winter white














jacket  thrifted
cardigan  yoon
dress  vintage
purse  vintage from bohemian bisoux
brooches  vintage
tights  asos
shoes  thrifted

A bit of winter white always makes me think of that dumb "no white after Labor Day" rule, which I never really understood because I tend to crave the color year round. This particular white frock was found on my last trip home to San Francisco and I think it works just as nicely with my favorite rusty tights as it will with bare legs and sandals when the weather turns warm again. Although that won't be happening any time soon! I've been slowly but surely adding to my arsenal of true winter gear, something I never had to worry much about in California. People keep saying that this winter is going to be a doozy and I'm secretly hoping it is, just so I can say that my first east coast winter was a legitimate one. Good thing there are hot chocolate shakes at Franklin Fountain to keep me going...

I love your dress! I rarely wear white, I don't dare with my oh-so-mucky daughter. But I've never associated it as white winter, I'll have to give it a go soon, Thank you!

So glad to hear I'm not the only one doesn't get that silly 'no white after labour day' rule. White, well.. it's just so right

By the way, those brooches are driving me crazy. So sweet.

Loving that full skirt on you!

I never understood the Labor Day rule either! It makes no sense to exclude one color out of your wardrobe for half a year! Especially one that goes with everything! Love the way you paired the denim with the dress!
