Happy October! I can’t believe how quickly September went by, but before it was gone, my friend Lizzy and I squeezed in some apple picking. I’ve never gone before, so I was super excited!

We went to Linvilla Orchards in Delaware County and had a great time scavenging for apples and wandering the bakery at the market. Minus all the traffic, it was a fun way to spend an early fall Saturday.

Pie Candle

I was fascinated by these pie candles!

Flower Pots

These printed pots would be a great DIY project!

It was a beautiful day out too! Warm in the sunshine, but cool in the shade. Please stay like this as long as possible, Autumn.

Perfect Apple Picking Outfit

Denim Jacket – Easy Pickins (similar); Striped Tee – Joe Fresh (similar); Shorts – K-Mart (similar); Sneakers – Payless (similar).

Perfect Apple Picking Outfit

It was warm enough to justify shorts so I grabbed this linen pair from K-Mart. To keep with the casual vibe, I grabbed this pink striped shirt, from Joe Fresh’s fitness line. (I love this shade of pink). A light denim jacket (I’ve found a medium wash works best with my closet) and slip-on sneakers completed my apple picking outfit.

Any fun apple picking stories? What do you wear on your early fall adventures?

Some reading to start your weekend…

Enjoy your Labor Day/four-day work week? The holiday is a good reminder of what Americans haven’t mastered: taking time off. [via Huff Post]

From Time, a look at a new American Dream: moving away from the suburbs.

Just in time for back-to-school: colleges made for Instagram. Hint: my alma mater makes the list. [via Buzzfeed]

More good information for students: those highly-recommended study methods may not be so effective after all. [via The Washington Post]

Two must-reads from the Poynter Institute on women and journalism: first, The New York Times is lacking when it comes to using female sources in news stories, while two journalists founded a magazine to highlight longform journalism produced by women.

From The Frisky, just a friendly reminder that those before/after fitness pictures you see on Pinterest aren’t exactly the real deal.

I’m sure you’re over the whole Miley Cyrus-VMA debacle, but Kate from Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra has a great post on why MTV needs to step it up.

Any good reads I should catch up on?
