99% (the Betty Danger’s motto). The linen material and gorgeous yellow gingham pattern make it a gorgeous summer staple! New challenge for myself: Make it work for fall πŸ™‚

IMG_3132IMG_3123The gingham material seemed like it would blend well with chambray, so I opted for a little pattern mixing, which I think works.

The skirt is a dream. I am normally skeptical of any skirt that isn’t A-line and that has some piece that draws attention right to my belly, but when I saw it on Brickyard Buffalo I had to try it. I was worried it would accentuate my belly but it actually flattens it out nicely!

IMG_3137The one negative is that because it is a linen material, it wrinkles a LOT. I had to iron the pleats into submission after I washed it. It worked, but it took effort. But for a darling bow skirt? I’ll do anything πŸ™‚

IMG_3143I wore some wedges and a chevron pair of button earrings with the outfit to top off the fun summer look, as well as a sun hat. And so I was set to class it up with the best of them! And go grocery shopping πŸ˜‰ The things I do for the love of a skirt.

Earrings: Brickyard Buffalo
Skirt: Brickyard Buffalo (also on Etsy!)
Wedges: ModCloth

Jackie and Marilyn | Inspiration Station

While scrolling all the lovely retailers I follow on Instagram, I found a photo of a model wearing a chambray shirt under a dress. It was gorgeous and, as always, I felt tempted to go to the website and see how much those items cost.

Until I realized I had a chambray shirt that looked exactly like the one featured. Matched it up with my dresses, and I had an identical outfit.

IMG_1501I realize I wore this Lularoe beauty a few weeks ago for Easter, but it fit so perfectly with the chambray. And I think it helps support a very important lesson here: You don’t have to buy a million pieces of clothing to have a well-rounded, stylish closet. You just have to find new ways to wear what you own!

IMG_1569I opted to add some bold accessories, including a jeweled necklace and bow belt.

IMG_1552 IMG_1554I am so excited to try some new outfits with chambray under a dress for the rest of the season! It was perfect for warm, but not that warm, spring weather πŸ™‚

IMG_1536What I Wore:
Dress: Lularoe
Shirt: Old Navy
Necklace: ModCloth
Belt: Francesca’s
Shoes: DSW
