Hello, Fall!

I love seasonal photos and what fall is complete with a trip or two (or three!) to the orchard to go apple picking?!? I love going to the Willow View Farm to go apple picking. They have amazing apple cider and this year I tried the apple cider slush….amazing!!  For today’s post I am sharing a pretty ruffled dress and a fun fishtail braid hairstyle that I love.

The colour of this dress is what caught my eye. I love the pretty pattern and the ruffle details and knew it would be perfect for apple picking. It just happens to be on sale, which is also something to like. They also have a top in a very similar pattern if dresses aren’t your thing.

Who Loves Apple Picking?

I have several pairs of Hunter boots and since I live in a rainy area, I get a lot of use out of them this time of year.  The black ones are always what I wear most. I have regular and also a wedged pair, which I adore. Hunter boots are great to wear apple picking or to any farm or flower field where it may be muddy.

Remember when an apple and a blackberry were just fruits?

A big thanks to my gorgeous friend Krista Alexander for doing my hair in this amazing fishtail halo braid.   Also, a special thank you to Rachel Ludwig Photography for always taking the most amazing photos. ❤

An apple a day will keep anyone away if thrown hard enough.

Have a fabulous week!  I hope the weather here gets better. The rain and wind can stop now and I will be okay with that. Do you have any plans to go apple picking soon?

  40. Aww Bella seeing you wearing your Hunter Wellies makes me very happy, you look gorgeous, it’s quite wet where I live so I wear my Wellies a lot and also have several pairs including a pair of glossy black Huntress Wellies which I wear when I go to work on a wet day, they go well with my sheer black nylon Stockings.
