Oct 16th, White After Labor Day?

Off white pants are totally appropriate after Labor Day!

While I love black and white together, this seems a little dull!

Good morning- happy Sunday! My hubby and I had a date last night, so I am actually going to post what I wore out with him- rather than my Sunday outfit. I’m playing tennis this morning, and then spending the rest of my day cleaning my house- so you probably don’t want to see that outfit!

A lot of people wonder about the whole white after Labor Day thing- and according to Tim Gunn, it’s ok! And in my book- he is the expert! I think the secret is to not wear stark white, these pants are a little creamy white (hard to tell in the photos). The other secret is to wear closed toe shoes- so you don’t look like you’re trying to still be in summer mode!

On the right I’ve paired my trousers with a black t shirt and black heels. I love black and white together, but this is just too boring.

To spice things up a bit, I’ve added my cropped trench coat, added a necklace and changed my shoes for these cute leopard heels. Ready to go hit the town!

Have a great day!

The cropped trench is a great alternative for a cardigan or blazer.

Pants: Express, T shirt: Nordstroms, Trench: H&M, Necklace: Forever 21, Leopard Shoes: DSW

  1. Love the H&M trench! I bought it last week. For some reason I can’t get the nerve up to buy the leopard shoes – I’ve tried them on several times.

    • It took me a long time to get up the nerve to buy the leopard shoes! Now I have 2 paris, flats and heels and I am SO glad I bought them. They take an ordinary outfit and add that little extra something. I say go for it! I bought my heels at DSW for about $60- so not too expensive. I actually saw a pair of Franco Sarto wedges at Marshalls yesterday- they were darling.
      Good luck- and as always, thanks so much for commenting!

  2. Excellent…so cute! and you know that I adore the leopard heels! They totally give the outfit that extra bit of panache! Hope you had a great time on your date!
