What To Wear To a Pumpkin Patch Outfit 2

Sweater- Old Navy (similar), Plaid Shirt- Tommy Hilfiger (similar), 
Jeans- (similar), Boots-(similar)

I played in Sarah's closet and we both agreed that this sweater needed to make it's debut at the Pumpkin Patch. Mustard yellow just goes so well with orange pumpkins! 

Brown knee high boots, a light wash jean with a oversized sweater 
is a perfect outfit for the pumpkin patch!

See the first outfit I listed for going to the pumpkin patch, here
There will be one more outfit coming to give ideas of 
something else you could wear for your Fall activities.

These separate Ralph Lauren ruffled shirt and skirt

I love the tartan fabric with the ruffles.
A hint of menswear mixed with my very girly style.
 The perfect look.

What to Wear To A Pumpkin Patch Outfit 1

Poncho- TJ Maxx (similar, similar), Pants- Old Navy, Rain Boots- Ralph Lauren

I have never been to a pumpkin patch before. 
I have no idea why I haven't been, but it was such a blast! 
Since I had never been to one, I didn't know what to wear. 
I decided on wearing a poncho, skinny jeans, and my plaid rain boots. 
It was PERFECT! Here are some ideas of what you can wear.

What to Wear to the Pumpkin Patch:

1. Dress like you are not afraid to get dirty!
Pumpkins grow in dirt, so naturally the pumpkins are going to be covered with dirt so wear an outfit you aren't afraid of getting dirty. 

2. Wear comfortable shoes
Rain boots were great because at a real pumpkin patch you are going down the rows of pumpkin plants and it can again be muddy and dirty. When I got home I just washed my rain boots with water and "Viola!" they were clean. You do a lot of walking so make sure your shoes are bearable.

3. Layers
Fall is all about layers but especially at a pumpkin patch, once you get your pumpkin and carry it around with you (unless you get a cool wagon to wheel it around) you are going to get hot. I was dripping sweat by the time I got to the car because of how heavy my pumpkins were.

Hope this helps! :) What would you wear to go pick pumpkins?

I have 2 more outfits to show you, of What to Wear to a Pumpkin Patch coming next week.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect black booties.

My list of must haves for the perfect bootie were:
  • They had to be cute :)
  • Comfortable for wearing more than 12 hours a day
  • Heels to add height to my 5'4 self
  • Hits at a good/comfortable point on my ankle
  • Affordable
I went into Payless, haven't been in there for years and found these amazing boots. Where have you found the perfect booties for this fall season?

Everything's Coming Up Roses!

 Rose Sweater- JCP (similar), Skirt- H&M (similar), 
Metallic Flats- Old Navy (similar)

This rose on my shirt inspired my inner Gypsy Rose Lee love lately.
I was in the musical Gypsy in High School...still don't know how we got away with doing it. Haha. Anyways, everyday in my car to and from work I pick a musical to sing and Gypsy has been on repeat. I LOVE the music in that musical. Don't worry when I was a Freshman, I played Tessie Tura the stripper in that play. Still makes me laugh to this day. Don't worry I was a classy stripper that wore pointe shoes and a cute sequin dress, nothing sketchy. I am realizing how old I am and how long ago High School was. When did I grow up? I also miss performing, so sorry for my inner theater nerd post.

Fall Colors

Shoes- Poetic Licence, Gingham Shirt- J.Crew,
Skirt- Forever 21 (similar), Tights- Forever 21 (similar), 
Scarf- Forever 21 (similar)

I was in the mood to just throw lots of colors on.
I feel like this outfit works, because it is all in the same pallet of colors.
These new Poetic Licence shoes were my inspiration for the outfit.
I love Poetic Licence shoes because they play 
with colors and patterns like no other shoe does!

I have a funny teaching story today.
A little girl came up to me yesterday and told me 
she was going to name her daughter Wensel
(That's my last name for those of you that didn't know).
I said, no way! Do you think she will like that name?
She said, "OF COURSE, because you are beautiful so she will be too!"
I feel bad for her future daughter...

A little student of mine was struggling with
her writing and a little girl near her says,
"If you make it wrong, just make it perfect!"
