The Classy vs. the Classless

It's a long weekend here in the states and many Americans are enjoying their last days with a picnic, a parade, spending time at the pool before it closes for the season, and most importantly wearing as much white as possible since it's considered  "classless" to wear after this day.  That was sarcastic for those you not familiar with my witty remarks.  Labor Day is a  day of remembrance for those laborers who lost their lives after the Pullman strike.  This holiday has an unwritten fashion tradition that your white clothes, accessories, shoes, etc. are to be stored away for Fall.  My theory is Fall does not officially start until Sept. 23rd so this gives me almost  two weeks to  continue wearing white proudly.   That's my stance and sticking to it.  My question to you is, will you wear white after Labor Day?  I guess I am not classy.  :(
But enough of this. 
A bright and cheery card for Sentimental Sundays this week.  I used a Doodle Pantry sentiment paired with Echo Park Happy Day's papers. 
I like the bold floral from Retro and the chain link from Little Flowers.  I sprayed a bracket tag with Pepper Red and then layered a small doily on top.  The yellow seam binding was tied to hide where the papers edges meet.  I used orange baker's twine and a fabric orange floral for a little more pizazz.  I made the stick pin with red and gold beads and a pearl stick.  Those are so easy to make! 
Thanks for coming by!

Of course I wear white after Labor Day...we live in the tropics where people go shopping to buy white to wear since it's so hot. I did get some snobby looks, however, when we moved to KY and I wore white while the "ladies" were in their fall colors. It was my own little rebellion and I'm sticking to it. Who made up that "rule" anyway?
