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!

Monochromatic Pink Fall Look

Monochromatic looks are some of my favorite because of how chic they are and easy to create. This pink monochromatic look is a one way I’m easing into fall. A monochromatic look doesn’t always has to be the same shade of the color. I love subtle differences because it can really make the outfit pop. This pink knit sweater has pom poms in the shape of a heart, which is quite adorable. This is a chunky knit sweater made of acrylic, so it’s perfect for fall and into winter. Acrylic is quite warm, but unlike wool and cashmere, it’s not as breathable. However, if you’re cold this is a great option. The v-neck means you can wear it off one shoulder for a slouchy look, too. Also, this sweater comes in white, lavender and tan.

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!

The Perfect Bootie for Fall

Happy Monday! Fall isn’t set to arrive for about two weeks but these booties are getting me excited. If you are looking for the perfect bootie for fall, the Corsa bootie is your go-to. One aspect I love the most about these booties is how comfortable they are. Thanks to a low-block heel and soft oval toe, these booties will not stand in your way. Plus, there is no break-in period required. Right out of the box, I wore these babes and I was walking on a cloud. The side zipper allows for easy on and easy off. Struggling to get shoes on and off aren’t something I have time for. I’m wearing size 5.5 and these booties fit true to size. Whether you have a long commute to walk or need to be on your feet all day, these are the booties for you.

Essentials For Fall :: Cardigan & Boots

As Labor Day arrives and the beginning of fall starts to show just a little bit, I love gathering essentials for fall. You just never know with the weather, so it’s always nice to be prepared for a crisp morning or cool evening. I’ve mentioned this previously but I love to get fall pieces during the Nordstrom Sale. My essentials for fall include a cozy cardigan with a chunky knit and a good pair of boots. The beautiful braid and knit detailing on this cardigan drew me in the moment I saw it. I’m a sucker for classic cream but it also comes in charcoal, dark hunter green, navy blue and a gorgeous rose color. This cardigan is oversized so I got size XS. It’s perfect for throwing over a dress like I am here. It’ll be so cute with jeans, a simple tee or blouse underneath and heels, too.
