I also love tradition. So when I think about the rule, "Don't wear white after Labor Day," I have a dilemma. It's still hot outside. White is cute. So when it comes to the White After Labor Day rule, I follow the advice of South Park's Cartman: "Whatever, I do what I want!" Labor Day was three days ago; I'm close enough! I wear white sweaters and shirts year-round, but I think after last night I may retire my white bottoms until next year. Maybe.
With that being said, we had a couple over for dinner last night. Since moving to our new town, this was only the second time we've had people over (and I love entertaining). I kind of went a little overboard, but I got excited! You can read about the dinner party here. I wanted to find a cute outfit, and I tried on a few different outfits before settling on this one:
I bought the skirt at Macy's a month or so ago. It is a Calvin Klein white pencil skirt with a really pretty overlay. It was originally almost $90, and I got it in my size on sale for $20. Wahoo! I had only worn it once or twice since I bought it, and I wanted to wear it at least one more time this season. I'll wear it a lot next year.
Here is a closeup of the details in the skirt:
I found the shirt at a thrift shop! It has a Mossimo tag, so I assume it originally came from Target.
I am sorry Hubby cut off my shoes. They were just a simple pair of black flats. I skipped bracelets on this outfit because I was working on preparing dinner and didn't want them to get in the way.
I think this outfit would be great for work or for a night out, but only between Memorial Day and Labor Day...
