Its almost time to get to officially wear white! South of the Mason & Dixon, traditionally, we wear white between Easter & Labor Day. (up North, they wait until Memorial Day!) I know a lot of people, including myself, don't understand or scoff at this rule and think it is another crazy idea Miss Emily Post thought of, and now everyone after our great- mothers followed suit for no apparent reason. (don't get me wrong, I don't ever break the rule... my office or mother would let me know quickly.)
I just typlically always would wait to bust out my white shoes and little cream dresses after easter only because it gets me excited for spring and something to look forward to... I love the fresh, clean feel of white...
However, after doing some reasearch, I found out the sweet reason of that we wait to wear white. We have been set free and washed clean from Christ's death and to symbolize our purity as a constant reminder of our salvation in Christ, we wear the holy, pure, color-less white.

I like that... and now I have even more reason to anxiously anticipate rotating the closet around.
Here's to 2 more days till we are washed clean and wearing our crisp whites...
Happy Easter everyone!
