Fall Fashion Faves

It’s fall! Arguably the best season of them all (in the Midwest at least), when the colors change from green to a wild palette of orange, red, purple and yellow, and you can finally start layering again without completely overheating.

I put together this collection with a specific fall activity in mind: apple picking! Each outfit, though simple and restrained, has a splash of fall color in it.

Our shirts are down-to-earth and unassuming, complementing our sweaters.  Here we find the boys' fall colors peeking out in a nice loud plaid shirt, just how I like 'em. Dad and daughter are in more hushed tones — their colors come elsewhere. Here our boy can shine, and you’ll be sure to spot him amongst the trees, a blur of yellow and black, like a lone bumblebee left after summer has gone.

My favorite part: sweaters.  Snuggled deep within their cottony folds we’ll be safe from the crisp autumn air, while keeping them light enough to prevent breaking out in a sweat while we traipse through the morning dew, visions of apple pies dancing in our periphery.

This is dad’s turn to mimic the fall colors, with a thick, comfy cardigan in rust red.

Say goodbye to your bermudas, it’s time time to cover those knobbly knees!  Clean cords for dad, rugged cords for son, and our little princess is in full moto-apparel with strawberry-colored knit pants.   Colorful, yet muted in nice fall hues, you’ll get a lot of mix-and-match usage out of any of these.

Okay, that’s it, get out of here, get your pie pan ready, and go pick some apples!
