It’s that time of year: time to pack away the breezy silk tank tops and unfold the cozy wool sweaters in an effort to stave off the nascent chill in the air. And the first sweater I aired out was this one. I snapped it up last year because of its similarity to a certain Gucci style, and its colorful stripes still make me smile. Last weekend, my striped sweater and I took a trip to an apple orchard to pick some Jonagolds that will soon find themselves baked into a pie.
Pre-pie, however, we availed ourselves of butter-drenched ears of corn on the cob, cold-pressed apple cider and the best apple cider donuts I’ve had in my almost 30 years of existence. Then we tromped our way around the orchard, pausing to watch pigs race around in circles, kids jumping on hay bales and ducks preening themselves near a charming little pond, feet happily ensconced in the mud-proof boots around.
Because nothing says fall quite like a striped sweater, a handful of apples and a pair of raspberry-red wellies.
