"Nobody wears white after labour day?"
Why? Because I’ve never known what that meant but have heard it often, namely on American sitcoms-I’m sure Rachel said it in friends in one episode, probs a sly dig at Ross and some kind of reference to labour day was probably made in Clueless. Anyway, I finally understand what it means, it's apparently an old age rule that basically means that the colour white is only ever associated with summer and as such should only be worn in said season, labour day denotes the end of summer and soooo nobody is allowed to wear white after that. Ever.
ANYWAAAY-story behind this outfit. I am now the proud owner of all three items and I intend to wear it like this. The jumper was a random purchase and I am going to sound so bratty for saying this but I was conned by the sunshine, I woke up last week and it looked so warm out and thought it was appropriate weather for a t-shirt-WRONG! I got out of my car and brrr, it was cold, so I went into Topshop and saw this cute jumper (which I did have my eye on for quite sometime) so I bought it and it went perfectly with the skirt I happened to be wearing. The shoes are so cute and looked even better in store than they did online and the jeans I’ve had forever. I'm not sure if the items are gonna look as good on me as they do in my head, we shall seeeeee! AND, most importantly, I am abiding by the old age tradition and wearing white when only the rules of American fashion allows-memorial day to labour day*.
