Wearing White BEFORE Memorial Day

20160317-46Helloooooooo Friday or shall we say Fri-YAY! I’m so happy for the weekend and ready for some much needed sleep! I blinked and the week was gone – I mean, I’m not complaining, but I’m beat! I’m starting the weekend off how I like it, with a little Soul Cycle – I fell like I’m cheating in my relationship I’m there so much. I guess its a good addition or bad habit to have right? I digress…..Today is all about wearing white BEFORE Memorial Day. Why you ask? Well, to me there is no rule and you know what, I don’t like rules. 🙂 This white short sleeve hollow sheer dress from SheIn is too good to wait two more months to wear. If the weather calls for it, I’m wearing it!

So this bi-polar Chicago weather has me SERIOUSLY confused. For example, yesterday I went to a meeting at 2pm. As I sat in the back of the Uber I was sweating like a crazy person – the humidity was thick and I could’ breathe. Fast forward two hours and the temperature dropped 20 degrees – It felt like I packed a bathing suit for a trip to Antartica! Come on! You had to be here to believe.

So for as long as I can remember the “no white before Memorial Day” nonsense has always been around. I never understood it – I love nothing more than a crisp white pant in the winter or even early spring. The time of year shouldn’t dictate your fashion schedule! Now, you’re not going to pick your white linen pants over white wool pants in the winter. No, you aren’t, because you shouldn’t even have white linen pants unless you are a metrosexual man from Miami. Too harsh?20160317-47

It’s around this time of year where it’s good to break those habits you created during the winter months – we get lost in the black hole of dreary colors and hibernate all our whites. Well this white short sleeve hollow sheer dress from SheIn is a really great reason to break all the rules and go against the grain – and for $30, you have nothing to loose. The sheer sleeves add texture to the lace dress, and the cutouts add a sweet element of surprise.

Since the weather is still on a crazy spin in Chicago, a coat should always be hand – even if the days starts out at 80 degrees. This camel coat is lightweight enough for those crazy bi-polar days!20160317-50
