Finally, I am getting around to sharing looks from my recent trip to Fearrington Village {see travel guide here}. While visiting, I really played up the farm vibes and started preparing for the fall season with light layers. Lucky for us, the temperatures were a little lower and the evenings were actually quite crisp. The first item I packed was my Hunter rain boots, second was this cozy sweatshirt coat from Evy’s Tree. Honestly, two items I couldn’t wait to wear. Also, two great items for the upcoming fall season. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen lots of photos of me in my hunters + read lots of captions about these rain boots. They’re truly one of my favorite items right now and I cannot stop wearing them. I love how they look with shorts, skirts, dresses, and of course, denim. The boots are perfect for making the transition from summer to fall. And again, go with so much! What I’m saying is, you NEED a pair if you don’t already have a pair. Seriously, you’ll wear them more often then you expect!

Since it is still in fact Summer, I styled the boots with shorts. I’m definitely a huge fan of crisp white shorts with rain boots. Something about the combination is so clean, preppy, and fresh. Everything I love in a look {plus some blue haha}. I think the combination is great when you’re wanting to spice things up a bit, wear something a little different but still be classic. My recommendation, if you’re trying the combination for the first time is to pair your white shorts + rain boots with a pretty simple top. Go with a classic button down {or chambray}, a white blouse, or gingham in muted colors. Again, the look will come across classic, fresh, and a little preppy. 

If you’re looking for an item to add to your summer to fall wardrobe, this sweatshirt coat is IT! You will wear it SO much! I’ve had it for a little over two weeks and have already reached for it more times then now. I wore it twice during my stay at Fearrington Village, once for a Barnes & Noble date night, once for an evening soccer game {viewing, not playing}, and twice while at The Lodge at River Run. It just seems to go with everything and is truly the perfect layer for late summer, early fall evenings. 

Stay tuned for more looks from Fearrington Village later this week!

      Aw thank you Nataly! It really is so cozy. I actually wore it last night while sitting out by a bonfire and it was perfect! Felt as though I was wrapped in a blanket.

      Yes, that is so very true! I wore it the other night for a bonfire in the mountains and that was the exact reason. Love those nights!
