So yes, I’m back in LA and apparently I brought the cooler east coast weather back with me to Cali.  My trip home to the Garden State included a stop at Topshop in NYC (bought the floral dress above which has three cut-outs and bows across the back), apple/tomato/raspberry picking at an orchard, catching up with friends who I’m sad I don’t get to see more often, and going to my lovely friend’s wedding.  Overall, it was a fabulous trip.

Thanks so much for continuing to stop by here even though my updates have been lagging.  I plan to update more frequently and will get back to all your comments this week!

xo, Becs

    ahh nothing like picking fruit in the fall! Co-sign the bleached(?) work shirt for sure. The first time I went to Jersey I was amazed at how much farm land there was…that with all the good hoagies and pizza places made me like it a lot more than I thought haha

    Cutest apple-picker ever. LOL and I love that you’re picking raspberries with a purse on 😛
    Welcome back to nasty LA weather… time to bust out the layers.

    It looks like you had a fabulous trip home, Becs! I loved going to local orchards back in Maryland (there aren’t as many in the ATL). The last time Cath and I went, we both picked the same exact weight in raspberries (down to the ounce)- one of those freaky twin things 😉

    Loooove your topshop dress! You and Jenny look gorgeous!

    Happy Hump day to you too!

    I also love the ugg boots so much!
    There is no more comfy shoes!

    Many kisses girl!

    I love all the wonderful pictures of you, picking the rasperries, Becs with the basket of apples, the pic of Mel and you with Goofy!!! LOOOOOOVE!
    I hope all is well darling! Give a big kiss and hugs to your sister!
    I’m sending you lots of both 😀
    xoxo Sofie
