Wearing White before Memorial Day

A new acquaintance recently asked me if I was a "rule breaker."  My answer to her was no, most of the time... unless it is a silly rule.  I went on to explain that I do like to challenge the status quo.  For the most part, I follow rules but also would consider myself a bit of rebel when need  be.  What do I mean by rebel?  If someone tells me there is only one way to do something, I'm all for finding a better and faster way to do it... or shall we say... my way of doing it!!  My daughter gave me a card long ago, which I proudly display on my bulletin board today. See below:  51% Good Girl/ 49% Outlaw.  If you change Outlaw to Rebel... you get the picture.

In my humble opinion, I am a big proponent of wearing white year round.  According to fashion reporters, it began in the 1930’s with the ultra-rich wearing only white in the summer. Light clothing gave the look of leisure, while dark clothing was mostly for working people.  Silly, yes! I am breaking this rule.  Are you?  How do you feel about wearing white year round?  

You may have already seen me wearing all white this spring, or all winter white over the winter.  In these pics, I am wearing Chico's with the exception of the shoes, which are the Limited brand, from Belk.  Unfortunately, the top sold out quickly but I have linked others on LIKEtoKNOW.it, below.  You can find me here for shopping details or below on my Instagram or LTK.it.

My hair looks so yellow in this pic, due to the sun setting!  Purple shampoo... to the rescue!!

So back to the question at hand?  Are you a rebel?  And how are you rebelling?

Most people know the fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg, who revolutionized the feminine wrap dress back in the 70's.  Today, this fierce woman that built a fashion empire is so much more.

These days Diane is embarking on her "third act or her fulfillment phase"... and her mission is to empower women and help them find their strength! You can read more about her recent interview here with Poppy Harlow and Haley Drazin from CNN Money.  The interview is definitely worth watching, reading or listening to.  One big point Furstenberg makes is that "the most important relationship in life is the one we have with ourselves.  It's very important because if you lose yourself, you have nothing."  I love this advice!

DVF has always been one of my favorite designers, and her line has expanded greatly since a rebranding!  I recently found this beautifully detailed blouse and want to share it with you!  Notice the ribbon on the cuffs and down the front.  I believe it is simply spectacular for a simple white blouse.   I paired it with red slacks but you could wear it with anything.
