Now most women wouldn't wear a skirt hiking, but it was a very short hike from the parking lot to the overlook. Plus, as I already stated, we went to church in the morning so I had to wear something appropriate for church too. I actually prefer wearing shorts skirts over shorts in the summer. I find them so much more comfortable and stylish.
Because I knew I would be hiking, I chose very comfortable walking sandals from Younkers. They are very supportive and have a great sole for gripping. I also wore a sun hat for sun protection. I always wear a hat now if I know I'll be outside for extended period. I chose a cross body bag for ease to carry.
My cross body saddle bag was a gift from my daughter and so was the bracelet I have on. I chose brown tortoise shell sunglasses to coordinate with my outfit.
I found this sun hat from JCPenney this summer (sorry, but it's no longer available). I absolutely love it and it has become my go-to hat this summer. I like the baseball hat style with the straw hat flair! The ribbon is so cute, and the front brim is so big it really keeps the sun off my face and out of my eyes.
My triple strand stone necklace is from Express (old).
My top is just a simple beige sleeveless top from Walmart. I bought it at the end of last summer when they had a summer clothes clearance sale. l got this top plus two more in other colors for $2.00 each and then I also picked up three pairs of shorts for $3.00 each! I don't normally buy clothes at Walmart, but at those prices how could I resist?
My skirt is super old. I have shown it to you many times before HERE, HERE, and HERE. It is by Joe Fresh.
It was such a pretty day for a walk in the woods. We've been having such mild temperatures for the month of August: it's mostly been in the 70's or low 80's. It's not great if you want to go swimming, but it's awesome for all other outdoor activities like hiking or gardening!
And here is the view we were looking for! It overlooks the Chippewa River and downtown Eau Claire. We live in such a pretty area!
Have a Great Day! Amy
