That One Shirt

Shirt: Ralph Lauren, Skirt: Anthropologie, Necklace: Anthropologie, Shoes: Target, Bag: Aldo, Watch: Michael Kors, Sunglasses: Tilly's
I recently received this message on Facebook: Dear Boston Fashionista, can you help?! My job requires wearing certain colored embroidered shirts on specific days of the week to work. For ex: I have to wear pink every Monday, purple every Tuesday and so on. Any suggestions on how to keep it fresh? 

I love this question! I grabbed a pink polo shirt out of the closet and took it for a spin. Here are some of the options I came up with! First, of course, I had to go with some bright colors (above)...

Shirt: Ralph Lauren, Pants: Via Seta, Jacket: Thrifted, Shoes: Chinese Laundry (swapped!), Belt: H&M, Bag: Urban Outfitters, Sunglasses & Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Vintage
And of course, I love a pair of silk trousers for work! This time, I paired the shirt with a leopard belt and a funky jacket...

Shirt: Ralph Lauren, Skirt: Worthington (swapped!), Shoes: Melissa Shoes, Belt: Consigned (Second Time Around, Harvard Sq.), Bag: Urban Renewals, Necklaces: Guess, Pearls: Gift from my Folks, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters
A little more traditional route with a black skirt and belt, and plenty of necklaces. And, finally...

Shirt: Ralph Lauren, Shorts: J. Crew, Jacket: Target, Necklace: Aldo, Shoes: Cole Haan, Bag: Vintage, Sunglasses: Forever 21
Dressing up some shorts with a blazer and feather necklace...What do you think? How would you style the same shirt, every day?

Here is another shirt I wore for the work day and the weekend
