It's Friday! It's Friday!  Does anyone have anything amazing planned?  It's supposed to rain here in CO but there are a few festivals this weekend and I hope the rain holds off so we can go!  Yes, I said it - Fall Festivals!  Something about walking around with hot cider in hand and a caramel covered apple while wearing a great pair of boots and a chunky scarf.... ahh I love it! 

And can we talk about this coat... the leather sleeves make me swoon!  Also it has a hood so if they are calling for rain, I'm totally prepared.  Thank you TJ Maxx!


White After Labor Day {transition to night look}

Jeans:ae (similar here)// Dress worn as a blouse: thrifted (similar here)// Heels: thrifted (similar here)//
Clutch: old navy (similar here)// Fur collar: thrifted (similar here)

When taking white distressed skinnies from day to night, you simply swap the bomber jacket for a flowy feminine emerald green blouse (worn as a dress here), change your booties for a great pair of patent leather pointy toed heels, and ditch the baseball cap for a fur collar... Voila!

I never follow fashion rules these days... you know "no white after labor day", "don't wear black & blue together or brown & black together", "don't wear plaid with stripes" yeah, you know the rules I'm talking about!  In fact, I figured my next two posts I would should not only how to wear white after labor day, but even transitioning your white look from day to a night. {night time look coming tomorrow... but follow on instagram here and get the sneak peek!!}

So bye bye fashion rules, its the 21st century and we do what we want!

Does anyone else own a of pair of liquid leggings and are as excited as I am to wear them all fall long?!  If you don't, you must get a pair!  They are a perfect staple and they give your outfit just the right amount of subtle style!  I bought this pair a couple years back from Express but you can find similar pairs from Target or Windsor Store... really you can find them anywhere!  So get on it ladies!  And if you've already styled a pair this season, link to it in your comment I'd love to see what ya did!
