Even though fall is not one of my favorite seasons, I do appreciate it's color and my husband and I try to spend as much as time as possible soaking up the last few days of warm weather and enjoying the gorgeous foliage. Every weekend until the last leaf drops, we venture out and go for a fall drive and find someplace pretty to hike.
On this day it was a beautiful sunny day with the temperatures in the upper sixties to lower seventies. However, it was also Sunday, so I had to find something I could wear to church and also be comfortable hiking in (after I changed my shoes of course), so this is what I wore.
Most churches are super casual these days, so I decided to wear Bermuda shorts. The dark wash denim is more polished than a faded wash, and the length of the shorts made them church appropriate. By adding a pair of dress shoes and some jewelry, I was able to dress the look up quite a bit.
I have to admit I was never a fan of Bermuda shorts. My legs are my best feature, so I never felt the need to cover them up. However, there are occasions, like this one, where Bermuda shorts are more appropriate than short ones so when I saw this pair on clearance at Walmart for $3.00 I scooped them up. I also grabbed a white pair and a light wash pair...so I'm all set for next summer!
I paired my Bermuda shorts with a white and grey plaid shirt (old, JCP, last seen HERE), and a long burgundy cardigan (old, JCP, last seen HERE).
I only wore the cardigan to church and out-to-lunch, and then it came off. It was way too warm to wear it the rest of the day.
Because we were hiking, I carried my black back pack bag (old, Kmart).
I know everyone is wearing booties now, and I am trying to incorporate them in to my fall outfits as well, but most days it's still too hot so I throw on a pair of sandals instead. The way I look at it, in a few more weeks this beautiful warm weather will be gone, and I will have five months to wear booties, so why not show off my lovely pedicure a bit more longer?
And if your wondering what the outfit looked like without the sweater and wedges, here are a couple of pictures of me hiking. It got way too hot for the sweater, so I left it in the car, and I switched out the dress shoes for white sneakers.
So what about you, have you been able to get out and enjoy the beautiful colors yet? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy
