Back in February, I blogged about this styling page from Neiman Marcus's website, featuring a blue camp shirt:
Back in February, it was still way too cold to actually think of wearing skirts or shorts bare-legged, or even open-toed sandals. Now that it's finally June and things are starting to warm up, I decided to revisit these outfit stylings and see if I can recreate some of these, using things from my own closet. A few weeks ago, I picked up this chambray shirt from Target's Merona brand, and I love it! It occurred to me that it would work in place of the camp shirt, and well, the rest you can see for yourself:
Casual Printed Skirt Pairing
I thought the Apothecary Skirt captured the colors and floral print
of the skirted pairing above pretty well..
Skirt: Apothecary Skirt, Anthropologie
Dressier Skirt Pairing
The pleats and sturdy fabric in this more structured skirt
allow for a slightly dressier look for this otherwise casual top.
Skirt: Lillith Striped Skirt, Kate Spade (Do I look like the cat who ate the canary?)
And because a woman's wardrobe cannot live on skirts alone...
A pair of short with fun details (printed, tied, or culotte style) makes this shirt
just perfect for a summer's day of...well, pretty much anything. ^_-
Shorts: Heatwave Shorts, Anthropologie (from summer 2010; other printed shorts options here, here, and here)
Untucked, this shirt is long enough to work as a tunic, when paired with cropped skinny pants/jeans.
Outfits don't get a whole lot easier than this, and the longer lengths are perfect for cooler evenings
I love it when something in my closet can work as hard as this top. What do you have in your closet that seems to go with everything?
