What I’m wearing: Tank- Fabletics (couldn’t find the one I’m wearing, but I love this one with mesh detailing), Leggings- Kenneth Cole, Sports bra- Pink (similar)

 I’ve had such a fabulous time with my mom, and one of my favorite things that we did this past weekend, was go hiking. It wasn’t aggressive or anything like that, I would definitely need more prep time to do like an actual hike, but it was really nice to walk the trail, enjoy nature (especially in the fall- how freaking gorgeous are the trees?!), and take some pictures. Of course, we also wore cute activewear.

Where to go apple picking near D.C.

apple picking

On Sunday, Greg and I ventured out to Homestead Farms in Poolesville, Maryland to go apple picking. I had never been apple picking before but it just sounded like the most fall of all the fall things to do, so I decided this year was the year. And we went on October 1st and it was 65 degrees. All the pieces fell into place.

If you’re into apple picking (or pumpkin picking, or squash or really any other kind of vegetable or fruit that you can pick) and you like farm animals, sprawling land, and homemade apple/pumpkin butter, go to Homestead Farms.

Wearing: Dress- Lou Lou Boutiques, Shoes- BCBGMaxazaria, Bag- Zac Posen (linking to some other styles I really love, because I’ve linked my specific bag several times in previous blog posts, including here), Jewelry- Midori Linea

We really did have the best time in Miami the other week! The weather was perfect, the beach was just a dream, and I feel like I came back feeling really refreshed.

Of course I’m especially excited about my outfits, and I still can’t stop obsessing over this grecian-style dress I wore to an event at the Fountainebleau Hotel. I got this piece from Lou Lou Boutiques, the same place and trip I got this adorable blush ruffle dress I blogged about here.

I decided to pair it with these strappy red heels I got at a store closing blowout (I’m a big fan of sales if you haven’t gotten that yet). I think the white and red was such a Miami combination and paired really well together. Also, I feel like I need more strappy heels in my life, which I could wear for both work and play. I thinking about adding these (obsessed!) and these to my wardrobe.

I can’t wait to attend summer events on rooftops, patios, and pools. I’m definitely going to be re-wearing this dress, it’s just so easy and light, and can become a completely different look depending on shoes and accessories.

I’m working on editing my wardrobe and making sure I’m wearing every piece in my closet to give it a proper evaluation. Going in order down the racks can be a style challenge sometimes, but I’m having fun. And I have some really creative looks to blog about. Once I’m through, I’m hoping I’ll have a more streamlined closet, filled with pieces I’m obsessed with.

Have a great week!
