Chambray is one of my favorite fabrics. Technically, it's a flat woven fabric made out of dyed threads, but basically it's just a lighter denim fabric. Just like denim, I consider chambray to be a neutral. You can pair it with pretty much any color and it will look good, but you can also wear it on it's own and it will still look great! The fabric is utilized in so many different types of clothing and accessories. I'm linking my favorite chambray finds in tops, bottoms, dresses and shoes.

This dress is adorable! The embroidery is so detailed and pretty and I love the drop waist! I was worried this dress would be too long on me, but it is the perfect length for me (for reference, I am 5'4"). This dress doesn't need much dressing up because it's the star of the show, but it would look adorable paired with a blush pump or a coral slide and a bold lip.

Now that it's springtime, I'm constantly buying flowers to have around the house. In the next couple of weeks it will be peony season (my favorite flower) and I want them to last as long as possible! I gave you five tips to making your bouquets last longer below, but don't forget to take a look at all of my super cute chambray finds.

HOW TO MAKE FLOWERS LAST LONGER

With peony season coming up, I want them to last as long as possible! Like a lot of people, they are my favorite flower, but so hard to find! I rounded up five ways to keep your bouquets fresher, longer. 

1) Cut the stems - Cut 1 to 2 inches off the stems, cutting at an angle. This allows for better water intake. Cut an inch off every other day at an angle to keep them fresh even longer. 

2) Prune - Pruning your plants means to take off any leaves that will be in the water. Removing these leaves helps your flowers open up fully. Check your flowers daily for dead leaves and remove. 

3) Change your water daily Fill the vase with room temperature water and flower food. Thoroughly rinse out vase and change water and flower food daily. 

4) Show case them in the right spot - You've heard flowers need sunlight to grow, but not after they're picked. Avoid direct sunlight. Bouquets will last longer in a cool room, away from drafts and appliances that generate heat. 

5) Put them in the fridge - If you really want to go above and beyond, put your bouquet of flowers in the refrigerator every night. Flowers thrive in cool environments and this method has been proven to work!
