Would you wear white before Memorial Day?

Posted on May 9, 2014

The number of fashion rules that I follow is steadily decreasing as I get older (dark navy is almost black, right?) One rule that I obediently follow is “no white before Memorial day.” This goes back to childhood when I clearly remember my mom telling me I couldn’t wear my new white shoes to church until after Memorial Day (no Easter whites for you). Maybe it is a Southern thing? My current theory is: If you have just come back from a Spring vacation in a tropical land and you want to wear your summer whites to show of your sun kissed skin, do it!! I will be waiting in the wings until my pale (almost purple) skin has seen the light. Which probably won’t…
