Pumpkin Patch Kid

Now that Halloween is only one week away, I thought it was only appropriate to visit the local pumpkin patch and take some shots in the spirit of this marvellous holiday.

Turns out, Emma and I were the only adults without kids there. We were also the only ones doing a photo shoot that didn’t involve a toddler and a pumpkin. Awkward…but let’s be honest, we’re pretty much the only ones doing a photo shoot anywhere we go.

For this adventure, I decide to wear this knit dress because it's super cozy and warm. I didn’t want to expose my bear legs to the cold since it's getting a little chilly so I decided to pull out some maroon tights (a spin on this season’s ox-blood “it” colour) from my mom’s closet. 

While rummaging through her stuff I actually I found two pairs of tights that I liked - the maroon pair pictured and a bright cobalt blue. I found out that she actually wore them to work in the 80’s, isn’t that crazy?? And even crazier, no run in the tights!

After our shoot the pumpkin festivities continued at home as I ate pumpkin seeds while carving my pumpkin and singing pumpkin songs...okay that last part didn't really happen. I don't know any pumpkin songs and I'm pretty sure there are none in actual existence.

But, I did end up carving Jack from “A Nightmare before Christmas”. It happens to be one of my favourite Halloween movies. Truth be told? I’ve got some mad pumpkin carving skills (bragging!). I only wish I had bought a couple more to showcase my very useful talent… 

Thanks for following and happy shopping!
