Fall has arrived, so you know what that means: apple picking, wine tastings, hay rides and such. If that's the sort of weekend you're looking for, then head an hour or two to the other side of Lake Michigan and explore Harbor Country. From New Buffalo to St. Joseph, there are thousands of fun fall activities to explore with friends, family or loved ones for weekend getaway, but you're going to need to leave your suits and stilettos at home. It's time to get a little country, y'all!

A knit sweater is essential. Go for a Navajo pattern like this Goddis one from Trillium boutique on Division. Dress the part just a little in distressed denim and a good pair of working boots from The Frye Company. Of course, you wouldn't be the style maven you are without a fashionable felt hat to top it off.—Suzanne Kopulos
