While chambray and denim are often confused for one another, they’re not exactly the same fabric. A chambray is a plain weave fabric woven with a colored yarn in the warp and a white yarn in the weft. Like chambray, denim is made with a colored yarn in the warp and white in the weft, but is woven in a twill construction. The chambray’s warp and weft threads will alternate one over the other, while denim’s warp thread will go over two threads in the weft before going under one. Typically, you will notice a lighter color to the underside of a denim fabric, whereas the underside of chambray will appear much more similar to its face side.
The above items were added recently and make for a great feminine (soft) casual differential.
The top is Tommy Behamma's Chambray Montauk 3/4-Sleeve. I got it during their 25% off weekend. The color is called "Light Storm Wash" and is a beautiful medium blue. Plus as described above, the material is not heavy; soft. I love the gathered sleeves because I almost always push my sleeves up to the embow. I so dislike long sleeve anything.
The pants are Chico's Brigitte Slim Ankle Pants in Alabaster [white]. Chico's is part of Soma and I do get a great employee discount. Chico's describes these with a " Hidden Fit technology that shapes your style for a figure-trimming fit". They are high rise and hit well above the belly button that smoothes the front when pulled up. I have come to like the pull on style and it's form fitting front and back fit; both flattering and feminine.
The pumps are ancient, Banana Republic suede.
