A rainy night can’t keep a happy hour at bay. We recently braved some chilly temperatures and layered up with some fall favorites in order to have the happiest of hours in Hopkins. Right now is all about the transitional clothing, trying to leave the summer behind without welcoming fall too soon can be a challenge. I really try to mix pieces from both seasons in one outfit to get a transitional look.  Pairing a light blouse or t-shit  with a scarf gives a fall feeling but with a brighter finish. Dresses with booties or a skirt with a long sleeve shirt and a jean jacket are great ways to get through the early fall season.

With rain in the forecast, there is a short season for wellies and now is the time! I try to take advantage of this whenever I can. Now is also the perfect time of year to wear flats, sandals are about to be packed away and boots seem too aggressive. My favorite flats right now are printed, quilted, studded and pointed!

Minnesota has been experiencing unseasonably cool temperatures and rain the last couple of days. Whenever rain is in the forecast I pull out my Hunter wellies. They are one of the most iconic rain boots in the world and there are so many styles and colors to choose from, I try to find any reason to wear them.

I layered by look with a black puffer vest and distressed jeans to keep warm. This puffer goes with everything, I think I wear it at least once a week in the fall and winter months. If you are looking for something light, fashionable and warm try out this J.Crew puffer. It comes in many colors, but beware it does sell out by the end of the season. I tried to get this black one last Christmas, not only were the sold out but not reordering so I had to search from store to store and wait for one to be returned.

This blouse from Loft is one of my favorite staples; it has the perfect amount of swing and is not too boxy. It is a twist on the traditional white blouse and I am in love. I like to add a longer necklace with the blouse for something unexpected and subtle. We are back in the seventies and eighties starting today, but I secretly can’t wait for the fall season and the clothes that go along with a little chill in the air!
