White after Labor Day

Umm, yes please. Don’t tell me what your fashion rules are. ‘Don’t wear white after Labor Day’ is one of those, ‘but why’ style rules. Labor day weekend is the ‘end of summer’ traditionally. Well, I’m a summer baby and my birthday isn’t until September 19th. It’s one of the last few days of summer (the Autumn Equinox is 9/22), so why shouldn’t you wear white during the last few summer days.. or Fall & Winter for that matter.

Take a look at these outfits: White jeans from the amazing Atlanta Local Sara Blakely who created Spanx, paired with this cute tank filled with fall colors and some of her famous faux leather leggings with a white tank. Perfect for wearing white no matter when and handling the warm southern Fall nights. And who can’t resist a crop top (in white duh) with a fun black tutu and leopard heels.

Which outfit do you prefer? I’m also curious as to what “fashion” rules you’ve heard that are completely out of date. I’ve always thought of fashion as what is trending and true style is your personality and how you pair pieces to it. Do you agree?

Movement

Never

Stop

Moving

I love still photography more than anything…but, taking still images (shot in continuous mode) and streaming them together into a video that looks a bit choppy may take the cake. It tells a story, invites you in to the movement and makes you want to dance along. I also think it stops people from scrolling to fast part your image and draws them in. So, never stop moving. Regardless if you want to create a video from the images or not, shooting in continuous mood gives you the perfect opportunity to get THE perfect shot (or shots). A flowy tulle skirt really helps with the movement too.


I load my images into a stack into Photoshop and then create frames from the layers (it’s so EASY). I export them as a GIF (I say it’s ‘gif’ not ‘jiff’ lol) and then convert them into a .mov for Instagram (because they don’t like GIF’s for whatever reason). Great for your feed, stories and the new popular reels!


Look at the three videos above and tell me which is your favorite and why (tell me in the comments below).
