Wow, this weekend’s weather has taken a turn… hasn’t it? It’s officially boot season, and sweater weather for that matter. The spices, the colors, the flavors and the fashion pieces are all coming to life.
My weekend was filled with a little brunching, and a whole lot of cider daze. Seriously, there’s nothing like a warm donut and a hot cup of cider on a chilly day. So, it only made sense to head to the nearest cider mill: Yates!
I’m sure most of the ladies out there can say that your ‘cider mill outfit’ is a big one, and takes some time to pick out. Really though, the cider mill is such an innocent and happy place – you’ve got to look good!
I opted for a faux leather sleeve sweater, thick ponte leggings and two-toned riding boots… perfect for a chilly day!
This sweater is my favorite because it doubles up as a jacket, and can be worn multiple ways! I had it zipped down a tad to create an imaginative scarf for brunch, then bundled up with a cowl neck for the cider mill.
The leather sleeves add edge and ensures the details don’t go unnoticed.
Let me just say that the details at the cider mill didn’t go unnoticed either! My boyfriend and I made sure to grab a dozen cinnamon sugar donuts, hot cider and two mini apple pies. We made it just before the long lines began to form, and before the rain decided to hit.
Other go-tos on my fall agenda: apple orchard, pumpkin patch, corn maze and haunted houses. And, two fall fashion pieces I need to invest in: a cozy cowl neck cape and a good pair of Chelsea boots.
SO. READY. FOR. FALL. FESTIVITIES.
I’ll also say that two-tone is a favorite of mine. Whoever said black and brown weren’t complements of eachother was mistaken! Fall definitely introduces a warm and appealing color palette (another one of my favorites) – chestnut, burgundy, olive, burnt orange and deep golden tones.
Speaking of colors, I can’t wait for the leaves to start changing into these gorgeous hues.
It’s such a wonderful time of the year. I can’t help but smile!
