Work It Wednesday - the Denim Shirt

I'm excited to join the Work it Wednesday link-up party created by Jill of Good Life for Less where you feature one style or wardrobe item and style it three different ways.  For my initial Work it Wednesday post, I thought I'd go with a denim shirt. 

I  love denim shirts - such a versatile wardrobe piece that can be dressed up or down!  I already own a light-blue colored chambray shirt I picked up from Macy's a few years ago.  It has some western detailing with mini ruffles in the neckline and built-in belt loops, though the material works best in the spring and summer weather.  I've been coveting a real denim or heavier chambray shirt for the fall/winter season with longer sleeves and less specific detailing and I finally purchased one at my local Gap Outlet a few days ago.  Though I haven't worn it yet, I'm excited about all the outfit possibilities the piece will bring to my wardrobe. 

Here are a few ways I hope to wear it:

A casual look for the weekend:

Denim shirt - weekend

A dressy look for an evening dinner or drinks date:

Denim Shirt - Night Out

A put together look for work:

Denim Shirt - Work

I hope you enjoyed my first Work It Wednesday post - head on over to Jill's blog to see the other entries or link up your own!

Hi Wendy thanks for stopping by! What a great tradition of having new pjs for Christmas day. I wish my mom would have started that tradition in house when I was little. I think it makes Christmas even more funner. Have a great weekend! :)

Loving all 3 looks, especially the second and third ones! I recently bought a chambray shirt after pining for it forever, but have yet to wear it. I think this post gave me the inspirational kick in the butt I needed- thanks!
