ChamChamQueen’s spring picks

By  |  0 Comments

My name is Chelsea Lensing, better known as the Chamchamqueen!  I grew up in a small farm town in Missouri, surrounded by nothing but cows and corn.  I’ve worn overalls since birth and to this day you can’t find me without denim or chambray on.  I am so excited to share with you some of my favorite denim and chambray picks.

L. Rachel Comey Composite Top – $322 – Available at Mille in Minneapolis, MN

You truly cannot go wrong with any of Rachel Comey’s pieces.  I love this top because I can be paired with any color denim and is slightly cropped for a perfect pant pairing.  While her pieces are slightly more expensive, the investment is worth the price.  If you don’t know much about Rachel Comey, just give her a Google, you’ll be instantly in love and probably be debating taking out a loan just to own her entire spring 2015 collection.

R. Litke Peter Pan Blouse – $146 – Available at Fable in Kansas City, MO

Chambray and ruffles all in one!  This sweet little blouse is everything and more you could want in a cham.  I love this shirt because it is unlike any other chambray I have seen, it creates the appearance of two shirts and is absolutely precious on!  If you think you’re too edgy to wear this blouse, think again!  Pair this with some coated denim and you’re instantly transformed into a chambray vixen.

L. Hadley Mute Shirt – $120 – Available at Hadley in Kansas City, MO

If you haven’t taken a look at spring’s denim trends yet, then you should know that frayed and raw edge denim is a must!  This black denim cropped top is great for a winter-spring transition and there’s even a lighter version!  Also, crops aren’t going anywhere this spring, so you can hit two trends with one top.

R. Apiece Apart Apolla Bi-Layer Crop Tank – $230 & Vittoria Straight Skirt – $345 – Select styles sold at The Clothiers Daughters in Omaha, NE

I am in love with anything midi length.  If that midi happens to be made out of chambray, my wallet it doomed.  This cham set is absolute perfection for anything and everything.  The office? Done.  Brunch with the girls? Absolutely! Grocery store? You know it.

L. Closed Denim Buttondown Chambray – $176 – Select styles sold at Fine Folk in Kansas City, MO

How often do you come across a great chambray that doesn’t have bulky man pockets? Never!  This cham is the perfect accompaniment to your sweaters that are begging you to lose the pocket bulk.

R. Ilana Kohn SS15 Collection – Select styles sold at Fable in Kansas City, MO, Mille in Minneapolis, MN, and Rocky & Luella in Chicago, IL

While this collection has not made its way into stores yet, it is absolutely worth sharing and putting on your cham radar!  I own several Ilana Kohn chambray pieces and I live in them!  I am beyond excited to get my hands on some of her spring chambray pieces, there’s even a chambray trench!

Levi’s Made and Crafted Empire Jeans – $87 – Available at Independence in Chicago, IL

You need something to wear all those chams with!  I am in love with anything Made and Crafted right now.  The quality is unlike any other pair of jeans I have own and you know it has to be good, it’s Levi’s!  They’ve only been around since 1873…oh, and they made the first blue jean.  No big deal.
