Stay Cool This Summer In Chambray

Olive and Oak Chambray Dress

Since summer is almost here, and the weather is already nice and hot, I prefer to keep my outfits simple by opting for loose fitting clothing like this lightweight chambray dress (last seenΒ here).

Not only do dresses keep me looking polished and pulled together, they also keep me feeling cool and comfortable no matter how hot it gets.

A blue chambray dress like this one is just as easy to accessories as your favorite pair of blue jeans. Dress it up with heels or down with sandals. Add some fun accessories like a statement pair of earrings, or a trio of dainty necklaces. Plus, layer on a scarf or a jacket if it starts to cool down.

If you find yourself like me wondering what the difference is between chambray and denim is I recently learned that while they’re both made of cotton the difference can be found/seen in how the fabrics are weaved together. Chambray is a plain over under weave while denim uses a twill weave which gives it a diagonal pattern. Denim is thicker wile chambray is more lightweight which makes it perfect for spring and summer.

Finesse Hot Pink Tassel Earrings

I recently found these (and these) hot pink tassel earrings from Gordmans last month for only $5! It was a fun surprise when I saw that they matched the tassels on my sandals so well, plus a pair of brightly colored tassel earrings are the perfect way to add a pop of color to any neutral outfit.

Vendula London Tiki Bar Mini Saddle Bag

This adorable Tiki Bar purse is perfect to carry all summer long, or take on an island getaway. Not only is it extremely unique and adorable, I love how it has a top handle and long crossbody/shoulder strap so I have several ways to carry it.

Bella Ryann Expandable Charm Bangle Bracelets

Recently when it comes to jewelry I’ve been throwing caution to the wind and saying more is more. I’m loving how a large stack of charm bracelets looks together (all of these bracelets are fromΒ Bella Ryann) and currently my favorite one is theΒ evil eye.
