White for Fall

Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

I saw a lot of posts at the end of last week about how it was people’s last chance to wear white before Labor Day. And, as usual, a lot of questions about whether or not those of us reading continue to wear white afterward.

Well, I totally keep wearing white after Labor Day. Here’s proof:

I actually saw a girl in my office building wearing a very similar outfit last week but she had on a flared skirt, not a pencil skirt. Both versions are cute, it just depends on which style you prefer to wear.

I liked the mix of brown and black and, of course, mixing leopard print with stripes. And, of course, it reminds me of an outfit I wore almost two years ago now that also included brown, black, leopard and white.  So, clearly my tastes haven’t changed that much.

Also, in case you’re curious, I rode a Divvy bike home from work on the day I wore this. But, I changed into workout capris and flats. I still haven’t figured out if it’s possible to ride a bike in a pencil skirt. Have any of you tried it?

    I don’t think I own any white bottoms but I would definitely not let a calendar tell me when I could wear them if I did. I do own white shoes and wear them whenever I feel like it. 😉
    I love the white pencil skirt and this entire outfit (even if I personally don’t own any leopard print items and likely never will).

    I think whoever came up with the “No white after Labor Day” rule lived in a magical environment where summer weather actually ended with the unofficial end of summer. Since that’s definitely not the case around here, I’m all for white after Labor Day…especially since I’ve worn white twice this week 😛

      I think I read somewhere it had something to do with rich people….or something. I could probably look it up. I’m sure Google knows. Regardless, I’m in agreement with you!

    I’ve read a few articles about fashion “rules” that are no longer considered rules, and wearing white after Labor Day was consistently one of them. Although, I do giggle at how some white dress pants are marketed in the wintertime as “winter white.” It’s all about perspective, right?

    Love the mixture of denim with the animal print and stripes!
