Chambray – YAY!

Did you see all the new Chambray fabrics we added to the site last week!? Chambray is one of my absolute favorite fabrics. It brings all the benefits of denim, but with a softer hand. It has the elegance of linen with a casual weekend feel. Here is some inspiration for putting our Chambray fabrics to work!
