    Oops I voted wrong!  I accidentally voted that it’s too early but wanted to vote that it’s totally ok. You can wear white all year long as you long as you do it right.

    Maybe I’m crazy, but I wear white all year round. I have never understood these old rules. As long as you love it and feel great in it, it will look great!

    I voted wrong too.

    I don’t really like the dress, probably cause it would look terrible on me, lol, but yes, you can wear white whenever you want.

    you could dress it up a bit, maybe add a red belt or something, or wear a thin scarf / colourful jewellery? or maybe a bright coloured cardigan… but otherwise i think it’s definitely ok to wear white in May!!

    do people really abide by that saying anymore? if the outfit you want towear matches the weather and the level of fancy/casualness then you’ll be fine. maybe its just because i live somewhere super warm, buy i was wearing white shorts in february and i’m pretty sure no one noticed or cared.

    @cbee:  yay!

    I was also raised with the white worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day only.  But sometimes it’s ok to break the rules and I think this is one of those events.
