Falling Into Fall

Today I finally embraced the season by going out to the local farms and enjoying all things Fall. My boyfriend came along for the ride (he’s still getting used to my blogging and photo-taking obsession), and it was so much fun! We went apple picking, cider tasting, jelly shopping, and of course – picked the perfect pumpkins! Other than each other of course… But ultimately, my favorite thing about Fall is the fashion style that comes along with it! There’s nothing I love more than putting on a comfy sweater and a blanket scarf to stay cozy during all the festivities.

Shop this look: Sweater – $39 (Nordstrom), Scarf – $25 (ModCloth), Boots – $50 (Target)

I was pleasantly surprised how well my boyfriend was able to handle the camera considering he’s not one of those ‘picture-happy’ guys all the time. But taking photos was actually his favorite part of the day! I don’t know why I never asked him sooner! Anyways, after some pics here and some pics there we decided to look around and do some shopping…

We found this cute set-up at the High Country Orchard Farm in the Greenbluff area of Spokane, Washington. How cute is this! I couldn’t help but gawk over the vintage wooden decor and all the cute accessories they had. If you’re ever in the region, I would highly recommend stopping at this place! They have tons of fresh, handmade food and of course – apple cider! Yum!

Next, we headed off to the Harvest House and picked out some pumpkins to carve; however, we ended up finding some local Pumpkin beer and ended up using one of the pumpkins to make a beer tap (you can find out more on how to do this in my previous Fall post). It turned out way better than expected! So don’t forget to add that to this year’s Fall Bucket List: Try Pumpkin Beer.

I can’t get enough of Fall and all the wonderful things that come with it, but winter is quickly approaching so be sure to get in all the things you want to do before the snow starts falling!

What have been some of your favorite activities so far this season?

Find a place neither of you have been before. This allows you guys to explore the city you live in more and find a special place of your own if you like it! It’s also the perfect scene to recap the events that unfolded the night before!

Tensions are high with finals around the corner and the stress of getting ready to go home for the holidays, so ask to go on a date with your roomie! It’s a nice gesture and can help build your guys’ friendship!
