Wearing White After Labor Day

DON'T DO IT!!
That's what my mind screams every time I consider wearing a summer outfit or using a straw purse in mid-September. Of course it's 95 degrees outside, palm trees are waving in the breeze and my brain is instructing me to get out the tweed and flannel. I can't shake it even after living in vacationland for 20+ years. It's in my blood. There are favorite sweaters from long ago still imprinted on my memory.
And look at the yummy stuff Nordstroms has already put on their shelves!


And THESE...........

I don't care what Kathy Ireland says.....WHITE is going to have to wait until Easter.

tee hee! I had to laugh! This is such a dilemma for a lot of people! Not me! I will be wearing my white shorts until it gets too cold and my legs can't stand it any longer! Those shoes are gorgeous, even though I couldn't wear them, too high for me!

Even having lived all my life in Florida, I, too, have lived by the no white after labor day rule! But now, I do believe it is time to throw it out the window! It's hot here. I love that green jacket, but the thought of a jacket or sweater right now makes me crazy! Now those shoes.....oh, no!

I love the new design too! :) I am not such a fan of the shoes, but the coat with the great jeans...yells fall! I love that! Saw the jacket on another site yesterday and it was yelling for me to go order, today might be more than I can handle...BTW thanks for your kind words of encouragement on your comments. I love your site and really appreciate the comment!

My white shoes are packed away... flip flops are still in the mix~ but I don't think that they count.

Thanks for the public service announcement!

Isn't it funny how'rules' like that...the ones we heard when we were younger...are the ones we adhere to? Here is the way I figured it out for me...no white bottoms...unless it's the only thing clean. White purse...pack it up till spring. White shoes...I don't wear them anytime of the year...except sandals. But, a white top is right any time any where.
