denial & a remix

     Why yes, I do plan to wear this dress every week, now that it's summertime. ...

oia jules bracelet, giveaway win
seed bead bracelet, DIY
Blue Plate dress, Ross
Dansko "Sakura" sandals, Nordstrom Rack

     It's in the mid-80s degrees here, and while there's a breeze, it's undeniably sunny and warm. Somehow, I managed to ignore this when I layered this chambray top over the dress. Upon getting outside I promptly rolled the sleeves all the way past my elbows -- stretch fabric to the rescue. :)
     When I first received this top, I had no clue that it would work well with just about everything. It balances out a floaty or fancy dress or makes a strapless or low-cut dress work-appropriate. 
      I won this gorgeous oia jules bracelet from a giveaway generously hosted by Hayley of The Weekend File. Blogging has definitely changed my taste in jewelry! I've always considered myself a devotee of dainty, understated pieces, and while I still love them, I've made room in my heart for chunky chains and bold stones. :)
 Dainty and chunky bracelets and a fuzzy hedgehog for good measure

     ** Want to see other ways I've worn my chambray top? I wore it in February to dress down a poofy dress and with a wide belt to pull off a monochrome look.


  1. Love the chunky bracelet! I'm all for chunky jewellery :)

  2. I just got a chambray top and am excited to find different ways to wear it, and I have a skirt slightly similar to this. (: Also, I love your chunky bracelet, so cute.

  3. Thank you for dropping by, Lauren! I think you will find that chambray top amazingly versatile. :)

  4. Kat - I always thought chunky jewelry would be too overwhelming, but I'm learning to love it. :)

  5. LOVE this look! The dress, the top, the bracelet, everything is working together for a great look. And yay for chambray!

  6. Thanks, Jen! :) This outfit is a recent favorite. :)
