Welcome to Day 2 of Lextober. It’s a chilly October morning, I’m sipping on coffee (per usual) and I just turned my heat on for the first time this year. Oh my gosh, I can’t even believe I just said that. It really is getting chilly! For today’s post, I’m sharing my first trip to a pumpkin patch this year. Grab your mugs y’all!
My friend and I went out to Simmon’s Farm, it’s a local pumpkin patch that we’ve gone to for years not too far from the city. We got ourselves some coffee and headed to the farm around 11:00. Everything was COVID friendly — lines were spaced out, hayrides were cut 2/3 capacity and when you were out in the fields everything was open. With the hayride, we got a pumpkin of choice, at any size. We ran through the corn maze, went down the 100ft slide (bringing out the inner child in me), picked some apples, and shopped around the market before heading out to get a late lunch at The Porch.
I’m not exaggerating when I say this was a P E R F E C T fall day. Sunny skies of blue, not too hot, not too chilly… absolute perfection. I love to wear booties if I’m going to a pumpkin patch during the early weeks of fall. During this time of year, the ground isn’t muddy or anything yet so I can get away with a little bit of a heel. I paired my go-to chestnut booties (that desperately need to be replaced) with overalls I found in Target’s clearance section last spring. I mean, y’all, did you really go to a pumpkin patch if you didn’t bring out some overalls? A yellow cropped sweater and then a fall scarf from the dollar section at Target completed this look. I received tons and tons of compliments this day so I guess the overall look was a win!
