Fall in NYC: Apple Picking & Pumpkin Patches

Its finally a bit cooler outside, the leaves are changing, and pumpkins are everywhere! It’s the BEST time of the year. One of my favorite ways to enjoy the cooler weather, is going fall festivals. Most are only $5-$6 to get in, score!

This past weekend I went to the cutest little farm out in west New Jersey to pick a few apples, a pumpkin and get apple cider donuts. I LOVE fall, y’all and I’m a sucker for any place with baby goats! Seriously, baby goats = 😍.

Fall festivals are the best, between all the photo ops, cute animals and getting to pick your own apples it’s everything that I love about fall time. Pro tip: wear comfy shoes, at least for the walking around part!

I picked up about 5 or so pounds of apples this year and I’m still trying to figure out what to do with this butternut squash.Β πŸ™ˆ

When I moved I only took five pairs of shoes with me. To guy this might sound like a lot, but that’s only a fraction of the shoes I own. Naturally picking which I would take and which to leave behind for now was an IMPOSSIBLE task. Choosing these shoes was a no brainer. I scooped them up at a local department store (identical pair here!) and I wear them all of the time. They’re surprisingly comfy and I can walk up to about 5-6 miles in them before my feet are done with them.

nyc style fashion blogger frugal budget savvyI wear this cardigan over just about every outfit. If you’re looking to build your fall wardrobe with sweaters, start with neutral colors like cream, brown, grey, taupe, and black. These colors are incredibly versatile and with go into spring and up to summer.

Plaid is another fall wardrobe essential. I would wear plaid everyday of fall if I could. Plaid shirts, plaid scarves and plaid jackets. If you’re looking to build a fall wardrobe or complete yours, add a couple of plaids shirts (this one is great!) and plaid scarves (I love this one!). Plaid shirts are low maintenance fashion. They’re always in style for fall and all you need to do is pair it with a pair of jeans, boots and a vest or sweater.

If you’re thinking of going to aΒ pick your own, pumpkin patch type of fall festival do it! It’s a lot of fun and makes for great photo ops. Especially if you have kiddos (including fur babies!). Do it for the insta. πŸ˜‰

What’re your favorite fall activities?

    I haven’t been apple or pumpkin picking in a while. I really want to take my son one day! Looks like you had a lot of fun!

    New Jersey looks really beautiful in the fall! I can’t wait to visit New York soon. It’ll be just as it’s turning winter, and I think it’ll be an awesome time to go. Do you have any tips or ideas of places to go if you’re there one day? I’m thinking the Rockettes will be really cool to do.

  • Lovely pics! Apple picking is so much fun!

  • Great shoes for apple picking, I haven’t been in years and I think it’s too late this season. πŸ™

    I love fall up north! Looks so fun.

  • I totally agree with your sentiments about neutral colors. I have become obsessed with them lately and if I could do a complete wardrobe overhaul on them I would. If I make it back to Europe for Christmas that’s all I plan on wearing lol. Those shoes are really cute too.
