Ah, yes the wardrobe. Did you grow up with the seasonal fashion rules? I did. My mama laid down the law early on and I believed her. Given that we’ve had a cold spring, it hasn’t been hard to abide by the rules this year. I was in sweat pants and flannel pajamas last week. And I might be this week, too. Hard to tell.
But the years it has been 85 degrees weeks prior to Easter, the white sandals and straw purses always cried out, “It’s time! Come and get me!” And I’ve thought about it—hard. I’ve told myself those silly rules are passé.
Yet, I’ve never been able to bring myself to break those rules.
The Seasonal Fashion Rules, According to My Mama
· No white shoes, purses, pants, or skirts before Easter or after Labor Day.
· No straw hats or purses before Easter or after Labor Day.
· No suede after Easter until Labor Day.
· No velvet before Labor Day or after Valentine's Day.
How about you? Did your mama have rules? Do you still keep them?
Give me a seasonal fashion rule that isn’t on my list for a chance to win an autographed copy of Scrimmage Gone South, where the heroine Tolly, would never break the rules!
