Closet Remix – Chambray Dress

Last Summer, I had a great time remixing and playing with pieces in my closet. I loved the idea so much that I did a full 30 day challenge – using just 30 items to create 30 outfits. While the challenge was pretty stressful, I loved the creativity it sparked in me. Since then,  I have made every effort to maximize my closet by “remixing” items to create new outfits. I did that recently with this chambray dress from Forever 21. I needed to find ways to “maximize” this particular dress, so I decided to pair it with a pink peplum skirt as a shirt.

In both outfits (as a dress and as a shirt), I decided to pair the blue chambray dress with red and orange hues as they are complementary to the blue of the chambray. Complementary colors are colors that exist on opposite ends of the color wheel and tend to complement each other.

Remember this from a previous post?

Perfect Summer Outfit

Summer is officially here in Texas…and that means the 100-degree days are upon us. Summers in Texas call for light and comfortable clothes. That’s why I loved snagging this Chambray dress from Forever 21. The dress is super comfortable and also very versatile (more to come on that shortly). I paired the dress with a pair of super casual shoes to complete the perfect Summer outfit. I love the colors of the bag as well; they help to channel the spirit of Summer. This outfit is great for most occasions – from running errands to fun times at lunch with friends! Share with me your go-to comfort style for the Summer!
