The Apple Festival




 

This weekend Sean and I had the pleasure of visiting our local apple/pumpkin orchard for an Apple Festival! I take the opportunity to attend these types of festivals whenever possible, mostly because I adore hayrides and the like. You get a ride out to the orchards on a tractor driven by a cute old man who looks like Santa Claus (bonus points, we saw a car in the field/parking lot that had the license plate MRSCLAUS so I'm pretty sure we actually did see Santa himself in his off season). They drive you out to the orchards of various apple varieties and you can walk around picking and eating to your heart's content. Sean and I saw a chubby little darling girl with glasses eat about three apples in one sitting on the hayride back. Some of my favorite moments were watching and listening to the children throughout the day. There rosy cheeks and giggles were so endearing.



This is one of the hats I picked up at a vintage rummage sale this weekend. I thought it was absolutely the perfect thing to wear considering its candy apple red color and little bunch of fruit sticking out the side of it. I wanted to match my surroundings, so I had to wear apple red and green for an outing such as this. This gray wool skirt was only 50 cents and I know I will get a ton of use out of this basic during the colder months. The sweater is from another rummage sale and was around a dollar or so. So, a fully rummaged ensemble! My favorite :)


I tried something different with my hair! I was trying to do something else with it completely but it wasn't working out, so I just began rolling it up from the bottom and made a little 30's bob? Not sure but it was perfect for this little topper and I think I'll be trying it again. If I can recreate it there may even be a tutorial soon...:)
Sean and I had to hit up walmart in the afternoon as well and I always laugh at the reactions I get from normal folk. One of the walmart workers was a young girl, probably about my age and she was just fascinated by my attire. She asked if I was just in a play and I told her no. She wouldn't believe me! She was convinced I was joking when I told her I dress like this all the time. Then she told me how cool it was and how she and her sister have always been fascinated by past eras. She said, "I wish I could've dressed like that, if my parents had let me!"  I thought to myself, you should just start dressing like that now! I sure enjoy it :)


Have a great day all!
God Bless, 
KJA

Awuh, I love that you made a hairdo specifically for your hat! How cute is that? I love what you did and it accents your hat so well, Miss Katie!

Oh my, I can't get over how lovely these photos are. The green and the red together like that pop so well... and your lipstick is stunning! You're always so model-esuqe. And I'm so glad that you got a compliment on your pretty outfit. I'm sure lots of people think you dress amazing but just don't have the guts to say it. :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!~
