     Here are some more pictures from my recent weekend home in Maine! On the Sunday afternoon that I was home my mom, grandma and I made a last minute trip to an apple orchard/pumpkin patch a town over from ours. We ended up getting there close to when the orchard was closing, so we had to pick our apples quickly!! But as we were leaving and paying for my apples my mom realized her car keys had gone missing somewhere in the orchard... we weren't going anywhere! The staff of the orchard and the three of us been to walk through all the rows of apple trees again and again, looking for the keys, but it seemed just as bad as finding a needle in a haystack. We didn't end up finding them, and my dad had to come and pick us up and bring my mom her spare set of car keys! The story has a happy ending though- the four of us got to have dinner at a nice restaurant near the apple orchard, and then two days later we got a call saying someone had indeed found my mom's keys! :-)

     Since we were stuck at the orchard longer than expected I wanted to take advantage of this beautiful light for some pictures! It was a beautiful fall afternoon on the day that we were there- the sun was shining but you could feel the chill in the air. I wanted to wear an outfit that was relaxed yet chic, and would keep me warm without being too bulky!

     While home I found a few old Aeropostale long sleeved v-neck shirts in my closet (throwback to high school!), and this navy one was the perfect base shirt for a layering. My mom got me this L.L. Bean vest for Christmas last year, and I love the dark purple color for fall! (I always feel so festive wearing anything from L.L. Bean when I'm in my homestate too!) Another gem that I found in my closet at home over the weekend was this old baseball cap from my high school days. My high school's mascot was the Rams. I never liked the way baseball caps looked on me for the longest time so I don't think I actually ever wore this once during high school (lol). But I realized on this trip home that baseball caps aren't so bad, and it perfectly matched the tartan plaid scarf that I had packed in my suitcase! Together they made for some prefect pink accessories for this fall outfit.

     As much as I'm in love with my new Tory Burch riding boots, I still have a couple pairs of my (much cheaper) fall boots from Belk from last year. Since these boots are already a bit worn I don't mind as much should anything happen to them, so I will be wearing these on any days with a chance of rain or for any outdoor activities like apple picking!
