bright white post labor day

IMG_1687

Every once in a while, fashion rules come up on the Fashion Huntress. One rule that often comes up is “no white after Labor Day,” which we’ve pretty much all agreed is not really a rule anymore anyway. I completely agree, so I’m celebrating breaking rules, or lack thereof, in all bright white. I hope everyone had a nice long weekend; they always seem to just go by too quickly, right? Ah well, four more days until the next one…

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Summer white, despite no real rules, does seem to be slightly different that winter white. I actually saw an interesting article in Vogue about the apparent difference:
As you know, my general rule is that there are no rules, just wear what you love! But, nonetheless, I did enjoy looking through and reading the article. And, I agree that ivory and cream seem to lend themselves well to fall and winter. 
2) Speaking of rules, I went back and forth about wearing hot pink shoes at work quite a bit. As you may know, I have worn them before at work and, ultimately, decided that they are fine at work if toned down quite a bit. I think the all white look makes the shoes still look quite bright, but not overly “showy.” I’m a firm believer that many things that can worn at work, as long as it’s done in a more “conservative” way. Fun shoes deserve to be worn, after all. I mean, you wouldn’t want them sitting all lonely in your closet, right? Lol, okay, I need to stop talking about how clothes and shoes have feelings.
Anyone else have white rules? Non rules? I hope everyone has a great day! Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Melissa, I am DROOLING over those shoes! OH! How you torment me! I WANT those shoes! But I am not able to walk in heels. OH bummer! I wish I didn’t see this post, but now that I have, I am in agony. I LOVE THOSE SHOES!!!!! Love, LadyPINKRose

  2. I agree! Yous should wear what makes you feel comfortable. And today, it was a day to wear white. So hot and humid which means Summer is still here and white is the right color!

  3. I love this one you! Walk on the wild side, huntress!
    I’m usually not a big fan of pink but, I really do love how you paired the shoes with an understated monotone outfit. I still can’t get over how long your hair is!! Looks great. And overall, I do agree that white can be worn anytime. I think that skin tone makes a difference though. Ivory looks better on my than stark white.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh my I love the pop of color in your accessories and how they compliment your beautiful lacy top. Great recommendations by the way! One rule that I abide by – have fun with mixing and matching and always let YOU shine through your outfits, and not the other way around 😉

  5. What a cute outfit! For some reason, the no white after labor day rule has been hard for me to break. I think I’m going to find a way to break it this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!
