White Shoes and Southern Girls...
I am a Southern girl. And being a Southern girl, there are certain "rules" to live by. Not rules that, if broken, will lead you to trouble. No, nothing like that. Rules that, well, set you apart as a Southern girl.
Let's talk about the rule for shoes- white shoes in particular. I don't mean white tennis shoes. No, no, no. I mean white dress shoes. Even white sandals. There is a rule that Southern girls go by that says you are NOT to wear white shoes after Labor Day. And you can NOT wear them again until Easter Sunday.
Wait. Hold on a minute... Some Southern girls say that you aren't allowed to wear white dress shoes or white sandals until Memorial Day. But, well, I'm not one of those girls. I hold strictly to the "Not before Easter Sunday and not after Labor Day" rules. My mother taught me this. It's just part of being a Southern girl.
So, today, though I normally do not post on Sundays, I am posting a farewell to our white shoes of summer.
So long white sandals.
Farewell white patent leather with a cute little buckle strap.
I bid you each adieu until Easter Sunday 2009.
