try and try again

stripes + chambrayLike most things I fall in love with, I first saw this skirt on my fav.  I searched the interwebs high and low for it, but I couldn’t find it anywhere and figured it would remain a distant dream.  Then one day while perusing Dillards I saw it.  On a sale rack.  I grabbed it and charged immediately to the counter.  I was so excited.  When I got home, I tried to follow Atlantic-Pacific’s lead and pair it with blacks and camels but I could never quite make it work with what I had.  Black on the top with black tights was a little too bodysuit.  My browns, nudes, and camels were all just off with the pale panels in the skirt.  Bright colors were too much.  But I never gave up hope.  What I should have figured out a long time ago was that of course a chambray button down would do the trick.  If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times.  Chambray makes everything work.
