If There's One Thing You Should Have In Your Closet...

It's a chambray shirt.

Seriously. It is so versatile and can be worn with just about anything, dressed up or down. I decided to put my theory to the test and see how many different pieces I could mix with it, and I must say, I was pretty successful! There are a ton of other ways you could wear this, and many other pieces you could mix it with, so this is meant to just be a little inspiration, and maybe the nudge you need to go out and buy a shirt of your own!

Look #1: Colored Denim
This is probably the easiest look to pull off. Just pair it with your favorite pair of colored jeans, throw a cute tank on underneath, and you're ready. I paired my neon coral skinnys with a lacy gray tank and nude flats. Gray is the perfect neutral for fall, and it goes great with the chambray. I threw on a tribal print scarf at the last minute too, I feel like it ties all the colors together really well!

our carpets to come take pics for me!)

Look #2: Crochet Shorts
I love the country vibe of this outfit. Tie the shirt at your waist (you can put a cami underneath, tucked into your shorts if you're uncomfortable) and rock a long necklace. You can definitely dress this up, by adding some cute wedges, or keep it casual with flat sandals.

Look #3: Colorful Skirt
This one is definitely for the "younger" crowd, or for those not afraid to rock a super colorful, super tight, and super short skirt. You can always pair it with a more subdued or longer skirt, but my skirts are two lengths: mini and maxi. ;) I paired this look with a black tank underneath and wore it unbuttoned as well. I prefer it buttoned and tied, but you could also tuck it in and add a thick black belt. The possibilites are endless!

Look #4: Maxi Skirt
I think this is my favorite look, especially for fall. It's cooling off, but it can still get a little warm, so a maxi skirt will help to keep you cool! My gray maxi skirt is super comfy, and can also be worn as a strapless dress. Love that! A chunky necklace gives you an extra pulled together look, and some white sandals will complete the look (even though I wore brown)!
