February Style Challenge- Chambray

Posted on: February 12, 2014

I don’t own a traditional chambray top , so used my version, which is chambray and white stripes…

And sad to say, I am not happy with this outfit, something that doesn’t happen much these days… 

but I never claimed to be perfect,so in the interest of honesty, I am posting it anyway….


I was freezing with winds whipping me and really wanted my coat and gloves..

I think one problem with this look is i don’t like the three shades of blue going on here…and I think the other is the silhouette of the top, which is a tunic length and belts so has volume,   In Spring or Fall I’ve worn this top with a tank or long sleeved tee underneath ,but under the boyfriend length sweater, It”s a dud… and a mistake I won’t make again….


I find this length sweater difficult to style… I think when you are a curvy girl like myself it can present a challenge… I think I am missing the structure a jacket offers…

I do like the yellow and cobalt colors together with the chambray striped top..


I am so tired of having to wear boots for warmth and would so have liked to just pop on a pair of pumps…

I see so many bloggers in bare feet with just a pair of heels on, but I could never do that as I hate being cold and to me there is nothing worse than cold feet or hands…

My kids make fun of me for wearing my gloves just to run to the store in the car, if only they knew I sport two pairs of socks with my boots….

Dear Readers, Today was both my brother’s birthday and a dear friends… I went thrift shopping with her as she got a Goodwill gift card and I made a stop in Steinmart as they sent me a coupon for an extra 50% off of red dot clearance items.  I will be posting MY LUCKY FIND”S soon…

I began a three day reduction in calories and high protein  before beginning my exercise program, so will actually start on Thursday with the Rockin Body dance program …

I feel so blessed to have been a child who got to see Shirley Temple in her youth and the love I had for her shows… May she rest in peace…


I am grateful to have spent time with my dear friend on her birthday…

I am grateful to have accidentally run into my brother as he was sharing his birthday dinner with his daughter.

I am grateful for  my husband getting home very early tonight, as last week he put in a lot of hours…

I am grateful that my home-schooler  completed his assignments even when I wasn’t home…Progress!!!!

I am grateful for an outfit i wasn’t too fond of and the chance to look at it and discover why…

Hi, Tracey. I actually love these colors and the length. I know it’s your preference for shorter…but I love wearing this length top and cardi. You have to wear what is comfortable for you and what you feel is most flattering. These colors do make me feel that spring is just around the corner and that makes me happy. 🙂

Thanks I think the belt,neckace and turtleneck were a bit much….
