First, let me explain that Labor Day is a holiday to really celebrate the contributions and labor of many associations who fought hard for various labor rights, their achievements and accomplishments. Labor Day has a very storied past and did not come without a fight and people actually protested for 8-hour workdays (which it were more like five).
So, though I appreciate the tributes that were made to all of our service men and women, I must insist that we become more knowledgeable about the various holidays we celebrate and why. You can almost obtain a degree online via YouTube and Google alone. So, make sure you study and get in the know. Just a quick side note.
Now, I have always wondered why people would insist that one not wear any white after Labor Day in preparation for the fall and winter and as I’ve learned, it is simply a tradition that was started to signify the end of summer in many parts of America and was also a way to separate the Haves from the Have Nots. And, I must say, it is one of those beliefs that is heavily ingrained in the soil we walk on. My mother is a big believer that wearing white during this season is a no-no.
Though the rule has become a bit more relaxed over time, it is still a mystery as we are permitted (using this loosely) to wear winter white and off white if it is in the appropriate material. Many fashion designers offer white as part of their fall and winter lines, often in very dynamic ways. In warmer climates such as Nevada or Florida, I believe white is more acceptable to wear year round, since unfavorable winter weather is not an issue.
I believe everyone should do, be and wear whatever they desire in order to be happy. But, there is a classy way to wear white and I must insist we all learn how it should be done. I have a special board on Pinterest showing just how this can be done.
Now, break the rules, live your life and wear some white! But please, no white pumps if you can help it 😉
