20 Whites to Wear After Labor Day

Never wear black with navy. Your shoes & bag must match. Don’t mix prints/patterns. You can’t wear gold and silver together. Don’t wear horizontal stripes because they’ll make you look fat. Sequins & rhinestones are only for evening wear. Never wear red with pink. And of course, you can’t wear white after Labor Day.Rules

Yes, Walter, you are the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules. These are outdated rules that at some time, I suppose, helped guide women to dress “appropriately”. I think the above fashion rules are rather silly, so I’d like to share with you my own fashion rules.

Rules to Dressing Like a Babe:
01. If you like it, wear it.

It’s as simple as that people. In fact, you can apply this rule to any aspect of your life. Do you like that corn dog? Ya. Eat it! If it makes you happy, go for it. It’s your life, live it how you please. [insert any other YOLO-esque cliché here].

But seriously, if you love that fuchsia maxi skirt and that red cropped halter, wear them together! If you’re feeling good about what you’re wearing, you’ll also look good. Your confidence will radiate out of your precious little face, and everyone will know what a babe you are.

So in the spirit of not giving a shit about the rules, I give you 20 whites to wear after Labor Day.

01. Tank Top | 02. Bag | 03. Beanie | 04. Watch | 05. Socks | 06. Necklace | 07. Open-Toe Bootie | 08. Knit Sweater | 09. Skinny Jeans | 10. Dress | 11. Wedge Sneaker | 12. Clutch | 13. Sunglasses | 14. Bikini | 15. Nail Polish | 16. Jacket | 17. Oxford Shirt | 18. Cropped Tank Top | 19. Jumper| 20. Mini Skirt

What are your fashion rules?


Bodacious Backpacks

With the school year looming, I thought backpacks were an apropos post topic. Plus I can’t hop on social media without seeing some babe toting a new pack. Personally, I only like a backpack for hiking or day trips. I feel naked without a bag on my arm & the straps don’t cut it. But some of these pieces are so alluring I may trade in my top handles for a backpack.

Let’s take a look at some fab options.
