Happy Thursday friends! Today is my Friday at work and I’m also taking a half a day off to get a few things done this afternoon, so I’m happy to catch up and get some things done.
Last weekend, Jordan and I took a little day trip to the pumpkin patch to cross off one of the things on my fall bucket list this year. I wanted to take pictures at the pumpkin patch and pick out a pumpkin to carve when we got back home. (So I guess that’s really two things off my fall bucket list, really!) We had such a fun time and the weather was actually perfect for the entire day!
We visited the Pumpkin Patch at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church since it wasn’t far from our apartment and I had passed it a few times before so I knew there were a ton of pumpkins out that we could choose from. They had a great system for checking people out and for pricing the pumpkins as well so it was all super easy and helped make the experience that much more enjoyable.
We got there around 1pm (I would recommend getting there earlier if you’re planning to take pictures since the sun was DIRECTLY on us at this point and it made it a little more difficult to get the perfect shot!) and set up the tripod so we could take some pictures together. I always use this tripod either when I’m taking pictures by myself for the blog or when Jordan and I are taking pictures together and there is no one there to snap them for us. It’s lightweight but not flimsy at all, plus it’s only $23, so it’s a great deal! I also use this Bluetooth remote clicker to take the pictures so I’m not having to try to run back and forth between each picture to reset the auto-timer. It connects with your phone and is small and easy to conceal, so you can click the remote and take pictures without having to click the button on your actual phone.
My Outfit Deets
I actually bought this skirt from Express this past week when I was in San Antonio for work. They were on sale for only $20, so it was a super good deal and I loved the look and feel of it. It’s high-quality and I love that you can style it so many different ways for the fall season!
It’s sold out online in this tan color I’m wearing, but it’s fully stocked in black and like I said, it really is great quality. I bought a size 6 (my normal size in bottoms) but I actually think I could have bought a 4 and been fine. It worked great since I had a sweater tucked into it, but if I were planning to wear it with a fitted top, I would definitely need to pin it. So keep that in mind when shopping! I would suggest sizing down one, especially if you’re between sizes.
I also plan to style this skirt with booties, a tank top/bodysuit and a jacket as well once it gets a little cooler! Like I said, I think you can style this skirt a lot of different ways so it really was a win-win getting it!
Thanks for reading friends and I hope you all get to go out to a pumpkin patch with your love, with your friends, or even by yourself to get cute pics, because FALL. IS. HERE. and I am all for it! Xx.
