Styling One of 2020's Biggest Trends for Apple Picking

Styling One of 2020's Biggest Trends for Apple Picking | Organized Mess
A few weeks ago Derek and I went on our annual apple picking date and we couldn't have picked a more beautiful fall day. I always look forward to our yearly trip to New Hope for an afternoon at Solebury Orchards. As much as I love Philadelphia, it's nice to get away from the city for a bit - especially during the fall. This year in particular I've been spending a lot more time outdoors which, again, comes back to appreciating the little things. Until COVID-19 took over our lives, I never realized how important my morning runs by the river are or weekend hikes at Wissahickon or a summer day at the shore. So, this year, apple picking seemed even more special than it usually does. A chance to enjoy a beautiful fall day when most days have been spent at home.

I wore this orange plaid dress from Doen, one of my favorite brands. I've shopped there for years, they have so many classic, beautiful pieces but this year their pieces seem trendier than ever thanks to the cottagecore trend that's taking over fashion right now. Aspects of cottagecore style have been in trend for a few years like puffy sleeves, midi length skirts and dresses but this year the trend has been turned up a notch with midi-length puff-sleeved plaid dresses, tops with oversized collars and ruffles. I wonder if it's specific to our new quarantine lifestyle. Maybe it's the desire for simplicity while our lives are quieter than ever. Again, as much as I love living in Philadelphia, sometimes the idea of spending this period of self-isolation sounds a little nicer in a remote cottage, surrounded by flowery fields where I could bake and cook all day and go for long walks in flowery fields. The reality though? I would probably last a month, maybe two, outside of the city. But there's always day trips to towns like New Hope!

  3. This is such a lovely outfit! The dress is my favourite piece. Apple picking is a lot of fun, it's great that you make it a yearly tradition. I went apple picking last month for the first time since I was a child, and it was so fun I want to do it again next year!
    Hope you had a great weekend! :)

  4. I loved this. And I've never heard of Doen. I'll check them out. I went to an orchard last month but all the picking was done for the season. But the apple cider donuts were amazing!
