Mid-September is when it finally starts to feel like fall, and the first fall activity I always do is go apple picking. We have so many amazing orchards in upstate New York, so when I came home last weekend, visiting my favorite one was the first thing on my to-do list.
My family and I have been coming to this orchard every single year for as long as I can remember, and it is always what I look forward to the most come September. This orchard is rated the number one in the country (and for good reason!). Not only do they have the best orchard and apples, but they also have a distillery where they make hard apple cider and offer tastings in one of the barns. Rosé hard apple cider? Um, yes please! They also have the usual suspects: apple fritters, apple cider, and the like. So much fun!
This was my first opportunity to really wear a fall-appropriate outfit (it has been very hot lately!), so I broke out a few of the pieces that I have been most excited to wear… I’ve been waiting (not so) patiently to finally pull them out of my closet, so I did the first chance I got!
I purchased this top a few weeks ago and absolutely love it! I love this shade of red and the lace-up look it has, which is a trend that has carried over into the new season. This navy skirt is another piece that I recently bought, and I’ve already worn it to my internship a few times. It’s a denim-like material and I love the a-line cut. If you purchase this, though, definitely go a size down!
Lastly… These boots! I am obsessed with over-the-knee boots and when I was doing my fall shopping at the end of summer, I knew I needed to add a few more pairs into my wardrobe. These grey faux suede ones were just was I was looking for! They will be perfect come wintertime, too, which is a plus.
What are you most excited to wear this fall?
