I remember being relatively young, and someone telling me that I shouldn’t be wearing my white shoes to church in the fall. As I was young, I was confused. Wouldn’t the white of my shoes beautifully compliment the white of the snow? That line of logic is obviously flawed, and I don’t particularly like wearing white shoes in the snow anymore. But, this was the first time I was told not the wear white after labor day.
If there’s anything I’ve learned over the years, it’s that there are no solid rules when it comes to fashion or the ways you should dress. I’m absolutely horrified now, looking back, that my outfit of choice ten years ago was a tank top over a t shirt, with gauchos and platform foam flipflops. Despite my horror, tank tops over t shirt is coming BACK(hopefully not for very long).
All of this is to say, not wearing white after labor day is ridiculous. Own it. Wear white! Here are a few of my favorite ways to wear white after Labor day:
White pants in the fall is the fashion taboo we like to run away from. Which is no fun. White pants are cute and deserve to make appearances in seasons other than spring. The only thing keeping me from wearing white pants is the abundance of baby spit up in my life. 😉

My biggest struggle wearing white is not the fashion faux pas, but the fact that I’m a mom. And being a mom can get pretty messy. It’s definitely easier to incorporate a white top into your fall wardrobe than white pants. It can be dressed up or down. And you can always throw on a jacket to hide the coffee stains. I’m the only one? Okay.
