Everyday Elegance: Chambray Basics

Lately I'm all about the basics.  I love building a closet of staple items that can pair together to make a classic look at anytime.  It makes it easy when your feeling indecisive about what to wear, pretty much me all the time!




I think investing in basics in a great idea, because ideally they should be with you a long time.  For me this is the time to spend a little more then I would on trendy pieces that I may just want to give a try, but am not sure I am going to love.

You can never beat an investment in a good handbag.  I love my Kate Spade, but we all know I'm a major bargain hunter.  My tick is timing.  I always pick up my large Kate Spade bags, which I love to use for work, when I can get them for around $100, which I consider a steal since usually they go for $300 - $400.  I wait until it's some sort of holiday weekend, or special promotion, and then the outlet store almost always has 50% off, plus an extra 20% off on handbags.

Below is a few great options for adding Chambray to your wardrobe, I'm loving the ones from Loft.  Good thing I have a gift card left over from Christmas!

Do you tend to stick to the basics, or do you gravitate more towards the trends?

  12. love your handbag! I can't believe you can get a bag like that for $100...my Kate Spade outlet doesnt' have bags like that at that price. Maybe a crossbody but that's it.
