White After Labor Day

The adjustment back to real life after a long weekend is always a hard one.  Weekends aren't long enough to begin with, and then you get the taste of a little more and you just wish it would keep going and going!  The good thing about my schedule is I get a short week leading up to a holiday weekend, that means a regular week afterwards though, can't win 'em all.

Do you follow the old rule of not wearing white after Labor Day?  Not me!  I love how fresh and clean wearing white feels, and though I wear it after Labor Day I've found that I don't tend to wear it that much into the fall and winter.  My mission this year to to tie it into my wardrobe as the seasons change and see what I can create.

Ever since Karly @ Miss in the Midwest shared her awesome kimono she scored at TJ Maxx I have been on the hunt for one of my own.  I was seeing them pop up all over blogland, but every time I would step foot in store they were no where to be found.  Then I started to see a few, but with really long dangly fringe, I wasn't feeling it with the fringe.  And then one day it happened.  I stopped in Marshalls and I found my kimono, on the clearance rack nonetheless! 

I love all of the colors it has and I love that it will transition nicely into fall.  It's such and easy way to dress up an outfit and make a casual tank and shorts look a little more special.
