A Chambray Shirt is my White Canvas

August 3, 2012 Raleigh, NC, USA

I don't know if you agree, but at least for me, a blue chambray shirt is an important  piece in a wardrobe as is a white canvas for a painter. It is a basic piece that we can dress up or down and also accessorize the way our imagination please. I have several pieces myself and I use and abuse them as much as my white or black tee-shirts. These days this fabric is so popular mainly in shirts, however, I will not stop wearing mine even when this trend (classic to me) become a passe.
Anyway, we went to visit Raleigh and Chapel Hill this week and I decided to wear my newest chambray, which I found it on sale at my local Anthropologie store. The shirt kept me pretty cool in a 90 degrees super humid day (my hair can't lie).

No se si ustedes me dan la razón en esto, pero para mi..una camisa azul de lona delgada (chambray) es como el lienzo blanco para un pintor. Es un atuendo básico e indispensable que lo podemos vestir formal o informal agregándole los accesorios adecuados. Yo tengo varias camisas de este material y las uso tanto como las camisetas blancas o negras.  En estos días se han puesto de moda otra vez, pero yo seguiré usando las mías aun cuando esta tendencia sea expulsada (en mi opinión  es un atuendo clásico) de los armarios de muchas fashionistas.
Esta semana nosotros fuimos a Raleigh, NC y Chapel Hill, y decidí vestirme con esta camisa de chambray que la encontré de rebaja en la tienda de Anthropologie. La camisa me mantuvo fresca considerando la temperatura de 90 grados y bien húmedo también (mi cabello no miente).

After almost a 2 hour drive, eating, walking etc..some wrinkling can be obvious in chambray fabric, but it is not so bad considering it is 100% cotton.
