Cabin Fever

The Cabin is to the Twin cities what the Hamptons are to Manhattan. Every weekend of the summer your neighbors disappear "up north" or to Wisconsin (humorous that in the land of 10,000 lakes most lake cabins happen to be across the state line?). They fish for wall eye, swim, and make s'mores while fighting off mosquitos with 3m powered Deet. Not exactly my cup of tea but a family tradition I must participate in nonetheless. So, as everyone packs up for one last weekend of outdoor fun here are my cozy cabin picks that transition into Fall seamlessly!
Plaid shirts are big this season and I love the tunic shape of this Pattern Duo Tunic at Anthropologie - $78
(Also, it takes me back a bit to '93 when I fully rocked the grunge look)

I'm ditching my Uggs this winter in favor of some classic Hunter Wellies - $115 - perfect for wading in streams while flyfishing?, splashing in puddles with the kids, and lined with welly socks in the snow.

Who wants to worry about bad hair when you're on vacation? These super cute headbands from Live Savvy - $20 - take you from frump to fab with no effort at all!

I love this Poplin Cargo Jacket at J Crew - $78 - for early morning walks, cozy campfire nights and everything in between. Even better, it's on sale! A nice alternative to the ubiquitous hoodie.

Last but not least, a proper pair of pajamas are necessary when you have to make breakfast with the inlaws. I've been seriously obsessed with this Boyfriend PJ Top by Steven Alan - $160 - although the price tag is a little steep. Totally classic, menswear inspired Navy microdots with white piping. I'd have these monogrammed in a beautiful script and wear them to death.
Happy Labor Day xoxo!

  1. i wore my live savvy headband almost every day of vacation this summer. such an easy fix for an otherwise boring outfit.

    and the hunter wellies are way cute, but i doubt i could ever get my incredible hulk calves in them :( .

  2. I have the same problem with my calves! and my short little legs have a hard time with knee high boots but they do a cute shorter version too...


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
