Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Are you a WALDO?

Do you have a White After Labor Day Outfit?

*

Growing up I used to hear people say that you should never ever wear white after Labor Day. Growing up we didn’t have many clothes so I probably didn’t have enough white outfits to wear the entire summer let alone carry over past Labor Day.

*

Now the older I get the quicker the seasons seem to change and the larger my wardrobe grows. I don’t know about you, but I never get a chance to wear all of my summer outfits in the summer months. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but September 21st is the actual date so I will continue to wear white until then and maybe perhaps even into Fall.

Hello Friends, I hope you all had a wonderful and restful long holiday weekend!

Today the weather didn’t cooperate so I didn’t get a chance to sit by the pool, so instead I watched “The Haves and Have Nots” marathon on OWNTV Network and worked on my Blog with next week’s posts.

The beginning of a new week, may it be blessed and productive. Yes, I am wearing white after
Labor Day because summer isn’t over and it was hot today! Headed out for weekly grocery shopping in white capris and green/white polka dot top both thrifted from Goodwill. Green sandals from NYand Company and sunnies won from Penny Chic.

Have a nice evening and even better week. Smooches!


As with most stores, the fall fashions were in stock well before Labor Day to capture the back to school crowd as well as the excitement of updating our fall wardrobes. Rugged Wearhouse is a clothing store that has really stepped up their game. I remember years ago this store carried mainly jeans and t-shirts for young adults and school age kids, and although this is still their primary target the selection of women’s wear has greatly improved. To further entice the more mature buyer they recently introduced a Rewards Program. When you sign up online you will receive a card which is presented at checkout. The reward is $5.00 off your next purchase if you spend at least $25.00.
On this trip I did spend more than $25.00, and here are the items that I purchased.

Price point for these tops starts at $7.99

Career Clothing

Price point for these dresses start at $12.99

Shoes are a hit or miss, depending on when they get a shipment, I saw several pairs of boots but wanted to wait because I couldn’t remember what I already had in my closet. I did however, get these purple ones because I knew I didn’t have any in this color and I liked the funky heels!

Shoe price point varies, these were $9.99

Accessories galore starting as low as $.99 cents.

I purchased 2 necklaces for $1.49, a pair of earrings and bracelets for $3.99 each.

Scarves and purses start at $4.99

Today is my “YAY-DAY” because tomorrow I’m off for a stay-ca-day to start the long Labor Day holiday weekend.  Today’s outfit is layered like the leaves on the lawn …. don’t go summer…please stay a wee bit longer (wiping away tears).  Not ready to put away the summer wear so I covered this spaghetti strap maxi with a front zip vest thrifted from Goodwill,  accented with a red belt from Ross.  Popping more of the red with earrings inherited from my lil sis who passed away in 1992, a bracelet from MizOutlet.com and covered one stone in my ring with red nail polish.  The polish is easily removed for a change of color to accent another outfit.  I thought about wearing red shoes but decided on these black and white stripped wedges from Marshalls.

I have been wanting to wear these white pants for several weeks now but the weather hasn’t been warm or sunny enough.  

Today is the day, and in my head I hear the woman in the commercial saying, “don’t wear white after Labor Day – who are you? – my grandmother?”  The actress, Lisa Raye wears white everyday so here I am in my white pants before Memorial Day.
