{outfit} Always a Wedding Guest

I've been going to a lot of weddings this year. I went to my third last Saturday, another cousin got married! It was a beautiful Fall day and I decided to wear the brown Edun dress I bought at The Outnet a couple years ago. I've worn it twice before, during LuckyFabb 2012 and at the Grand Opening of the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. It definitely deserves to be worn more than that, I don't know why I always pass it by on dressier occasions! Too many options, I suppose.

{outfit} The Statement Loafer

It's getting chilly out there, folks! Lately, while I've been working, my hands have been freezing cold! We haven't turned the heat on in the house yet, trying to hold out. And I also don't want to start using my mini space heater for a few more weeks because once it goes on I will become addicted! This Witchery sweater is definitely helpful on cold days, it's super warm and perfectly oversized!

It's almost been one year since I added these Burberry Prorsum loafers to my wardrobe and I'm still so glad I splurged on them last year.  Is it weird that I remember when I bought certain pieces of clothing? I guess that's a good thing, because it shows I made a good choice in buying something if I make the effort to remember our anniversary. (Yes, I realize I am very strange)

{photo diary} The Pumpkin Patch

I took over 100 pictures at the pumpkin patch this past weekend, so narrowing it down to under 15 is a huge feat! I go a bit camera crazy, so when I print my pictures I have hundreds to print from one event, where normal people would have 50 or so. Whatever, I realize I have a problem, but things could be worse. I could be addicted to something that could kill me.  Enough rambling, enjoy the photos and see the outfit post here!

{outfit} Blustery Day

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year (along with the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas,) so it should come as no surprise to you that one of my favorite traditions is going to the pumpkin patch! My family has been going to the same one since I was a youngin', Jones Family Farms (it is also where we get our Christmas Tree every year.) This year I just went with my sister and her boyfriend, but there's plenty of time to go again, so maybe the whole family will go one weekend.

It was super chilly and windy when we went, but was still a lot of fun! We went early in the morning to avoid the crowds but by the time we left the place was PACKED. It is insanity! I went a little light this year and just bought 2 small gourds and a bundle of Indian corn, only $6 for all of it. I'm sharing my outfit today and will share some general snaps tomorrow!

{outfit} Purple Leopard, Black Leather and Peggy Boots

I'm wearing a few new pieces in this outfit. The first is a purple leopard sweater I picked up at the Jersey Gardens outlet mall two weekends ago, for $19.50! Moving downward we get to this fun bracelet I got during New York Fashion Week which, up until now, I had been afraid to wear in fear of it getting caught on things. FYI: It didn't, but I had to make sure it didn't go into my ketchup pile at dinner.

Finally, we get to my feet and these amazing Phillip Lim boots I bought months ago during the Barney's Warehouse Memorial Day sale. The non-fur parts are a little plasticy looking but I think the calf hair makes up for it! They also make a plain leather version and metallic gold, but I think these are a mix of both - fun and practical.
