I was raised by a mother who considered wearing white after Labor Day a fashion faux pas, and I never seemed to know why.

Fun fact: This rule derived from the 1800's to differentiate old money from new money in the social hierarchy. Once Labor Day was deemed a national holiday, this day would signify the end of summer fashion to fall fashion. 

You know what I say now? Out with the old and in with the new! This rule can definitely go out the window since the Texas summer heat likes to linger longer than it should (sometimes even into the end of October!). On this day, I decided to beat the heat not only in white, but also, in a white dress. I have to make sure I that I can escape the heat in every way possible, and this breathable shirtdress was that piece! If you don't feel like this silhouette is best for your body type, take a peek at these. And remember, this rule was made to be broken!
