Chambray, Shades & Studs

jeffrey campbell tick wedges in nude, chambray dress by bdg, fossil sunglasses, forever 21 earrings & belt, tennis bracelet from qvc, gifted watch, bracelet, & necklace

I’ve figured it out. When they say you’ve been bit by the fashion bug, it’s because you have been bitten by the Jeffrey Campbell Tick wedge. First the amazing ZiGi boots, now these? I am in shoe heaven, I tell you. Funny thing is, I see the Ticks on fellow fashionistas in every other color under the sun, but as far as I know this is the first time among my peers that the new version in Nude has been photographed for an outfit post.

I am in love with chambray right now. Yes, I am a little late to the party. But isn’t that called fashionably late?

I tend to wait out trends for a little while to see if they’re flash-in-the-pan (and thus a waste of money, hype, and time). Take notes: studs, nude/blush toned shoes, and chambray (or any denim in addition to jeans) are here to stay. And it’s easy to see why there’s so much love for nude (or any fleshtone) colored shoes – they really elongate the legs (and boy do my pasty sticks need every inch!).

Chambray is so effortlessly breezy – it’s just as easy to picture oneself in chambray strutting down Fifth Avenue as it is Aisle Five at the supermarket.

I snagged my Fossil shades back from HB for this outfit – the sun was setting and it was the perfect excuse to add a little more silver to my outfit. These shades were originally mine (let it be known) but [houston] liked them so much that I just had to let him keep them for himself. But that doesn’t stop me from joking about the “eventual” day that I will take them back. (I won’t.)

Jeffrey Campbell Tick Wedges in Nude

I’m so pleased, flattered, and proud to be selected for today’s Weardrobe Blogger Spotlight. Thanks so much, Weardrobe!

I also had a stroke of luck and out of 616 entries, was the sole winner of a 1930’s vintage diamond stacking band on one of my favorite inspiration (design/fashion) blogs, This Is Glamorous. It makes my entirely wasted holiday weekend (spent studying, indoors, by the oh-so-flattering glow of fluorescence and screen) so much more worthwhile (fashion karma for being a good girl?). What a welcome dose of glamour!

    so cute! I had seen jeffrey campbell wedges only in black, but the nude version is amazing!!!

  4. 06.01.2010 / 6:14 am

    Well well!
    I have to admit, when I first saw the Tick bootie in black, I was unimpressed. A nice shape, and nice detail, to be sure, but in black it looks much too expected, and quite frankly, boring.

    But in nude! Why, it might be a perfect shoe.

    Congratulations on your purchase. Very well chosen! This makes me very excited to receive the Jeffrey Campbell wedges I just ordered today – the Mary Roks in grey suede.

    Also, I hope studying is going well. Or, at least, going, which is more than I can say for myself.

      Thanks J! They pretty much are the perfect shoe. I heart them. So excited to see those Mary Roks on you! They are super sweet and have been lusting after them for a while. xoxo

    I love it! This is my favorite outfit post too. I want to get some cool aviators before I go to Hawaii after Step. Speaking of Hawaii, do you have any suggestions for outfits for while I'm there? Maybe some tropical tunics or sarongs for by the pool? Might make a pretty cool summer post if you want!

    Keep on keepin' on with the step studying. We're almost there!

    You look amazing. The dress is my favorite, I have one in dark denim and I love how this one looks on you. Those shoes are spectacular!!

  7. 06.01.2010 / 9:44 am

    VERY cute! I also can't get enough of chambray these days! Wore my chambray shirt to work yesterday, actually! & those shoes are pretty amazing! I do love me some Jeffrey Campbell…

  8. 06.01.2010 / 10:43 am

    I've been secretly luring around your blog for awhile now. But I couldn't silently lurk anymore when I saw this look! you look amazing!

    congrats on the weardrobe spotlight!

      I'm so glad you stopped lurking! Welcome to the light, Grace! 😉 Thanks so much…

    Those shoes are fabulous but that chambray dress is killing me! What a fantastic piece for summer! I've been looking for one in secondhand stores but no luck so far (although I clicked on over to Urban Outfitters via your link and it's on sale so maybe I can work it into the budget…I like your styling much better than UO's though).

    Big congrats on Weardrobe and the ring!

    You look so "modelista" in the black and whites–love 'em!!!
    And the dress and shoes couldn't be better together. (as a makeup artist, I'm partial to the shades you chose…good colors!)

  15. 06.02.2010 / 9:38 am

    Those shoes are to die for!!! 😉

  19. 06.02.2010 / 4:19 pm

    Oh Ticks…they continue to elude me.

    I love your dress – Chambray is amazing, I managed a double denim look the other day with jeans and a chambray shirt…completely failed to photograph it though! Ha!

  20. 06.02.2010 / 9:53 pm

    I love this look (as you know). The soft colors killed me on Chictopia!

    OMG i love your shoes…amazing look 😉 xoxo Eli

  30. 06.08.2010 / 10:55 am

    So, I thought I had let those Jc shoes out of my mind and then I see them in nude… so pretty! I feel the same way about trends, if it's something worth investing in it better not be worn by every 13 year old for two months and then be deemed óver'.

  31. 09.23.2010 / 1:30 am

    Wowzas – it never occurred to me how good these would look on us pale white chicks with bare legs. You make them tempting.

  32. 05.09.2011 / 10:39 am

    Very cool and funky…I would luv a pair like these :o)

  33. 07.18.2012 / 4:22 pm

    Very beautiful outfit. At first I thought the dress was a romper. which I personally think would also be an amazing outfit. I love the shoes too.
