Bardot Week in Review

Our ninth POW (Piece of the Week) is the cabi Spring 2016 Bardot Shirt, a denim shirt with a boho, Southwest feel and lovely navy embroidery. This is the shirt that taught me to love denim shirts! With this boutique-styled denim shirt, we learned how to style a boho southwestern sparkly princess look; a classy denim & linen work look; and an easy, casual boho antiquing look. We learned to style denim-on-denim, different ways to tie and wear a denim shirt, ways to dress up a denim shirt, and more. We took the shirt from the office, to the flea market, to the garden, to summer theater, to a great date night. The Bardot Shirt is a versatile piece that adds a funky, boutique, boho, southwestern flair to your style wardrobe.

Without further ado, let’s review this denim week! Which is your favorite?
