dash of chambray

[seven] reasons to wear more chambray
1. snaps make superman-style wardrobe transitions a sinch (see above middle).
2. mr. j. crew is down.
3. it plays well with stripes.
4. you're one step closer to acheiving the denim tuxedo look you've always dreamed of.
5. you can be literally blue collared and maybe borrow a little of kyla's awesomeness.
6. did i already mention snaps?  pearlized snaps?  yes, please.
7. it's crepes.  mmm.  

chambray: thrifted, gap
stripes: martin+osa (it's a cashmere hoodie which sounds ridiculous, but is actually amazing)
wooly mini: j. crew (this season's version
flats: steve madden
sunnies: vintage, thrifted in vegas
