Outfit: White Pleated Dress

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

Welcome back from the weekend....well, extended weekend. I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day! I had so much fun....whoo hoo! I have pics that I can't wait to share with you all from the events I attended at the Tom Joyner Family Reunion. It was awesome and I am ashamed to say that it occurs yearly in my city and this was the first time I have ever gone.....SMH. Anyhew, as soon as I edit the photos I will post them on the blog.

On Labor Day, I spent time with the family, per usual, and I must say that the rest of the week will be prison style food portions for me because I was such a fattie! Good grief. I'm so glad I don't live back home anymore. I have changed my dietary habits significantly but my people are a tad slower than me, lol. But I'm proud of them for changing as well. Maintaining good health is a priority. I don't like how I looked in this cute little white dress below but once I had it on, I was committed so you know it wasn't coming off! Every Labor Day I wear white, not to signify the end of "wearing white season", but just because the fashion experts who insist that wearing white after Labor Day is a big no no. They are so dramatic! By the way, I'm going to wear white the rest of the week as well, lol.



Bought this little number a couple of months ago. I'm getting better with closet storing.....seriously!





Simple look I know.....but I hope you don't mind because it was hot as heck!!!!



Love the gentle pleats and buttons. I should pair with a sailor's hat, blue bag and red oxfords next time I wear it, LOL.

that dress is really cute! I definitely dont care about the not wearing white after labor day trend, thats so wack. I'll wear what I want when I want ya feel me? lol Glad you enjoyed your weekend!
That dress looks gorgeous on you, you definitely rocking it. You inspire us so much... We don't pay attention to the rule too, we've been shopping a lot of winter whites lately.

Love that you're still wearing white during and after Labor Day! I'm pretty much sticking to my own rule of wearing what I want! Great post!

Cute dress!! I dig the minimal styling it's a dress that can carry it's own.

That dress is adorable. Good decision to keep it on.
I had a three day weekend and did absolutely nothing, but paint my toenails and loved it!
