Summer Lovin’ & Leather

Floral tank and American Eagle Shorts

For the last few weeks I have been defiantly insisting that summer was not remotely over, not even close to beginning to wind-down. I have worn my tiny shorts at ever chance I get, I have enjoyed sunny runs on the greenbelt, and I have just tried to sit outside and enjoy the heat as much as I can. I swear I am some strange human/lizard mix because I just have to be cold-blooded; I’m not at all excited by the thought of the warm summer months leaving us. Maybe I need to move to somewhere perpetually warm, Fiji sounds nice!

Anyways, I have done everything in my power to forget that September comes after August, and in Idaho, where we have four perfect seasons, September means suddenly it’s fall. I recently noticed a tree across from my work that has the vague orange hue as the leaves begin to turn. I don’t think that tree ever enjoyed summer as much as I did. But even I have to now admit that fall is on its way, quickly. On my last sunset bike ride I felt the soft bite in the air of cooler temperatures, and actually wished for a sweater to keep my bare arms warm. Possibility the shock of being cold, or the delight in being able to pull out my favorite cardigans means that I am now on the fall bandwagon.

American Leather Detail Shorts

I currently am in love with faux leather, and these shorts were my first acquired piece this summer and I have worn them to death! First of all, they are American Eagle, which currently are the only reasonably priced jeans I’ve found to fit me, and I truly think their denim is a great quality for what I need in jeans. Besides how amazingly comfy they are,  I love the added leather braid detailing on both sides. It’s a great example of my effort to revitalize my wardrobe, so recently my shopping mantra has been “beauty is in the details.” The one fall thought I’ve previously allowed myself has been thinking on how I’ll wear leather as the weather cools. I’ve started putting together a little wish-list of ideas, and already got an amazing white faux leather skirt from Daily Look that I can’t wait to share with you.
