Hello dear readers! I’m back! Did you miss your daily dose of white? I did! I took an extended blog break because after I got back from Florida, I was so busy with start of school year (I don’t have kids, but I do teach at the university) and my book that my one week blog break turned into two turned into three. But all that is in the past. I’m back, and I’m eager to return to my blogger way of life.
So Labour Day has come and gone. Does this mean there’s no room for white until Victoria Day in May? I think not! My love of white continues year-round, and I am all for breaking the “no white after labour day” rule for fashion and home decor. There are so many shades of white that the colour is great year-round! Just yesterday, in fact, I proudly wore my white sneakers while I shopped around Cambridge with a friend. Embrace white, I say!
Speaking of white shoes, my jaw dropped when I saw these party shoes on one of my favourite fashion bloggers – Blair Eadie (of Atlantic Pacific). They sure are fun!

Here’s hoping these fun shoes are a sign of good things to come this school year!
It’s highly likely that every woman has some version of a shirtdress in their closets right now. It’s an easy-to-wear dress for work and leisure, it’s flattering, and it’s available in a range of colours, fabrics, and patterns. The shirtdress is now a classic dress design that came to us in the 1950s from Christian Dior where the full skirt was paired with crinoline for a little extra pouf. The style – noted by collars and the shirt-style – was inspired by menswear at the time. Now, we see many clothing brands creating their own variations.

With the warmer weather (finally) here, and Victoria Day just around the corner, it’s nearly time to bring out – and buy, perhaps – all the white dresses.
