The Rules of September

What do you do on a hot September morning when the sky is as blue as the ocean and the breeze is still warm? You thumb your nose at the rules of September and wear white; all white. 


This week I took a page out of my friend Jan's book and wore a dress with jeans underneath. I bought this white lace dress last year at Marshall's for $19.99 and i only wore it once because it's a little too short, even for a petite flower like me. So I decided it was worth trying with my white Chico's jeans and the effect is a bit referential to a pantsuit. Still, I think it looks okay. Because it is a lace dress shortening it to top length just isn't feasible so it's a "wear it this way or thrift it situation. What do you think? 

The accessories are very basic, just a string of purple beads, my purple skull wrap bracelet, and purple watch. The inimitable floral sequined Shi shoes round out the outfit. 

Linking up with Patti at Visible Monday, Monday Mingle, Fashionista Style Hop, Jane for Shiny T Tuesday and Anne for 52-pick-me-up.  Be sure you come back on Tuesday because I've got a nice surprise and an awesome giveaway coming your way.
