Biting the bullet, because it feels weird to post photos that are nearly three weeks old, when -- to me -- I now look totally different. Yay, haircuts. It's still settling in to itself, but man, my head feels lighter. So, a quick break from St. Louis outfits to show you what I wore this past weekend.

On Sunday, Chris and I had exactly four hours to do something, so we decided on apple picking. Huge, gigantic mistake. Where we ended up turned out to be ground zero for family-fall-fun-fest-extravaganza and just not our cup of tea. But, despite the lack of apples, this was the perfect apple picking outfit -- A cozy sweater, easy jeans, and a big bag to stuff my camera (and everything else) into. 
What I wore:
Sweater: TjMaxx
Jeans: Madewell/ Avalon Exc.
'Arizona' bag c/o BaliELF
Boots: Seychelles 'Lucky Penny'
Owl claw necklace: Black Sparrow (gift)
Chain bracelet: Thrifted
Hat: Target

I wore this for a failed attempt at apple-picking

Saw your new hair on instagram the other day, you look wonderful! I too just took a lot off mine and I'm still getting used to it. I love this easy and cute outfit even if the event wasn't your cup of tea!

I feel like you live in Pittsburgh, so do i! (Newly!) And weird I went apple picking on Sunday too. Listen I might have been at the same ground zero family zoo you were at. But, I sucked it up and brought home the bacon (or apples). There has to be better apple picking farms around Pittsburgh? It was a disaster at that place!

I cut off all my hair too and it was the biggest relief! Also, I was happy to find that hats stay on my head so much better! Perfect for non-apple apple picking.
