the beautiful things

{things i wore} metal-embellished sandals


No white after Labor Day? These photos were taken the weekend prior to the holiday that unofficially ends summer but the question still lingers. Apparently the rule was an early 20th-century high-society thing–wardrobes changed as the rich left warmer-climate resorts to return to chilly city-life–that has stuck for decades as one of fashion's most famous mandates. Of course it wasn't always that important to everyone: Coco Chanel wore white suits all year round (and I for one am not going to argue with her).

What do you think? Do you continue to include white into your wardrobe after Labor Day?
