Wake Me Up When September Ends | Leather Shorts and Red Clutch

Hello gorgeous readers!



Today is the last day of September and that always makes me a bit sad. Out here in DC people like to joke and say that we only have two seasons: Summer and Winter. Sometimes I feel it's somewhat true - our fall and springs are so short. So when September ends and October begins, I think to myself, "Winter is coming" all Ned Stark style (high fives for a Game of Thrones reference, anyone?)






I do like October though - it means Halloween is coming, Pumpkin Spice Lattes will be a regular part of my day and dressing in layers (which I love) will be necessary - all things I enjoy immensely. 





Also, I must really like leather - I pretty much had a love affair with these leather shorts this weekend. They're so comfy and the perfect mix of edgy and feminine. 



Do you guys have a favorite month?

Top: Forever 21 shirt, H&M blazer (similar here)
Bottoms: Forever 21 shorts (similar here)
Accessories: Nine West clutch, Forever 21 studs (similar here), Gap RED bracelet, red and silver bangles from boutique in France
Shoes: Michael Antonio Louie pumps

  6. Woot woot for pumpkin spice lattes, one of the best part of the season haha! I didn't know DC thought about its seasons that way, but now that I think about it, makes a whole lotta sense.

    Your outfit is killer. Digging the blazer and the leather shorts. Perfect. Love that you're wearing a GAP red bracelet.

    Hope your day is swell!

  7. Dearest Deborah, I understand that you felt in love with this awesome shorts, you look great in it and created a perfect combination <3 To answer your question is difficult for me: I love Summer, because this is the season when I usually don´t freeze, but I like Autuum and Winter, with this more quiet mood and that I haven´t to do as much in the garden like in Spring and Summer. But I´m happy, too, when Spring arrives and everything is green and bright :)

    Here in Bavaria we have normally fortunately every season and especially Autuum and Spring are wonderful with its colours ... wish you that you will have in DC this year a wonderful and long Autuum, too <3

  12. Here in Toronto, we share your lack of a real spring and fall. They come and go so quickly. We're basically in the peak of fall right now, but now that October is coming, I know the long winter is not far off :(

    Cute outfit! I'm loving the leather shorts! Super edgy and fun.

  22. LOVE those shorts! I like how the outfit is so laid back, but the heels add a nice edge and dresses it up a little bit. I'm actually coming to DC in about two weeks so hopefully it isn't too cold! I'm such a baby when it comes to cold weather!
    Cute post!

  23. I liked that song from Green Day haha. It's true when spring or fall comes which I called them the middle short seasons, the next following season is right around the corner! Need to take full advantage & pumpkin spice lattes is def one of the ways ;P Love the shorts!

  28. Oh, I couldn't be happier that winter is coming (GOT fan right here!) Houston is pretty much the same way: when I went to DC for my summer internship, I was surprised that it was just as hot despite being so much farther north. Those nude pumps make you look so tall, and I can't wait for the weather to cool down so that I can wear leather bottoms as well.
