    Since it is still in the triple digits here in scalding Las Vegas, yes, we’re still wearing white. Love to know when autumn weather will be visiting us!

    does anyone else look at this photo and think of the nanny in The Muppet Babies?! That show was my favorite when I was a kid. I always loved that you could never see Nanny’s face, haha.

    This is a good article from Time about the history of white and Labor Day. It concludes that you’re probably just fine!

    Absolutely adorable! Inspired me to do the same with my little girl (she is 2 weeks younger than Eleanor). I admire your sense of style and always look forward to monthly style posts. What are you favorite sources for clothing for Eleanor?

    I hope not because I am wearing white jeans today! It’s the first time for pants in 3 mos since the temps were 100+ here. I doubt anyone at my office cares though…

    Cute outfits, mama!

    I thought Stacey London said that’s an old rule – so it must not apply anymore. There is something called winter white for clothing, right?
    Besides, you two look so adorable…you indeed make everything lovely.

    Stacy & Clinton from WNTW said you can wear white all year long – if the fabric is appropriate for the season. Sounds logical to me!

    Your shoes are nice! I want one! If only I’m expecting a baby girl, I’d prolly be buying her those cute silver shoes on Eleanor… :)
