In the early afternoon on Sunday, my sister Natalie and I headed downtown for a business meeting. We’re in the process of launching a company, so we were discussing the upcoming project with a graphic designer. Since we were meeting at Panera, I wanted to wear something casual while still looking put-together.
My chambray J.Crew button-down is easily one of the most comfortable shirts that I own. I love that I can dress it up or down; it can be worn with a pencil skirt to the office, or with colorful shorts to a weekend brunch. I was gravitating towards the color blue yesterday, and rather than pairing the chambray shirt with pastel pants, I decided to follow the denim on denim trend (though chambray is actually a little different from denim).

The key to mixing denims is to wear a lighter wash on top. I like to add a wrist full of bracelets and a chunky watch (my mom borrowed one of my watches and I completely forgot to get it back, so I subsequently continued to check a bare wrist all afternoon) to make the look more feminine.
As always, I toted around an over-sized handbag that houses everything from my iPad to juiceboxes and snacks for the kids that I babysit. Going along with the blue theme, I chose my new baby blue Michael Kors bag.
