Last summer, when we spent the Fourth of July with Merrick, she had saved me a large stack of clothing from when she had weeded through her closet.
I didn’t keep most of it (if Merrick didn’t want to wear it, there was a good chance I probably shouldn’t want to either), but I did snag a really great patterned chambray shirt. When I asked her why she was getting rid of it, she said, “I really like it, I just already have a couple of chambray shirts.”
I already had a chambray shirt that I really liked too, but this one had a subtle floral pattern on it that made it a little more fun.
They’re perfect for tossing on with a pair of shorts and sneakers for a look that’s just a step above a t-shirt, but it’s easy to add a pair of black or white (I just ordered this pair – crossing my fingers) or dark wash jeans for a slightly more polished look.
Or, if I’m going somewhere in the evening, I can swap out my shorts or jeans for a skirt and some nicer sandals and be ready to go again.
