Fall Capsule #1: What to Wear Apple Picking


Like I mentioned in Friday’s post, The Husband and I went apple picking this weekend! We visited our local orchard (Tuttle Orchards), and it was so much fun! We were one of the first groups there, because I may or may not have wanted to be there when it was crisp and fall-like in the morning (not when it was 82 degrees in the afternoon…thanks Indiana), so that I could wear fall clothes.

There were four varieties of apples available (Johnathan, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, and Cortland), and we quickly determined that we only liked Johnathan and Golden Delicious. We picked an $8 bag of these pretty quickly (what can I say, we’re naturals). We also ate apple donuts, which was a game changer.

We spent a fun hour there, and then headed home. It took us about two hours to determine that we ABSOLUTELY had to have an apple dessert, so I Googled some easy apple recipes and landed on this apple crisp recipe. OMG. Sooooo good and so easy. Highly recommended!

Have you ever been apple picking?!

  • Chambray Shirt: Old Navy (exact)
  • Vest: Old Navy (exact, three other colors too; such a great J.Crew dupe!)
  • Shoes (not pictured): L.L.Bean Duck Boots (exact – I scored mine for $25 when thrifting)

  • Looks like we basically had identical weekends. Except I went when it was 82 degrees.

    • Oooo! Bummer about the weather, but that’s better than rain! Hope you found some good ones!

    Ooo! I’m going apple picking for the first time this coming weekend near my hometown – didn’t know there was a place in Indy, though!

  • Perfection, all of the above! We have a great orchard we used to go to in Michigan (which has the best apples, I have to say) but haven’t tried one around here yet… now I want to hunt one down!

    • It sounds like the timing will perfect for you to move back to MI and then Mr. Hendrick will be all set and ready to pick!

  • I’m going apple picking in two weeks and I’m so excited! I love it! The place near me has the best mini donuts and jams!

    I’m going this coming weekend to pick some Golden Delicious, and hopefully at the end of October for some Fujis. I’m hoping the weather cools down so I can wear a cute fall outfit!

    • So yum! I think the Golden Delicious made great lunch apples, and fingers crossed that the weather cools down for you!

    Apple crisp looks soooooooooooo delish! I’d eat that for breakfast right now, thanks.
