Although I don’t particularly care for the cooler months, I do enjoy fall temperatures right when it’s on the cusp of being cold (low to mid 60s). I equally enjoy being outside on sunny days in fall, because the leaves have started to change color and it’s quite a beautiful sight to see. So this past Sunday, my photographer/nephew and I headed out to Grant Park to take a scenic stroll (with pics please). I even invited my dog Basil to come along since going for a walk in the park is one of his favorite things to do.
During one of my recent shopping excursions to Target, I purchased the perfect chunky cardigan and could NOT wait to wear it! At this time of year, I prefer to wear cardigans in lieu of jackets because they’re stylish and easy to throw on with pretty much anything. They also wear well with scarves and other accessories like hats and statement necklaces.
For today’s outfit, I wanted to be “mostly casual” which for me, means everything is casual from the ankles up. No fussy accessories, just my cardigan, a tee, a pair of jeans….Oh! And some heels! I know what you’re thinking…heels are hardly casual, right? Well you’re right…that’s why I call it “mostly casual”…enter the scene in The Princess Bride where Miracle Max explains that Wesley is only “MOSTLY Dead” which is slightly alive…LOL! Gotta love that movie!
Here are the details of my outfit:

The weather was perfect for a walk in the park with my favorite little man, not to mention how comfy I felt in my new chunky cardigan. I plan to get a lot of wear out of it this fall.
