Well we did actually make it to story group at the library today where the theme was parrots. I should have dressed in something more colorful! Then we headed to LOFT to check out their sale. I picked up a few things including a linen blend skirt that I will mostly likely not debut until I head back to work. Yes I wear linen after labor day. Around here we have temperatures that hover in the 80's in September, right into early fall. I used to be one of those people who started wearing turtlenecks on September 22nd, but now that I've gotten older I figure, why sweat? And why rush the brutal winter? The link for the skirt is here.  I also picked up a couple of tops that I will definitely wear before summer is over and still be able to transition into early fall. Do you faithfully abide by seasonal fashion rules such as no white or linen after labor day, or are you a rule bender?

Here is what I wore today:

Gap Outlet shorts I bought last week. Love them!

Shorts: Gap Outlet
Shirt: H&M (2 years ago)
Shoes: Kenneth Cole Reaction (2 years ago) similar here
Bracelet & Ring: Lia Sophia


  1. I barely abide by ANY fashion rules at all, never mind seasonal ones. :) I say if you like it, wear it!

    Those shorts are adorable on you!

  2. Thanks Melissa! The only rule I stick to around here is open toes after Oct. 1st and that's mainly because it's a work rule. Although I do still sneak a peep toe in there after the 1st :)
