Dress | Boots (similar)| Rancher Hat | Fringe Crossbody Bag
Last weekend, I headed to Oak Glen for some apple picking photo fun! 80 miles east of Los Angeles, Oak Glen houses Southern California’s largest apple farms. Apple pies, apple cider, apple donuts… you can find ALL the apple things up in Oak Glen! There’s several farms that allow guests to pick their own apples, with the family-run Willowbrook Apple Farm being one of them.

I came across this dress at MariBella Boutique, a local fashion boutique, and knew it would be perfect for my upcoming apple picking trip. The colors just scream ‘fall!’ Paired with suede low ankle booties and a rancher hat, this outfit is perfect for the fall season.
How beautiful is this crossbody bag from Hammitt LA? The bag is crafted with fringe-cut brown leather and gives me some major boho vibes. I absolutely love the gold-plated hardware and all the inside pockets (4!) that is perfect for holding everything I need. The beautiful saddle-colored fringe design is limited-edition for this season so hurry and get this bag before it’s gone!

My new friend Gerly (owner of Everly Made Jewelry) joined me in creating some beautiful content– she even took these photos for this post! Can I let you in on a secret? The pick-your-own apples season had not yet officially started at Willowbrook when we visited. I had brought apples to use as props! I’m happy to announce they are now officially open for apple picking.
We enjoyed checking out Willowbrook Apple Farm, it’s the perfect place to spend a fall afternoon. They have some animals on the property including mini ponies and a pig. You can also make your own cider. If that’s too much work, they do have cider and other treats, such as caramel apples, for purchase.
Planning an apple picking trip to Oak Glen?
Here’s a few tips:
- If you are going on a weekend, arrive early (~10 a.m.) as it gets busy. Very busy.
- Most of the larger farms such as Los Rios Rancho have larger parking lots but some of the smaller ones (such as Willowbrook) do not and you will need to park along the road.
- Check with the farms beforehand to see what pick-your-own fruit options are available. If you go to early in the season, apple picking may not have started yet.
- Come for the apples, stay for the fun! Riley’s Farm has an entire colonial village you can visit, stage performances of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, restaurant and bakery. Snow Line Orchard offers wine tasting and cider… and yes, they have cider donuts!
