Topshop white skirt, similar here & here

I think white has quickly become my favorite color to wear. Sure, that age old rule clearly states that white after Labor Day is a faux pas, but I love breaking that one. Some rules are just too stuffy to follow!  We associate darker shades for Fall and Winter, pastels and brights for Spring and Summer. I can see where that stems from, and I admit to following this pattern year after year, but it's so predictable! I feel like every year is the same routine. How about we all just wear what makes us happy, and re-think these so-called style rules? Isn't that a novel idea!

And for the record, my weekend was much better this time around. We had dinner with friends, went to a movie, ate some delicious food at a Greek festival, and got some much needed sleep. We also planned our road trip up north that we have coming up on November 6th. So far we have Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, Solvang, Monterey, and San Fransisco squeezed into five days. More on that in another post :)


  1. I agree! To heck with the rules! Your outfit is amazing! So glad your weekend was better this time around :) That road trip sounds so fun! We used to go to Pismo beach a lot when I was a kid to ride four wheelers :) I love Monterey. We got to Capitola every year for our anniversary and some years we make a detour to Monterey for the day :)


  2. Totally thought this was a dress...fits you perfectly!! Love it!

  3. When I saw this necklace on your IG, I fell in love!! So pretty. :) And your upcoming road trip sounds like so much fun!! I can't wait to see pictures.

  4. I don't normally, but I wore white yesterday :)

  5. Love this look and the beautiful light colors. I always say if you like it wear it, who cares about the rules. :)

  6. Thank you ladies! If black is appropriate all year round, then white should be as well. It's a neutral after all! And I love white in the Winter - looks so chic with burgundy, grey, camel, and black.

  7. Love that you are still wearing white in the fall...I think it looks so fresh!

  8. Rules, schmules. A great outfit is in style any time of year. I love this outfit and I'm actually impressed you were able to keep your dress clean through Greek food! LOL. I admire how you really make smart purchases that are versatile and blend so well with your wardrobe like the jacket and shoes!
