Apple Picking at Solebury Orchards

Last weekend was our first chilly fall weekend and Sunday was a perfect day to go apple picking. I've been wanting to go for a few weeks now and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. The forecast was calling for cloudy weather but we got lucky with the sun managing to peek through the clouds most of the day. We travelled outside of Philadelphia to New Hope, Pennsylvania and as we drove I got to see fall foliage! I love living in the city, but being surrounded by buildings constantly means missing out on some of the prettiest fall scenery that is out on backroads.We made our way to Solebury Orchards. Upon arriving you're able to take a wagon to the apple fields and they talk about each variety of ripe apples and whether they are best for cooking or eating. We picked topaz, sun crisp, melrose and Stayman Winesap which are all dual-purpose which made picking even easier! We may have gone a little overboard and picked about 12 pounds of apples...oops. Looks like I'll be making apple pancakes, apple pie and maybe some apple crisp over the next week or two.I, naturally, had to try and look as festive as possible so I wore my new Modcloth cape coat, which I'm super obsessed with, as well as a cute acorn printed top from LOFT. It was so chilly that I was able to comfortably wear so many layers. The dark green sweater is one of my go-to pieces for layering as well. I love huge, cozy coats but I also love being able to wear a bunch of layers and being just as warm while being able to show a little bit more of the outfit beneath the coat.At the end of our trip we couldn't leave without getting half a dozen of warm apple cider donuts and hot apple cider. It truly was a perfect fall date.
