Apple Picking

Madewell Dress, BCBG Belt, J.Crew Booties (last year, similar here and here), Ray Ban Sunglasses, NARS Lipstick in “Heat Wave”

On Sunday afternoon, my husband and I headed to Gabriel Farm in Sebastopol for a relaxing afternoon of apple picking. We ended up becoming members and I’m so excited to head back in the spring for fresh berries and other fruits. It was the perfect fall day filled with an adorable pumpkin patch and beautiful autumnal colors everywhere. Afterwards, we headed to Sonoma for a little wine tasting and dinner. If you’re in area or visiting, I definitely recommend taking a day to visit both places. We’re planning on heading back soon- possibly even for my birthday in a few weeks.

I love dressing for the occasion and what feels more appropriate for fall activities than plaid!? I bought this dress a few years ago for our engagement pictures (seen here) and wear it all the time. Although it’s not available anymore, here are a few similar options of my outfit…

Little Pink Bag

Vince Top (similar here), James JeansB Brian Atwood Bag c/o, Ray Ban Sunglasses, Sarah Chloe Bangle 

I’m pretty much stating the obvious, but I have a slight obsession with pink bags. I have this one, this one, this one and now this one! I guess I know what I like and I stick with it. I love the size and shape of this one- perfect for a night out- and the gold detailing is so beautiful. Since I wear more neutrals in the fall/winter it’s fun to have a pop of color through my bags or shoes. If you’re a fan of pink, like me, here are a few other gorgeous bags in a variety of pink hues…
