Double Duty Denim
Forever 21 chambray top (similar styles here and here), Love Culture floral trousers (dream version), Aldo handbag (luxury option), assorted jewelry, and Michael Antonio Gallista heels
I've been hunting for the perfect worn-in chambray top for so long that I almost gave up hope. Infinite thrift store versions always included some kind of unwanted embroidery or the wrong fit, so I continued to hold out. When this See by Chloé-esque style caught my eye, I immediately pounced on my prey. The faded pocket squares, roomy fit, and pearl snap closures make this one a keeper.
As comfortable as the top is with my pajama-esque pants, I also envision it tied in a knot over floral dresses, tucked into pleated skirts, paired with printed and colored denim, or worn open (as a jacket of sorts) over loose tank tops and cutoffs for summer. Any piece that can do double duty as a top or jacket gets top priority in my bulging closet.
