Intro for “What’s in my Closet” and “What’s in my Pantry”

Ashley and I have each decided to start a new weekly post! Each week, I will post one item from my closet, and Ashley will post one item from her pantry. I’ll be focusing on how one item can be worn multiple ways, through multiple seasons, ways it can be used, or just simply explain why I love it so much. Ashley will focus on the health aspects of her pantry item, the different ways it can be used in recipes, or just simply why she loves it so much! Essentially, these are the same types of posts, except one is about fashion and the other is about food! Yay!

To start things off, here is the first item I picked from my closet to share with everyone!

 Oversized chambray button-down shirt

This is most definitely a staple item in my closet and works amazingly with year round outfits! It’s a lightweight fabric, making it tolerable in the hot summer heat, but it’s also a great layering piece that transitions into the fall and winter. In the spring and summer, I love layering this shirt over my dresses or tanks as a great alternative to cardigans when I get a bit chilly inside in the AC. The sleeves are also a bit oversized, making it easy to cuff up the arm. In the fall and winter, it looks great underneath a sweater, or layered over long sleeve shirts and leggings for that comfortable look.

Don't mind my messy room...I've been cleaning all day! :)
