Before Sal posted her July challenge, I tested myself with wearing my neglected button downs. The least worn shirts are left-over workwear from before I retired (BR navy, Herve Bernard water mark, LE stripe and dot.) I figured that I would be successful if they all ended up in the ironing pile after going through the wash! I wore all my button downs, except the red plaid flannel - and I ADDED a new one (red and white cotton blend check - thrifted.). The most neglected one, the navy striped BR, got the most wears (4). In the process, I re-discovered that cotton and linen shirts are much cooler (on hot summer days) then a T-shirt! I will NOT be editing any button downs, and will in fact be wearing them more in the coming months!

#1 all my button downs, except Jean shirt, after DH did the ironing!
#2-#5 some of the shirts in rotation
