Sequins and Sea Breezes: Miami Chic

White Lace Dress

Ok, so I know it's an unwritten fashion rule that wearing white after Labor Day is a no-no but let's be real. Those rules were made back in the day where you only wore black to funerals and women weren't supposed to wear jeans at all so I'm making it my rule that I'm going to rock white all year long. And let's be real, when you're in Miami it doesn't matter what time of year it is, it's always acceptable to wear white!
This dress was actually the last dress I wore out in Miami when I was there last month and I seriously don't remember the last time I got so many compliments on an outfit! I knew I had to wear at least one all white outfit while I was in South Beach since everything on South Beach is white, black and white or white and blue. I really wish I would have had more time in South Beach to explore and take more pictures of the gorgeous Art Deco architecture while I was there! I honestly never had a huge desire to visit South Beach before this work trip but now that I've been there I will definitely be going back... but mainly for the food. Ok, now back to the outfit! I am obsessed with the different cutouts on this dress giving it texture to the all white. I usually don't buy a lot of things from H&M due to the quality but this dress doesn't feel or look at all like something you would normally get at H&M. The material is much heavier and even the back zipper is stitched in different. I topped off my look with my Jeffrey Campbell wedges of course. I could seriously walk for miles in those shoes which is a good thing since I did! What do you think about wearing white after Labor Day?

  11. I love your white dress and wedge sandals. I don't believe in this no white after labor day rule. So outdated. I wore my little white summer dresses 2x last week in NYC because it was so warm with my strappy high heel sandals and flat sandals. White jeans I wear anytime in fall or winter as long as there is no rain or snow on the ground. Weather controls my wardrobe not Labor Day.

  19. You're totally right that you need to wear white when in Miami, and I'm 100% with you about being able to wear white after Labor Day! I'm thinking that maybe white jeans will still be on rotation during this winter!

  24. That is seriously the perfect outfit for South Beach! I love it and agree it doesn't look like something you'd normally get at H&M! You look beautiful (and tan!) in it, of course!

  25. I read that the "white after Labor Day" rule was only started by women from "old money" families. They thought they were superior to "new money" women, so they made up little fashion rules to set themselves apart.

  26. YES to white after Labor Day, especially in warm climates! This looks so stunning on you and I can't believe it is H and M! The lines on it are amazing!

  28. SUCH a cute dress. I love the neckline and the t-shirt style with the skin showing. It makes the tan POP. I personally wouldn't wear an all white dress in October because I live in New England and it wouldn't feel right to me. But I wouldn't say it's because of the rule. In Florida, anything goes!

  31. So so chic girl! Before I went to Miami this past summer I didn't have a huge desire to go, but now I can't wait for the next time I visit. Wearing white after labor day is totally acceptable, especially in South Beach! Love those wedges and totally loving the oversized sunnies more and more on you girl!
