It’s official! I’ve finally gone to my first Pumpkin Patch. Yes, 33 years old and I had yet to go pumpkin picking. I blame 18 years of that on growing up in Hawaii, but the last 15 years in Oregon…. I’m not too sure what my excuse is!
The experience was made even more exciting as the pumpkin patch was actually in the backyard of a house owned by my friends’ parents! Now, how cool is that?! Plant, water and wake up in October to your very own pumpkins. These aren’t your run of the mill pumpkins either. They are “Cinderella” pumpkins and as I learned, are the top of the line breed of pumpkins and if sold, would sell for a hefty amount in stores and farms.
My friend and her family have a “Pumpkin Fest” every year, which is basically a fun excuse for their family and neighbors to come together, eat doughnuts, drink coffee and select pumpkins until their Fall desires are met!
The fashionista in me, of course, focused first on my attire. Whenever I think Fall pictures in a field, I think red flannel and Hunter Boots. Luckily, I own both. I threw together this look fairly quickly, paired with my favorite skinny jeans, quilted vest and Columbia jacket for warmth. Complete the look with a top knot and you’re ready to pick!
You can shop my look and it’s similar pieces below.
