The Ralph Lauren Shirt

A couple of weeks ago I decided that I needed, okay, wanted, a bit of a wardrobe overhaul. I didn't feel like I had enough 'key pieces' in there, and it was something that I wanted to change. So, the first place that I decided to head was Cheshire Oaks, which, if you're not too familiar with the NW, it's basically a hugeeeee designer outlet and omg I spent a good 3 hours lusting over some absolutely beautiful pieces in Mulberry and Burberry. But um, well, a girl still has a budget. 

I nearly didn't even nip into Ralph Lauren, but I didn't have much else to do that day so I thought why not, hey? And this is when I picked up this classic RL shirt, and I also made a sneaky trench coat purchase... not that I don't have enough coats, but y'know...

Paired with my staple black jeans and flats, I feel that this shirt captures the epitome of 'smart-casual', making it the perfect outfit for the office. This also might sound dead daft, but I LOVE how soft the cotton is in this shirt, it's just so bloomin' comfy and cosy.

Do you have any wardrobe staples?
