The sun has finally returned to New England! The time for a button-up chambray outfit recipe is almost over because long sleeves are out and summer tanks are in! I know you can’t tell by these pictures, but as I’m writing this I’m even considering lugging our air conditioners up from the basement! Hooray! Summer is here!
Even though I’m feeling like summer, sometimes schools still don’t. The air conditioner can make it freezing even when outside temps make you want to head to the beach! As a result, it’s good to know some easy ways to layer. A button-up chambray is one of those closet staples that is good to have on hand. Not only can it help you add a layer if the air conditioner is up too high but it’s an easy way to change-up an outfit.
You may remember this dress from my Easter dress post. I’m still in love with it because it can be worn so many ways. In this post I wanted to show you a way you can “dress it down” a little and wear it to work. Just add chambray! My favorites are fitted and long enough to tie. This gives the top more versatility because you can tuck it in or tie it in front. An easy outfit recipe is to take a dress you already own and tie a button-up chambray over the top. Add a pretty statement necklace and some comfy shoes and you’ve just made your more formal dress appropriate for the classroom! I use this trick for both formal and casual dresses. (I did that with the pretty metallic dress from this post too!)
