After Labor Day


When it comes to fashion. I don't follow rules. Sorry people. Mostly I don't follow them because I don't understand them. And then another... mostly I don't follow them because I do what I want. The biggest one I don't follow is wearing white after labor day. I tried to find out where that rule originated from to see if there really was a reason... but the only thing I could find was this - "While no one is completely sure exactly when or why this fashion rule came into effect, our best guess is that it had to do with snobbery in the late 1800s and early 1900s." 

So I pick the "who cares?" button and roll on. I like white pants. And since they are always on sale after labor day. I am going to roll with it. I guess the only thing I have to worry about now is getting chocolate milk spilled on me like Drew Barrymore... (Never Been Kissed anyone? Okay, just me?) Because that has actually happened to me in high school. That was horrifying. 

So these photos, I was lucky enough to do a photo shoot with my friend Ashley last week. She is the owner and photographer for Ashley Eliza Photography. Currently she is booking mini-sessions at a killer deal. $60 for 30 minutes and a CD with  15-20 images. Just in time for the awesome fall colors coming on. Her work is stunning - you can check it out here.

and book your fall mini session! 
You'll be seeing more of her work over the next couple weeks on the blog. She is a doll and super easy to work with. She didn't even make fun of my for my white on white. Do you wear white after labor day? What fashion rules do you break? Any rules you think need to be made?

You are so gorgeous! I almost bought those exact shoes at the mall awhile ago!
Also I love the white pants! I used to own some and then I sat in dog poop while wearing them. I've never bought white pants again. But one day I will...

Great shots!! I agree. Wear white after Labor Day. Wear whatever you want. The only rule is that there are no rules.
