What I really want to wear right now.
With these jeans:
And these boots:
To top it off, these shades:
P.S. Here’s a much more affordable version of the pink flash lenses seen above.
Any list of Must-Have Wardrobe Essentials includes a crisp white shirt.
I don’t disagree that this is a style staple; I just don’t wear them often.
Why not? Well, frankly, I spill a lot. I refuse to iron. I have PTSD from wearing a thin white blouse as part of a school uniform in high school and freezing through four years of Wisconsin winters.
But when I see a pulled together, stylish person wearing a white shirt, I have to admit it looks pretty classy. It’s also a particularly sophisticated look for Women of A Certain Age, like Diane Keaton – who rocks a white shirt often and does it well.
If you’re looking to invest, Anne Fontaine is the way to go. The one with the asymmetrical collar is my favorite but comes with a steep price tag ($450!). Still, it is gorgeous and unique:
Thomas Pink is also a shirt superstar:
Eddie Bauer isn’t a brand I shop often, but I own this no-wrinkle white shirt and it is a champ (with a favorable price tag of around $50):

I had to pull these images from the web since the sweater isn’t on the BR site any more. I just bought it a few weeks ago, but it may have sold out.
I wish I would have bought this to pair with it:
But I didn’t, so I’m going to wear an old Kate Spade statement necklace that I bought for a friend’s wedding 2 years ago:
I can get away with jeans for Christmas Eve and these Tory Burch flats.
Gift opening on Christmas morning is casual but not sloppy:
These are both PJ Salvage from 6PM.com.
The rest of Christmas Day involves a lot of to-and-fro-ing and a big family dinner that is supposed to be at 6 PM but inevitably hits the table around 9-ish.
Fingers crossed for no wardrobe malfunctions and minimal family drama. Ho ho ho!
