First, let’s just talk about how cute this pink top is. It’s made of cotton (aka breathable), it’s not tight (aka comfortable), and it’s darling (aka you feel good in it -ha!). Now let’s talk about the color pink. It’s everywhere this fall, which isn’t surprising because it was everywhere this spring/summer! Remember this post?  So, what’s the easiest way to wear our pink, or any other top for that matter, from the spring/summer in the fall/winter?

Pair it with black! Plus, it’s super chic to do right now anyway. But really, pairing any of your more summery tops with black is an easy way to use your wardrobe all year round. Now, what’s the easiest way to make a short sleeved/quarter length sleeved tops warm enough to wear in the fall/winter?

I purchased this pink top last week, and I wore it 3 days straight…even though it had a stain after the first day. Yup, I wore it anyway. In the first pictures, I wore the pink top with black to a birthday luncheon. Yes, sneakers and all. Then we had a cool front come in the next day, so I wore it to an appointment with the chambray shirt under. I liked how it looked so much, I wore it for my Christmas card photos! Then on date night with black pants again! Do you think I like my new pink top? Ha! Who says you can’t wear pastels and short sleeves in the fall?

My New Favorite Chambray Shirt!!!!


If I had a fall uniform, this would be it. Denim on denim is the base layer for a ton of my fall/winter outfits- specifically the chambray shirt. I wear it under ponchos, sweaters, open cardigans, blazers, flannels and even my ski jacket! It’s no wonder I wore a hole in the armpit of my last chambray shirt. Rippppp! Can you hear it? I was so deflated. It happened over a year ago, and ever since, I have been looking for a new chambray shirt that I like just as much. Well, I didn’t find it last year, but I found it this fall! It’s the perfect wash, fit and weight! Just wait, you are going to see it on the blog all the time. ALL. THE. TIME.J. Crew ALWAYS CHAMBRAY SHIRT

Am I the only one who didn’t know that denim on denim is also known as the Canadian Tuxedo? Sometimes I feel like I live under a rock. Oh, and am I the only one who forgot that Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears dated? If you clicked on the Canadian Tuxedo link, you know what I’m talking about. Hilarious, no?J.

Look! It’s so comfy I can even twirl in it. Ha! You know what else I like? The monochromatic look. Even my earrings are blue- ha! Talk about easy.

Happy Monday!
