White After Labor Day.
White After Labor Day. Since I can remember my Mother told me that you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day. When I was a little girl, that fashion law was totally true … but over the past few years, not only has the topic been a fashionable meme, the law has been abolished.
Yes, yes you CAN wear white after Labor Day now and not feel bad about it. White jeans, white jean jackets, white coats, white whatever your heart desires …
When I ordered this sweater online, I pictured it coming oversized. I was wrong. Ah! The joyous surprises that come with shopping on the web. While this sweater was a snug, pairing it with these (guilt free!) white jean-gems definitely fit the bill. I added the blue pumps because why wouldn’t you? And this leopard coat is the first thing I ever purchased in Chicago …
After SS14 NYFW I flew to Chicago to visit my sister for her Birthday and to do some apartment prep. I left her apartment building, on a crisp September day, and thought “I’d be fine without a coat.” It was a little chilly, but come on – I’m from Pittsburgh.
I was so cold, I had no choice but to pop into the well known store and purchased this babe. She’s held up nicely, too!
The coat and sunglasses are Forever21, the sweater and jeans are H&M and the pumps are J.Crew.
