i tend to dress in a very simple manner. a few years ago, i would gravitate towards anything with a minimum of 5 colors and a vintage or geometric pattern. consequently, i now have bags filled with a clown-like collection of clothing (exaggeration) ready for give-away. as i transitioned into "collecting the classics", i've found this: packing for a trip, dressing for the day, and choosing an outfit last minute is equally as simple as the pieces themselves.
this installment of posts will highlight my wardrobe essentials. first, the oxford shirt. it goes without saying! worn with gently distressed jeans or a full length taffeta skirt- can you imagine? dressed up or down: collar stiff or relaxed; sleeves rolled up to the elbow or buttoned at the wrist. my favorite is from j.crew: "the boy shirt".
