Wearing White After Labor Day: Yay or Nay?

When it comes to fashion rules, I tend to stick to most of them. Don’t mix patterns, vamp up either the eyes or the lips, semi-formal equates cocktail dresses, while formal means floor length, but the one rule I have never fully grasped is not wearing white after labor day!

It could be because I live in South Florida where seasons are a whimsical fairytale idea, or the fact that pastels are a constant in my wardrobe. Regardless of why this silly rule exists, I’ve been wanting to share this look for a while, so here is my labor day white!!

These crisp white jeans from Gap are so fab! They go great with Lilly tops, and countless other pieces. One of my favorite tops at the moment is this absolutely adorable pastel pink top from brooks brothers. I had always heard good things about Brooks Brothers, but I only recently checked it out for myself. This darling little top was one of the first things to jump out at me. The ruffles on the sleeves are so sweet, and the tiny green polka dots are just to fun!

Besides being totally cute, this top fits me sooo well! As a busty, but short lady, I always have problems with gaping in button-down tops, and my bra showing on the sides in sleeveless shirts. Thankfully, Brooks Brothers carries Petite sizes that work splendidly. All in all, I may have found a new favorite brand ( though I of course can’t pick just one!!)

What white clothes did you rock this Labor Day, or do you even stick to this old school rule? -PS

Disney Tips and Tricks!

Since I am headed out to The Happiest Place on Earth once again with my best friend, Skye, I thought it was high time I did a post about Walt Disney World! Disney is just about my favorite place on Earth:  from the exciting rides, to the yummy food, and the truly magical atmosphere! As a seasoned annual pass holder, I believe it is my duty to share some insider knowledge that I wish I had known for my first trip to Magic Kingdom.

So without further ado, here are some tips to make your trip to The Happiest Place on Earth the happiest it can be!!

  1. If you are visiting any of the Disney Parks for a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary, be sure to stop by the guest relations area! They will give you a complementary personalized pin! It’s so fun to get, “Happy Birthday!” from other guests and cast members!
  2. Most of the restaurants will give you complementary ice water regardless of whether you are purchasing a meal or not. While Orlando water isn’t the tastiest, in the summer months, it is vital to stay hydrated. This is good to know because often people will spend lots of money on bottled water when they don’t really need to. Save that cash for some ears!!
  3. Fast passes are awesome! You can have up to three fast passes at a time, so make sure to snag the fast passes for your favorite ride first! (I would personally recommend the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train!) If you are staying at a Disney Resort, you can schedule your fast passes ahead of time!
  4. Bring ponchos! Yes, they are available for purchase at the parks, but once again, you may want to save your money for more exciting things (like the yummy caramel apples!)
  5. Finally, take a picture in front of the Castle first thing. I know everyone is so excited to get to the rides and start having a magical day, but you will want pictures to remember the magic! You can ask the Disney photographers to take a picture with your camera and/ or phone. Taking the classic castle picture first thing ensures everyone will have smiling faces!

These are just five of sooo many tips to help you have a magical adventure! In the words of a famous mouse, “See ya real soon!” -PS

Monogrammed Madness!!

Every preppy girl knows that a monogram goes with just about anything, and I’m no exception! From clutches to jewelry and everything in between.

One of my favorite pieces is my wide-brimmed Derby hat. In sunny South Florida, it’s so important to protect yourself from the sun, and this hat always saves the day! What’s your favorite monogrammed item? -PSDSC00643
