Chambray Shift Dress & Cherry Blossom

How To Wear Navy and Denim with Joules

I’m a safe player when it comes to my wardrobe, without fail denim makes a near daily appearance, from jeggings, to boyfriend jeans, to my 25-year-old Levi jacket. Other than a cute pinafore in my very early years I’ve never meandered towards denim dresses, that is until the lovely lot from Joules got in touch and tempted me with this lovely denim style chambray shift dress.

Now I’m not sure if you noticed but the sun has been making some what of a come back and lucky for me I happen to live in the prettiest of towns, with cherry blossom lined walk ways and daffodils galore, so seemed only right to head out in the sunshine to get some snaps of this smashing dress which I teamed with the most beautiful nautical jersey¬†blazer with gold buttons.¬†How To Wear Navy and Denim with Joules joules chambray shift dress

There is something truly fabulous about Joules packaging, it’s covered in flowers and to be honest quite simply brightened my day when it arrived. I must admit though that I was a little unsure this dress was my style, I thought it was a little too grown up for me but as it turns out it, this dress might just be the greatest addition to my wardrobe. Even better, it appeared just in time for my spending ban to start!

What you will find a lot of in my wardrobe are jackets, they are surely one of the most versatile finishing touch to any outfit. Many a time I’ve raced out of the door, feeling mighty under dressed and thrown a blazer on, and behold I feel fabulous! Now this jersey blazer may not be one of those ‘throw on and go’ blazers, it however the kind of blazer that makes me feel generic ambien look like like I can do anything, like a real grown up.

This jacket is epitome of classic styling, made from navy herringbone lined with Joules famous nautical stripes, and finished off with crested brushed golden buttons. It’s so soft, I’m sure it will be an all-year-round jacket, the light satin lining keeps it cool in the summer, but the heavier jersey outer will go perfectly with a great big oversized knitted snood.

I love the versatility of this dress, so far I’ve worn it with converse, black tights & boots and like in these pictures, my fail safe tan block heels from Primark, not to mention my Ray Ban Wayfarers, which made their first appearance of 2015. Tortoiseshell and tan really do compliment denim, not to mention the lovely pink blossom in the background.

This dress is perfect for every season, from the length, to the contrasting turn up cuffs and that elusive perfect just hits the knee-length. I’ll be wearing it with open toed shoes and sunglasses through the summer, and with thick tights and shoe boots in winter, it truly is the most wearable dress, it’s also got pockets, so that’s bloody brilliant!

This dress will most certainly be heading on numerous city breaks with me and I do believe will make its way into my wardrobe hall of fame, with other classics such as my leather jacket, little black dress and obligatory white shirt.

I’d love to know how you wear your denim? Have you branched out to a denim dress or are you rocking dungarees? Let me know!

    These photos are absolutely gorgeous! I spied a Joules dress in a charity shop in Chester a few weeks ago and tried it on – was gutted when it didn’t fit right! Denim is a fail safe item in my wardrobe too – I’m pretty sure I never go a day without wearing denim something or other.
