This is a pre-scheduled post. I am in Illinois visiting my children and grandchildren. They do not have Internet service so I will be unable to respond to your comments or visit your blogs till I return.
I feel like I've really missed out on all the fall fun everyone else in Blog Land has been experiencing. Every time I open my IPad some blogger is exclaiming about their beautiful weather and showing all their fun activities. My husband and I normally partake in all those great fall activities too, but not this year as the weather has been miserable. It has literally rained every single weekend, and not just any rain, but cats and dogs pouring rain. And if it's not raining, it's bitter cold! Our poor local kids had the worst Homecoming ever freezing in the cold. BUT we finally had ONE good weekend, the last weekend before a killing frost, and my husband and I managed to go on a hike after church on a beautiful 63 degree day.
Because we were going to church beforehand, I had to be a little more careful in picking out my outfit to make sure it was suitable for both church and hiking. I ended up going with this outfit:
Everything I am wearing is old except for the cross body bag. I just received that in my October box from Stitch Fix. As always, I will link similar items to what I am wearing at the end of the post.
We love to take this hike every year. The paths are gorgeous, and they have a 60 foot tower on the top of a hill that you can climb up and see this incredible view. If you're local, the name of the place is "Hoffman Hills Recreation Area" and it's located near Menomonie Wisconsin.
Because I went to church earlier that day, I didn't want to wear my usual Merrill Hiking Boots that I wear when I travel and chose this dressier version instead. The top of the boot can be worn up or down. If you fold them down a pretty plaid material is revealed. I didn't want the plaid in the boot to compete with the plaid in my shirt, so I wore them up.
As I mentioned earlier, I chose this cross body bag from my latest Fix because the neutral color went with my outfit and the cross body style made it easy to carry.
I always wear jewelry even with the simplest of outfits. It dresses up a casual outfit, and it makes any outfit looks more polished and put together. On this day I wore a simple gold bracelet, necklace, and earrings.
So I would be comfortable walking, I wore my stretch corduroy pants I received in a Fix from last year. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love these cords! They are so comfy! I find I reach for them instead of my jeans all the time!
My beige cardigan I picked up at TJMaxx several years ago. I love the neutral color and the interesting texture on back.
My plaid top I've had in my closet for awhile now. I got it at JCPenney. I'm usually not a fan of plaid button down tops for they tend to look awful on me, but this one is flattering for some reason.
