  • Coming from the Deep South with a mother who followed this pretty closely, I think one reason is to differentiate the seasons in a region where there is little difference between the weather in, say, March, May, or October. This way you save your "summery" white clothes to wear only during hot weather between Easter & Labor Day. When I lived in Houston, I wore the same kind of lightweight cotton shirts most of the year. I actually enjoyed wearing "summery" colors and "fall/wintery" colors to differentiate the season in my wardrobe.

    On the other hand, the rules could just be there to be b*tchy and to separate those who "know" from those who "don't know!"

  • yup, just what i wanted to hear hahaha! that is so true jmpj8107. thats exactly what i was thinking. i wear white whenever i want to and i dare anyone to say anything about it, cuz if i managed to keep the shade of white that i walked outta the house with even after having my 2yr old around...then im not bothered with anything or anyone!
