It’s hard to believe but this is Aaron and I’s fifth consecutive year of going apple picking! We started as a couple with a few friends, and now here we are with two kids in tow. Even my sister joined us this year! It was a true family apple picking experience, and my favorite trip by far! I’m hoping next year my parents will also join us. Pretty soon we’re going to have a whole crew! ?
Of course I wanted us all to coordinate– it’s the blogger in me, y’all. I just can’t turn it off. ?So we went with a black and white scheme with Aaron adding a little color into the mix. Now that I’m looking at our photos though, I’m really wishing I had had a pair of red Hunter boots! That would have really tied it all together! Ah well, there is always next year, right?!
Going black and white is such an easy way to coordinate. If you have family photos coming up or just want to coordinate your children or with your significant other, it’s a no-brainer option! Almost everyone has a white or black top in their wardrobe! You can always find great black and white stripe options, regardless of the season. And a black and white plaid is also a classic this time of year!
My outfit base was a super-simple combination of a white button down, jeans, and black boots! The plaid wrap was the perfect outfit topper and addition of pattern and interest. My sister wore a super-subtle plaid with a black skirt and added a cream cardigan! Layla’s outfit was also simple, which is perfect for little ones! Anytime I try to layer her up, she tends to fight it! ?And Aaron’s black, gray, and red plaid all tied it together.
It was such a treat to have my sister there with us this year. It just happened to work out with the timing of her fall break. Of course I love spending time with her, especially since we lived so far away for so many years. But I know Layla just ate it up and adored every moment with her “Auntie Princess.”
Here’s to hoping that this is the first of many, many big family apple picking trips– and many cute family apple picking outfits. See- I told you. I can’t turn it off. ?
