Friday's Fancies: A Beach Day in Chambray

Chambray sounds like it would be some fancy beach destination in the south of France (in which case, totally count us in for an upcoming vacay), but really it's just a fabric that looks a whole lot like broken-in denim. When {av} told us to let our chambray flag fly for this week's Friday's Fancies, we decided to make ours a beach cover-up. So pardon the interruption from your previously scheduled day and take a moment to pretend you're sitting on an unknown Chambray beach in the south of France with us. (Gotta love an active imagination.)
