White Pants: Before & After Labor Day

Hi Friends,

The end of summer is no where in sight for us southerners but the stigma of no white after Labor Day is fast approaching. In the past, the idea of white shoes or pants after the holiday was a serious fashion no-no. Today, however, I think we are realizing how great white pants can be in all four seasons.

While white shoes are hard to pull off in general unless you have a quality pair of leather heels or designer flats, white pants can be worn a multitude of ways.

In today’s post, my outfit is pretty simple. White jeans paired with a flowy denim top from Banana Republic and bright, floral, Guess pumps. I have worn these pants and these heels so many times this summer. Good basics like the denim top and white pants can always be dressed up with a fun pair of heels.

For the fall or winter, I would pair white pants with other neutrals like an oversized beige sweater and booties. You can mix it up however you like, but I think the takeaway here is that white is not banned after the beginning of September.

Do you wear white after Labor Day? Tell me your thoughts!

Hi friends!

A few weeks ago I took my first trip out West to the beautiful state of Colorado. While visiting friends, we spent a lot of time outdoors so I really took advantage of very little makeup, gym clothes, and air dry hair days. 🙂

It. was. awesome.

This post isn’t super fashion related, but I wanted to share my adventure with you all.

I have never seen such flawless beauty in nature. Every place was like a postcard.

One day we hiked in Estes Park at Rocky Mountain National Park and took Trail Ridge Road all the way to the top. Somehow we managed to drive right past a few Elk! It was amazing seeing them so up close.

Another day we went white water rafting on the Poudre River and man, was the water cold! Our guide told us it was around 50 degrees and mostly from the snow melting off the mountains.

After rafting, we didn’t have a place to shower, but we all tried our best to clean up before heading to New Belguim and Odell Brewing Companies in Ft. Collins, Colorado. I am not a huge beer drinker, but I did taste a few that I thought were good!

All in all, the week was so much fun, and I would love to go back as soon as possible. If you are ever looking for an outdoorsy place to vacation, I would definitely recommend Colorado!
