All white

I love the idea of all white, but other than dresses, it's been years since I've paired a solid white top with a solid white bottom. The last time I did so, someone said I looked like a nurse. So, I was wary about it this time and decided to add pops of black to break up the monotony - although black is pretty tricky, too, because you could end up looking like restaurant waitstaff. This felt great though, and I loved the way it photographed also. While I don't abide by the rule of avoiding white after Labor Day, this was a nice "end of summer" outfit. Although ironically, this week is probably the hottest we have experienced all season. 

What about you? Do you wear white after Labor Day?

  2. Posh & polished & your out the door! Amazing. I could never. And I'm sure I do wear it after labor day... but as fades my tan, so does my taste in white.

    1. Thanks, lady! And yeah, I love how white def accentuates a tan! I will have to make note now if my tan is directly proportional to my white craving!
