I had been holding my breath and waiting for a chambray shirt to go on sale. Finally, right before I passed out, Anthropologie’s Cloth & Stone pindot chambray hit the sale racks. I ordered the shirt and waited for it to be shipped. And waited. And then I got the dreaded cancellation email.
I had a coupon for $5 off a $50 purchase for the Nordstrom Rack. I thought perhaps they might have a denim shirt I could love. As soon as I entered the store, I saw it. It was the only one on a rack full of miscellaneous clothes. And guess what? It was a Cloth & Stone Chambray. It was the same price as my cancelled Anthropologie sale shirt, but had originally been more. It is longer in the back and shorter in the front. I appreciate this so much. I like anything that covers my backside. Amen. It was originally $128. I paid $45 for it after my coupon. I think it was called Cloth & Stone Slouchy Chambray. It is no longer being sold.
I love it more than my cancelled item. Everything happens for a reason.
I paired the chambray shirt with my pilcro stet pants in pink. I felt very sassy in this outfit. I love the necklace. It is called Cameo Creature Locket from Anthropologie. This one has a bulldog head on it. How could I resist? My daughter took one look at me, and said, “Is that new? It looks like you took Ollie’s head and mounted it on a plaque. Ugh.” From the mouths of babes. Kids will always tell it like it is. I still love it, though. And I bet I see my daughter wearing this necklace next week. How could she resist? I am also wearing my vintage Frye cowboy boots.
I have to thank Roxy at Effortless Anthropologie for this skirt. Every Friday, she hosts a post entitled “Friday Popbacks.” Sweet people will leave hints about what sale item is showing back up in their wishlist that day. Because of that post, I scored this skirt for $7.50! It was originally $128. It is no longer being sold, but it was called the Scattered Wings Skirt. I like the chambray shirt with it. I am wearing the Frye boots again. My earrings are also a sale find from Anthropologie recently for $10.
Last but not least, I am showcasing the chambray with a maxi dress. I love a maxi. This one is sleeveless. Momma can’t do those anymore. So, I paired it with the chambray shirt and I felt comfortably me again. The dress was an XL clearance score from Nordstrom Rack (you can’t trust those size tags!). It is by Presley Skye and called Smocked Bodice Print Dress. By the time the poor dress got to me, the removable straps were long gone. That is okay. I would rather save the 65%, than have straps. Do you recognize the necklace? It is the one my daughter and I share: Anthropologie Little Musings Necklace.
Which way do you like the chambray worn best? Have you invested in one of these staples yet this year?
