This past Saturday Nick and I celebrated our annual Fall Day (our 6th one!) In case you need a refresher, this is the day we visit our favorite farm to pick pumpkins, then spend the day sipping warm apple cider and watching scary movies together. I know it probably sounds pretty #basic and unoriginal these days, but we started this little tradition when we were dating semi-long distance, and it's been something we've kept up every year, no matter how trendy loving Fall gets. We love it too, and this year was no different! (You can see past Fall Day snaps here and here.)
I've pretty much got my outfit for Fall Day down pat: skeleton sweater, jeans, boots, and a field jacket (depending on the weather.) My skeleton sweater is one of my favorite pieces in my closet and I've practically worn it to death (pun intended.) It's already suffered a torn shoulder and has probably shrunken a little too much in the wash, but I won't part with it - especially this time of year.
This year I added a new accessory to the mix - my new wooden watch from JORD. Nick got me a watch last year for Christmas and I've worn it just about every day since. But like most jewelry and accessories, it's fun to mix it up and wear different pieces. This JORD watch is such a unique addition to my wardrobe - it's made from wood, so it's super light and easy to wear. When I think of fall, I think of being outdoors, warm campfires, colorful trees, and crunchy leaves - this gold and zebrawood piece reminds me of all of those things and fits perfectly into my fall style.
If you're unfamiliar with JORD, they make both men's and women's timepieces in eight different styles of wood. They're passionate about making more than just a watch - they want to tell a story: "The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time." Keep reading below for a chance to win your own!
This Fall Day was unseasonably warm, so I stripped off my coat to find our perfect pumpkin (it's green!) We took the short hayride back to the entrance of the farm and finished our trip with a stop in the wine shop to pick up a bottle of our favorite Cocoa Vino. It's about a 30-minute drive to/from the farm, so we jammed to our Halloween playlist in the car and finally arrived home to hunker down for a day of movies and snuggling with our ever-growing kitties.
