Pro tip: bring a brush everywhere you go. The wind was not a friend to my hair as you can see.
“I’m so glad I live in
a world where there are Octobers.” – Anne of Green Gables
Same Anne, Same. Unfortunately, in Alabama it takes a little longer than normal for cooler temps to come. I have found kimonos are the perfect transitional layering piece. They are light, yet keep you from being chilly when that southern wind picks up. (I promise I know how to style my hair. Thanks wind. *eye roll*)
This past Saturday, we decided to take my niece and nephew to a pumpkin patch since that’s always a must do the first of October. This kimono was the perfect piece to keep cool and be able to run and chase kids around. I definitely over wear this one. I love the colors. It’s a good change from the typical olive and dark colors I usually choose for fall andddddd it was under $40- score! I have linked several of my favorites this fall below. I like to pair it with a tank like the hi-low one I have on here, so that if it does get too hot I can still look trendy without the kimono.
If you’re in the Alabama/Mississippi area, we went to a new place this year called Country Pumpkins in Caledonia, MS. Go check them out! They had tons of activities for the kiddos parents, such as: barrel train ride, jump in cotton, slides, tire swings, hay rides, face painting, ring toss, bean bag toss, etc. I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks a lot of places severely over price their pumpkins. At Country Pumpkins, most all of their pumpkins were $2-$6. Great deals! The only downside is the pumpkins are already picked, I think it’s fun to get them straight from the patch at other places.
Let me know if you go or other patches nearby I should try! What is your favorite light layering piece?
I mentioned my obsession with my LV, but lets be honest it’s not always practical. Tory Burch bags may be my second current favorite and these totes were perfect for the pumpkin patch. Seriously crushing on her new suede bags for fall though. Head over to her site and you’ll see what I mean.
