Apple Picking x Graphic Tees

BY TARA BURKE 

I know, I know, apple picking season is over and this post is extremely late to the game. For some reason I keep forgetting about these photos until I open my editor and get smacked in the face with them again. Soooo, playing catch up here! Well you guys know that Cailin and I go apple picking every year because we’re from Upstate New York and it’s what we do, haha. If you’ve been following us for awhile you know we usually go downstate. Well this year we kept it local and went to Bowman’s Orchard in Rexford, NY.

Chunky Chenille Sweater

BY TARA BURKE

Nothing says comfortable like a chenille sweater! I have a few in my closet from the actual 90s, but this one I got thrifting. Chenille has made a huge comeback this year and is being sold by practically every brand, but these sweaters have also been sitting in thrift stores everywhere waiting for the style to come back, so I’d definitely recommend stopping by your local spot before shopping at a big name retailer.

Embroidered Bomber Jacket

BY TARA BURKE

Bomber jackets are just the best for an effortlessly cool look. I got this flower embroidered one from Target and what makes it even better is that it’s sweater material! It is literally the comfiest thing and is so soft.

Autumn Florals

BY TARA BURKE

Don’t put away your floral clothes yet! You can style them in so many ways to make them work for fall like wearing a fun pair of tights, pairing them with boots or adding a chunky sweater and hat. I also like wearing florals that are in muted colors during the cooler months and that was exactly what I did for this look.

A Cafe Perfect for Plant Lovers

BY TARA BURKE 

We’ve been loving the “jungalow” style of decorating lately, so when we saw this plant wall at Stacks Espresso Bar, we knew we had to share it with our fellow plant lovers. Not much is better than sipping a latte under a dreamy wall of hanging plants.

Long Vests & Pretty Details

BY TARA BURKE

I have been really into long vests lately, so when I found this really cool denim Tommy Hilfiger one at the thrift store – I scored big time! I tap out at 5’1″ so these long vests add an illusion of height and give a simple outfit a sophisticated twist. I wanted the vest to shine in this outfit so I wore all black everythang and paired it with a pair of mules (I think I got from Target) that I’ve had for forever.

Sporty Vibes

BY TARA BURKE

We’re all about the laid back sporty look for running around doing errands. We also just like to get away with essentially wearing baggy tees and sweatpants in public. My look consists of an extra baggy athletic tee, a vintage jean jacket, leggings, wedge sneaks and a white baseball cap. I got the tee out thrifting and the jacket is from my lovely sis’s closet. If you’re looking to be a little more intentional with your shopping habits we’d definitely recommend thrift, consignment and vintage shops. We always come across the best finds for a fraction of the cost, you’re reducing waste and most use their profits to benefit amazing causes.

Favorite Winter Sweater

BY TARA BURKE

While in the 12South area of Nashville, (travel posts coming soon!) I found this great chunky sweater for $10! The boutique I got it from, Vinnie Louise, had literally just put up the sale sign as we were walking by, so we got first dibs on all their unique merchandise. This sweater was actually from their girl’s line. If you’re petite you can sometimes get away with purchasing from the larger girl’s sizes, so the sleeves were a little short, but I like quarter length sleeves anyway!

Slouchy Style

BY TARA BURKE

There is nothing better than a cozy slouchy sweater in the fall! If you’re searching for that perfectly loose fall shirt, you don’t have to look so far. I usually just find a style of shirt I like and then go up two or three sizes! I did just that with this shirt. I liked the style, but the only size left was a few sizes up than what I typically wear. I bought it anyways and now it’s one of my go-to shirts for a lazy weekend or when you’re going out to eat, haha!

Cailin and I can be found on any given day out and about photographing Freely Clothing tees!However, it’s been more of a struggle to get those great outdoor shots in the winter. The first spring days are just starting to happen in the city and we were excited to take advantage of it and get some shots in, so we thought we’d share a few! For any new readers, Freely Clothing is a pay it forward brand that aims to help you help others.
