Today’s Obsession: The LWD

Have you heard? White is the new black. Ironic that while I’m writing that I’m wearing black, black, and more black. But I think it’s about time that we women banish the archaic style rules of only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day. White for three months out of the year? How practical is that?

With the help of my beloved Google, I found a TIME article (I know… I’m so hypocritical) about the potential origins for the rule. Check it out here.

Honestly, I think that Labor Day is a pretty decent cut-off date for wearing anything overly spring-y, but there’s no way I’m waiting until June to don some summery clothes. It’s sunny. I want color.

Lilly Pulitzer recently released her new line of LWDs–a sassy twist on the LBD–and they are all looking very stylish. One TSM posts (so many acronyms…) joked that the collection was made for sorority rituals. Ironic, but potentially true. Lilly knows how to play to her target audience. My favorite of her pieces is this little number, which I think kind of looks like someone hemmed a wedding dress.

You know the best part about the LWD?? It pairs exceptionally well with a dark Bahamas tan šŸ™‚ Obsessed.
