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!

Fall Florals :: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Outfit

Happy Monday Y’all! This weekend was a busy one for me. Lots of blog work with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access going on, seeing friends and catching up on much-needed sleep! Shoutout to my blogger babe Maria Luke of Millenial Fashionista and her husband Parker, okay mainly Paker, for taking these photos of me!  We were blessed with slightly cooler weather, so shooting these fall looks weren’t as bad!

I know so many items are already sold out in the sale. Therefore, in this fall florals look, I’m focusing on items all fully in stock with multiple sizes available. This floral blouse has the prettiest ruffle sleeve details. I love this blouse because it’s perfect for work and wearing casually too. It has short sleeves, so it’s something you can definitely wear now. I love the darker tones, which gives it the fall florals look. When temperatures get chilly, throw on this cardigan for extra warmth. I love this coral color is a more affordable alternative to the ever-popular merino wool cardigan the past two years of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. While the cardigan I’m wearing above is 100 percent cotton, that’s reflective in the $32 price point. However, to make up for it, it’s available in six colors! Definitely snap this one up for summer nights or fall.

The Perfect Crop Top for Summer :: Mint Tie Strap Top

Happy Monday y’all! We got some gorgeous weather in Coastal Virginia this weekend. Looking forward to summer, I have a feeling this is going to be one of my summer uniforms. This mint tie strap top is the perfect crop top for summer. The length isn’t too short or too long, which is great for petite ladies. The tie straps with bows add a nice flirty and feminine touch, too. Also, I love how the ruffle top is layered, which is incredibly flattering for the bust area. This top also comes in black, too! Quality wise, the fabric is a dream to steam, ha! Plus, it is a nice weight and isn’t sheer or flimsy. One of the reasons it’s the perfect crop top for summer is it’s lined but doesn’t feel heavy. The tie straps allow you to really make this top fit perfectly for you, too.

Charming Spring :: Floral Tie Cuff Sleeves & Shorts

Happy Wednesday Y’all! Gosh, the weather in Coastal Virginia the past few days have been phenomenal! I’m remembering exactly why I love to live here, ha! I snatched up this adorable top with floral tie cuff sleeves during a big sale thinking it would be great for spring. Surprisingly enough, it’s great for work, too, which is always a great discovery. It’s a super soft cotton material and the swoon-worthy floral tie cuff sleeves are bracelet length. Plus, since it’s more form-fitting, it’s perfect for tucking into pants or skirts if you would like! I’m wearing size XXS Petite and it fits me perfectly. I also found a similar style top with an extra 40% off, making it $18! What a steal!

Blossoms :: The Best Shorts & Making a Difference

Beautiful blossoms make me so so happy! Coastal Virginia has a good amount of beautiful pink blossoms right now and it makes me so so happy. This usually also means shorts weather, which is ideal since I’ve been waiting for spring to finally show up! These are the best shorts are perfect for spring and summer and they are less than $50! I love how they are just a little distressed. Plus, they’re high-waisted, which is so flattering. I love these with a cute top or tank, such as this turquoise button down cami. It’s also a great coverup for one piece swimsuits when you are at the beach! A good pair of shorts is a must have for this season. Other great pairs I’m loving are these cuffed ones and these frayed ones.
