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!

When Life Gives You Lemons :: Lemon Print Jumpsuit

Happy FriYay, y’all! Sooo,¬†Why did the lemon fail her driving test? It kept peeling out! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. I feel like I have to tell a bad lemon joke anytime I wear anything lemon print. However, how darling is this strapless lemon print jumpsuit?! It is the perfect piece to bring the sunshine wherever you’re going. I typically prefer items that skim the body more, but I’m loving the wide leg trend right now. Plus, it also helps when the weather gets hot. This fresh-squeezed number has built-in pads, so you can totally nix your bra! I love the sweetheart neckline, which gives this lemon print jumpsuit such a summery feel. One aspect I love is how effortless this jumpsuit is. Throw it on and head out the door and you are sure to make everyone smile wherever you go!

Love of Sunshine :: Little Yellow Ruffle Romper

Happy Monday Y’all! Yellow never ceases to put a smile on my face. Ever since I was a little girl, this bright vibrant hue is a go-to color for me. Looking forward to spring, this little yellow ruffle romper is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe. This color is sure to brighten your mood and make you stand out. Plus, rompers are so easy to wear. The little ruffle trim on the shorts is without a doubt my favorite aspect. The high halter neckline makes this a piece you can throw on and dress up or down. To dress this up a little bit, I’m pairing it with tan suede heels¬†and these fun tassel earrings. However, you can also wear this little babe to a spring or summer wedding with glamorous statement earrings. To make this yellow ruffle romper more casual, you can wear loafers and a denim jacket, too.

Gingham Shorts Dressed Up with Ruffles

Gingham is one of my favorite patterns during warmer months. There’s something about the pattern screaming quintessential American. These blue gingham shorts caught my eye the moment I saw them. While they are cut into a more casual shape and resemble fancy track shorts, they can easily be dressed up or down.
