Pear Picking at Honey Pot Hill

On me: BP scarf, J.Crew tee, Uniqlo vest (review), J.Brand jeans (old), boots c/o Sorel
On Nick: Nordstrom sweater, J.Crew shirt, Levis jeans, Clarks boots

While leaving Honey Pot Hill with our bellies full of donuts, our eyes perked up at signs for pear picking. Picking and eating apples off the trees are an annual favorite activity of ours, but pears would be a first. We went back to do just that and it was so worth it – these were the sweetest pears I’ve ever crunched into! If you live in the vicinity I’d highly suggest going (FYI their site says this is the last weekend for pears, and you can mix and match with apples in your bag).

For fellow ladies who shop for their men, I wanted to share this half zip sweater from Nordstrom that’s a layering staple. It’s good quality at 95% cotton / 5% cashmere, and my favorite little detail is the brown zipper pull. Another one of Nick’s favorite sweaters is a Ted Baker cardigan from last year that I noticed has been brought back this season at Nordstrom only. Guys have it so easy with their foolproof uniform of button-ups under sweaters – they just need a handful of each and can wear them on rotation all year.

And yes I finally gave into Sorel boots, a favorite of all my friends here (& apparently the rest of New England) for keeping feet toasty and dry. My personal favorite style is these Winter Fancy Lace IIs (comes in 3 colors – I’m wearing the grizzly bear / elk combo) which are waterproof and insulated like most of their boots, but more wearable in my opinion for everyday outfits than their intense Joan of Arc signature eskimo-y snowboots. Perhaps I’ll change my mind though when we’re 5 feet under another snowmageddon later this year!

Don’t let these pics fool you…I have the worst balancing abilities and Nick wasn’t helping. While I was on his shoulders trying to diligently pick fruit, he kept terrorizing me by swooping and stooping for big pears that caught his eye, not to mention munching on all the good ones I picked!

    Hello! A lot of the reviews for the Sorel boots mentioned that the size was smaller than expected. Do you recommend sizing up by one full size or half size?

  • Yvonne October 12, 2015 at 10:40 pm

    One of my favorite post from you! Love the outfits and the pear picking detail Jean and Nick. =)

    Nick should start a blog too! He is very well dressed! Does he pick out his own clothes/outfits? 🙂

    What size did you get in the Sorel boots? I've read many reviews where people sized down or up and am so confused.
