Chambray layers.

When we were up in Syracuse, NY last weekend, we stopped by Destiny USA, the 6th largest shopping center in the nation and the largest in the state of New York. It was impressive, to say the least. One of the stores we visited in Destiny was Saks OFF 5th, where I saw a mannequin dressed in the cutest white sweater, layered over a chambray long sleeve and maroon skinny jeans (I didn't take a picture, unfortunately). I went over to look at the outfit, but all the items were out of my price range ($100 for the shirt, $250 for the jeans). But I thought I might be able to replicate the outfit with what I had at home:

The darker blue in the jeans provided a good enough contrast, but a dark red or black color would have been more striking.

Huh. My feet angle out. No wonder I always wear out the sides of my shoes first.
