White after Labor Day is okay

Tuesday, September 4, 2012













[top: Calvin Klein, skirt: Ann Taylor, wedges: Fergie (purchased at Macys), earrings: Francesca's, pink bracelet: Fossil] 

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly, and yes, I do stand by what it says. I am a firm believer that fashion should not have (too) many rules - of course self-respect is always a rule in my book when getting dressed in the morning. However, fashion is all about expression and creativity, and if I feel like expressing myself by wearing white sandals on September 4th, then I am going to go ahead and do that with confidence (especially if it still feels like summer outside)! Heck, you might even see me in white jeans again before winter hits. My motto is: 'wear what you feel,' and that concept knows no season. After all, rule-breakers are the ones who end up defining history. 
The fact that I bought these two pieces (top and skirt) separately with a span of about 2 years in between, from two entirely different lines, just goes to show how wonderfully unpredictable fashion can be. When I saw these two hanging together in my closet, I knew it was a match made in garment heaven. Happy shopping!

  2. You look so pretty! I love your bracelets. I also don't follow the white after labor day rule, what a silly rule to begin with. I wear white all year round! :)
