Vintage Style: Chambray Shirt Dress

March 27, 2013

Hello, friends!  This week is flying by, I cannot believe it’s half over already and I still have so much to do!  That being said, I’ll get straight to today’s outfit:

ootd - chambray shirt dress, vintage belt, tan wedges

I am wearing a chambray shirt dress (Old Navy) that I belted at the waist with a vintage beaded leather souvenir belt.  I added my favorite pair of tan leather wedges (Mia via DSW) and accessorized with my rose gold watch (Target), a couple handmade braided suede bracelets (by me) and a mint and gold braided chain statement necklace (Forever 21).

This outfit is perfect for spring because it’s cool when the sun warms up, but it still has long sleeves for when the breeze picks up and it gets a little chilly.  I love the vintage feel of this shirt dress so I decided to play up the retro 70’s vibe by pairing it with a vintage souvenir belt and some platform wedges.  I chose to represent my home state with a “California” belt, but thanks to a friend, I now have a small collection of these amazing vintage beaded belts, as well as several up for sale in my Etsy shop.

Well, I’m off for more running around today!  I hope you have a great week, thanks for reading :)
