Outfit of the Week - Chambray Love

*** I am not a fashionista. I shop at Target and I don't wear heels. You can read my reasons for posting an outfit of the week (despite my fashion deficiencies) right here. ***

A short story before I post this week's outfit. One of the first times I went home with my besties from college, I noticed their respective senior pictures sitting on their parents' mantles. I, of course, started making fun of their poses and outfits (cap-sleeved t-shirts, laying down with their heads resting on their hands, etc.) so they made me show them my senior picture. And of course I did, stating that my outfit was "timeless."

Here is said outfit/picture:

I know what you're thinking: "wow, that is timeless. Ashley will never be embarrassed of that picture."

Jean jackets have become a constant source of teasing between my friends and I - me constantly declaring their "timelessness" and them convinced of their "90's-ness" (this picture was taken in 2003, so that's a bit harsh, really).

Anyway, the point is, I have seen some fashionable stars wearing jean jackets as of late (are these people celebrities? I have no idea who they are.), so we all know they are still stylish.


***I'm not quite cool enough to re-embrace the jean jacket trend fully, but I decided I could tap into with the popular "chambray shirt." I honestly love this top. I'm wearing it simply here, but there are so many ways to wear it, so I'm sure it will be making a reappearance on the blog soon.

Chambray button-down: Old Navy
Pants: Banana Republic
Flats: Target
Earrings: Forever 21

Anyone else convinced jean jackets are timeless? Or am I "so 90's?"


  1. I also think they can still be worn, if done properly. But I also have friends who are convinced that they've seen their day in the sun. I'm sad cos I left mine in the states and there are so many times I would wear it if I had it!!

  2. I saw a jean jacket at old navy and totally contemplated buying it. I had three jean jackets until this year when I forced myself to donate two of them. I can't let go of the third... Timeless, you know...

  3. All I have to say is this: History repeats itself.

    Does that mean timeless, you Jean Jacket Queen? If so, then I'd say my stretchy Jnco wannabes are just as timeless as the jean jacket...


Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
