Pumpkin-everything month is in full effect like woah. I went into Trader Joe’s the other day and they had an entire aisle…an entire aisle… dedicated to pumpkin flavored products. Including pumpkin-spice pumpkin seeds. Aren’t pumpkin seeds, by definition, pumpkin-spiced? I was curious so ended up buying them… and I hate to admit that were delicious, but they were.
It all feels a little over the top, doesn’t it? That being said, a good pumpkin display really gets me.
There’s a nursery in Greenwich that always has the most beautiful seasonal displays. I was on the hunt for a white pumpkin for our stoop so stopped by to pick one up and snap these shots. It was freezing the morning that we went, so I threw on the coziest plaid poncho. If I could wear a blanket outside on chilly days without looking insane, I totally would. This is just as good… plus it has a hood! The navy ended up matching my turtleneck (which is great for layering btw) perfectly.
In other news, my mom left today after two nights and three days at my house. It was so nice to spend some time alone with her, but I did take a little step back which is why there was no post yesterday! We were lucky to have two beautiful sunny days to explore and go for walks, but they were pretty cold so this poncho was worn (by both of us!) more than once.
Tomorrow I’m heading to Napa with some girlfriends for a long weekend, so today is going to be a scramble to fit in a ton of work, packing, and organizing the house for when I’m gone. My friends and I have been planning this trip for almost a year, so when we found out there is rain in the forecast, we were all a little bummed, but we’re going to make the best of it and have an incredible time catching up, getting some mud baths (so excited!), and drinking wine (obviously).
Be sure to follow my Napa adventures on Instagram and Snapchat! I also have a post coming up, that I’ve been working on for a while, about how I plan my meals for the week so check back tomorrow for that.
