I’ve been reorganizing and cleaning out my closet for the past few days and it seems like almost everything I own has ruffles and bows (no kidding). They are beautiful statement pieces but not very versatile for day-to-day wear. What I seem to be missing in my wardrobe are basics like this summer button-down shirt by James Perse. It looks so light and airy and much more chic than a basic tee.

Beautiful simple construction. It’s also available in white and black.
