What is Labor Day and Why Can’t We Wear White

Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike. It is meant to be celebrated with street Parades and Parties!
 On a Lighter note, it is also known as the last day women can wear white until next summer. I did some research into this etiquette topic and the conclusion is no one really knows why this rule was created, but here are some theories;  People opt to wear white in the summer to stay cool, because darker colors absorb more sunlight and heat. Another theory was that you stopped wearing white after Labor Day because you were preparing for the fall rains… and mud and white do not mix! The last idea is that white linen is associated with leisure.  Labor Day is symbolic of going back to school and to work, where casual clothing would be totally inappropriate.

Be Bold and Carry On

Everything from this look is available at Kohl’s and at very reasonable prices I put up to pairs of shoes and two tops, I say Be Bold and Carry On, go for the red and the heel.
