These photos were taken quite awhile ago right before a massive movie marathon session. I feel like I rarely share more deconstructed casual outfits, but I wear this men's chambray shirt so often that I wanted to share.

I love to watch The Barefoot Contessa, like most aspiring cooks. She is a major inspiration in the culinary world and apparently fashion arena also. Ina Garten (The Barefoot Contessa), is continually caught in a chambray shirt on her television show. I think I heard thru the grapevine that she wears them for aprons. Once I thought about that concept, it made so much sense to me. I'm not a huge fan of overly frilly or girly aprons (My anthropologie apron sadly does not get nearly enough active time in the kitchen). Chambray or denim shirts would button up over clothing, keeping it clean while in the kitchen, denim shirts are durable and easy to wash clean, and most options come with pockets for storing small items like rubber bands. Needless to say, I've been wearing my denim shirt not only for movie sessions but also in the kitchen (constantly).
