Seersucker Friday

While living in DC, I loved how every Friday in the summer all of the Southern Republicans would come out in their seersucker suits. It made me smile, and I brought mine out every random Friday or so to show my southern pride.

Because I will not be able to wear my suit for much of the summer (thanks expanding waist line), I thought I would break it out today!

I'm not sure if Easter marks the time to start wearing seersucker or if I should have waited till after Memorial Day. According to wikipedia: In the South, the genteel rule of thumb is that it is appropriate to wear between Easter and Labor Day. When worn in the North, Memorial Day through Labor Day is considered the appropriate time for wear. It is widely considered a fashion faux pas to wear seersucker at the wrong time of the year.

So I hope you all will forgive me, if it is minor faux pas since the Midwest is not really the North (according to Midwesterners) and I am heading south in 3 days.

Today is Kdubs last day of finals and law school and tomorrow is his graduation. I am so proud of him. It deserves its own post next week, which I will hopefully be able to include pictures! Since I am working graduation as their photographer, I should have some good ones!

On Sunday, we are moving him to Athens, GA to start Bar Prep and I am spending the week in Atlanta getting ready for my brother, Choppy's, wedding. It is going to be a busy busy next week and a half. But it is all good things so there will be a big smile on my face no matter what.

oh seersuckers! how I love them. both of the boys would wear little seersucker rompers for the summer when they were itty bitty. My husband would kill me now if I put my 4 year old in one, but they were oh so cute.

I'm sure you look great!

I know nothing about rules and dates, so it's a go from me.

I'll wave really fast while you are here...and yell hello!

I! LOVE! SEERSUCKER!!! I have skirts, pants, jackets, you name it -- in a variety of colors! I say go for it and don't look back -- Easter marks the season to me....and I think you should wear it until you have a rubber band holding it closed - then get some MATERNITY seersucker! :)

I remember when we bought that seersucker suit! I think I was pregnant with Elijah.... you had your suitcase lost (and then returned from the middle east, with some free sand). We went to Tysons corner and shopped for pretty new clothes :-) It's from Banana Republic? Or JCrew?

Miss you! Hope you are feeling good and have a safe trip!
