Happy Labor Day!

Today is such a special day not only because it's the unofficial "last day of summer", but because it's my husband's, Eddie, birthday! He's the man behind the lens and the man inside my heart, so I plan on spending the day doing whatever he wants to do on his day, even if that means I have to watch sports all day :) 

So you know that rule "no white after Labor Day?" Well, that's definitely a rule meant to be broken! White is a neutral, therefore it should be treated as such and be worn all year long; but there is something we must know about this "color" before we can get enough use out of it. We all know that black conceals "problem" areas, but do we also know that white highlights those same areas? This doesn't mean that if you feel self conscious about your thighs that you can't wear white pants. The key is to make sure you're selecting the best fit pant and that you're creating an outfit that's fully balanced, so that you don't feel as though the spotlight is on your legs alone. Take a look at the outfit I created, for example. I'm wearing a colored blouse, statement necklace and a bold pump. These three pieces help to create focal points within my outfit that balance out the entire ensemble, causing the eye to move around instead of focusing on one area, my legs. This is a strategy I highly suggest you use when you want to be bold and wear that piece of clothing you always felt you couldn't, because in all reality you can; it's all about how you put it all together with other pieces in your outfit! 

I hope you all found this post helpful and are enjoying the last summer weekend doing things you love. I thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by and I'll see you all tomorrow with another post!
