Closet Staples: The White Collared Shirt (Part 2 of Wardrobe Overhaul Series)

    Recently I blogged about spring cleaning and overhauling my wardrobe.   I had to toss some stuff away because I am so notorious in buying a lot of in the moment clothes that don't last through different seasons.  Now that my closet is empty again,  I promised myself to be wiser when it comes to shopping.  I plan on building the foundation of my closet with staples. With staples, I mean pieces that I can pair with different items from my closet to create different looks.  These staples are the building blocks of my wardrobe.  Through the next few blogs,  I will be discussing one closet staple that a wardrobe should never ever be without.  Today,  I will discuss one of the staples every girl must have in her wardrobe: 
            Closet Staple #1: A crisp white collared shirt
This piece is very versatile, it can be worn for work, casual weekend and vacation looks:

For Work:

Tucked in to a gray work pants, finished with a red belt a zebra pump and a black croc skin
structured purse, this outfit is sure to impress!

For A Casual Weekend Look:

So there you have it, closet staple #1 for work, play and evening out.  Please don't let your closet be without it my fashionistas!
