I Think You’d Like to Take a Hike

Take a hike! Seriously. Because before you know it we (those of us that bravely reside in the Midwest, at least,) will be covered in snow. For this very reason I knew I had to get out and hike before the blizzards blew in and ruined my chances.

So last weekend Matt and I did just that. Although we missed the peak of fall autumnal elegance, it was a beautiful day and we happened to stumble upon some nice fall foliage and naturey goodness:

Minnehaha-Falls

Minnehaha Falls | Minneapolis, MN (Or as my GPS likes to call it MinneHaHA!)

So now that you can’t wait to get out and hike, what’s a girl to wear?
Well…

Boots 
Because fancy boots (although I’m in LOVE with these) might very well get muddy, a pair like this is practical:

Affordable Riding Boots *I wore a pair just like this all over Ireland during my semester abroad. Trashed them in the end, but the faux-leather lasted thru many a hike!

Layers
Because when it’s on the brink of winter in MN, you really don’t know what you’re gonna get! Any combination of these will do:

Scarf
Go for something cozy and cashmere like this infinity scarf, or a chunky cable knit.

Windbreaker 
The name windbreaker cracks me up for no apparent reason, but I’ve got this bad boy and approve of it. And this one is nice, too.

Camera
Because it’s fun! We (boyfriend R3dline Photo and I) shot the photos above with a Canon EOS Rebel.

It’s a chore, but so rewarding when you get it just right. Am I right? This little one in my bedroom is ALMOST there:

5. Tuft Stuff
If you’re a regular reader I’m sure you’re already well aware that I love a good tuft. Hence, my tufted chesterfield sofa, my new tufted ottoman (thought you couldn’t double up on the tuft, think again!) and my latest pursuit…a tufted headboard!
