just what i wanted

Lately I've seen a few of my favorite bloggers styling up cute short sleeved chambray shirts and had started looking for an option a little less expensive than the $75 (and sold out) J.Crew version.

Much to my delight, ThredUP had this vintage one from the Gap for under $10!

Be it vintage or contemporary, ThredUP has a seemingly endless inventory, and it's easy to use their search filters to find exactly what you want. To find this shirt, I selected womens shirts > button downs > light blue and was greeted by several chambray options. If you'd like shirt like this one, go take a look right now!

This week I am participating in the ThredUP $150 style challenge. See my other looks here!

  10. This chambray top is just perfect! I recently splurged on J.Crew and was doubting their polka dot chambray. I didn't take it home with me though, because I was having too many doubts. Love how you styled your vintage find with this lovely printed pencil skirt! xo

  19. Ugh, still looking for the perfect chambray shirt... I have a feeling I should just have one made, or get one seriously tailored.

    I love the shirt with this skirt, totally cute!

  25. Can I admit something embarrassing? I didn't even realize short sleeve chambray was possible. That seems like the most perfect transition top! I love it!

  28. I'm not going to lie, I'm sold any outfit that includes your gorgeous statement necklace - you could wear a paperbag with it and I would be telling you how cute it was! The short denim short, however, is a much more stylish choice ;)
