LBD + Chambray

LBD and chambray layering

How to wear a chambray shirt: layer it under a little black dress!
Chambray under a LBD: daytime glam

As a future lawyer, I have to be careful about implicating myself in illegal activities. So all I will say is that I may or may not have accessed a very high point on Rice's Campus to watch the blood moon eclipse on Monday, which may or may not have led to the tell-tale bruises on my leg. If anyone questions me further, I'll have to invoke the Fifth Amendment.

Staying mum,


Dress: Ross, similar here from boohoo
Shirt: J. Crew, this season's version
Vest: thrifted.
Bag: F21, similar here from Charlotte Russe ($12.50)
Necklace: F21, colorful version here ($14.80)

Don't forget, this weekend is your last chance to enter my giveaway and win this cute fuzzy cat scarf (lovingly named "Cocoa")


  1. Haha, that sounds like some dangerous fun! I love the dress!

  2. As a paralegal, I support this. My husband always rolls his eyes when I read EVERY THING that I sign. LOL I love the layering of the LBD and chambray here!

  3. Beautiful look!!! I like your blog!!
    would you like to follow each other? let me know...

    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

  5. I love the layering you did here! also- good for you girl. I used to climb on the top of our auditorium to look at stars or whatever.

    ♥ perfectly Priya

  6. I've been trying to cultivate the habit of reading carefully over everything I sign, to the point where my friends will exasperatedly sigh, "Just let me sign it, I don't care what it says."

  7. You are so funny! Great Pictures, and the moon was amazing, right?!?!?!

  8. It was! Especially from higher up, and away from Houston's light pollution.

  9. heylo beautiful! I like your black dress and how you layer it with a shirt underneath, this would also make a nice youthful corporate look :)) nice touch with the necklace


  10. Hahaha, You are funny. I totally get your point me being a future lawyer too :) This look is gorgeous on you. I didn't know chambray looked so good under an LBD.

    P.S I love your style

  11. My thought process while reading this:

    "LBD over chambray, brilliant."

    "Is that the butterfly garden in the museum district?"

    *scrolls through a few more posts*

    "Is she a Rice student?!"

    Yes, hi, hello, I work at Rice. I am so glad you commented on my blog because I am now completely enamored with you and your outfits/writing style.

  12. LOVE how you layered the dress over your shirt... Such a great idea. Will have to try it soon :)

  13. It is the butterfly garden! Where do you work at Rice? Are you also a student?

  14. AHAHAHAHA, I love your posts and how you write. This one made me laugh out loud. You are so naturally beautiful. You managed to turn a more formal black dress into something casual and easily wearable for school or going around. That's bloody brilliant:D I love the first photo most where you're smiling and laughing naturally:D ahaha

  15. Nope, I'm not a student. I work in the Allen Center for Public Affairs. I went a little crazy following you on all your social media last night because I've been wanting to find other local bloggers.

  16. Lovin' the layers. Very creative. The statement necklace is a great touch of detail!

    Stay Styled,
