Lookbook: rule breaker





vest, shirt, belt, heels, & bangles : f21; skirt: vintage; necklace: gifted

do you wear white after labor day?  i unintentionally broke this long-time rule and only realized it when i was looking through these pictures.  but to be honest with you, i love wearing white in the winter fall.  it's kind of like a breath of fresh air.  actually, i love wearing white in general.  something really simple and serene about it.

it's funny, i feel like fashion now-a-days is all about breaking the once strictly enforced fashion rules:
*black and brown don't match (or black and navy)*
*don't wear red lipstick during the day*
*your shoes, bags, and belts must all match*
*black nail polish is for "goths"*
*don't mix your metals*

while i wish i still lived in an era where girls cared more about their outward appearance , i love that now fashion is more fun.  one day you can channel Ralph Lauren with a preppy look and the next you could go boho...the rules are meant to be broken!

  5. love the look! i don't believe in "no white after labor day". I think it was a rule created by people who know nothing about fashion. white is an all-year color!
