Wearing White Before Memorial Day

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Hello friends, are you ready – this is it – the first official weekend of the summer – woohoo.  The sun is shining, the temps are rising and I am ready to be outdoors until late into the evening.  

This afternoon we will be heading over to the Bob Carpenter Center at the University of Delaware to see our son graduate from the CLSC Program and I am so excited!!!

CLSC stands for Career and Life Studies Certificate. CLSC is a two-year, nonresidential certificate program at the University of Delaware for students with intellectual disabilities (ID). CLSC provides integrated academic, career/technical and independent living instruction in preparation for gainful employment. CLSC students attend classes, participate in internships and work experiences, and engage in all aspects of campus life.  

Keep an eye out on my Instagram and Facebook pages to see our smiling faces!  Speaking of which, if you saw the pic of my #OOTD on Monday you would have known that I wore white shoes and carried a white purse which according to old fashion rules is a no-no!  

would you wear white before Memorial Day

Do you still adhere to the “no white before Memorial Day” rule – or is it alright to wear white right after Easter?  This skirt is a recent purchase from Ross and initially I was going to pair it with a different top, but with all the rain we had this month I decided to wear it instead with a crisp white shirt.

Then after looking deeper into my closet, I said, hey what the heck and grabbed these white sandals and purse.  I was comfy all day and with just a few pops of orange this outfit really made the start of my week less dreary.

So are you ready, will you be heading to the beach or the shore or just hanging at home with family and friends?  Whatever, you decide to do – be safe and have fun.

  1. White is all year around now but there are shades of it for the seasons. My only throw back rule is I can’t bear to wear white shoes until close to Memorial Day 🙂

    1. I was going to wait on the shoes as well but thought hey, YOLO!

      1. Fashion has become pretty much as you make it.

  2. I really don’t know what the big deal is about not wearing white before Memorial Day. The only reason why I don’t wear white in cold weather is because it doesn’t absorb heat.

    1. Yes, I don’t even know the story behind the fashion, but I have worn white in the winter just not anything too lightweight in the fabric – white corduroy is fine.

  3. The white myth died awhile back in Florida and you are well dressed for the board meeting my dear. Enjoy your weekend and a hearty Congrats to the graduate.

    1. Oh yes, if I lived in Florida or any tropical region I would be wearing white all year ling. Thank you and enjoy the holiday weekend as well.

  4. Congrats to the graduate!! So happy for him and you…XO!

    P.S. LOVE the outfit. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you, it was an exciting day. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend lil sis.

  5. I wear white year around. I don’t follow rules.

    1. You go gurl – make your own rules!

  6. I’m a rule breaker…white is year round for me. I don’t think that it is such a bad thing to coordinate an outfit with the best colors for the look. You look great!

    1. Thank you Gloria – I love a rebel with a style! Have an awesome week my dear.

    I’m so glad we’re over that white only at certain times—I think it’s such a clean, fun color (or lack of color!!)

    1. So true – lack of color which goes with anything anytime of the year!

  7. I wear white whenever I feel like it. You look good. I love the skirt!

    1. Thank you Nerline, I have to agree and thanks for stopping by to comment. Enjoy the rest of your week.

I love reading your comments!
