Summertime and the Livin' Is Easy . . .

Happy Friday, my friends! I am so looking forward to this holiday weekend. I need the break! Labor Day was today's theme for Fashion Friday. Here's the outfit I put together for a Labor Day Soiree...

dress / clutch / necklace / earrings / wedges

I had to go with a white eyelet dress since Labor Day is the unspoken cut off for wearing white here in the South. Some think that's an old fashion rule (and I sort of agree)
but I have a hard time breaking it.

As you know, pink and green are two of my favorite colors and both are quintessential summer.
With that in mind, a big juicy slice of watermelon was my muse for today's outfit.
Cotton eyelet is cool for summertime temperatures and these colorful wedges (which I love! why didn't I find these puppies back in May? Sad.) will provide a stable, confident step and prevent heels digging from into the earth.

This Kate Spade necklace is definitely a splurge but a statement piece that's worth the investment.
Demure earrings and a colorful clutch put the finishing touches on this sweet outfit.
I envision myself wearing this darling get-up to a Labor Day Soiree on the bluff at the coast.
Maybe if I close my eyes tight enough, I can teleport myself there right now...

So what do you think? Would you wear this to a Labor Day function?
Are you loving these wedges as much as I am?
Big plans this Labor Day weekend?

We are headed to an out of town wedding this weekend and
I can't wait to share the pictures with you.
This wedding isn't just any's a themed wedding.
The Husband and I will be decked out in our best 1920's attire and good times are sure to be had!
Check back on Tuesday (not Monday) for the Weekend Update.
Until then, enjoy your Labor Day Weekend, my lovelies!
Be safe and enjoy yourself.
