Pattern Mixing with Chambray

aside from the 6-week long phase in middle school (hello, popped collar!), i’ve never really considered preppy as a word to describe my style. especially after living in the south for over two years, i know that i cannot fit into the real group of prepsters around. however, chambray is one of those pieces in my closet that would argue my non-preppy ways. and so, on days when i’m feeling anything but proper and collected, i like to use a chambray top in a bit of an ‘edgier’ outfit. actually, i don’t even think i can call this outfit edgy because it involves polka dots, but you know what i’m getting at. used as a layering piece, this chambray shirt is the perfect base for a look that combines patterns, textures, or even different colors. add a bright lip and your favorite boots and you’re good to go!
