Country Time

10.18.2012


Red waxed jeans c/o Big Star
Thrifted Chanel logo tee from Wasteland
Brooklyn Industries assymetrical hat (similar here), 
Zara cardigan, 
Alexander Mcqueen hobo bag (last worn here), 
LF Wedge boots (similar look here).

Last weekend, itching to get out of the city, Micol convinced me and a handful of our girlfriends to pack a day bag, rent a zipcar minivan, and drive 2 hours north to a little farm called Barton Orchards for a day of apple-picking, hay-rides, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches.

While I'm a city girl at heart, I must admit that the country has its charm. The leaves were just starting to turn as we drove down windy roads in the Hudson Valley, the air was crisp and fresh, and we ate just about the largest meal I've ever had when we stopped at Cracker Barrel on the way up. At the farm, we ran around the property like we were ten again, buying corn kernels to feed the goats and alpacas, and getting lost in a cornfield for the better part of an hour. 

My shitkicker boots served me well at the farm, accumulating a ton of dirt, but giving me just enough of a lift that I wasn't trodding through the mud. And how great are the color of these jeans (again, part of my latest obsession with the color red)?! Something about their hue just screams Fall to me.
