Here it is, my first style post ever! I have blogged about fashion on this site here and there before but what I had really wanted to do was to do actual style posts. It’s been a long time coming but it’s here, at last 🙂

Of course, the day we did the shoot, it was super humid and windy. Of course! My dress and hair were just flying everywhere, but we did manage to get some good pics. I guess you cannot control the weather!

I spotted the sleeveless chambray shirt on a fashion blogger who does wardrobe capsules,which is basically choosing a certain number of pieces and then mixing and matching them to create different outfits. The intent is to just shop every three months and then swap out some of the pieces when the new season begins.

If you recall in an earlier post, I did a closet cleanout and eliminated a lot of clothes that I don’t care to wear anymore and incorporated a few pieces with what I had kept that I actually love and know I will wear. It was quite liberating to get the clutter out and embrace minimalist fashion.

But do you know how hard it was to find a sleeveless chambray button down shirt?! Everywhere I tried to look they were sold out! I went up and down Michigan Avenue and even hit up State Street to no avail. I scorched the internet and finally found one at Old Navy that was reasonably priced and in my size.

I had no idea how popular the sleeveless chambray was this summer. But I don’t blame them-this shirt is so versatile and goes with so many outfits,which I will show you in the next couple posts. Here, I styled it with a sleeveless long black maxi dress.

Add some accessories, and you are good to go. I paired this outfit with a tan bag that takes the outfit to a more daytime look, perfect for those lunch dates or daytime birthday parties.

So there you have it, my first style post! How did I do for a newbie? Go gentle on me lol! I had a lot of fun and honestly, I don’t know how these fashion bloggers do these EVERYDAY. And some of them are moms on top of it all!  I am aiming do to style posts about once a week, so we will see how it goes. Tune in next week as I style the sleeveless Chambray shirt with another outfit. Your support is greatly appreciated!
