White Filled Wednesday ... Time's A-Tickin'!

Yikes, put on your whites!!

As traditional Southern protocol has it, white is not to be worn after Labor Day which means you have 5 more days to don your crisp whites before retiring them for the summer! Sad to think that is the case but luckily this bit of "Southern protocol" has seemed to slip over the years and your grandmother may not forgive you for wearing your whites after this holiday.  With that said though, be careful with the fabric... might be time to retire your white linen for the summer - or maybe not!

In doing a bit of intel, it seems as though noone really knows where the tradition began but I did learn that Labor Day marks when the Navy switches from their white uniforms to their navy blue uniforms. Maybe I've been living under a rock but I didn't realize that so there's your tidbit for the day in case you didn't know either.

So fresh and clean!

This room is proof that varying shades of white can be mixed and matched! 

White centerpiece and with fewer blooms this can be done on a budget - never hurts!

A good white dress is a true summer staple!

All white bathroom. Quite nice!

Great neutral entry way adorned with white!
