Reasons Why Fall is The Best Season In Minnesota [In My Opinion]
Well, it has officially been fall for a while now and I have come to the realization that it is my favorite season! But why is that? Because fall is just so beautiful in Minnesota! So, here are all my reasons why fall is just so amazing in Minnesota, or just the Midwest in general.
This has to be my first and foremost because what would autumn be if it weren’t for the changing of the leaves? And especially in Minnesota, it is just so beautiful. There are so many places to go to see how beautiful nature is in Minnesota, which includes the Lutsen overlooks, and many more. I mean we even have another article on Minnesota being a top state to visit in the fall!
Now, this is where I get excited! The browns, greens, reds, oranges, and yellows! I mean these are just so beautiful, especially for outfit coordination! You can wear jeans of any shade, or even go with a legging because now it is cool enough. The blouses, and boots you can now wear! But most importantly big flannels, army green jackets, and the plaid shackets! The options are just so endless, and then matching the colors of foliage just brings the whole aesthetic of fall to life!
Halloween (Spooky Season!)
I might be a little biased to say that fall is my favorite season because Halloween is my favorite holiday! I’ve always been into the supernatural and the idea that there is more out there in the world than just us, and the celebration of just that. Of course, you can never go wrong with a new psychological thriller or slasher movie to watch on a cool rainy day (or even a book too).
Now, this is a new love for me, and I think what really solidified my love for fall. We see the colors around us change, we change our outfits to match, we eat pumpkin bread and PSLs, we smell the cinnamon and crisp autumn mornings, but what do we hear? Once I found a couple of fall playlists I felt as if I could really dive into the dream aesthetic that we all aspire fall to be. To drive to work listening to songs that sound like the colors of the trees is just amazing. Here is a post on finding the perfect playlist too!
I didn’t realize how much I loved autumn mornings until I walked outside. The smell of the cool crisp air, yet it was still comfortable, the light fog still hanging above the grass, and again, the beautiful foliage. I mean sometimes it brings even an eerie feel bit just for a brief moment and it’s kind of exciting! And to be able to sip a hot coffee walking in the crisp cool air, I mean, say less!
I mean you can’t go wrong with Minnesota’s state fruit; the Honeycrisp Apple! Apple season is just such a beautiful time in Minnesota and lasts from August to early November! Not only is going to an apple orchard a fun thing to do/a cute date idea but there are so many good apple items to eat! Apple Pie, Caramel Apples, Apple Crisp, Apple Butter, Cinnamon Apple Coffee Cake, I mean I could go on forever and I didn’t even get to drinks! And of course, true Apple Cider is what I call the nectar of the gods! Fall is apple season and apple season is fall, and that is what makes it awesome!
While sometimes I do get a little sad I have to start remembering a coat some days, the weather is just unbelievable in Minnesota. Like this past September, we still had some amazing warm days, but I think we all celebrate when it hits the mid/low 60’s so we do not die from heat exhaustion. Yet if I wanted to wear a cute sundress in a fall color, I totally could! Then there will be days where I could wear my long socks and Doc Marten’s with plaid pants, and then back to a romper with a long cardigan, I mean I could go on! Fall is really a wonderful time to break in the cold weather because we are so focused on how pretty Minnesota looks and breaking out our sweaters and boots!
