For our November Bubbles & Bloggers meet-up, we decided to be extremely basic and made a little field trip out to Butler’s Orchard in Maryland for pumpkin picking and photos ops. I’d never been to Butler’s Orchard before so I was super pumped when Caroline suggested it as our November location, and I’m so happy we actually made it happen! (Huge kudos to my fairy godmother, Dani for organizing and planning everything!)
Although it was super sunny out, it was also insanely windy so I opted for a layered look to keep warm while we were frolicking through the pumpkin patch. I don’t have a preppy style, but I felt insanely preppy with this flannel and sweater combo. To make the look a little bit more “me” I added my favorite ripped jeans and a pair of cut-out booties for some edge. The cheetah print belt was a total last minute accessory that I threw on while running out the door, but I think that it helped tie in the brown accessories.
One of my blogger pals mentioned that she was hesitant to layer because it made her feel bulky – which is exactly how I felt – but aside from a few wrinkles from the flannel’s pocket, I think it looks more streamlined than I felt. I’d recommend layering with a thin button-down and crop sweater to help avoid bulkiness and pair with high-waisted jeans to define your middle. Bonus points for a skinny belt to further define your curves!
After Butler’s we headed to Rocklands Farm for wine tasting and were thrilled to see that there were baby piglets at the farm! They were so stinking cute and if I wasn’t already a vegetarian I think watching them in all of their adorableness would have totally swayed me. I highly recommend going to the farm for their wine – I liked every single wine we tasted and came home with two yummy bottles – Cabernet Franc for the manfriend and a red blend for me.
