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)!

Gingham Style {Old Navy Gingham Maxi Dress}

If there’s one print that just screams summer, it’s gingham. As soon as I spotted this dress at Old Navy, I knew I had to have it. It’s so effortless and classic that I just couldn’t resist. I threw it on over the weekend with red accessories for a stroll through the park with the family and felt perfectly cool and put together.

About the Fit:
This maxi dress fits true-to-size and hits just above the ankle on my 5’7″ frame. I tend to like my maxi dresses to almost sweep the floor for a more dramatic look and considered going with a tall. Unfortunately, it was sold out in my size. In any case, this length makes it a cinch to wear with flats, so I’m not too upset. I love that it has adjustable straps and a smocked elastic backing which means a more custom fit and plenty of stretch to accommodate a large bust.
