Apple Picking


Yesterday was the most wonderful day I've had in a long time. It may have been the quintessential autumn experience. In any case, it was fun and beautiful. We headed up to Fishkill Farms to do some apple picking. I've never been apple picking before, but it was so, so much fun! Trekking through muddy, grassy orchards to find apples - which are delicious - and then exploring the pumpkin and strawberry patches was fantastic. I may have even climbed into an apple tree (exciting!). The afternoon was completed with some chilled apple cider and apple cider donuts, both of which were delicious. Later that night, we went to an amazing Jack O' Lantern festival in the area, but I'm saving those pictures for tomorrow's post because there are just so many! God, I really love autumn.

Oh, and just a note on what I'm wearing. This dress is actually the lovely Jasmine's! We're currently doing a little clothing swap. I actually almost purchased this dress a while back, and now I'm borrowing it from her. Thanks Jasmine!

Dress: Jasmine's from Forever 21, Boots: Steve Madden, Socks: Target



First pick!


And it's delicious!


So excited, we're out of focus


Oh, the pumpkins! Possibly my favorite part of fall



Awkward field dancing



What am I doing in this tree?


What am I doing on this haystack?
