Tis the season for everything pumpkin. Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin-flavored Oreos, and even pumpkin-scented candles. As this maybe be a shock to the millions of pumpkin lovers out there but I’m not really a pumpkin fan. My lack of adoration for pumpkins didn’t stop me from celebrating this one fall tradition: Pumpkin Picking!!! As a native south Floridian pumpkin picking isn’t as popular of a fall activity like drinking under your mango tree with your cousins. So once I made my move to the great north this was one of the activities I wanted to get off my bucket list.
What To Wear Pumpkin Picking
Since I’m no pro at this pumpkin picking life it took me forever to find something to wear. The temperatures in New York were spiraling down very quickly so I had to bundle up. So I chose to wear this old burgundy cardigan sweater I’ve owned since I was a child. This cardigan from H&M is very similar and looks equally as cozy. I wanted to wear a dress but women wearing men’s clothing is ten times cuter. Deciding to wear a men’s button-down shirt like this one from American Eagle was a good choice. I threw on these burgundy tights from Old Navy, cognac-colored booties, and a leather vest to toughen up the look. Overall, I created an ensemble that goes beautifully with the pumpkin patch scenery in Long Island but edgy enough for Manhattan’s city streets.
