I promise that this project will be my last style-related blog post for a little while. I’m not sure if this comes as good or bad news to you Why the last project, you ask? Well, it’s simple, because after my red jeans project, green jeans project, and this project, I simply have no more clothes to show youI’ve now exhausted my wardrobe on these 3 experiments…and I have no plans to buy anything new for the time being.
What started off as a fun idea to mix and match as many outfits as possible with my new red and green jeans that I got at Gap will now conclude with one last super fun project! This Chambray shirt is my newest item of clothing and it has become my favorite top for it’s sheer versatility! It can be dressed up with a pencil skirt and pumps, it can be a chic weekend look when paired with a maxi skirt and belt, it can be everyday comfort when paired with skinny jeans or trousers, and it can be flat-out beach ready with a pair of shorts and sandals. I love clothing like this – no thinking involved, just throw it on and go! Effortless style.
Just as with my previous two projects, Rich and I waited until after we put the kids to bed and knocked this project out in two hours flat. I told him it was the last fashion-related photo booth project for a while, so he agreed to do it for me on that condition! He’s such a good sport when it comes to me and the ideas that pop into my head that I just have to follow through with
I had a ton of fun with this experiment, and was surprised to find 21 outfits for this one new shirt. Nothing else is new (except the colored jeans that I used for my earlier projects), and some of these items are SEVERAL years old. Hopefully I revived them in a way that inspires you to dust off some older pieces and put them to good use. It’s amazing what one new item can do for a wardrobe!
