You guys asked for it, I am going to do my best to deliver! Weekly posts on Thursdays. This Thursday I am going to share my beloved apple picking experience. Its probably my favorite post of the year to be honest. Apple picking, in my life, is something that’s really important to me. I think because fall is my favorite season and its kind of like the beginning marker for fall so I get really into it.
This year was the hottest October to date so it really threw the experience for a whirl. I pushed going with Nick until I knew that if I pushed it off any longer there would be no apples left, so we went! It was a cooler day but still so hot to layer as much as I would’ve liked so I settled on a sweater, jeans, and hunter boots. Key tip when apple picking: wear rain boots. It can get really muddy and dirty so I find that boots are the way to go. I threw on my Barbour jacket for added warmth as it was chilly earlier in the day. Needless to say I “did it for the blog” because I was sweating so much during my shoot. I was not a happy camper.

Once the photos were done we brought the cameras back to Nick’s truck and shredded our layers there and went to explore the orchid. It was so huge that we drove from place to place to ensure we hit all of the apples on our list. I am actually pretty impressed that my house is blowing through the apples I picked. We’ve already eaten about half the bag within the week. I’m impressed.
My favorite part of the day were the animals, obviously. If you know me in real life you’ll know that I love animals so so much. I was in awe of the cows, they were just the cutest!
For you gentlemen out there we’ll go through Nick’s outfit. Like I said earlier it was so hot out so he wore a simple flannel with jeans, and some Tims. He also wore his Barbour classic wax jacket over top during the chillier moments (and for couple shots).
I ended up having a really great time once we put away the cameras. Exploring and trying different apples was so much fun. Hanging out with Nick is always fun too, he’s my best friend. Our first time really spending the day together was when we went apple picking three fall’s ago with some friends. It’s kind become our little tradition. I’m sad it came and went but I am already excited for next year!
I’ll have outfit details for both Nick and my outfits below.
