I Can’t Stop Buying Denim Shirts.

Double denim is one of my go-to looks when I don’t want to spend time thinking about what to wear in the morning. So I can’t pass up a good denim or chambray shirt when I find it for a good price.

Lately I look for styles in tencel or lyocell (like the one I’m wearing here) which is soft and wrinkle-resistant and has a good drape like rayon. So it’s like your favorite silk blouse had a baby with your tried-and-true denim shirt. And it’s machine washable!

#OOTD: Chambray Dress

I didn’t mean to leave you with a soup recipe for nearly two weeks.*

I took a break from basically everything but my couch during Labor Day weekend, and when I got back to work on Tuesday it was full steam ahead.

I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to the abrupt season switch from summer to fall. One week, I’m watching Real Housewives on my Macbook to pass a slow afternoon at the flower shop, and then boom! Full calendar. I love it, but it takes a minute to get my bearings and readjust to the new pace. My brain is all, “give me one more month of lazy,” but my September schedule is like, “nerp.”

Speaking of things that are overworked, this chambray shirt dress has been a true blue friend — ha — but after two years of constant wear from the beach to work and everywhere in between, she’s nearing retirement. I like this similar drapey shirt dress from J.Crew, and this dolman sleeve style from Banana Republic.

* If you’d like another awesome crockpot soup recipe, this Slow Cooker Chicken Chili is a Lennox house favorite, and perfect for a cozy game day.

What I wore for a busy, chilly Saturday! It got me through a morning at the flower shop, a family reunion, an outdoor water ski show, and a birthday party in total comfort.
