White before Labor Day

Hi all! Wow, how is it Thursday already? This week is flying! I'm looking forward to the 3-day weekend ahead...we're only three weeks into school but I could already use a day off. This past Sunday I pulled out my token cute, white dress to wear before Labor Day comes. While I don't really follow the fashion "rule" of no white after Labor Day, I figured I'd go ahead and wear it at least once before the holiday came around. It really is more of a summer dress...I'm wondering if somehow I could winterize it a bit...hmm. Anyhow, here's what I wore:

-Sunrise Shirt Dress-Anthropologie
-Weave & Plait Belt-Anthropologie
-BP "Berty" Sandal-Nordstrom
-Extender Slip-Quincee's Boutique (UT Boutique)
-Necklace-Shabby Apple
-Bracelets-Nordstrom (BP)
-Ring-Pree Brulee

I didn't love the accessories I used for this outfit...I'll have to work on those for the next time I wear the dress. I was in a hurry trying to get myself and the kids out the door for church so this was as good as it got at the time. =)

It's Thursday, so that means Project Runway!!! I'm not sure who my clear favorite is yet...I have a few that I like. We'll see how it all pans out.

Have a great day!


  1. Oh I wanted this dress so badly but when it went on sale in stores here the only one left in my size had a huge stain on it. Bummer! Looks amazing on you!

  2. This dress was one of my favorite purchases this year. It looks fab on you! I had to get the white and black and I wear them all.the.time. So cute and so fun to wear.

    Sumerilla -- I see it on popback quite often -- right now there is a 4 and a 6 showing in my wishlist in both white and black!

  3. I'm back to school one day and already could use a day off LOL...I love this white dress, so pretty! And I'm super psyched for PR too!

  4. Oh I love this dress on you and I NEED one of those slips! Where in Utah is that boutique?

  5. I think it was in Provo but they just moved to American Fork I think. If you're on Facebook you can look them up there under "Quincee's Boutique". I've never been to the actual store...just done over the phone charges a few times.

  6. L-O-V-E this dress on you. It looks so fresh. I bet it is comfy too.

  7. I love that dress -- really sad I missed out on it! I have frantically been wearing all of my white skirts and dresses, too!

  8. You look like a dream in that dress. I say we can wear white in this area longer for sure as we get the Indian summer weather. I usually go till Nov if I can.

  9. I never understood the 'no white after Labor Day' rule. I think with the right accessories this dress could be worn for fall. I really love the pairing of the shoes with the white!

  10. I adore this little white dress! My mom was recently on a holiday and she bought the same dress for me! Lucky me, it was all alone in the sale room and she happened to spot it :) I, too, am trying to figure out how to make it fall appropriate. I think it can be done, but the only draw back is that I can't wear a cardigan over it because the sleeves are so puffy! Can't wait to get some ideas from you :)

  11. I love this dress! I think you could totally wear it into fall just pair it with jewel tones and boots!
