The rules of no white after Labor Day are long forgotten and since it’s taking a lot longer for the spring weather to settle in, I decided to pull out my wide leg white denim and take on an all white look. It’s so funny that such a neutral everyday color (lack thereof) used to be such a faux pas. I mean, no one ever says you can’t wear black in the summer. Ivory, egg shell, stark white–they’ve also been kind to me during the summer months. And while you’ll rarely see me accessorizing with a bag or tote (I’m a wallet only kinda girl), I have to say this perfect Pink Gold Lipault Paris Backpack is a summer must-have. It’s small enough not to be cumbersome, but roomy enough to fit everything you need for a day of shopping or on the beach. Gone are the days when pink gold was only worn around your neck or on your ears. The color has become a serious statement in the apparel and accessory industries. And despite what some may think, it has also become quite a neutral for the summer. At one time, metallics and shimmer used to be considered flashy or “over the top”, now they’re just as necessary as your nude pumps or black clutch. Don’t wait around for the weather, just dress like it’s already spring and the sunshine will follow ( I hope)!
