Outfit: Love That Keeps Me Waiting

Back when I was a little girl, it was a family tradition to drive all the way out to Sinnissippi Forest to cut down a Christmas tree for our home.  And we did more than just cut down the tree–we’d sip cider and eat donuts in the barn nearby, and when lunchtime came, we’d always go out to a little cabin restaurant tucked in the White Pines State Park.

Several years ago, the tree farm closed, and it was a deep loss for us.*  However, we’re keeping the tradition of visiting that cozy restaurant in the woods, and this year, I brought my parents there for their 30th anniversary.  Since the weather was so beautiful and the foliage in such high color, I just had to take a few pictures while we were out there.

Being out on this gorgeous land is really making me want to take a few days off and spend them in a cabin with a stack of books and my camera.  My phone doesn’t even work out there, so I could, theoretically, settle my mind for a little while.  The only downside is I couldn’t bring Mox!

Scarf: old, Charlotte Russe

Sweater: old, ModCloth

Shorts: old, H&M

Socks: old, ModCloth

Shoes: seriously old, Urban Outfitters

*In doing my research for this post, I found out the farm has reopened!  Seems like it’s got new owners.  Stay tuned for more details.

  1. Gorgeous photos, Devinne! And your sweater is the cutest thing ever!

    Your family tradition sounds absolutely amazing. And how exciting that the tree farm is reopening! My family had a similar tradition when we were growing up, but the family dog turned into a little stinker and would drink all the water out of the tree stand (instead of his dog dish) and dry it out, haha. We had to stop getting real trees after a couple years of that.

    Taking a few days off to be away from technology in a cozy cabin sounds heavenly! The hiking trail looks like it would be beautiful to explore, too.


  2. Beautiful photos Devinne!
    And that sounds like such a cosy and nice tradition. I would love to do something like that. Especially the eating doughnuts part ;D

    This outfit is super cute! I love the wee giraffes! Very fun!
    Much love,


I'd love to hear from you!
