LOCATION : ROCK RIDGE ORCHARD

The leaves have just started to change here in Wisconsin. I truly love this time of year. It’s as if the whole countryside turns into one giant watercolor painting. Reds, oranges, and yellows blur together, lining the roads and up the hillsides.

As I mentioned before in my fall goals post, I missed the best part of fall last year. So this year, I’m determined to make up for it. One of the things on my list was to go apple picking. To me, apple picking is the epitome of fall. So I gathered up my family members, grabbed my basket, and headed out to the orchard. We haven’t had a family photo in awhile so we took this one as soon as we all arrived. The only one missing from the photo is my other brother Sam who lives in Denver.

I’m that family member who makes everyone coordinate outfits.

There are acres and acres of apple trees on the farm. Honeycrisp, McIntosh, and Cortland were the three main ones they had available. After learning about the different types of apples from the staff, I ended up buying a bag full of Cortland. Now I can make either an apple pie or an apple crisp 🙂 That blog post should be out next week!

I’ve been trying to find a pair of sportier-looking shoes that can go with a dress. I wanted ones that were comfy yet stylish. I also didn’t want to look like I just left the gym. As soon as I saw these Keds shoes I knew they were just the ones! I feel like I can pair these with pretty much anything especially since they’re white.

Earlier this summer, I was in a local thrift shop and found this nice basket for only $5! I thought it looked like the perfect apple basket so I’ve been holding onto it ever since 🙂

I was in Kohls the other day and found this super cute t-shirt dress. It’s really comfortable! I also like how the sides are tailored in so it’s not too boxy like some shirt dresses can be. Unfortunately they’re sold out right now but I’ve linked a few similar ones below!

Right as we were about to leave the orchard, the cutest little kitten emerged from the bushes! She was super shy at first but eventually she came over to us. Pretty soon she was purring like crazy and didn’t want to leave our side. I wish I could’ve taken her home with me!

It’s official, I need a cat.

Thank you, Rock Ridge, for a lovely fall afternoon!
