It’s Wednesday Everybody! Happiness is in the air because I have so much to be thankful for. I’m thankful for my health, my friends and family and their undying support and this blog that I get to share with you! It’s truly the small things in life that bring you happiness.

I’m in love with denim these days! I decided to pair white jeans with a chambray button up. Denim, jeans, chambray? What’s the difference? I asked the same question. I did some research and found out that denim is the fabric used to make jeans. All jeans are denim, but not all denim are jeans. Chambray is not necessarily the same fabric as denim, but the construction of the fabric is similar where the colored yarn is in the warp and white yarn in the weft.

I wanted to stick with white and blue hues to keep this look simple and chic. The cobalt pumps add a bold pop of color, which is always a yay in my book. I also added a cognac leather belt to separate the button up from the jeans. I like wearing my belts off to the side because it creates a unique look. Since most of the outfit was blue, I wore red sunglasses to add another sharp color contrast.
