apple picking + the perfect fall ankle boots

apple picking + the perfect fall ankle boots

So Kyle and I LOVE going apple picking (amongst other things, my full list of fun Fall dates is here). It’s become a little bit of a tradition for us. As soon as September hits we always keep our eyes on the lookout for a beautiful weekend afternoon and then we book it off from doing any other household chores or to-dos. Something about taking the afternoon to stroll through the orchards, helping each other find the perfect apples (while taste testing as you go, obviously) is super rewarding. It’s best when you don’t have anywhere to be, so you can just take time to enjoy spending it with each other, as a team. It helps remind us to breathe after another hot, humid and busy Summer. And it helps me reset and recharge for the changing seasons.

It’s funny because I also always associate Fall with falling in love. It was September I met Kyle, October when we began dating and by Christmas had fallen head over heels for each other. So for whatever reason, whenever we do these fun dates I always feel a little more sentimental. Though between the changing leaves, the cuddly sweaters and the cooler nights, maybe Autumn in general is a little more romantic.

On another note — these ankle boots!! I cannot get enough of them. Like I mentioned on Instagram, I bought them with the winnings from a survivor football league last year. And I’ve never once regretted it. The suede is so buttery soft, they are super comfortable, the heel is the perfect height to feel elevated but still everyday. UGH. I cannot say enough good things about these babies. For sizing help, I bought them in a size 8 and wear them with thinner socks. I am a true 7.5 in sandals but sometimes size up to 8 for boots to accommodate for socks. That’s the case with these. If you are in the market for a closet staple, I would HIGHLY recommend these ankle boots. They are incredibly versatile and have held up beautifully since I bought them. I have even spilled water on them and it dried without any staining (and that was before suede protectant). So yup. I love these babies. Below, I have linked my exact pair from 4 different retailers, depending on where it’s easiest for you to shop.
