Summer is coming to an end so I’m spending as many days at the beach while I can. Being that I live in a beach town the best days are yet to come. From June-August the beach is over crowded & not to mention it’s just too hot to even be outside so by the time September rolls around, the weather is perfect and the big crowds are gone. With the arrival of September which happens to be my favorite month…cough cough, it’s my birthday month (Sept. 7, don’t worry there’s plenty of time to get me a gift). But seriously September brings about fall styles! Being raised in the south I grew up being taught when Labor Day comes around I had to say goodbye to seersucker and white; white shoes and pants. I still won’t wear white shoes or seersucker after the first weekend of Sept. but as far as white pants go, I’ve let this one slide in recent years. The way I think of said rule is stop wearing super resort wear once September comes, as with anything I think it’s all about styling. You can take super summer pieces like Lilly Pulitzer and incorporate them into your fall mix.
I wanted to take one last spin in these shorts, they’re from J.Crew from I think 2 years ago & they have pleats…my heart skips a beat with pleats. Seriously if something as pleats or pockets like I mentioned in my long sleeve romper post then there’s a 99% chance I’ll buy it based on those 2 reasons alone.
