Found it: The Perfect Chambray Shirt

Good Monday Morning Ladies!  I am happy to report I am back from vacation, well rested and ready to tackle the world including the extra 5 lbs I gained while consuming way too much of anything and everything at the beach!

 The good news is, I have finally found the perfect Chambray Shirt.  Trust me when I say I have looked everywhere:  JCrew, Old Navy, Gap the list goes on.  Every shirt I tried on was too thick of a material, the wrong shade and/or made me look butch (ladies you all know what I am talking about,  some button-ups can make you look butch).  While on our beach vacay, my sister in law was wearing the cutest Chambray Shirt.  She let me try it on and it was love at first site. 

I introduce to you the Madewell Chambray Ex- Boyfriend Shirt in Ferrous Wash

Here is what I like about this Chambray shirt compared to others: 

  • Fitted but not too fitted.

  • Love the lighter blue color

  • Super light weight.

  • Super comfortable and cute


Right now I love pairing the shirt with my white jean shorts.  Added bonus it looks cute with all my statement necklaces. (Don’t mind the dead orchid in the corner of the top picture, I swear I can’t keep any indoor plants alive).

  This is how I would rock the Chambray shirt this fall with two different looks.

Ladies, seriously go to your nearest Madewell store or order online here.    It is free shipping and no sales tax for us Charleston gals or any city that doesnt have an actual Madewell storefront.  Trust me, you are going to want to add this shirt to your closet. 
Heads up it runs on the large side.  Mine is an extra-small and I usually wear a small, so order accordingly!

    Just purchased a new chambray shirt at J.Crew. Love throwing them on with colored shorts for class! Love the white shorts and fun necklace look too.
