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.
Hey loves! I am so excited to share with you today my favorite collaboration on my blog journey thus far, MARLEY LILLY!! When they reached out to me to send me a piece from their fall collection I freaked out. As you know, I love anything with a monogram but Marley Lilly is one of my favorite […]
Something that used to be really hard for me was that in-between season’s weather. I made it a personal goal to learn how to master the art of transition outfits. Now, I am not one for rules so I think wearing white after Labor Day is a-okay but, once September hits my mindset changes and […]
I feel like there are so many things going on right now. Some great and some not so great but thats life, am i right? I wanted to share some things going on as well as some things on my radar to keep you guys in the know. First, I am pondering lots of new […]
One of the things I am trying to get better at is mixing patterns. If you mix a pattern in the right way you can create an outfit thats so cute, and looks extremely put together at the same time. Mixing the J.Crew Liberty Short with a navy and white striped top was an amazing […]
So to be honest this is the first year I have actually paid attention and had the opportunity to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I usually forget or don’t care that much about what they have. I am a Nordstrom card holder so I was granted early access to the sale and I don’t know, […]
These shorts have been on my J.Crew wishlist for a while now. They are perfect for tucking in tee’s which is a go-to outfit for me in the summer. If you ever want to feel more put together while wearing a basic shorts-and-tee outfit, tuck in your shirt and wear a belt if necessary. I […]
Good Morning, everyone! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend and is looking forward to the shortened work week ahead. Only three more days till the weekend… you got this. There is something about the fourth of July that I love. I consider myself to be a very patriotic person, I truly love this […]
I was shopping earlier in the week (I know, I have to stop LOL) but I walked into J.Crew and saw this gingham dress that I have had my eye on for a while now and it was very marked down. I had to get it, I immediately thought it was perfect to wear for […]
Good Morning Lovelies! Hope everyone is having a great week so far. I am enjoying the warm weather so much! One of the things I am trying to do more of is have a consistency of long and short pieces in my outfits. I find that I am great when it comes to picking out […]
