chambray for summer

We have one heck of a weekend coming up! We've had 2 days of beautiful weather and the weekend is only going to get better. And to top it off my weekend is fun of good times. This evening Mike and I are taking the dogs to a new dog park that opened about 5 minutes from the house. I'm pretty excited about it because the next closest dog park (the one we go to almost every weekend) is about a half hour drive away. It'll be nice to get there in just a few minutes. Then tomorrow I'm participating in another cupcake festival. I'm entering in two categories, best tasting and best hudson valley themed cupcake. I'm not sure what I'm naming my hudson valley cupcake yet, but I think it's going to be all local ingredients and be apple/caramel flavored. We'll see how they come out when I make a test batch this morning. Sunday we're heading to Connecticut to visit Kristyn's bakery. Talk about yum!

Now on with some fashion for me to drool over! This week's Friday's Fancies is all about chambray. I'm not one to normally wear it, but I have seen some gorgeous looks on pinterest where they mix chambray with simple lace to dress it up. I love the combo so that was my inspiration for this week's look.

I am always hesitant to buy chambray because I don't know what to pair it with but you have given me such gorgeous inspiration! What a great summer look! :)
