What I Wore Pumpkin Picking

The Overview

I didn’t really want to go to the Pumpkin Patch last Sunday, but it’s October and I’m a fashion blogger so that’s the law.

Obviously, I’m kidding. (Anyone recognize that twist on a Seinfeld joke?) Anyway. My statement is partially true: Pax wanted to go to the pumpkin patch. He’s been begging for weeks, in fact, so I did a little research trying to find a chill pumpkin patch. I didn’t want bouncy houses or long lines for wagons or any of it. I just wanted some outdoor time, a few pumpkins, and apple cider doughnuts. And since I am (roughly) a fashion blogger, I decided to go all extra and wear those fleece coats that are bordering on faux-fur territory. I think that’s the key with these things: don’t over-think it. Wear ’em like a The North Face fleece or something.

Outfit Details

jacket: My Vince hoodie is sold out, but this Mango one is really similar, as is this French Connection one.

sweatshirt: Madewell Turtleneck Sweatshirt (I’m wearing an XXS – I like the shrunken fit)

layering turtleneck: Vince Pima Cotton Turtleneck – this is the BEST layering turtleneck. I’ll be getting another color.  Of course, black is sold out, so also try this one.

jeans: AG Skinny Distressed Farrah Jeans (on crazy sale)

bootsDanner hiking boots (My favs – I’ve worn these hiking everywhere, and they still look good enough to function as real – waterproof – boots.) If these are too pricy, Sorel makes a similar pair (just swap out the laces for red ones).

backpack: Makr Farm Rucksack (if you remember when I bought this…gold star. You really are a longtime reader.)

on Pax (little brother): Faux-leather jacket | super soft jeans | sneakers

    So cute and pumpkin patch-y! Also, I don’t know if I’ve ever coveted anyone else’s hair the way I do Raines’. That boy is blessed!!!

  2. Would you wear the Danner boots in Iceland in March? I’m headed there and considering these but wondering about warmth…
