White After Labor Day?!?

Black + White | Everybody, Everywear

Madison Blazer: Goodwill $5 - H&M Sweater: Goodwill $3.75 - NY&CO Skirt 
Eternity Scarf (JC Penny) - George Tights - Nine West Pumps

A few weeks ago,  The Fashionista Next Door posted a picture of Sweet Caroline in the City on Twitter that made me jump up and immediately head into my closet to recreate this look. The weather has still been mild in NC so I've just been waiting for the temperature to drop so that I could debut this outfit. I really love this look! I'm on the hunt for some thrifted shooties/booties but until I find a pair this outfit was work appropriate with a classic pump. I'm still hanging on to my red OPI O'Hare & Nails Look Great manicure from homecoming, a perfect compliment to black/white you've seen before. When I purchased this skirt over the summer, I never imagined that I would be able to transition it to a fall/winter look. I'm a southern girl who has been taught to never wear white after Labor Day or before Easter. Well, some rules are meant to broken (just don't tell my mama)!


  1. woot woot! This turned out sooo cute! I love it. Rules are definiltey meant to be broken and with the black tights, I think it totally works. Great job!

  2. Love your thrifted blazer! I host a thrifting link up every Thursday and would love for you to stop by and show off your finds!

  3. Wonderful B&W outfit! Booties would definitely work well with this look.

  4. Yes, girl, white after Labor Day! That is what I love most about fashion... we are all free to interpret and style it in our own way. Not to mention, love all the thrifting. Will you please come visit my blog? I am brand new on the block. I also went with black tights/white dress!
