chambray + stripes

DSC_7348Have you all heard about Audrey’s weekly style challenge? I’ve been participating for the past two weeks, and I’ve found it helpful when it comes to outfit planning. This week’s theme is to copy an outfit you’ve pinned. I decided to go with this pin, originally from Land’s End.

DSC_7336I don’t know why I’ve never tried layering a tee underneath chambray before–it adds a layer of warmth and interest to an outfit.

DSC_7357While we’re talking about the tee, I have to mention it–why is it so friggin’ hard to find a basic striped tee?! I’ve been hunting for a tee like the one in the inspiration photo for forever but to no avail. The ones I find are always too sheer, too short, or just sold out in my size. I settled for this one from JCF a few months ago, but I’m still not satisfied. Harumph.

  1. I love this look! The hint of stripes peeking out from the dress is the perfect contrast. I also wore stripes and chambray for my style challenge. It’s a good combo! 🙂


  2. You would think finding a striped shirt would be easy but there are so many different ways to do stripes and then so many different ways to do a top that it ends up being harder than it should be. Have you tried You might have luck finding something you like that way. .


    • I actually have looked on Shopstyle a couple times. I think my problem is that I am too picky about what I want and unwilling to pay a lot for it. I mean, it’s a basic striped tee–I should not have to pay $50 for it!


  3. What a fun outfit, Caroline! I really like the striped tee underneath your dress – it’s a look I haven’t seen done much, but I think it totally works! I’m with you that it’s so hard to find a dang striped tee that fits all the criteria…booooo!
