For some reason this outfit looks a bit too loose for the re-wear. But it is comfortable and a fun Fall combo so I'll let it slide! I still could have worn this without tights but I wanted the full throwback look since I still had all the pieces.

I had much nicer weather on my second trip to the pumpkin patch this year. I went on a Friday so there weren't as many people as there are on the weekends but there were 2 school buses full of little kids picking out their pumpkins. I got a HUUUUGE pumpkin this year, normally I go for a smaller size but this year I was in the mood for a giant $20 pumpkin. Know what I mean?

I recently went to the pumpkin patch with my brother and his girlfriend. Sadly it was misting the whole time and raining when we left so the photos of my outfit aren't the best. But I'm going to share them anyway because we took the trouble to take them. Luckily I knew I would be taking another tip to Jones Family Farm's in a few days so I wasn't too upset that we just ran in and out.

This bag is the third piece I've gotten on HauteTrader. I used 400 of my HautePoints to add this beautiful bag to my closet for free thanks to a Free Trade code for Fall! You can still use TradeWMegan for a free trade of your own! Don't worry, I'll be wearing the Missoni dress I got soon!

I've never been that into Louis Vuitton accessories, probably because I'm not a huge fan of their logo all over the bags. They just seem overly "look at my logo!" I would have made an exception for a bag like Mal from ReadyTwoWear had, for some reason this one didn't bug me. So when I saw that this plain, albeit beautiful, bag was a LV I was shocked. The color is gorgeous and it's a vintage bag from March 1994 if I read the date code correctly. The logo is still there, but I like how it is embossed so it doesn't stand out too much. It also comes with a cute little pouch that's perfect for your credit cards.

This particular bag, the Epi Leather Sac D'Epaule, is only available through secondhand markets now, but there are still plenty of bags in the Epi Leather Collection. After some research I found the following information on the line:
Epi Leather was introduced in 1985 as the brand's first permanent leather line, and it's been beloved for its durability and vivid color selection ever since. The leather is dyed, printed with Epi's famous three-dimensional wave pattern and then painted with a color-matching top coating, which ensures the colors are especially bright and makes the leather very resistant to water and wear. There's a reason Epi bags are so popular on the resale market: they require very little care to look virtually new for years.

Last Friday I had to go to jury duty. It was also a snowy day and I'm not a huge fan of where the court is so that made it extra annoying. But sometimes it's nice to just sit and read all day. I made some good progress on finishing Return of the King, which I've been reading for far too long, ha ha. I thought it was a good opportunity to wear one of my more professional blazers since I rarely have occasion to wear them anymore.

I looooove this sweater! It's actually about 2 sizes too big but that just makes it more cozy! It's one of my better Net-a-Porter sale buys. Some of the pieces I've gotten over the years don't get that much wear, this one gets tons!

Unfortunately these jeans are on their way out, luckily the new J Brand jeans I got last month are the same color, they're just high waisted! Now I don't have to worry about replacing them once they really go out. They're just getting a bit loose and ratty in certain spots but should still be good for at least a year, ha ha.

The Original:
I wore this a couple weekends ago to go shopping and have brunch at Terrain with Lydia. I had been here to shop before (during Christmas time!) but had never been to the cafe they have. I had some delicious french toast and Lydia had eggs benedict. After that we perused the store and I ended up buying a super cute pumpkin with succulents for my Mom's birthday. I wanted one for myself too but resisted! It was a pretty dreary day so I was dressed for comfort and in shoes that can get wet. I've had these boots for 3 years now (in brown too) and they're still going strong!

This sweater is one of my favorite examples of shopping the boys section. When Target did their big Neiman Marcus collaboration I really wanted this rag & bone sweater, but it was only in the boys and mens departments. Luckily I was able to snap one up in a boys medium. Plus, it's fun to say I fit in little boy clothes. Brings back memories of Elisabeth Hasslebeck on The Look for Less. That was always one of her tips, check the boys department!

The day after Thanksgiving instead of braving the crowded stores my family and I headed to Jones Family Farm, as we do every year to find our perfect Christmas tree! I don't buy a live tree for myself since I'm far too lazy to care for it, so I put up a fake tree in my house. But I'm at my parents often enough that I get to enjoy it.
