Anyone else suffering from a weekend hangover?
Not the typical alcohol-induced hangover type (although I won’t judge if you do!), but more the OMG-I-can’t-focus-or-do-anything-productive hangover. Both are equally terrible. A steady diet of buttered bagels, diet orange Sunkist soda and Aleve may fix the former. As for the latter, I’ve got a way better (and less caloric) solution — a crisp white shirt.
Blouse (Super flattering + now on sale for under $35!) // Jeans (Definitely a splurge, but the best quality denim I have yet to wear. These jeans suck everything in and keep their shape after multiple wears.)// Snakeskin Sandals (c/o DONALD J PLINER) // Sunglasses // Handbag (Mine is an old ZARA sale find and no longer available, but THIS one is really cute!)
One of my most commonly recommended items for my styling clients include a WHITE BUTTON-DOWN type blouse. Actually, if you look at any stylist’s list of must haves, I guarantee a crisp white shirt is front and center. You might be wondering what’s so special about a basic white shirt!?
That’s what makes it so special.
Consider a crisp white shirt a clean canvas of style. Something that you can dress up or down on a whim. A piece that can skew sexy, playful or all business with a few easy accessory swaps. When you don’t know what to wear (or don’t have the energy to think about it) is when you turn to your white shirt. In my case, I was looking for something clean to offset my DARK WASH DENIM and put the focus on these SNAKE PRINT LEATHER SANDALS.
I’m not generally one to lean towards pink, but I just couldn’t help myself when it came to these shoes. The snakeskin print gives the pink a bit of edge, which is definitely more my style profile. DONALD J. PLINER shoes also happen to be some of the most comfortable on earth. They run very true to size, if not a little large — you know, just in case you’re interested.
Alright, now back to the very important business of treating my weekend hangover.
I’ve got some homemade strawberry muffins and a very large coffee calling my name… oh, and obviously I’m wearing my crisp white shirt.
