A Day at the Sunflower Farm

Once I get something in my head, I have to do it. And picking sunflowers at Happy Day Farm in Manalapan was no different. I saw they created an event on their Facebook page to pick sunflowers and I knew at that moment that I had to go. I went recently with one of my besties Jazznette, her two beautiful daughters Ellona and Ellyana and her mother-in-law Helen. It was a hot day in New Jersey (over 80 degrees), but we didn’t let the hot weather stop us from having a great time.

For those of you that haven’t visited this farm yet, I highly recommend it. Not only is it beautiful, but there’s also so many fun activities for kids AND they have a whole separate side of the farm for fall activities, like apple and pumpkin picking. All of the staff are also super nice and willing to help in any way they can.

The sunflower fields are breathtaking and they just stretch across the Happy Day Farm property. It was really nice to see everyone together whether it was a group of friends or families walking through the sunflower fields, enjoying the day and making memories.

I wanted to be cool and comfortable in my outfit of the day, but I also wanted to bring in the yellow color of the beautiful sunflowers, so I chose this great yellow front tie top from Amazon Fashion. What I love about this top, besides the color and that it’s super comfortable, is that it’s embroidered with pearls all over the front of it, which gives it great detail. I paired it with these yellow, orange and red statement earrings from Versona (I’ve linked similar ones here) and these leopard print shorts from Express. I think you all know by now that I love to wear leopard any chance I get. Speaking of leopard, I can’t wait to share with all of you the great fall pieces I recently purchased for the fall. Stay tuned!

One of my favorite pictures of the day was a photo that Jazznette took of me and her daughter Ellona sitting on one of the tractors. It’s the cutest picture. She’s holding my hand and smiling. I’m going to cherish this photo and this memory forever.

What is your favorite photo you’ve taken? I would love to see it in the comments below and hear the story behind it.
