These photos are a bit old as far as the internet is concerned, but I didn’t want fall to go by without getting a chance to share them. I can’t even pretend like these aren’t my most favorite ever.
Brooks Brothers sent Garrett and me three different outfits and they ended up being perfect for our weekend. Super fall-y looks for apple picking, colorful and casual for an afternoon at the dog park, and fancy outfits for a date night.
Apple picking has been something I’ve wanted to do since my freshman year at college. Between crew regattas and a lack of car, it never happened in college. And then I never seemed to find time for it while living in NYC for some reason. This year, I made it a high priority. I really just wanted to go for the fun and kind of for the photos (can I live?) but the apples were so out-of-this-world delicious that I could have gone every weekend just to pick up apples from the farm. Tastes so much better than grocery store apples and they have been really fun to bake with, too.
We were a little early in the season for this particular photoshoot (late September), which ended up being such a blessing. The apples that were ready were amazing and the farm, even though it was a Sunday, was next to empty.
Teddy loved playing in Central Park and I was pretty nervous about finding an equally amazing spot to take him once we moved. However, we found him an even better park if you can believe it and go as often as we can. It may even be one of my
favorite places on earth. The dog park pictures were a special kind of crazy to capture. Teddy was in full playtime mode and we had some of the cutest photobombers I’ve ever seen
. However, I think among the chaos, Carter managed to capture what has to be our Christmas Card photo…. I mean….
And saving the best for last. Guys, I’m obsessed with this dress
. It didn’t speak to me on the hanger but the minute I put it on, I was in love. I’ve already reached for it a handful of times for dressier nights out. I think it will look really cute in the winter with tights and booties
