Orange You Glad…

…I didn’t make a pumpkin pun? 😉

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Melissa and I went to Boston Hill Farm in North Andover. We had gone apple picking earlier in the day, but I wouldn’t rest until we fit in another fall activity on that beautiful day! As much as I miss being able to sit poolside in the middle of October (#FloridaLife), I always felt like I was missing out on fall in New England. Nothing beats wearing a cute flannel and preppy vest while the leaves crunch beneath your leather boots. Ok, except maybe wearing a bikini while a waiter brings you a strawberry daiquri. But we’re talking reality here.

For our pumpkin patch excursion I wore a faux-suede dress that I snagged at Marshall’s recently – where else?! If we’re being totally honest, I think it was maybe supposed to be a tunic. But hey, short girls gotta do what we gotta do! I paired it with more faux-suede in the form of booties I snagged last year at DSW and a felt hat I purchased at Charlotte Russe this spring. I guarantee that many of you readers would scoff at that store name out of context, but admit it – you love the hat, don’t you? 😉 My parents don’t call me a professional shopper for nothing.

After buying an adorable little family of mini pumpkins (because how could I not) we went to Maggie’s Farm in Middleton for dinner. I had heard great things about the restaurant but wasn’t totally sure what to expected. We ended up LOVING both of our meals (salad, burger, and a shared spinach artichoke dip) as well as our waiter and the ambiance. We treated ourselves to pumpkin beers with the cinnamon sugar rim because, well, FALL.
