OOTD: Exploring the City

Last weekend we took a trip to a new part of Lincoln Park we hadn't explored yet. The main purpose of the exploration was to pick out new glasses for my boyfriend at the Warby Parker store. But, we stayed around for wandering around and lunch!

This patch of Lincoln Park is lined with stunning homes and architecture. To live in one of these homes is major goals. So, if someone wants to lend me about $1.5 million that would be fabulous. In the meantime I'll settle for wandering around down these streets. 

To say I found my dream home would be an understatement. Cute doorstep decor, a PURPLE DOOR (aka my favorite color), and a gorgeous facade this place had everything a girl could ask for. Hence why I had to stop and take photos in front of it. This was just one of many gorgeous places we found while walking down Bissell Street in Lincoln Park. 

As for my outfit, this was the perfect fall outfit for a Sunday afternoon. The temperature was in the high 50s and was gorgeous out. We had some very cold days, in the 40s, so this day felt so refreshing and perfect. This kind of weather is what I call Beadnell weather. If you couldn't tell I've been living in this Barbour jacket. I have it in olive and navy and it is absolutely perfect for days in the 50s. 

Paired with my go-to jacket is a sweater I bought last year. I know shocking, a blogger that doesn't have a whole new wardrobe each season! Let me tell you something, re-wearing things is a fact of life. There is no way someone can never re-wear an item in their wardrobe. Unless they are like someone famous or uber rich or I don't know something crazy! In real life we are Lizzie McGuire outfit repeaters. Embrace the wardrobe you already have. I bought this sweater at Kohls of all places last year. Yet, it still works this season. The great thing about sweaters is that they don't really change all that much year to year. I still have sweaters I wore in high school because they were good quality and timeless pieces. 

This sweater is a gorgeous maroon color and has little lace up details near the shoulder. It's warm and cozy which is good in my book. Change up how you style your old sweater with a new skirt you bought this season or add a cheetah bootie. Simple changes can really revamp a piece in your wardrobe. Accessories are powerful things! 

I kept my accessories pretty simple. Just a super cute pair of Kate Spade rhinestone stud earrings with rose gold hardware paired with a stack of Disney rose gold Alex and Ani bangles. Then of course my trusty Cole Haan boots are out to play again.
