We were treated to a gloriously warm day this weekend – compared to the temperatures of late, that is – so we headed for a walk downtown to do a little shopping for Small Business Saturday. We were at my parents for the holiday weekend, who live in a small town, so were in perfect walking distance to some favorite neighborhood shops. A special gift store in town was always my favorite for stuffed animals when I was little, so it was just the place to go for a special treat for the kids. My outfit was basic (as that is all I really pack for trips back home) – a classic navy cable knit sweater, pants and boots in the same color, and a peek of color and pattern with the polka dot yellow long sleeve tee. The outfit was updated a bit, thanks to the faux leather trimmed side zipper on the sweater and the floppy hat. I’ve been in search of such a hat for a while, and love this one from J Crew
. It comes in more than one size (I have a bit of a big noggin) and it has the floppy brim without being over the top.
