The Perfect Chambray Shirt for Spring


What a b-e-a-Utiful weekend it was in the city. Saturday was a bit chilly but totally sunny and Sunday was perfect. It was so nice to have my windows open and enjoy a true Sunday in the apartment. I'm totally in the spring mentality so I broke out the white pants and sandals and we went out! Check out more below.

Andrew and I spent most of Saturday exploring the city. We walked around Washington Square park and then walked around the Village. One of my favorite blocks in the area includes these colorful townhomes. On one side of the street you have amazing colored houses and on the other some really yummy food!

We decided to venture into Cafe Dante for lunch in between shooting photos and man was it so so good! I had been to Mermaid Oyster bar (next door) more than a handful of times but never even noticed Dante until this weekend.

Andrew and I split the salmon avocado toast and the pumpernickel french toast. Both were so delicious but I think we both wish we could have had more of the toast! We'll just have to go back soon :)

I was excited to break out my favorite white jeans and sandals but even more so excited to wear my new chambray! I've owned plenty of chambray shirts in my day but honestly have never "invested" in a good one. I thought it was finally time and I snagged this one from J. Crew.

It was extremely comfortable and really fits nicely. I know we're all trying to find the best priced chambray shirt but I really do believe this one is worth the cost! It's the perfect wash, has a really flattering cut and is pretty stretchy. I'm wearing a 6 for reference.

PS - how CUTE is this new crossbody from Henri Bendel?? I personally love the suede olive color for spring but it also comes in black. I'm all about cross-bodies these days.
