Pumpkin Patch Chic

Friday, October 13, 2017

A question that's been on my mind lately... Is it really even October if you haven't been to a pumpkin patch yet? I think we all know the answer to that one. So when my niece, Lola, asked me to go to the patch with her yesterday (that's what the cool kids call it) I said absolutely!

We drank cider, played in a corn pit (because Nebraska) and rode the pumpkin patch train until I was politely told I was "too big and could I please get out so a child could have a turn," ....  which hurt my heart, but I suppose it made sense.

And naturally I drug my photographer along too (my mom) to grab some of those nice fall bloggy pics I've been after. Given that I'm in a very pumpkin loving mood right now, I'm going to go all in with a fall fashion post today and talk about my favorite finds from Nordstrom lately.

First things first, Nordstrom is killing it with their scarves this year. I got this twill stripe scarf for only $22 found here.

Other favs include these four, all less than $30, and all found by clicking here. 

Now to talk about denim...

I needed a new pair of jeans because I accidentally stuck my foot through the knee hole of my others (does anyone else ALWAYS do this?) and completely ruined them. I'm kind of particular about my jeans because I can't stand when they get super stretched out after one wear. Like, I get irrationally mad about this type of thing.

I also prefer them to be high waisted, I like a shorter crop, and if they give my backside a little lift I won't complain. I stumbled upon these distressed ankle jeans by Topshop for $80 and have been pleasantly surprised.

I've worn them several days in a row now (and one was a travel day and we all know how those go) and they still haven't stretched out! So these have been a total win in my book.

If you want a pair that is a little less distressed, I suggest these, which are also the same fit. And for a pair with no holes (I swear I wear hole-less jeans sometimes) click here, they're the same fit and only $70.

Favorite Jeans:

Now for some sweater talk. This chunky knit has a really fun scallop trip bottom which I happen to love. It's hard to see in this pic, so click here to see a much better photo.

Other favorites include this cable knit and this ruffle sweater.

And I'm pretty sure I've talked about this funnel neck sweatshirt no less than 100 times. It's also a great top to wear when meeting your new niece for the first time. Vivienne approved.

As I'm sure you can tell, Nordstrom is one of my favorite retailers. I always find what I'm looking for and love that they have a wide range of prices, incredible customer service, and free shipping both ways!

Huge thanks to Nordstrom, my absolute go-to for online and in-store shopping, for sponsoring this post!

    I wish we had pumpkin patches in Hong Kong. They sound so fun. And SO essential for fall.
