CHAMBRAY DRESS RE-CREATION


A couple weeks ago I posted some outfits in my Friday Favorites HERE that I want to try to recreate as I thought they were so stinkin' cute! 
This adorable chambray dress ensemble below was one of them.
I actually had everything in my closet to make a similar outfit. 

While, a little lighter shade, I got my Chambray dress from the Loft a couple months ago and love how comfortable it is. The style possibilities will take me well into Fall.

My leopard clutch is from Express, scarf from Amazon, Booties are Dolce Vita from 6pm.com and Fedora is from Target. (after I did this post, I got a darker tan fedora that would've looked better and will be more Fallish but I still love how this turned out and the lighter color of it for Summer.)

Another CUTE Chambray dress my husband got me Saturday (Clearance at Eddie Bauer)
It has pockets!! Great for Fall with a cardigan!!
