I love wearing white. To me, white is fresh, whimsical and timeless. It is the only color that makes my super pale skin look remotely tan…and you know what? The rule that white clothes need to be retired after Labor Day seems restrictive and dated to me. I understand that white isn’t the most practical color when it rains or snows, but if the weather is nice I say… go for it! Wear whatever you want to wear because that’s what makes your style yours. Besides, rules are made to be broken.

I enjoyed this lovely post-labor-day afternoon with Nikki in Ghent, Belgium. We even managed to get a few pictures together… a blogger must! I had so much fun with Nikki and am grateful she let me stay with her and volunteered to show me around her beautiful country. If you haven’t checked out her lovely style blog, go do so now!

it's a silly rule anyway, you look fab!

Natasha said...

Haha, I always hear about that rule in movies, but it seems so strange to me. I don't even know what Labor Day is :D I wear white throughout the year.

Natasha said...

PS. I just spotted there's a spelling mistake on the link for Nikki's blog. There's an extra h in chronic(h)les.

You're not even breaking the rule technically - it wasn't labor day in Europe :)

I wear white year-round too... there's no rule about not being allowed to look cute, right?!

Rachel said...

Yeah, the whole Labor Day rules kind of just makes me want to wear white. And what were they thinking when they made up that rule anyways? What are winter brides supposed to wear, according to the mystical 'them'?

Danielle said...

My boyfriend and I almost went to Belgium for our trip to europe in March. We decided on Paris instead. I still do want to see Belgium, especially Bruges! I've heard it's beautiful.
