In the sleepy west of the woody east...

photos by Tom b.

chambray shirt: H&M
shorts: vintage 50's
brown woven flats: vintage
woven straw purse: vintage
tortoise sunglasses: vintage
listening to: Pixies Trompe le Monde "U-Mass"

It seems like every where I look these days I see chambray popping up. Growing up chambray was just that fabric I would see teacher style jumpers or button up shirts made out of in the LL Bean catalog. Since then I've never given much thought to it (perhaps because I tend to not wear much blue) but right about now it seems perfect for spring. Now I think I'm a bit addicted and need this dress to satisfy my fix.

me too! I was blah-ing on about chambray on the blog last summer, but it was hard to find good, affordable pieces then, This summer it looks like there will be a lot more to chose from. I'm also coveting the UO dress...

you look lovely as always!

You pull off that shirt so well. I don't think it would strike me in H&M, but I love how you wear it.
