zara puff sleeve denim dressWe’ve all have heard about the classic wardrobe piece, the LBD (little black dress), but I’m going to make the LCD (little chambray dress) a staple wardrobe classic too. This is just the dress form of a Canadian tuxedo, which I have expressed my undying appreciation for many times before.

I just love all the simple details that make this dress more than just an ordinary chambray dress. The style elements: puffy sleeves, zippers on the arms, the frayed hem and the deep V back are all why I fell in love with this dress and why I’ll be wearing it all season. The $30 price tag also is a major bonus for something that I’ll be wearing for a long time. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite chambray dresses below, so click on through. Who else is all in for the LCD?!

How To Wear A Summer Dress In The Winter

black floral print summer dressHow to wear a summer dress in the winter is really easy. First, take your favorite summer dress and start layering! Wear some tights, booties and a chambray shirt. Tie it up to give yourself a defined waist. You can also wear a sweater over the dress and don’t be afraid to add color! A bright sweater can definitely change your mood in an instant! You can even wear a chambray shirt and a sweater for some extra warmth!

Since the weather in Chicago, changes constantly (remember last weekend when it was 70 degrees?!), I like to keep my entire wardrobe in my closet. I used to pack away seasonal items, but now I just keep everything out all the time and layer or de-layer accordingly. This way, I get more wear out of my clothes than just when they are in season, per se.

Leopard IS a Neutral

Leopard IS a Neutral - 6Leopard IS a neutral, if you ask me. My go to outfit is usually a denim (chambray) shirt with black jeans. I love this effortless look because it gives just enough contrast, yet it’s so easy to pair these neutrals with other neutrals or pops of color.

I couldn’t help myself when I found these leopard print booties at Old Navy on sale for only $13! They are the perfect fall booties that coordinate well with my (sister’s) leopard bracelet, tortoise frames and cat ring, of course. I may also have this thing with cat prints 😉

On a side note, it’s my 400th blog post and it’s finally NOVEMBER (my favorite month)!! Have an awesome week HAMR readers!Leopard IS a Neutral - 2Leopard IS a Neutral - 1 Leopard IS a Neutral - 3 Leopard IS a Neutral - 4 Leopard IS a Neutral - 5
