I’m not into rules that don’t make sense. I follow rules that keep people safe, like stopping at a red light or rules of goodwill, like the golden rule. But no white after labor day, this rule makes no sense! In Houston today we are experiencing a record high of 98 degrees, so why should I not wear my white!?!? But rest assured I am not alone in doing away with this rule. InStyle Magazine just did a feature on winter white also, Oprah endorsed white after labor day many years ago. Even Emily Post agreed that it was acceptable to wear white after labor day, click here. But even if it wasn’t a record high today, not matter the temperature, you will find me in white after labor day.
I usually wouldn’t wear a necklace with this shirt because of the cool chevron detail. However, this pendant necklace actually worked to enhance and compliment the chevron detail. When I paired it together and I saw how it looked, I got super excited! Who gets excited about how a necklace goes with an outfit? Umm- I do!
I love wearing boots with white jeans. What’s more classic than white jeans, brown riding boots and a navy cable knit sweater!
Sisters unite, let’s wear our white! Disclaimer: I’m not advocating wearing white to places that you wouldn’t usually wear white, like a cocktail party. Also, just save yourself the headache, if you’re going somewhere that you know there will be a lot of “Emily Posts” around, just skip it. It’s not worth it.

Love this entire outfit!!! I recently did an all white post–not sure if you saw it, but the only while rule I am against breaking is wearing white on someone else’s wedding day. Otherwise, all limits are off! LOVE those booties and the necklace with the blouse! You have great style :).
