The past week I feel like all I have been doing is searching different retailer’s websites for new spring arrivals. It gets me so excited! Fun fact: I love new clothes! There, I admitted it but I don’t love having items in my closet I only wear once. I feel guilty at the time of purchase if I know I’m only going to wear it one time. I’m pretty determined this year to only add items to my closet that I will want to wear over and over again because I love them so much. And I want to help you do the same! That’s where this post comes in: CLOSET STAPLES. Over the next few weeks, I will be showing a series of basic closet staples and different ways to wear each one. I get questions and comments every so often as to how I always look put together. The truth is, having a few different go to closet staple items to mix and match makes dressing easy when you are in a hurry.
First, I am going to start with an item everyone must have in their closet – THE CHAMBRAY SHIRT! It’s been a staple in my closet for years! I mentioned on stories last week that I have had the same one for probably about 4 years. I have had a hard time letting it go or updating it because I love the fit and color of it so much. But I was determined to find one for you guys! And here it is! When I pulled it out of the bag, I wasn’t necessarily set on it because the wash was a little different for me. But when I threw it on, I loved the classic fit and knew the lighter wash will go with so much!
White denim and a chambray shirt is always a classic outfit. This is one that does not go out of style and is always a go to when you just don’t know what to wear. I paired the shirt with my new favorite high rise denim! I have been on the hunt for a new pair and these are winners! Chambray shirt | high rise denim | straw bag | similar earrings | sandals
I shared these high waisted shorts in the Amazon try on earlier this month and so many of you scooped them up! I love them paired with the chambray shirt as another way to dress them up! This color is almost sold out but I think the chambray top would go with any of the other colors! This is a cute, summer outfit that makes me feel put together even when wearing shorts. Chambray shirt | high waisted shorts | sandals | earrings
This next look is one that I reach for often. When we have a park date or running errands, this is an outfit I will throw on to feel my best doing all the mom things. It’s easy, functional and comfortable! I love this outfit paired with sneakers to dress it down. They definitely make it easy to run after the little guy in these! Chambray shirt | drawstring shorts | sneakers
And lastly, throw a chambray shirt over a cute romper for a casual patio dinner or outdoor event. You could even tie the shirt over a t-shirt dress to change it up! This romper will be on repeat this summer wearing it over swimsuits, with a denim jacket or just like this! It’s almost sold out but fingers crossed it comes back in stock soon!

Which way is your favorite? I hope this gives you ideas when putting outfits together!
Hope you have the best weekend!
