What Wives Wear Link Up #25 - My Pumpkin Picking Outfit

Welcome to the
What Wives Wear Link Up!
Week 25

Today I am going to share my pumpkin picking outfit with y'all. But, just to forewarn you... these pictures were not taken at the pumpkin patch. We had church in the morning and while the kids were in Sunday school, Brian and I went to the park near the church and he took some photos of me. I was really glad we did this, because the pumpkin patch was PACKED and it would have been impossible to keep an eye on the kids and do outfit pics... plus, the sun was really intense by the time we got there... in other words, NOT good lighting for photos!


This is a really small park, but it has a lot of trees and a little bridge... perfect for a little photo shoot, I'd say! I really love the light peaking in from the trees in this photo.


The weather was cooler last Sunday and I wanted to wear something that I could get away with for church AND pumpkin picking. I also wanted to be comfortable and I didn't want to ruin a nice pair of shoes in the dirt at the pumpkin patch. I wore this oversized sweater that is a cream color with some black leggings. I paired it with a solid orange scarf and some brown riding boots. When it got hotter at the pumpkin patch, I tossed my scarf in the car with the pumpkins. It was a cool day, but the sun was just beating down, which made it seem warmer.


Whenever I wear leggings, they have to be a little thick and I have to wear something with them that is long enough that my rump is covered! I like to think of leggings sort of as if they are tights... but, a lot thicker and warmer!


When I was having Brian take my photo on this bridge, I was thinking about ALL the different bridges we saw when we were in Central Park in NYC last summer. This park only had one little bridge and it was just perfect for this shot.


I have three Essie colors that I am loving this fall... the color I have on is 'fierce, no fear', but I am also loving 'haute in the heat' and 'skirting the issue'. What are your favorite Essie colors this fall? I wore a couple of my bracelets from Charming Charlie and I have on the initial ring handed down to me from my great aunt Carrie.


This infinity scarf is the only scarf I have in a solid color, but I purchased it just for these fall months. I pull this scarf out a lot around Thanksgiving, it is just such a perfect orange for festivities that go around that holiday.


I purchased these riding boots from the Gap Outlet on my day date with Brian. I love that these boots don't have a heel and I can wear them easily for errands or when I am running the kids around. I have another brown pair, but they have a wedge on them, so I reserve them for dress up. These boots don't have a zipper on them, so I do have a bit of a hard time getting them on and off. Does anyone have the same problems with their boots that are zipper-less? I still love them and they fit comfortable once they are on.

This sweater is perfect to wear during transitional weather like we are having. As you can see in this close up shot, it is breathable and I wore a neutral colored tank top under it for when we visited the pumpkin patch. You can make this sweater warmer by adding a turtle neck under it in the winter.


Here are the deets on this outfit:
Infinity Scarf - Shade

Leggings - Gap
Riding Boots - Gap Outlet

Nail Color - Essie (fierce, no fear)
