Yes, summer is officially over and even with a warm snap last week, the Autumn winds are blowing and there is a definite crispness in the air. I finally cleared my closet of the summer shorts and tanks and pulled out the long sleeve dresses, sweaters, wraps and wool skirts.
A few weeks ago when I got home from church, hubby and I took a Sunday afternoon drive and chose to cruise through Glasgow Park as we are planning on walking the trails there on Saturday mornings. There were several walkers, joggers, and parents with kids in strollers on this bright and beautiful day. Glasgow Park is a great place to go if you are looking to add a little exercise to your weekend routine or just get some fresh air with the family or to walk the dog.
Obviously, I was not dressed for any serious walking, however, I did walk over to the pond to see the Geese gather and take in the warmth of the sunshine on my face. Wearing this Blue Wool Midi A-Line Skirt from Chadwicks of Boston and Multi Color Shawl kept me comfy cozy and cute – what do you think?
Some of you may remember getting the Chadwicks of Boston catalogs in the mail and if you were anything like me, you would go through each page, “dog-earring” the ones with items that you wanted to order. This Blue Wool Midi A-Line Skirt was one of them as it is perfect for church and work and when the snow flakes begin to fall, I will be wearing my boots with it. I love the front kick pleat which makes it easier to maneuver when walking in the snow.
The American Shawl is a great cover-up because oftentimes I find wearing a heavy sweater uncomfortable especially by the end of the day. Wearing a shawl keeps my arms warm when walking outside and then I can shed it once inside the car or in the office when a “personal summer” hits – and you know what I mean #menopause
