What’s that phrase again? As American as apple pie?
As the idiom goes, few things are more quintessentially Yankee than apple pie, baseball (hats) and Tommy Hilfiger. And so, on a recent trek to our local apple orchard, I thought it most appropriate to don a Hilfiger baseball cap sewn with a vintage-inspired felt “H” that I like to pretend stands for Hannah (viva la monogram!). A cozy knit atop my go-to chambray popover fit the bill for comfort and warmth, while a requisite Zara plaid scarf was ready and waiting for a chilly October breeze to rustle through the apple tree leaves.
For the sake of functionality—and, let’s be honest, fashion—I begrudgingly tempered by All-American look with a new pair of Hunter wellies, beautifully unadorned in all their British glory. Anyway, Brits like apple pie too, right? I’ve found that apart from their trendy appeal, these raspberry-hued rubber beauts are lighter weight and far more comfortable than their less spendy counterparts. I also appreciate that they come in a shorter size, making them much more proportionally appropriate for my five-foot-three frame.
A crisp autumn afternoon spent tromping through tall grass in search of the perfect assortment of ripe apples is one well spent, in my opinion, and made all the richer by cozy clothes and charming company.

The holidays will soon be upon us, which means it’s just about time to get started on buying gifts. So, over the next few weeks I’ll be posting a 12-part series featuring my picks for chic presents. For my first 12 Days of Christmas Shopping post, I’ve rounded up a dozen of the most brightly hued, deliciously warm winter scarves.
Ever since this beauty popped up everywhere last year, plaid blanket scarves have been the neckwear du jour for the sartorially inclined. It seems that the blogging community selects one It Scarf at a time, everyone rushes to buy it, and it sells out immediately. Accordingly, I’ve selected 12 scarves that are each worthy of their own obsessions—and aren’t sold out yet.
This festively striped Zara scarf is definitely at the top of my Christmas list, and I’m thinking of adding this ASOS option to my closet before the holiday celebrations begin. I love giving and receiving scarves as gifts, so hopefully this inspires your shopping this year!
The ’90s are back in a big way.
Fashion repeats itself, and we’ve all watched as decades past paraded back into our lives (bellbottoms, anyone?). ’80s neons recently returned with a vengeance, and now it seems that the ’90s are back and much, much better than before.
Crop tops and mirrored sunnies played an important role in this summer’s street style, and will no doubt strut into next summer as well. For fall we’ll see no shortage of dark lips, tartan prints and platforms. And thanks to Dannijo, we have the rebirth of the choker to look forward to. As long as those butterfly clips stay in the past, this is one sartorial decade that I’m happy to say hello (again) to.
