rule breaking

The no white after labor day rule can get outta town! For one, I live in Miami where white is pretty much acceptable any time of year, and two, I dressed down these pants for fall with a plaid flannel shirt today. I saw a similar outfit on I Am Khatu's instagram, so I want to give credit where credit is due. I wore this out to dinner for Thai food. I always seem to wear white when I eat potentially messy/stain prone foods! Luckily I didn't spill my pad thai on myself, haha.
In other news, I figured out my Halloween costume today. I decided on an 80's prom queen while browsing the dress racks at Goodwill. There were several contenders for the dress, and I think I found a hot-pink-ruffled-with-shoulder-pads winner! The sad part is one of the workers saw me debating between dresses and I don't think she understood that I was picking one for Halloween.. oh dear. I immediately washed the dress when I got home, and threw in some of my other laundry with it......... andddddd for the first time in my life (and hopefully last time) I turned all the white clothes in the wash a shade of pink, lol. Thankfully, I think the only white clothes I had in the wash were some pajama pants and socks, but I haven't unloaded the dryer yet to make sure. You win some you lose some, I guess. I'm happy these pants weren't in that wash!

  1. If you did accidently dye something pink, try washing them again with the shout color catchers. They're a life saver!
