Thursday Fashion Files Link Up #5 - Chambray Dress Styled for Early Spring

Welcome to Thursday Fashion Files!

Welcome to Thursday Fashion Files with Jill at Doused in Pink and Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom! We are excited to have you here and would love to have you link up one of your latest outfits with us. Last week was a BIG week for us, because we had OVER 100 link ups! It is so exciting to cross into the three digits and its because of all of YOU! Thanks!

We are always looking for Co-Hosts for Thursday Fashion Files. If you haven't signed up to Co-Host, but are interested, sign up by clicking HERE. If you have already signed up for a Co-Host spot, take note that the party is now starting on Thursday at 12:00 A.M. instead of Wednesday evening.

The weather was in the 70's this past weekend and I decided it was time to share an early Spring outfit! I bought this chambray shirt dress from Old Navy last Spring and I have been in love with it ever since. This is a basic dress that can be styled SO many different ways. I will share with you two other ways I have styled it at the end of this post. I also decided to add a lighter scarf, now that the blanket scarves are hopefully put away until next fall. A skinny belt, an arm party and some bright pops of neon yellow and coral pull this chambray dress into a colorful outfit.


I was going to wear my Tory sandals with this outfit, but since there was a lot of yellow in the scarf, I decided to pull out my neon yellow tipped flats again. They are my favorite flats right now. :)

Isn't this clutch so pretty tucked under my arm? The pop of coral spells out S.P.R.I.N.G.!

I won this Stella & Dot clutch from a giveaway that Jill at Doused in Pink was having! I got a bracelet from Stella & Dot for V-Day and ever since I have been wanting more products from them... so, it was so perfect that I won this clutch and a necklace (which, I don't share in this post) and they are both from Stella & Dot!

The clutch is so cute on the inside, it is white with navy polka dots. There is even a few slots to slide your phone into and some cards, but you can't see them in this photo.

I also have my mint and neon yellow drop earrings on from Charming Charlie. Don't they blend perfectly with this scarf? 

Now I'll share the rest of the photos and let them do the talking!

These were during my 30x30 Challenge I did last April... I selected 30 items from my closet and wore only those items for 30 days, so these were real outfits I wore last Spring. You can see the start of my April 30x30 post HERE.

Emily from @LivingProofInc emailed me out of the blue a month ago and told me she wanted to send me a box of hair goodies. I thought, um, ok... Why not?! I was expecting some samples... Not THIS!! I received full size bottles of their Curl Conditioning Wa
I was also sent a HUGE box of hair product samples from Living Proof a few weeks ago. She told me to try them and I didn't even need to blog or share the products on my social channels. I expected a few samples, but not a huge box full of full size products! I used these products on my hair for these photos and I can definitely tell a difference in my hair. It is always nice to be sent something and to really love it! I received full size bottles of their Curl Conditioning Wash, Curl Detangling Rinse, No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Curl Defining Styling Cream, Curl Enhancing Styling Mousse and some fun hair ties!! 

Also, don't forget about the $50 Giveaway I have going for AMI ClubWear! I just received a dress from their collection that I am hoping to share next week at Thursday Fashion Files!
