I’ve had this Rugby gingham shirt for about seven years now and have worn it at least once a month since I acquired it. It has withstood the test of countless machine washes and ketchup stains but look as good as new. Purchases like this make shopping fun because I rarely know at the time of purchase if something will remain on permanent rotation.

J and I are homebodies who like to dine in so my pretty dresses rarely have their moments in the sun. A few weekends ago (ha, I know, insane backlog) we ditched our weekend sweats and put on our Sunday finest for dinner at a restaurant by the river.

I abandoned the dramatic derby hat at the door because even my normally shameless self felt uncomfortable with a statement piece on my head.
