Yes it is after Labor Day and yes I am wearing white. Not wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion rule that I am definitely okay with breaking. Some of my favorite fall and winter outfits involve cozy white or cream sweaters and white denim (I have these in my cart now!) It is still in the mid-upper 80s most days in September here in Georgia so it still definitely feels like summer for most of the day. You will be seeing me in fall and winter whites for sure this season!

This white one shoulder ruffle top is just so fun and can easily be dressed up or down. I came across this top at TJ Maxx and it was only $16! I linked a few options in the widget below for under $25.  I even found a long sleeve version that will be great for fall!

These Blank NYC flares fit me like a glove and are the perfect length for taller girls! If you’re shorter, then you can easily wear some wedges so they don’t drag the ground. The best part about them – they are pull on! No buttons to fuss with, but they still have functional pockets. These exact ones are selling out fast and are only available in limited sizes so I linked another pair that is similar, but are real jeans that button.

What about you? Do you love wearing white after Labor Day?

    love it! I’m wearing white today too 🙂 I never liked that rule anyway!

  7. Jordyn September 14, 2017

    I totally believe in wearing white after labor day. Fashion rules are meant to be broken right? The only white I pack away is white dresses, anything eyelet or overly summery!
