Fall Fashion Lookbook

Hey guys and Happy Halloween!!! 🎃👻☠️

I hope you’re all having a great and productive last week of October.

Any plans for Halloween tonight or this weekend? Let me know in the comments! I’m curious to hear what you guys typically tend to do for Halloween (if anything) around the world. 😀

* * * * * *

As you read from the title, today we’re going to be talking Fall fashion.

Who else loves the Fall?! Sweaters, boots, leaves changing colors, pumpkin and apple picking….ugh it’s all so great. Fall is probably my favorite season out of them all, if we’re being honest.

I love it even more because of all of the different possible fashion trends out there for it nowadays.

I’ve been having such a fun time the past few weeks putting outfits together, finding “Fall”-like locations around NYC and actually going out to be able to shoot these looks on weekends.

Now, I know I’ve still got a lot of learning to do when it comes to fashion, but I think I’m getting the hang of it little by little and slowly starting to expand on the things that I wear.

That being said, below I’m going to be showing you guys a few of my current favorite Fall looks. I’ll also let you guys know where I bought these things from in case you were interested in trying to check them out.

Also, just an FYI – Diego has pretty much become my official photographer for any/all shoots that we tend to do now. So all of the pictures you’re going to see (aside from the first 2) were taken by him. He’s always been good at taking pictures, but if possible I think he’s been getting better and better with each shoot that we do together now. He always knows my best angles ❤ .

Look #1:

Location: Central Park

Flannel: Marmot
Jeans: Express
Booties: Charlotte Russe

I feel like flannels are an immediate go-to for most Fall looks nowadays. There are so many different colors for them everywhere and depending on your particular style, you can either style it up to be super cute, or dress it down, to still look nice but more Streetstyle-like.

Look #2:

IMG_0905

Location: Outhouse Orchards; North Salem, New York

Top & Overalls: H&M
Sneakers (although not pictured): Nike

In my opinion, overalls are very Fall-like. I can’t exactly explain why, but I think it just has to do with orchards/farms around this time of year when people tend to go pumpkin and apple picking. I hadn’t worn any type of overalls in YEARS, like legit since I was a kid, but this year something kept wanting me to find and wear some, and I thought the look came out really cute. They were also surprisingly comfortable….that is until it came time to have to use the bathroom 🙃.

Look #3:

IMG_1147

Location: Bryant Park, New York.

Top (Bodysuit) & Jeans (Mom jeans): Forever 21
Boots: Charlotte Russe

I’m not exactly sure how to explain why I believe this is a “Fall look,” but I just do. Probably a mixed combination between the dark colored top and combat boots. Regardless, whenever I see these pictures and envision this look, I just automatically think of Fall. I also don’t TYPICALLY tend to wear all of just one brand in my outfits, because I like to try and mix it up, but for this look and the last one I wore single brands only (for the most part).

Look #4:

IMG_0502

Location: Pier 17, New York

Sweater: Joyce Leslie
Leggings: Garage
Booties: Target

Andddd for the last look…something cute, simple, comfortable and orangey! 🧡 These last 2 pictures were from my most recent shoot, last weekend. I wanted something cute but comfortable since it was supposed to be chilly this day AND the location we were shooting at was by the water, so I knew it would be a little colder then normal. Can never go wrong with a cozy, soft, oversized sweater and some leggings in the Fall. This is actually the sweater that I mentioned in my Fall Favorites video last week.

I hope you guys enjoyed this fun little fashion/style post from me. I know I don’t normally tend to do a lot of these, but as I’m slowly starting to expand on my own style, it’s definitely something that I would like to start incorporating more of on my blog.

So let me know if you guys end up liking posts like this, and I’ll definitely be sure to do more of them (also let me know if you have any recommendations for specific things you guys would want to see in these sort of posts).

If you don’t already, make sure you’re following me on Instagram (which is always linked below) to stay up to date with new posts like the above that I upload weekly now!

Thanks so much for reading. Please don’t forget to like this post and follow the blog if you haven’t already and I’ll see you guys in my next post.

Apple & Pumpkin Picking 2018!

Happy Monday everybody!

I hope you guys had a good, fun, relaxing and productive weekend like I did! 🙂 Today’s post is going to be about something SUPER Fall-like, which if you haven’t done, you definitely need to at some point!

