Today's Everyday Fashion: White Shoes

I'm loving the mixing stripes trend so much, and was thankful for this J.Crew photo which inspired me to try it in a new way. I paired my navy striped blazer with a 5+year old striped collared shirt and navy pencil skirt. I love this idea for work - the mixed stripes are trendy, but subdued. I originally tried my go-to nude pumps but I've been wearing them so much, I wanted to try something different, plus these shoes haven't gotten some love in almost a year. White shoes are a tad tricky for me - I certainly don't subscribe to the Labor Day rules when it comes to white jeans (I think they are equally at home in the winter), but white shoes I'm a little more careful with. I don't think the exact date is important, but I only wear them during the hottest months, usually between May-September. Curious to hear what you think! Are white shoes a faux pas? Do you follow any Labor Day rules?
