Shirt Of The Moment

This time last week I was writing a post about all the essentials that I thought every woman should have in her wardrobe. Personally, the number one thing on my list is a white shirt.

They look clean, chic and modern, and you can wear them with so many things. Plus a little bit of detailing, a collar or the shirt length can change a white shirt from looking anything between sweet and feminine to sharp and sophisticated.

My wardrobe has definitely exceeded its quota of white shirts. The first one I ever bought was for a Christmas dress-up party, to which I was going as Santa (and honestly the photos from this party are probably the sole reason I don’t do dress-ups any more). When the party was over I threw out the fake glasses, bow tie and red suspenders, but the white shirt remained. It’s cotton, loose fitting and extremely comfortable, with a simple button up front and the perfect length hem. It was the first and my favourite, until I stumbled upon one in Seed Heritage a few weeks ago.

This shirt was love at first sight, still classic but with a bit of a twist to keep things interesting, and I knew it had just blown my current white-shirt-hierarchy to smithereens. So I took a photo of it and left it in my camera roll, intending to go in to Seed Heritage the first chance I got to pick it up.

I never made it to the store, because a week later one of my beloved students, who had seen the photo on my phone, came in with it as a thank you present.

This shirt is not only my current white-shirt-number-one, it’s actually my favourite thing in my wardrobe, because it’s got a lot of love attached to it, and every time I put it on, it makes me smile.
