This is an outfit I wore to an affluent outdoor mall on the west side of Chicago. My daughter and I went to this same mall last year, but it was a miserable experience because it was bitter cold. I always wanted to go back on a warmer day so I could enjoy it more. It was still cold on this day, but much better than below zero as it was on our first visit. I was able to get by with just a cardigan, although I will admit at times I was cold.
Everything I am wearing you've seen before. This is a short, layered chiffon type skirt but because of the color I can wear it in the cooler months as well, especially if I wear it with black tights. I wore tall black boots to keep my legs warm. My black cardigan is from Zara, and although I bought it a year ago while we were shopping at Zara at this same mall, we saw this exact sweater. I said to my daughter "Oh no, I hope they saw me walk in wearing this sweater. I don't want them to think I stole it!" 😅
This is such a lovely mall. Would you believe it even has two stories with outside escalators? I know I must sound so pathetic to some of you big city people, but this country girl doesn't see malls like this everyday!
There is this lovely fountain in the courtyard with a large grassy area. My daughter says they show free movies there in the summer.
As always, I carried my metallic silver cross body bag because I was traveling. It also left my hands free to carry lots of shopping bags. The only jewelry I wore was silver bangles because my top has a lace up detail that I didn't want to detract from.
The top is new this season although I have shown it to you before HERE. It's a sheer, chiffon top with a lace up front. I love it because the colors are perfect for fall and winter, yet it's sheer and lightweight so I don't get too warm in it and can therefore wear it on warmer days.
