Essential Wardrobe Item 3: The Button Down

We’ve always owned buttons downs but it didn’t occur to us until this year, when our favorite swim coverup go-to became a button down, that button downs are truly a classic and beyond versatile staple that is a MUST in our closets!

It’s funny, we remember shopping with our mom in the men’s section at the Colombia outlet in Destin, Florida years ago for a waterproof material white button down for her to use as a cover up. She was shopping in the men’s section to get one long enough to cover her behind! It’s amazing looking back to that trip 6 years ago because she is really always is ahead of the trends! Maybe it’s because she understands classic pieces such as the button down that never go out of style! Here is a pic of her wearing the one she found back then!
