This weekend, not only was I able to get brunch with two of my dearest friends after 8 months apart, but we also got to go pumpkin picking for the first time ever at a local farm. I love this time of year because the colder temperatures let me wear some of my favorite staples like my faux leather jackets but also because I get to eat pumpkin-flavored food. Yes, I know that is totally cliché but whatever, I love pumpkin.
Funny enough, this is only the second time I’ve touched a live pumpkin in my life (hence my face in the below pic). I guess that’s something that comes with being born and raised city-girl, hahaha.
After making our pumpkin selections, we also got a chance to tour the rest of the grounds of the farm, seeing alpaca, cows, goats, sheep and, of course, the crops and fresh flowers available for purchase. Unfortunately, we got to the farm too late to take advantage of the hayrides and the corn maze so we’re already making plans to go back before the end of the season to enjoy those too. I’m already looking forward to that day.
As for my outfit, I kept things simple given the occasion called for a lot of walking. I paired this strappy babydoll tunic with skinny jeans and my favorite crop faux leather jacket. I had plans to wear my new faux-suede over the knee boots I recently bought from Torrid but since it had been raining most of last week, I figured it would be safer to go with my combat boots. This ended up being a good decision as most of the pumpkin patch was very muddy. The hat and suede fringe handbag tied the look together for a boho-with-edge kind of style I liked more than I thought I would.
