A quick search through my archives alerted me to the fact that I haven’t worn a proper sweatshirt on the blog since 2015. Truth be told, sweatshirts are right up there with flip flops, band tees and Uggs on my list of things that I left pretty much behind in college. But alas, since motherhood already has me pulling all-nighters like it was sophomore year all over again – I figured I might as well be cozy while doing it. So here I am fully embracing mom style with not just a sweatshirt, but leggings and sneakers to boot!

As I slowly transition out of maternity leave, I’ve been working from home more and more these days. I wore this ensemble for an afternoon walk with my little bambino and a quick pit stop at a local cafe.  I had a few moments to spare, so I added a cute red beret, jaunty neckerchief, and a swipe of my favorite red lipstick before heading out.

Growing up in Michigan, apple picking was always one of my favorite fall past times. Just the memory of the smell and taste of hot apple cider and warm donuts is enough to make my mouth water. This year, we headed up to Hicks Orchard in the Adirondacks to take our pick of sweet honeycrisp apples. As usual, I picked waaayyyy too many apples. So over the past two weeks, I’ve made apple pie, apple crisp, apple cider, and apple butter. You’d think I’d be sick of apples by now, there’s nothing like enjoying your own freshly picked fruit.

Since the weather was still cool and damp from a thunderstorm earlier in the day, I opted for new plaid raincoat and my trusty rubber chelsea boots. Wearing more than one plaid at a time used to give me pause, but now it’s one of my favorite looks. The trick is to make sure colors complement each other, and that the size of the plaids are similar in scale.

Target came through for ya girl once again in the dress department. In case you didn’t know already, I’m really into this Who What Wear collection (as evidenced here). Today’s dress is yet another beauty that I scooped up during their buy one, get one half off sale a few weeks ago. I’m really digging the bold print and the slight fishtail hem that gives an unexpected touch of drama to this already fabulous frock.

About the Fit:
This dress fits true-to-size without much give or stretch. I’d say it could use a belt for some additional pizzazz, but I wore it as-is for a casual stroll through the park with the family. The material is a substantial cotton that held up extremely well (even with baby spit up)!
