Concrete Catwalk // Cinched Chambray

July 13, 2012

Chambray just screams summer to me… add a drawstring, a paper-bag waist & an exaggerated cuff and you’ve pretty much got the perfect shorts in my book.

Click through to see said shorts in action, and for the full look at what I wore to celebrate Independence Day in style…

My outfit definitely ended up being more playful than literal… no flag t-shirts here!  Just a tiny smattering of red, white & blue and a vintage top that ended up being an unintentional homage to the incredible fireworks show that we watched above the Hudson River.

Quite possibly my favorite 4th of July yet. :)


Top to Bottom:
Silk scarf – Vintage, thrifted (similar)
Earrings – Handmade by me, for sale here
Tank dress worn as a shirt – Vintage, thrifted (similar)
Bangles – Vintage, various
Cross-body bag – Vintage, thrifted (similar & way on sale!)
Shorts – J. Crew (similar)
Platform sandals – Faryl Robin (similar)
