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.