I’m talking about going Pumpkin and Apple picking!!

This past weekend (on Saturday), me, Diego, a few of his family members, and some of our friends went to a farm to do some pumpkin and apple picking, and we had the BEST time. We went to Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard, which if you are from New York, it’s in North Salem (Westchester). I’m going to leave their website linked here for anyone that is interested in checking them out.

If you’re anything like me, then you probably haven’t gone to do something like this since you were a kid. Up until last year, I hadn’t gone to do this since I was in like 3rd or 4th grade and they took us as one of our school field trips!

Diego and I had found this place last year, but for one reason or another, only got to go by ourselves. We ended up loving it so much, that we KNEW we had to go back this year and bring some of the people closest to us this time around so they could enjoy it as much as we did the first time, and that’s exactly what we did.

We spent the majority of the afternoon there up until it was closing time for them (which was at about 5:30pm). We all had an amazing time and got to eat great food, pick a TON of apples, and buy some goodies from the store they had on their location.

One thing to mention about this place in general though, is that it’s all cash-only. So if you’re going to make a trip up here, come prepared with that. Personally, I brought $100 in cash and that was more or less fine to hold me off for the day and everything that we did. However, worse comes to worse (although I know people try to avoid this because of the added fee(s)), they do have an ATM on location in case you wanted/needed to take out more.

One of the really cute things this farm has is their little Country Store. It’s actually one of the first things you see when you’re driving in to the farm. It’s decently big, and super festive for the Fall/Halloween season.

Inside the store they have everything from baked goods, to produce that they grow themselves on the farm, to homemade jams of all different flavors, and even decorations and pumpkin carvers for the pumpkins you pick up there.

This is also where people would go when they place any orders for pies around the holidays to pick them up (which I’ll talk more about later on in the post).

Although obviously the main attraction(s) here would be the apples and pumpkins, they also have a ton of other things to do as well. There were countless amounts of amazing food vendor stands, little games and activities for kids, somewhat of a petting zoo for kids (which included horses, chickens, and goats), and even live music.

The food was AMAZING. Granted, I am a picky eater and will mainly stick to the foods I know and love like burgers, chicken tenders, fries, etc., BUT nonetheless it was all good.

I’m sure people would say/think that the food is slightly overpriced for what you would normally get anywhere else, but I think it’s pretty worth it considering everyone there  makes everything right in front of you, so it’s all fresh for the most part.

Something I highly recommend for people to try when you come here is the HUGE turkey legs that they always sell. From what I’ve seen, it’s definitely a best-seller. Diego absolutely loved it last year, and ended up being one of the first things he wanted when we came this time around too (pictured above).

Among the foods I just mentioned, they also had things like ice cream, fried oreos, cider donuts, fresh squeezed lemonade (which btw 10/10 recommend that you try the strawberry lemonade because WOW.), and pumpkin pie cheesecake.

IMG_0589
This is the strawberry lemonade. I believe it was $3 per container like this. We legit kept going back to get more, and by the time we left, we had gotten like 4 or 5 of them. SO good!!

One of MY personal favorite parts of all this was definitely the pumpkin pie cheesecake…….you guys, if you know me (as I’ve mentioned several times in several different blog posts), I am SUCH a picky eater, more so with regular food as opposed to desserts, but nonetheless picky.

 

HOWEVER, when Diego and I came last year, he managed to get me to try a sample of the pumpkin pie cheesecake they had there, and I swear I fell in love after that. So much so that I ended up placing an order for the big size that they had to be able to have that as one of the desserts at Thanksgiving last year, and I FULLY intend on doing the same thing this year as well!! So worth it, and they are all handmade by this cute little family that’s always at the farm!

* * * * * *

Overall, it was a really great and fun experience. Diego and I had a lot of fun last year when we went, but I think it was even better being able to experience it with some of the people closest to us this year as well.

If you haven’t been pumpkin or apple picking, but have been considering going lately and aren’t sure which farm to go to (and are in the NY area), I 100% recommend Harvest Moon Farm & Orchard. It’s a great place to go with a group of your family or friends, and is super kid-friendly as well.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and I’ll see you in the next one 🙂 !
