(p)leather shorts.

happy monday.
i visited Patty's Closet [at windward mall] this weekend and picked up these faux leather shorts. although i love the leather pair i currently own, it's too big and can be uncomfortable to wear. when i saw these on Patty's Closet's instagram page, i knew it would end up in the dressing room. these fit much better, and i'm looking forward to wearing these with oversized sweaters
and loafers.

had a great weekend with the neighborhood mamas. we spent friday and saturday discussing minor details of our halloween party and ended the weekend with our block party. while the turnout wasn't as big as last year, a good time was still had and we ended up with tons of food. it was a great way to kick-off halloween and get into the spirit of the holiday. next up? pumpkin carving.

what are some of the halloween activities you participate in?

I don't know why but shorts like these look terrific on attractive women. They seem to magnify your natural beauty to an almost unbearable degree.

As always you look amazing! We do the community Halloween party every year and also swing by the pumpkin patch. Next up for us is carving the pumpkins.

The outfit is fab and I'm loving the heart cut-out dress, I hope you got that too?! I wish we celebrated Halloween as much over here in the UK as you guys get to. I think we will be heading to a party/nightclub on the 31st but thats about it. x

You are so lucky you can still wear shorts! It is freezing here in Toronto. I love those leather/pleather shorts with the blazer. Blazer can really give an outfit that something extra, I have blazers in pretty much every color known to man lol. You look amazing hun.

How good that you discovered these shorts because they look absolutely fantastic on you <3 And I love it really how you wear it with the bright blazer and the white shirt.

The only disadvantage of this wonderful post is that I haven´t such great shorts in my closet ;)

Love the shorts. Great combo with the red jacket. That heart back dress is adorable although I can't pull off going braless or those no back bras.
So cute though.
