White & Prints for Labor Day

Fashion continues to evolve and form it’s own set of rules throughout time. Two of the most commonly known misconceptions are ‘No white after Labor Day’ and ‘Don’t Mix Patterns’. With no factual detail of why these two rules have came to be, it’s safe to say that you can dress in all white with little to no qualms or pair stripes with leopard if you’d like this weekend. Besides, why should you let the climate control your color selection? I mean the climate can determine your style but definitely not your color preference.  Take charge, baby girl! Don’t conform to the style constraints of others. Just don’t pair plaid with polka dots; you won’t be able to forgive yourself.

On that note, here are four outfits inspired by two of our favorite bloggers; FashionToast and TheBlondeSalad for the upcoming holiday:

As a person in love, how would you want your love to be defined, concretely?
And how can you declare your boundless love?
How about a raw diamond? A rough diamond, to be exact.
