Fall Fashion

BY TARA BURKE

Being Upstate NY gals we’ve grown up around several apple orchards, so like clockwork every fall we go apple picking! It’s always such a fun way to welcome the new season, get some delicious apples, cider, and cider doughnuts…and it’s a great location for photos.

I like to wear comfy cozy sweaters as often as I can and this Volcom sweater is so warm and fuzzy. I like how the pattern is only on one side and how one sleeve ends in black and the other doesn’t.

My jeans are Wild Fable from Target. They are also super comfy and you can’t tell from any of these photos because my sweater is covering it, but they are actually high-waisted button ups! I finished my outfit with my clogs from MIA Shoes.

Do Your Thing

BY TARA BURKE

I’ve been doing more blogging on Instagram these days and this is what I posted as the caption for this outfit:

When you’re tempted to look to the right and left at other people’s callings, successes, & blessings, remember God chose you for a specific “thing” that He purposed for you before you were born. Do your thing, run your race, carry your cross. There’s freedom in not chasing after things God didn’t call you to, not running in multiple races and not putting crosses on your back that weren’t meant for you.

It’s so important to not get consumed with comparison and be confident in the purposes that God has for YOU and only YOU. It’s definitely easier said than done, but God has freedom for you when you trust in His plan for your life. This top reminds me of that and it was on sale at Target for $3 (lol) so it was a win-win on all accounts. I also got the pants and platform sandals from Target as well.

Fresh Flowers Make Everything Better

BY TARA BURKE

Cailin and I love having fresh flowers around the house, as well as incorporating them into our photoshoots. It always adds another level of creativity when you add props to shoots and we had a lot of fun shooting this one!
