Often in the midst of our crazy schedules, we forget how gorgeous it is outside during the fall. So, we put a halt to all of our school work this weekend and traveled a hour or so away to create a little adventure of our own.
THE BEAUTY OF ADVENTURES
Location: The Holden Arboretum, Kirtland, Ohio, October 18th 2016
Although the leaves are taking FOREVER to change here (I am not complaining- that means the weather is not cold enough, wahoo!), we decided we wanted to adventure out to find the best spot to see the foliage.
As we wander and pick our weekend adventures, we always go out on a lim. Often, we have not been to the location before and sometimes we just found it on google, but we usually trust our online research pretty well.
A trick to finding beautiful locations near you is to go on instagram and type in #”your state”nationalparks. So we typed in #ohionationalparks, #ohioexplored, #ohiofallfoliage and #ohioisbeautiful and came across the Holden Arboretum which did not disappoint at ALL!
The Arboretum offered a Canopy Walk and an Emerging Tower to really get up in the trees- talk about adventure! The steps to get up to the locations were a work out!
I am all about athletic/outdoor gear- I don’t know if it is the sports side of me or the comfort of them, but those two together make me love all the pieces I see. Athleisure is definitely my go-to style for class, I must admit.
When I found this Thermal Jacket I was in awe of the material. It is thick, yet easy to throw on for a breezy day without sweating. I also love the maroon, black and green. The cut is flattering and long (which I love)! Plus, these Leggings are SO fun- the green is AMAZING! They let you step away from the classic all black look without being overbearing.
I am an big overpacked (guilty), so I love throwing all of my gear (camera, lens, extra layers, food, sunglasses, water, umbrella, etc) in a bag on our adventures so we are prepared for whatever comes our way that day whether it be hunger or rain!
I think adventures are always a little more fun when you get new pieces to wear on your big day. So, venture out and find an athletic (or athleisure) look that works for you and pick your next adventure! If you all find beautiful locations in your home to appreciate and soak up the fall, I would love for you to share them! I am always looking for new places to go and things to see.
