The Putting Me Together Style Challenge this week is to take inspiration from Pinterest – noooo problem!

Back when I started thinking about leveling up my style game, one of the first pieces I added to my closet was this Chambray shirt. I had read allll about how great chambray was, how you can wear it with anything, how remixable it is, etc. I thought, well, that makes sense – it IS like wearing jeans on your top half!
But I gotta say, I haven’t had the easiest time wearing the chambray. Possibly it’s the light color – this was way outside my normal comfort zone but I bought it anyway, thinking it would give me more remixing options with my closet full of dark denim (and darker colors generally).
And then there was the getting used to tucking my shirts in. Also something I hadn’t done in YEARS. To be fair, one just doesn’t tuck things into yoga pants, which had been my uniform for about 8 years (since my first son was born).
Maybe I just have issues with button-downs in general? I’ve had similar issues with my flannel shirt.
All this to say: there were and are challenges with me and chambray.
But I carry on! I liked this outfit pretty well, actually. I was feeling pretty put together, up until I splattered myself with oil while prepping dinner. Tres chic! 😛
