Wearing White After Labor Day… taking my Summer Maxi Dresses into Fall

white maxi for fall with  bown accessoris and sjp big hair

What I’m Wearing This outfit was from last week when I did my hair tutorial
* White maxi dress {love} by Isabel Lu from GILT a while ago -found it in Moss Piperlime!
* Victoria’s Secret open cardigan… seriously still my faves.
* Asos boyfriend belt which is on sale now for $10.98
* Vintage and new brass & gold bangles & brass hoop earrings
* Kenneth J Lane pear necklace
* Abarcas leather sandals from Spain
* Kooba “Johnny” bag in brown {courtesy of Kooba} I love this bag really, it’s so easy to throw everything in.

* Hair: SJP wild and curly and BIG hair – TUTORIAL HERE

The husband and I are now part owners of a little Day Spa in the valley… and yes, it’s insanely crazy! While he’ll be more hands-on & at the spa, I will be taking care of redecorating and getting it on the interwebs, i.e. social media extravaganza. This morning we’re meeting there so i can take a look around and snap “before” photos and get a feel for what needs to be done and how I’d like to reinvent it. I’m excited… we’re excited… it’s a new adventure… but it’s also a bit scary too! So I hope you don’t mind me sharing the process of it all with you here, because how can I not really? xoxox

    thanks for a cool hub. Up on fashion! yay. We grew up with that thought too, that white after labor day wasnt okay. Sign of the new day dawning. White all year round is fine with me. I wear my tank tops all year round too under things. And I get away with waterproof shoes for most of the year too. Even on winter days! hooray for no boots! Although some days, I have to wear boots. Blizzards call for them. I agree blizzards BEG for boots! I, however, am a HUGE boot fan and even wrote a hub about it! Check it out! Have a good one!
