Does it get any more #basic than a girl at the pumpkin patch? I’m not sure nor do I care. It’s a place I’ve always belonged. I have a vivid memory of taking a field trip to a farm as a little girl and walking through the pumpkin patch and actually choosing a pumpkin to pick from a vine. That’s how it is in the midwest– you pick it from where it was grown. I look back at that memory and forever cherish my childhood adventures. Ah, fall in the midwest. It doesn’t get any better. I miss the corn mazes, apple picking, hay rides, and vibrant swale of color. I miss the frost covered fields in the early morning and raking up the leaves in the afternoon. But I’ll take what I can get, and a solo trip to the local ‘patch’ is just the escape this mama needed.
As it gets cooler (and YES- it’s getting cooler!), I love pulling out my sweaters and layers. Honestly, my go-to outfit that I feel most myself in is a pair of jeans, sweater, and chunky scarf. It’s my happy place. Sweater weather will always be my favorite.
What I love about this cozy sweater is its cold shoulder ruffle detail and the fact that it comes in my favorite color for fall: burgundy! Can’t get enough of burgundy or those deep rich colors this time of year. I’m also wearing my favorite black distressed skinnies from Topshop that are 40% and super budget friendly. They run small so make sure to order a size up. I wear them with so many outfits! Definitely a staple piece I recommend ;)
Also, can you believe Halloween is next week? Where has the time gone?! Are any of you dressing up for it? I’m usually pumped about picking a fun costume but this year, all I can think about is will I sleep tonight? So a costume is kind of a the bottom of my priority list right now. We’ll see if I have a sudden inspiration last minute.
Ps: for any of you Stranger Things fans, it returns this week to Netflix! I’m so excited for Season 2!
Well that’s all for me today. I’ve got one rapidly growing baby I’ve got to tend to! I hope to snap some pictures of him this weekend at the patch in the pumpkin onesie he just recently grew into! Stay tuned ;)
