Wardrobe Staple: The White Shirt (& Link Up)

August 23, 2018

Okay, can I be honest here?  I was late to game when it comes to appreciating the sophisticated and classy iconic white shirt.  I would always read the white shirt on the list of must-have items for women, but I didn’t get it.  I mean … first of all, it’s white and going to get dirty, right?
