This tangerine skirt was the perfect pop of color to a gloomy day. And again I am wearing Hubby's chambray shirt - I should seriously think about getting one of my own!
Although chambray appears similar to denim, it is actually a much lighter fabric and stems from Cambria in
. As it is a less coarse fabric, it's a lot more versatile than denim and is more comfortable and less abrasive. France back in the 16th century
This faithful fabric has been used for years to make men's work shirts but has since than gone from rugged to refined. To give it a more feminine look, I paired it with this skirt to give it a dash of color and a clean-line silhouette to tone down the toughness of the shirt.
There is a sincerity and lasting quality about chambray that makes it so interesting. I love that it is not masculine or feminine which allows me to pair it with different textures and silhouettes without having any limitations. I've also noticed that it is a fabric that can be washed and will age and become softer in time which makes it such a keeper.
