Wardrobe Wednesday: White After Labor Day

You can take the girl out of San Diego,
but you can't take San Diego out of the girl.

Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day?

The sidewalks are still spotted with snow.

My desktop weather gadget
reads a brisk 21 degrees
at the moment.

Just had to get out from under that drab dark wardrobe
that a frigid, wintery climate can bring out.

My love affair with stripes continues.
(pardon the blur...
camera operator error)

Layer #1:
Striped cotton tee over white button down

Layer #2
Add one teenaged daughter's sweater

Don't forget the leg warmers
in weather like this.

Layer #3:
Eddie Bauer First Ascent 365 Down-light Sweaters
*See more about jacket, here.

So would you agree?
White in February
big fat no no?

Let's here it. I can take it...


  1. white in feb... great question. i feel like it's more dependent on the fabric and what the piece actually is... like if it's not season-less enough, it becomes problematic. but i like the high boots, and the layers... i think they winterize the white denim :)

  2. Gee, thanks Ann. Love the comment and your thoughts behind it. Well said, friend. Glad to see you made it back! Hopefully I'll see you again tomorrow. :)

  3. I had a bathing suit and flip flops on at the beach on Monday, so I'm probably not the person to ask since I live in San Diego. I also wear my white jeans with brown boots during the winter. No leg warmers required here. I think the East Coast is a little more stringent on the seasonal fashion rules? Unleash your rebel side and break some more fashion do's and don'ts Wendy!

  4. I'll call it "winter" white! I agree with Shannon...fashion rules aren't as strict here. However, my sister, who lives in New Jersey, rotates her wardrobe for every season. Looking into buying some white denim...any suggestions?

  5. Love white. Feels crisp & clean. And, I have a weakness for stripes, too.
