My youngest niece is in first grade, and is a little fashionista. Sometimes she asks her mom to send me pictures of her outfits. Sometimes, I post them on the blog (here and here). When my sister sent me a recent outfit picture, I just felt like I had to copy it.
I don't think I've ever worn my denim jacket over a chambray shirt, and I thought it was a fun idea. Plus I was anxious to wear my new maternity chambray top.
I even searched on Pinterest to see if this was an obvious combo I have missed, and couldn't find anything, so my niece is officially the pioneer of this idea. As with any denim on denim, I think it's important to make sure your blues are different enough to provide a little contrast. And if you are really cool (like the 6-year-old), a printed chambray and embellished jacket help keep things interesting. If you aren't that cool (like me, for instance), maybe add a necklace and belt for a little shine!
I can't tell you where most of E's outfit is from, but her jacket is from the Annie collection at Target - I know this, because I bought it for her at Christmas.
I think my version would be a little better with my regular chambray popover, but it doesn't fit at the moment. This maternity top is just a little too billowy and I think the proportions look kind of goofy. I mean, I felt fine all day, but then looking at my pictures, I felt like it looked a little weird. Also wrinkly, but this is real life!
