Day 11

Wear a dress or skirt.

I think I do this most days of the week, dresses are my staple for work and play. In this Oklahoma heat, they really are the only thing that is truly comfortable right now.

Here's the Look:

Dress: JCrew, Cardigan: Forever 21, Belt: Thrifted, Shoes: DSW

I thought I should give this dress one last hurrah before it gets shoved to the back of the closet until next summer. Does the whole no white after labor day rule still apply? I'm kind of thinking anything goes these days. That said, I'm sure this dress still won't see the light of day until then anyway. It has summer dress written all over it.

Thanks for all of your fabulous suggestions regarding that odd vest/jacket of mine yesterday. Juries still out on what I'm actually going to do with it. If I turn it into something amazing, you all get credit.

Moving on...

Since coming back from vacation on Monday night I just can't get into the swing of things. Every morning I wake up exhausted and confused, at work I stare blankly at the computer screen for hours on end, and yesterday morning while I was getting ready at the gym, I quickly discovered I left my bra and underwear at home. It was awesome! But today the hubs and I had a dance party in the car on the way into school/work, hopefully that means we're almost over our post-vacation depression.

Oh my goodness, I love the flowered cardigan. I keep seeing them around and have been afraid to try one out. Maybe not so much now....

You look Great in Purple!!! Love the outfit! If it's Hot outside, wear white, even after Labor Day.

Great outfit! Funny, just this morning I was thinking I needed to secure me a white dress and you have an amazing one! Thanks so much for your helpful info on how to change the look of my crazy shirt....I'm going to give all the things you suggested a whirl!

In my humble opinion, white should not be worn after Labor Day (but like Cynthia said, maybe if it's still super hot outside). But it most definitely should never be worn in the fall/winter. So many girls here in backwoods TN do it and I want to scream "Come on! Even I know you're not supposed to wear white right now!"

Oh-well.

I'm right with you! I've been looking forward to "wear a dress day" so that I could sit back and coast through that one. lol

I absolutely love that flowery cardigan!

Heather said...

Sam said...

That cardigan is exactly what I've been looking for. I'm sure it's not available anymore lol. Great look, you look so summery and cute!

Becky said...

Oh my yellow shoes would go with your outfit. Such fun. Love that color combination.

You look great!

What I hear is that white CAN be okay after Labor Day if it can be dressed up with things like boots or sweaters and such. Something that's a bit more substantial and tailored lends itself better to that sort of thing. Except it seems like most white stuff is light and frilly and, you know, comfortable to wear in heat. So most of our stuff probably wouldn't transition well.

I think it is true that anything goes! I think as long as it's the appropriate temperature to wear a summery dress, then it should be okay! Besides, you can grab a lot of attention wearing white when it's not "in-season." =P And, I'm just browsing through your entries and catching up, but you *DO* have a different hairstyle in each entry! =P Neato!
