Fresh Air

Little White Dress

The days of no white after Labor Day are long gone.  To me, all-white-everything is a year-round look and I think the little white dress is a breath of fresh air considering all the plaid, leather and dark colors that have been taking over our wardrobes lately.  I paired my LWD (on major sale!) with season-appropriate accessories like a pair of leopard heels and a simple black clutch.  But my favorite detail has to be this cute little beetle necklace … because when else could I ever use the words “cute” and “beetle” in the same sentence?

  7. You look stunning in white! My mom is still adamant about no white after Labor Day, but I’ve been breaking the “rule” the past few years, and love it! There’s something so chic about winter white.

  9. Agreed, our grandmothers way of no white after September no longer applies. I’m on the same page with you. I’m still wearing my white jeans. Not winter white, they’re simple white. You look adorable. (new post today)

    Ooh I thought your necklace was of an angel from afar! You know what might be fun to try out? Plaid loafers! Who said you had to keep plaid to a top? 😛 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
