• Big Apple Shopping Picks For Fall

    Apple-themed fun with fall shopping.

    By Mia Weber

    With its permanent status as an iconic symbol of fall, the apple is the perfect inspiration for autumnal fashion, snacking, and back-to-school fun. Check out these cheeky finds to mix the ultimate fall fruit into your daily life this season.

    For the Red Delicious reader: Kick-start your little one’s fall reading routine with a heartwarming tale of a shiny red apple who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a worm. Author and illustrator Edward Hemingway’s Bad Apple is sure to captivate with its cheery images and poignant themes, which touch upon bullying and the importance of friendship and accepting differences.

    $16.99, amazon.com

    For the fashionista: With the change in the weather comes changes in fashion trends–but sassy and sweet apple designs will never go out of style. We’re loving this felt hairclip from New York’s own Pink Olive. Perfect to accent any school outfit, or to accessorize for weekend fun, the little clip is sure to delight both fruit and fashion lovers alike!

    For the sweet tooth: While apple pie may get the spotlight when it comes to autumnal treats, there are plenty of other apple-inspired snacks to satisfy your need for sweets–or perfect party favors. This year, fall for Orchard Delight Brownies and Blondies (pictured) from Amy’s Apples. These scrumptious cuties pack a mouthful of flavor into a diminutive themed pop.

    $3.75/piece, amysapples.com

    For the bouncing baby: Keep the tiniest tots snug this season with a darling crochet Apple Beanie from Tiny Tops. These charming caps–which come in three colors–are sure to keep young noggins toasty. Plus, you can always pull out as a quick-and-easy Halloween accessory!
