Apple Picking at Carter Mountain Orchard

Virginia is definitely a state for lovers. Charlottesville is a charming college town with so much to offer, especially during Fall. Carter Mountain Orchard is well known for apple picking. It’s the perfect activity to do with your beau. Johnny and I had so much fun picking out our favorite apples to bring home! I highly recommend going early in the season, so you’ll get more apples to choose from! This will mean better pictures, too. These photos are from last year but I didn’t get a chance to work on them and post until it was well after apple picking season. They were part of our trip to the Virginia Mountains. If apple picking is something you’re wanting to do this fall, I’m spilling some tips, as well as the two things we wish we knew before we embarked on this adventure!

How to Wear A Short Suit & Rock It

As a working woman, I love an outfit that makes me feel powerful. This teal short suit is no exception. I’ll be the first to admit, I know this is not something that can be worn in every office or workplace. However, if you work in a space where something like this could work, I could not recommend it more. It’s a refreshing, unique twist on a classic look. Plus, since it’s different from a traditional suit, you’re sure to get plenty of compliments.

Styling a Corduroy Overall Dress for a Night Out

I never thought I would say this before this fall season, but I am in love with this green corduroy overall dress. If you follow me on Instagram, you may recall I styled it with a white silk blouse. I believe in having pieces you can style many different ways, that way you get more bang for your buck. I want to share a fun “going out” look I put together with this green corduroy overall dress. It’s fresh, unique and you’re sure to be comfortable, too! For reference, I’m wearing size US 0 and it fits perfectly. I will say the hip area can get a little tight, so make sure you open all three buttons as you’re getting in and out of this dress. Also, the straps are adjustable, so you can make sure this dress is the perfect length.

A Trip to Hunt Club Farm during Fall

Living in Virginia for the past few years, Hunt Club Farm is quite the staple. The moment fall arrives, or even a little before, families flock there to buy pumpkins, let their kids enjoy the rides or attend the haunted festival. It’s definitely a destination for families looking to get into the fall spirit and a big part of the Virginia Beach community. Johnny and I love to get out and explore what’s around us, so this was definitely on our list of places to visit! We definitely had fun and even ran into a few Color & Chic readers!

How to Wear a Corduroy Overall Dress for Fall

Happy First of October! I’m so excited fall is here and this past weekend, the weather in Coastal Virginia even cooperated! We got some crisp temperatures and it was divine. I wore this corduroy overall dress over the weekend and got so many questions on my Instagram! This is my second overall piece this season and I’m really digging the trend. This overall dress is retro-inspired but with some modern touches. The mini length is perfect for petite gals, I’m 5’3, and doesn’t require alterations. This particular overall dress dips quite low in the front, so it’s perfect for layering with your favorite top. I love this white stretchy off-the-shoulder top for a simple look. One thing I love about this particular corduroy is how stretchy it is. This dress is quite comfortable to wear and the sage green color is perfect for fall!
