Summer White- Finds on Etsy

I hate to admit it but then why should I?  I still stick to the old school rule of white after Memorial Day and before Labor Day.  We have been having quite a heat wave in NYC.  It is our third this summer.  Harper, my new little baby, has been handling it like a champ.  Of course it is difficult to figure out if the ac is bothering her.  She has been wearing with style her sleeveless white onesies.

Why do we wear whites in the summer?  It makes us feel lighter? Refreshed? Thinner? Pure?
Winter whites are nice in the winter but don't have the same feeling.  Whatever the reason is there are many white items to choose from.

Check out these cute beaded earrings on Etsy by Elegance by Elaine
They remind me of vintage chandeliers.

I love this! And being an avid reader and lover of the English authors, this is so unique!
"Dearest Jane! Who could have done less for her" this scarf has sections from Pride and Prejudice printed on it.  Find it at storiarts on Etsy and the designer is based in Portland Oregon, my old dwelling place.  So many artists and creativity is coming out of Portland these days.

A vintage linen dress from dustysociety that looks quite modern. 

More dresses! Look at this adorable baby doll dress with a Peter Pan collar!  This is from DressupComeon out of Thailand.

We don't want to forget about the men. I stumbled upon this fantastic retro shirt from a shop called thebazarhome.

Are you a believer of white after Memorial Day and before Labor Day? 
How do you feel about this tradition?
Should I just stop being so traditional or conservative?
