Pumpkin Patch-ing

I love the month of October and all of the fall activities it involves. Living in Texas, we usually don’t start feeling the fall temps until November but yesterday the low was 55*…. I think everyone was outside!!! Last week we went to the Texas State Fair which is a fall tradition for our family. It is one of the best days of the year for me!

Pumpkin patch-king is also a tradition that I always have to do with Ridge. I always let him pick out most of them but his favorite is picking out the “ugly” ones 🙂 Pumpkins just give me life and I never want fall to leave. I had so many people ask me for outfit details when I posted our fun trip on Instagram. This outfit would be perfect for any fun tradition for fall.















 Mommy: Plaid Top / Vest / Jeans / Shoes / Hat , Ridge: Plaid Shirt / Striped Tee / Jeans / Beanie


For the record, dressing a five year old in fall clothes is NOT easy! There might have been a bribe to get him to even put on jeans. The kid lives in athletic clothes 24/7 so it was a miracle getting him in these layers. But I LOVE dressing him when I can 🙂 He actually picked out his beanie himself!! As far as my outfit, this plaid top is going to be a closet staple for fall. The color and print will go with everything! And if there is one bargain piece you need right now, it’s this serpa vest that I couldn’t pass up! The price is unbeatable! I had to top off the look with this awesome hat that will go with any fall outfit!



What are some fall traditions you have?

    Pumpkin patches are my favorite!! Except for the fact that it will be in the 90’s here all week..makes me so sad! I love when it feels like fall, not summer when we’re at the patch! LOL. These pics are adorable!!



  • Oh man my son is the same way! He refuses to wear long sleeved shirts or jackets, despite the fact it’s been cold! I’m like kid, momma knows what she’s doing lol. Your pumpkin picking outfit is just darling, I love the vest and hat. I’m also with your son on ugly pumpkins, the uglier the better!
