Practicality





Blouse- Marshall's; Shorts- Target; Belt and watch- eBay; Sandals- Gap; Earrings- Forever 21; Crystal bracelet- Charming Charlie; Pearl bracelet- gift

I actually wore this just over a week ago, but (unfortunately) it's still totally weather appropriate. Hello again 90+ degree temps. I'd love to get out my boots and pants (especially my burgundy pair I scored yesterday for $4), but my practicality says, "Heck no!" Ok practicality, you win for now. But I see a high of 61 degrees on Friday and I've got chili on the menu and pants ready to be worn! Please weather.com don't dash my hopes now. I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Well, hot weather be damned, we still went to the apple orchard by our house this weekend. The apples are ready and delicious and they will have their cider ready next week! There is a pick your own option we didn't know about so hopefully we get to try that this fall. We have 3 apple trees, but the apples are pretty small so they are fine for applesauce, but not good for eating. Next weekend we have plans to meet my parents at a larger apple orchard close to them. I'm already looking forward to the doughnuts!

  1. Apple picking is on my fall to-do list this year also. I don't think I've gone since I was little. I'm glad the crop is way better than last year's!

  2. Ah, the weather is just never quite right! I wish we could have a few weeks (or months) of 60-75 degree temps, but it tends to jump from the 90s to snowing pretty quick! I'm not a fan of winter, so I'm trying to make the most of all my summer clothes while I still can!

  3. Me too! We had no apples from our trees last year. The orchard by our house didn't even have enough to make cider for early fall so I have to wait till next week. At least I am lucky to have an orchard 2 miles from our house!

  4. Wouldn't that just be perfect? I like snow for a little bit, but not the way it tends to drag on! Anywhere from 30-80 is ok by me. Too much to ask for from Wisconsin I guess ;)

  5. Oh, I LOVE going to apple orchards! We have a ton of really great ones down where we live in southern MN, and we never made it to any of them last fall. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can make a trip some weekend and get some cider - YUM! I really like your outfit today, even though the weather isn't great - that blouse is darling and I love the mint shorts! We are supposed to have cooler weather later this week as well, and I cannot wait!

  7. Sorry the weather isn't cooperating! This is super cute though, polka dots + mint = win! (PS WHERE OH WHERE did you score burgundy pants for $4?!) The apple orchard sounds like fun, I wanna go to one some day!

  8. Aren't orchards so fun?! I think I like going to them when the weather is cooler though because it feels a little wrong to be picking apples and doing fall things when it's 90! It's supposed to be in the 60s all next week and I can't wait! It will be nice for the weekend.

  9. I can't wait until it cools down next week! Then I won't feel weird putting my fall decorations up! :)

  10. Thanks Kim! I got the pants at Goodwill. I had a good trip there this weekend! It's too bad they don't have any orchards by you!
