The pumpkin Patch

LOCATION: Rock Ledge Ranch

OUTFIT DETAILS:Β Toms BootiesΒ || ONA Capri Bag || Anthropologie Dress (similar, similar, similar)

Well we did it. We checked off one of my October goals. Every October we HAVE to go pick out a pumpkin. and I prefer it to be at some adorable local farm over adding one to my click-list order at the grocery store. Rock Ledge Ranch has a harvest day every year so I made sure to put it in our calendar months ago. The weather here in Colorado was dipping into the beautiful fall temps but this weekend it wanted to be 75 degrees! (Not to mention yesterday decided to snow…)

It was such a fun event and packed with so many people. We made our way to the pumpkin patch because they were going quick and like I mentioned, I had to leave with a pumpkin! We watched the blacksmith work and watched little kids try to wash & hang clothes like they had to in the olden days. It was fun to be observers and not have to really wait in any of the lines! haha.

You can see the pictures we took in 2015 picking out our pumpkin in the same place!! ( I like local and I like tradition!) haha. Last year we missed it because we were in Disneyland πŸ˜‰ good thing we are going a week later this year!

Due to the weather, I had to find a cute fall picking pumpkin outfit that would be appropriate to the heat. I love this light dress from anthro and my fav pair of boots – it was a good choice! But for full disclosure, I totally changed into a t-shirt, shorts, and chacos the rest of the day while we were working on home projects! haha!

Do you have any fun fall / October traditions? Any pumpkin patches you always go to?

    Okay, that’s it. I’m going to start carrying my camera EVERYWHERE I go! I always mean to, but it never really happens. Great shots – looks like you had a blast! I so love Autumn.

  • Ahh, fall is here and I couldn’t be happier!! Love how your camera ready everywhere you go πŸ™‚ True lifestyle blogger habits, haha.

    • haha thanks!! I do bring it all the time. Not just for the blog but for life – I have so many fun family & friend moments documented too!

  • Holy cow, that is one PACKED pumpkin patch! I didn’t really know of any “events” like that here–we just choose a u-pick farm and go during their scheduled hours, and it’s usually pretty quiet! There would be fun things about it being a big event, though. Glad you found the perfect one!

    • hahaha yes! We don’t have tons around here so everyone goes to the same place. Plus this one is only one day!

    How are you so dang cute?! I LOVE THAT OUTFIT!
    Also, I love this pumpkin patch! It looks like such a great gathering place.

  • Those boots are adorable! We will be making our trip to the pumpkin patch when it hopefully gets a little cooler. It’s still in the 80s here in SC!
