Fear not, Summerlings, it's not Labor Day yet! This Bird has never got with the program over that old fashion of rule of "no wearing white after Labor Day." And no one else follows this either, it's just a common turn-of-phrase nowadays. But it got me thinking about why white is so lovely for summer, and how touches of gold can make a look ladylike, crisp, and dancing along the edge of preppy-sweet. 

White + Gold = Summer Luxe. That's the only wisdom I have to impart. And just small touches can really finish an outfit. I have an old white and gold bangle that I've had for years, and it's always the perfect flourish, especially on a simple outfit like a flowy blouse half-tucked into a pair of shorts.
