Hot Cider & Sweater Weather

Can you ever go wrong with hot cider and a stroll through fall foliage? No. The answer is always no. There’s just nothing better in my book! Every year we make the trip to Yates Cider Mill which is a historic mill along the Clinton River north of metro-Detroit. They press cider on site with locally grown apples and make a variety of baked goods. Our favorites are the cinnamon sugar coated donuts, so good!








SWEATER | DISTRESSED JEANS (more affordable option here) | BOOTS (regular and wide calf) | SUNNIES | FLOPPY HAT | PURSE (similar, mine is sold out) | EARRINGS

Along with hot cider and treats, our trips to Yates always include a walk on the nature trial along the river. Its usually a quite trip down a winding footpath through the trees and brush. K and I have been coming here since we started dating, at least once every fall. This trip we were able to stop by the spot where he proposed to me earlier this year. It brought back so many memories and will always hold an extra special place in my heart.
Even though it was a pretty warm October, the shade along the path made wearing this gorgeous pumpkin-y colored, bell-sleeve sweater perfectly comfortable. The wide scoop neck can also be worn off the shoulder, giving the sweater more versatility in styling. And, it comes in FIVE colors, including a bright red that would be so pretty for the holidays! Plus, its a total steal at only $39. I mean, how perfect would it be for Thanksgiving?!

My ripped jeans and knee-high suede boots are both worth investing in. The jeans are by Good American and hold everything in. The material is sturdy and thick, but not scratchy or uncomfortable. They have held up well to a wash and dry too. I can’t recommend them enough!

In my hunt to find good knee-high boots that would last (I could only go through cheap boots that barely lasted one season for so long) I found the ones I was raving about earlier this week, posted here, as well as these ones. I wasn’t planning on keeping them both, but the colors were different enough and they were both so comfortable and fit my wide calves perfectly, I kept them both. The tie detail on the back gives them that extra little spark and they are lined with super soft and warm material. I took my normal size and they fit perfectly. They are currently on sale for 25% off too, so that never hurts.

Hope you all enjoy your Thursday!
