As with any remixable wardrobe, I'm all about using the same pieces to create completely new outfits. While you'll see the same patterns and pieces from me, I try to keep things fresh by putting together different looks.  For example, I've already worn this chambray blouse here and here and I've also worn stripes here and here, but here's how they look together. I threw on a fun statement necklace to dress the look up a little and to add a little color. I LOVED how it turned out.

Layering with a thin cotton tee can be difficult, especially with a chambray that has pockets and buttons that show through. I decided to try out Audrey and Fran's advice by layering a cami in between the layers. It worked! It created a smooth base for the tee to go over. Unfortunately, it did rise up at times, but no more than it probably would have on its own. Additionally, this wouldn't be an option once the temperatures rise--but for now, it works!

How do you layer with stripes and chambray? How will you transition this look into spring?
