It dawned on me this morning that Labor Day is this weekend. Which brought one very tragic realization to the forefront of my mind.....
This weekend signifies the beginning of my six month drought. Why so dramatic you say?
Well my favorite summer fashion goes right out the window for a brutally long six months during Labor Day weekend. I will no longer be able to wear white: white shoes, white cotton shorts, white linen skirts - no more bright white ensembles. Period.
I know many of you may not follow this golden, fashion rule - but I am a Southern girl through and through -which means I wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything white below the waist from Labor Day to Easter. It's one of those old rules I cannot dismiss no matter how hard I try.
I seized the opportunity to enjoy one last work day in my favorite white linen skirt this morning. I almost grabbed the white sling backs as well, but decided not to overdo it.
I have decided to welcome this weekend with a smile on my face. After this excruciatingly hot summer, I will gladly pack away my white attire and embrace the warmer colors and trends of fall fashion: scarves, boots, accessories.
I am more excited for fall than I have ever been before. Bring on the football and cooler temperatures!
