I had the mindset that I wasn’t going apple picking this year due to COVID. A lot of things have been put on hold due to the pandemic, for me, it meant opportunities for adventure being postponed. When my sister saw that the farm we go to had a reservation system in place, we booked a date and timeslot. Then we went apple picking a week later which took place last Sunday.
Since I’m from New Jersey, masks are mandatory (and thoroughly agree on that). Also, can’t forget that social distancing is important too. Honestly, I thought there were too many people for my liking depending on how many are in a group. It was just my sister and me together so we kept to ourselves in the apple orchard. We had a fun time and obviously had to stop by the farm store afterward to pick up apple cider doughnuts, apple cider, and apple pie — the ultimate apple trifecta!
It wasn’t Fall yet when we were at the apple orchard, but it is now — yay! Anyway, I noticed the color orange all over my Instagram feed before our trip to the farm so naturally, I wanted to add some fall spice to my outfit. You can’t do a fall activity (at the end of summer) without dressing for the upcoming season, am I right?
So that morning, I reached for a burnt orange faux wrap dress I purchased from Madewell last year. I wore it for the first time that day and definitely love it for its minimal design and ease to wear. The temperatures ended up being in the low 70s making it perfect for me to wear a denim jacket. Voila — a layered look to invoke the fall season.
Again, happy Fall — it arrives today! Also, I’m happy to get back at blogging after a few years of hiatus with sporadic posts. You will be seeing more content from me for the rest of the year. Hope you all have a lovely week!
