I wasn’t going to give an opinion on wearing white after Labor Day.  I didn’t believe it was an issue any longer.  Until I ran into a woman last week, who, upon seeing my outfit, said….

Woman:  I applaud your courage to wear those white pants.  I just can’t do it…my mother’s voice rings in my head not to wear white after Labor Day.

Me:  Maybe, I am just rebellious.  My mother told me the same thing… But, I don’t think the rule makes sense.  I mostly hear the rule followed by women in Southern states or women older than we are.  White pants work any time of year.

Woman:  I just can’t do it…I ‘ve been trained to think it is wrong.

Well, I feel sorry for her, because there are some beautiful styles throughout the year including white garments.  One of the ways I like it in the fall is with a look like this one I am wearing today.  Darker neutrals always work with white.  The only reason to not wear white all year is if you just do not like it.   What do you think?  White or no white for fall?

Today’s Outfit with pieces I have owned for awhile:

Keep Smiling…and Wear White if You Want To!!


  1. Thank you all for your patience as I changed over my blog.  I knew there would be some issues, but it really has gone more smoothly than I expected it would. HOWEVER, if you are not getting the email subscription, you may need to sign up again in the space above where the free booklet is offered.  That is the space for emaill subscription sign up. For those who have notified me of the issue, thank you so much for staying in touch and calling this to my attention!  I appreciate all of you.
  2. If you are reading this on Facebook, and you want to be rude, just remember IF YOU CAN”T SAY SOMETHING NICE, don’t say it at all.  I will not hide constructive criticism, but name calling is inappropriate and juvenile.  I do not know why Facebook seems to be the platform for venom. Our society today has a rude and ugly problem. I so hope it will go away.
