October Outings

This blog post is dedicated to my papa, who passed away on Sunday, October 16th and who helped teach me that family is everything.

Growing up, my dad and I would spend a fall day going on the roller coasters and walking through the haunted houses at Six Flags Great America’s Fright Fest. Afterward, we’d go to Didier Farms in Lincolnshire, IL to pick pumpkins, eat delicious buttered corn on the cob,  sip cider, and walk through the cornfield maze. Then, we’d go home to carve our pumpkins and bake pumpkin seeds! What a perfect day it always was! Since fall activities hold a special place in my heart, I thought I’d create an outfit perfect for a pumpkin picking, corn on the cob eating, maze wondering outing!

To channel my inner farmer, the foundation of my outfit are overalls by Madewell. To keep my arms warm during these cooler autumn months, I’m wearing a Left of Center long sleeved shirt from Anthropologie – here’s a similar style. Next, I’m wearing an olive green vest by Sanctuary – find similar styles ON SALE here and here. For added warmth, I’m wearing this tie-dyed scarf by Heshima Kenya. The scarf is sold out, but the company has so many other gorgeous scarfs to purchase! To bring together the olive green vest and scarf, I’m wearing booties by TOMS – similar style here.

With a lot of heart,
