Breaking the Rules

Sometimes rules are made to be broken, especially fashion rules.  Honestly, fashion rules are the most fun to break because that's one of the best ways to show your individual style (hello pattern mixing and leopard and camo as neutrals!).  I've not honored the "don't wear white after Labor Day" rule in quite some time. Would I wear a white linen sundress, a pair of super strappy white sandals or carry a white straw bag after Labor Day?  Probably not.  Would I wear white jeans, a white sweater or white tennis shoes? Yep! Absolutely! I actually have this pair of white jeansthis lace-up sweater and these kicks as part of my fall shopping list.  The espadrilles I'm wearing in today's post have become go-to's and I'm not ready to retire them for the fall yet and the tank is a great basic that works well alone or layered under a kimono, like I did here, or under a vest, cardigan or denim jacket as the temps drop.
