Leaves in Lincoln Park

navy floppy hat outfit

Every time I visit Chicago in the fall, I always make sure that my friends and I spend an afternoon in Lincoln Park. I used to live in the Lincoln Park neighborhood when I lived in Chicago and I miss it a lot, especially during the fall! The tree-lined streets, the gorgeous foliage, the cute shops and restaurants… Can’t get enough. The Armitage area is my favorite.. Lori’s Shoes, All She Wrote, Art Effect, Davids Tea, Interurban CafeIntermix, BCBG, Bonobos for the boys, Pilates Inc, and more. (Apparently there’s a Dream Dry opening soon on Armitage, too!)

Speaking of Chicago, I spy a few ex-Chicagoans (me, Hallie, & Lauren) on The Everygirl this morning… Check it out here!

Layering a tissue-thin turtleneck under my sweaters has been my favorite way to later this fall! I’ve always been a fan of turtleneck tees and sweaters (#manrepelling) and they’re such a great way to add a little extra layer of warmth.

    I’ve been wearing turtlenecks ALL the time lately, too! They’re easy, warm and great for layering. I love how the beige and navy look paired together!

    Ahhh yes, Lincoln Park is my favorite neighborhood in Chicago. If I ever left NYC that’s the only place I would go. But let’s be honest – I’m never leaving!! Cute look. Love the hat!!

    I’m SO mad I didn’t buy those booties last season when you featured them. I LOVE them on every outfit you wear them. Any idea if Express will be bringing them back or do have you been able to locate a similar style elsewhere?!

      Aren’t they great? Wearing them as I type this, too. I doubt Express will bring them back. They had a similar style this year, but those have sold out, too. This is the closest pair I could find in style/price — http://bit.ly/1vQTo7R

    I love turtlenecks! They’re so fun to wear, because you can really dress them up or down. The little details in this outfit are perfect, like the ring, hat bracelets, and bag. Really beautiful.

    Gorgeous outfit! That hat literally looks so perfect on you, and you styled it amazing! Love the turtleneck!

    I love the idea of wearing a thin turtleneck under a sweater instead of a cami. I often get bored of wearing the same “uniform” in the winter!

    I love this look, Jessica! It might be one of my favorites you have done for fall, because it is absolutely something that I would wear! I love the sweater and you can absolutely positively never go wrong with stripes, so I love the turtleneck. 🙂

    Love this! I am loving stripes as layers beneath a solid sweater or poncho. It just automatically makes it more polished!
