The second place I wanted to show you on my mini tour of downtown Boise is the beautiful and lush Rose Garden at Julia Davis Park. Nestled in the northern part of the park right by the Boise Art Museum, you'll find roses galore, bees in their happy place, and tranquil places to relax and enjoy the scent. It's especially enjoyable on an early fall day when the weather is crisp but not cold. The park itself is situated just north of the Boise River (Boise State University is directly across the river), and the greenbelt (pedestrian/bike path) runs right along the river. The park also features Zoo Boise, the soon-to-be-newly renovated Idaho History Museum, the Idaho Black History Museum, and a pond with paddle boats available for rent.
It was warm enough to bare my legs for perhaps one more time before the chilly temperatures stuck around for good! That said, since it is fall (or at least fall-like...for now), I added a cozy cardigan and floppy hat to my simple white-tee-and-shorts combination. I actually think this outfit would have looked really cute with my denim skirt instead of the denim shorts, but I do like how the cardigan is long enough to cover the shorts.
This outfit highlights the Earth 'Zag' sneakers in burgundy velvet. I mentioned in my previous post that I originally asked for the boots in burgundy velvet, but after they sold out I opted instead for a pair of velvet sneakers. Two new velvet pairs of shoes may seem like overkill, but I'm excited to work them into my fall/winter outfits! Plus, as much as I love velvet and would love a velvet jacket, I need to be practical because cat hair also loves velvet, haha. I already need to have a lint roller on hand at all times! #worthit
