I know “they” say the rules no longer apply.  However, white shoes, seersucker and linen were created to wear between Easter and Labor Day  according to my mother’s fashion handbook…and it’s that book by which I will always abide.  Whether it’s a celebration of death and resurrection or peeps and jelly beans Easter does allow Spring to officially begin with fashion, food and frivolity.
