I had such a fun time apple picking at the base of Mt. Hood wearing my Billy T plaid pants. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, or so they say!
Growing up my mother would only buy the green Granny Smith apples. She fed them to me and my brother every day for breakfast before school. One day I realized that I hated that kind of apple, it’s way too sour for me! So I revolted and told her I didn’t like them anymore. Fast forward 15-ish years. I don’t think I realized how many flavors of apples there are out there in the world (thanks mom, lol). After visiting the Kiyokawa Family Orchards at the base of Mt. Hood I was so impressed by the selection of apples! Big ones, small ones, round ones, tall ones – now this is starting to sound like an intro to a hip hop song, and no I’m not talking about Apple Bottom Jeans.
I wore a casual chic outfit to the orchard. I knew I was going to take some photos, but I also wanted to keep the look activity-appropriate. Plaid is a fan favorite for autumn, so I wanted to incorporate this trend in a way that matched my style. I love the brand Billy T – they make the best casual and daywear clothing. These Billy T black and white plaid pants go perfectly with my off-the-shoulder-top and slide-on loafers. My black leather loafers remind me of Pilgrim shoes, and although you can’t see them much in the photos they actually were great for walking around and picking apples. And my feet weren’t too cold from the crisp autumn air.
My husband, Scott, and I had a blast picking apples and discovering new flavors. The orchard even has an apple that is pink internally! How cuteeee ? We went home with a basket of apples, and a lot of fun memories! We didn’t bake anything with our apples, but instead I ate them all. Like seriously, Scott didn’t even get to enjoy one. So needless to say I won’t be having to go to the doctors for a while now 😉
