One of the favorite fall activities around Northwest Ohio is apple picking at the famous MacQueen’s Orchard! MacQueen’s Orchard is a local family farm that has been around for over 55 years. Visitors and school tours come from near and far to check out the state of the art cider mill, pick apples, and enjoy warm apple cider with homemade donuts. It is truly a gem of Northwest Ohio and a great place to bring your family and friends.
This past weekend hubby and I made a date night (possibly our last before baby arrives!) of picking apples. Despite it being cloudy, the weather was a perfect 60 degrees for apple picking (YAY for being able to wear plaid again!). We came home with at least a ½ bushel of Granny Smith and Jonathan varieties.
I love experiencing different fall activities, but I really love fall for the fashion. Each season brings new styles and fall fashions always embrace the feeling of being comfy and cozy. Especially being in my ninth month of pregnancy (what!!), I’m all about feeling comfortable.
My favorite fall styles include J.Crew plaid shirts, oversized cardigans, chunky sweaters, boots (riding, Hunter, and booties!), cozy scarves, and leggings. The trends I’m loving this particular year are animal prints, plaid and tweed (no surprise with my Scottish heritage), and casual knits. J.Crew Factory has some great fall finds right now (like this plaid bell sleeve top). I also like shopping at Gap, Loft, and most recently, Nordstrom for the best fall fashions.
What are your favorite fall activities? What about your favorite fall fashions?
