Travel Must Have: Chambray Shirt

Chambray Shirt Leather Pants Leopard Sandals

Back at it with another post from London town! (Side note: Do people even call it that? Or just Estelle in that Kanye song “American Boy” .. Anyone?) Whatever, going with it.

I wore this outfit out to dinner and drinks on our first night in London, last Saturday night. We went out in the Soho neighborhood for dinner and out to a fun bar afterwards. I don’t even know names because we were with a ton of Lauren’s friends from Dayton and I was along for the ride… So fun, though. (We then proceeded to snapchat our pedicab ride and a mega feast via room service… Oops.) A bit of a late start on Sunday morning! 😉 But we’ll blame the jetlag, right?!

You can’t really go wrong with a classic mix of chambray, (faux) leather, and leopard print. Top if off with a hat and you’ve got yourself a go-to!

A chambray shirt is an essential travel piece because you can wear it so many different ways. You can pair it with a skirt and sneakers for a day of sightseeing and with black jeans and pumps for a dressier look at night. The options are endless! #ChambrayAllDay

    Cute pics! Lucky that you were able to wear sunglasses in “London-town”!! We were there 2 weeks ago and it was drizzly, dreary and chilly most days!

    Couldn’t agree more – Chambray is always something that gets included in my suitcase when I’m packing for a trip!

    That J.Crew chambray has been a game changer for me. I wear it way too often, but it’s so versatile! Loving it with a neutral hat!

    This is so cute! And I totally agree – chambray goes with everythingggggg. I’m feeling the same way about denim jackets too – I bought one in a light wash and had an older one in a dark wash. Voila! All activities are covered. 😉

    Also love a good chambray shirt! I found the cutest one at J.Crew with a heart shaped pocket. Looks super cute with distressed white skinny denim!

    Hahaha it’s probably just Estelle 🙂 Welcome to London! Good choice- Soho. Probably the best food in central London. I love tour shirt. I recently bought a dark wash denim shirt from Zara and have been wearing it with practically everything!
