What I Wore :: To Break The Rules

Whoever started the rumor that you couldn't wear white after Labor Day was a real nutcase. As you can see.... I don't abide by many 'fashion rules'.... and neither should you, if you choose to join my rebel brigade. Well, except for anything related to the banning of JNCO's and neck eating shoulder pads. Those rules will apply until the end of time, don't even try to test those waters. 

Silly rules aside, you can count on this lady wearing a lot of winter white on white. It's crisp, fresh and about as easy to throw on as my 'go-to throw on and run out the door' all black outfit that you'll find me in when I've overslept. That secret is out. 

It's been quite the month of celebrations, big milestones and new adventures. Jumping for joy was in order, as promised. Sure hope November is ready to follow suit.

What I Wore :: To Welcome Fall To The Neighborhood

Part of me wants to leap up and down while flailing my arms and twirling in the street and scream 'welcome fall, you are my favorite season in the whole wide year of seasons..... can you stay forever?'. It would be like one of those epic moments in an 80's film. Then I remember I live in New York, and such antics would classify me as the 'resident crazy' to the neighbors.... and well, we don't want that to happen. Still trying to get them to not judge us for the eight million times our smoke alarm goes off because I can't cook. If you're one of our neighbors and somehow drifted to the end of the internet and found this post.... sorry, I'm learning. I swear.

I'll just admit now, this won't be the last time you hear me preach about my love for fall. This is just the first for the season. The air here in Brooklyn has an added crispness, the leaves are slowly, but surely, changing a few shades and the sun is setting an hour earlier. My mood has drastically changed now that I'm not worrying about what outfit to put together that I won't be dying of heat in and, let's face the facts, layering just makes my day!
