The temperatures have finally begun to drop, and I cannot contain my excitement! I did the honors of breaking in my new winter boots (a bit prematurely) to celebrate the nice weather.

Wearing White After Labor Day

Everyone has heard the age old rule “you can’t wear white after labor day”. Ever wonder why there is (or was) a social rule placed on colors and clothing? This rule (more like societal trend) came about at the turn of the twentieth century. Wealthy women believed that it was not acceptable to wear white (which is meant for cooler temps) when the season of summer officially ended. Once labor day came into effect in 1882, high society decided this would be the official end of summer, therefore the end of white clothing.

I am so excited to share this maxi skirt with y’all! I mean, just look at it! The twirly factor alone makes this skirt amazing. Let me just tell you, it is SO comfortable and looks even better in person. I have been on the lookout for an amazing maxi with large polka-dots. I shopped around my favorite spots and could not find anything I REALLY liked. Not only did I want a fabulous polka-dot maxi, but I wanted it to be affordable. C’mon guys! I’m a teacher. I am not about to drop $100 on a skirt.

Currently I am switching my closet out for fall (meaning I am moving all my tanks and shorts to the back and pushing jeans, sweaters, and long sleeved tops to the front). I love this time of year! It may not be cold just yet, but reorganizing my closet gives me that “fall feeling”. I know i’m not the only one ready for the change of season! I already decorated my house with pumpkins and fall leaves despite it still feeling like summer outside. I cannot forget that pumpkin spice candle in the kitchen (I know, very “basic” of me).
