Minnesota provides its residents with ample and justifiable reasons to complain about the weather. This is the land of the six-month winter and the 15-second spring, people. Usually, autumn is around 15 seconds long, too, and full of rain and gray skies and general ominousness. But this autumn? It has been warm. It has been sunshiney. It has been nearly TWO FULL MONTHS LONG. And even though I’ve been sick for most of it, I have been grateful for every bright, 60-degree day. I did bare legs and boots, got some use out of my vast collection of mid-weight jackets, and soaked up the loveliest MN fall I can remember. It’s in the 40s now, but I’m still riding high on the gorgeous weeks we’ve had all season.

How’s your season going? Are you getting the weather you hope for, or just pushing through?

I tend to like things neat and tidy. Over the years, I’ve had to adjust my expectations because the world is not a neat and tidy place. My hair is not a neat and tidy ecosystem. And these boots – which have been on my wishlist for more than five years and got nabbed six months ago on eBay – are meant to be kinda undone and messy looking. They scrunch and pucker and the straps curl and stick out on everyone. And seeing as they’re comfy and gorgeous, I’m happy to let them do their thing.

How are you with clothes that look naturally undone or messy? I’m sure some of you can tolerate wrinkled linen – it drives me batty, and I just avoid the stuff. Scarf ties? Distressed jeans? Anything that’s kind of sloppy by nature but just works for you?

This outfit was worn for a curled-up reading session. HM and I continue to carve out weekend time for reading, mostly in local cafes where we can sip warm beverages. I’m a sucker for Caribou’s dark chocolate hot chocolate. In fact, it’s spoiled me on all other cafe hot chocolates – they all seem wimpy in comparison. So when I say “local cafes” I mostly mean “nearby Caribous.” Though we do try to mix it up sometimes.

Are you a weekend reader? Weekend cafe-frequenter?
