One of my favorite looks that I’ve seen people wearing lately is a chambray top with denim bottoms. Sometimes the two shades of the items are very close and other times very distinctive, and I tend to like the distinctive looks the most. I’ll admit that I’ve probably worn a variation of this outfit about 5-6 times in the last few weeks. It’s just a very easy, casual look, and it has basic elements that make it simpe to mix up with different accessories.

I wore this outfit on Saturday to meet up with my closest friend for some shopping and exploring of Charlotte. I live outside of the city, and I haven’t gotten many opportunities to be taken around by someone who actually knows the city well, so it was a fun time! I had completely forgotten that it was St. Patty’s Day, but thankfully I had added a few green accessories, saving me from odd pinches from strangers.

I like that the chambray top is a looser fit than my jeans, and it would look great with colored denim, which is what I originally bought it for. I added in pops of coral and green to keep the look interesting, and they were a big hit. I think I received compliments on the purse, ring, and necklace. That’s the great thing about the chambray/denim combo–it provides a great backdrop to feature accessories while still looking cool and fashionable.

Don’t mind the chipping nail polish…
