Rules Were Made to be Broken

Before moving to Boston 15 years ago, I lived in south Florida where it is warm all year round and wearing white is always in style.  I remember quite vividly being told by one of my classmates that in Boston white is not to be worn between Labor Day and Memorial Day.  I do tend to live my life within the bounds of most rules, but this is not one of them.  Inspired by Elaine's rule breaking Monday (yes I'm a day late), instead of wearing the blue or tan pants that I pulled out, I wore white.  Yes white.  Before Memorial Day.  I know, it's sinful.  But if wearing white now is wrong, I don't want to be right.

  9. Loved this outfit on you, especially seeing it in person, and I totally think you rocked the white before Memorial Day. Besides, isn't that an outdated notion? And now after catching up on your blog I think I need to head to the STA that you drop your stuff off at to see if I can score any of your great given-up pieces. - Katy
