TSM Outfit Post: Casual Chambray for a chilled out Weekend

I’ve been asked a lot lately about how to dress casually; most people seem to have their work and special occasion outfits down pat but struggle with inspiration for the weekend. I tend to be very casual on weekends; you’ll never find me in heels and my typical weekend (if not travelling) involves meeting friends for brunch, shopping or exploring London. I personally think a chambray shirt is a really great staple for weekend wear. I’ve had a really comfy blue shirt (not quite a chambray shirt) for over a year now that I use constantly; it works as an alternative to a cardigan, looks chic tucked into skinny jeans with boots and equally cool worn loose with a tee and leggings. It’s versatility extends beyond age barriers – particularly great for new mums to throw on when going for a walk and convenient while nursing as well.

I took a few snaps from a ‘no plans just chillin’ type weekend my bf. We spent it browsing the Whitechapel Gallery, ducking into a cafe, admiring Brick Lane Street Art and picking up an afternoon sugary snack from Old Spitafields markets in London …

I found a decent cup of coffee @ the Exmouth Coffee cafe on Whitechapel street London!

I actually hate wearing shirts at work (Ironing? Um, no thanks – not while I need to slurp down breakfast AND rush for the bus) but this 100% cotton blue denim shirt from Topshop feels nothing like those cold stiff fitted shirts. The colour’s vibrant and I love leaving it unbuttoned with the sleeves rolled up for an extra relaxed look.

There are multiple ways to wear a chambray shirt – buttoned up with a statement necklace, opened and tied at the waist or buttoned paired with a fitted knit on top. I paired mine with a comfy pleat skirt and a skinny belt to hold it up and brighten up the outfit. This skirt has an elasticised waist (great for brunch!) and a really feminine feel about it. The flow and A-line shape makes it ideal if you’re pear shaped like me or just conscious of your bottom half.

I always want to try different flavours but always end up going for a red velvet cupake x

Wearing a skirt like this always makes me want to do this! Have a great weekend guys :)
