I had to resist calling this something like cham-brain, although I putting it as the starting line of a post isn't much better.
I have plenty of chambray dresses. In fact, most of them that are have become my favorites, and yet I've really resisted the chambray shirt. I don't know why. I never saw one and thought, yes, I want that! I need it to be in my life! Hanging on racks I never found myself inspired by one, clinging to it in sadness, leaving it behind, united at last in purchase.
But the thing is, lots of people have them and wear them with almost anything. Calivintage, comes to mind. I suspect it might be her that pushed me over the edge into buying one.
I think you can also tell that I was reading Tomboy Style this morning. This is one of those outfits that stumps me. Most of the time my aesthetic is something dreamy, floaty, beribboned or bowed in some way, and then every now and then I feel the need to be bookish and fusty, like old furniture, I need something downright boyish.
