remember when i said that a chambray shirt is an absolute necessity in a closet?  this outfit is a perfect example of why.  it’s the ideal item to layer over a neon mara hoffman dress that is probably a bit pricey if you’re only going to get one look out of it.  but, add a magic chambray shirt and VOILA!  an entirely different outfit. the chambray tones down the neon, gives it a casual vibe, looks great with lipstick.  and now, i pat myself on the back.  i finally found the right rationalization for adding this dress to my closet.  see how that’s done?  xx- sarah  

SHOP THIS OUTFIT:  dress: mara hoffman (here and here), shirt: jcrew, shoes: dolce vita, bag: clare vivier, watch: marc jacobs, bracelet: tory burch, lips YSL OGBD

    Super cute. I just recently got my first chambray shirt (also from jcrew) and I wear it allll the time. I'm kicking myself for not buying one sooner!

    I can relate to the rationalization! I love chambray shirts with maxi/ midi dresses, its usually my airport uniform – so comfy 🙂

    Seriously love. This look is perfection, the chambray + prints.. <3

    And where do you find such wonderful walls for photos?! They're the best back drops ever.

    Love this. That Mara Hoffman dress is to die for, and you style it so well.

    I just realized after a Madewell order arrived yesterday that I have five chambray shirts. And yet, already, I'm looking at that J Crew one like… well, I could use it…

    I think I need an intervention. 😉
