Is it just me, or is fall one of the best seasons?! Thinking about the endless clothing options, the crisp fall air and outdoor activities are enough to put a smile on my face!
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is go apple picking. It is one of my favorite memories as a kid and something that I continue to love to do as an adult! For me, it's less about the actual picking of apples and more about the experience of being there (and of course dressing for fall and throwing apples at each other). For four years now, Brian and I have been going with his brother, Brandon and his wife, Mallory. I recently bought a new camera that I hadn't had a chance to test out. I took this as the perfect opportunity to Hoping to get better as I learn more about it. Keep scrolling for the best picture I've taken so far. Spoiler: It's of a donut.
Where we went:
Our favorite places to go is Becker Farms & Vizcarra Vineyards, perfect for adults and kids! We love stopping at the bar, indulging on hard cider and donuts before getting on the tractor, as the ride out to the apple orchard is hard to beat. Once you're out there, picture taking, collecting apples and OF COURSE throwing a few at each other is a must! ;)
Step Out Buffalo put a great list together of other orchards to check out! See them here.
I have been really trying to push myself out of my comfort zone when it comes to my style! So, when Brian and I decided to go apple picking last weekend I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do so! Pro tip: I've been searching clothing items on Pinterest for inspiration. For example, for this outfit I searched "blue gingham shirt outfits" and that's how I found inspiration to style this look. This outfit is perfect for apple picking because it's cute and comfortable! Usually, I'd wear boots but the ground wasn't muddy so I was able to get away with flats!
Shop this look:
- Green utility jacket
- Blue gingham shirt
- Medium wash jeans
- Aerosoles Betunia Leopard Loafer

Other fall activities I look forward to:
- Decorating the inside and outside of my home with pumpkins, gourds and cornstalks
- Making soups and chili, two of my favorite recipes here and there
- Carving pumpkins and roasting the pumpkin seeds, recipe here
