:: Rule Breaker ::

No peeking at Christmas presents. No white after Labor Day. No licking the batter. No reading in the dark

Some rules were made to be broken, right? Down here in Dallas, it’s hotter than the Fourth of July. Which is why anyone who tells me that I cannot wear white after Labor Day is probably not meant to be my friend. If that were true, who in tarnation would get married after Labor Day?

Half the people I associate with, which is one of the many reasons we are friends!

So today my dear friends, readers, people from Hong Kong who can’t understand my random slang via Google translate: I challenge you to eat cake for breakfast! Don multiple chains in the name of high fashion! WEAR WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY!

Because, we can.

And be happy – because today is the day that Napa meets its match! Looking forward to sharing this adventure with you! Also – send a prayer up for me on Saturday. Taylor thinks we will actually make it to SEVEN wineries.

I die. Insert boggled emoji face here.

:: Palm Trees + Eighty Degrees ::

More than a year ago, Taylor’s mom sent me a photo of a dress that she immediately knew was right up my alley.

The white sleeveless dress from Zara boasted the brightest, multi-colored palm trees scattered across it. Without a Zara in Oklahoma, and knowing their sizes can run a bit funky, I let my neon dream go.

Until I just so happened to stumble upon it on Sheinside, and ordered it for a whopping $28! At that price, I could order three and it wouldn’t be the same amount as the one from Zara. Needless to say, it came in and I loved it.

Moral of the story: If you don’t mind waiting¬†2-3 weeks, can measure yourself in centimeters, and understand fabrics well enough to know what will and will not look cheap/be see through, you can always order from a rando website in Hong Kong.
