Fall or Winter?

Somehow we're already past jacket season in Chicago and are already on to coats.  I'm not ready for such cold weather yet (it's been in the 40's all week!), but I have been excited to get the chance to wear my new red peacoat.

Coat - Old Navy / Scarf - JCrew Factory / Denim - Gap / Boots - Bandolino / Bag - F21 (really old, similar)

We took these pictures over the weekend at Goebbert's Pumpkin Patch, which is about 45 minutes northwest of Chicago.  I thought we were just heading out for some good old fashioned pumpkin picking and apple cider donut eating, but I was mistaken.  Goebbert's not only has pumpkins, but also a corn maze, pumpkin cannon, some kind of robot that eats pumpkins, a petting zoo (complete with the giraffe), camel rides, a haunted house, a magician, and more.  I guess that's why they were charging admission.  It was a fun but cold Saturday!

  3. Cute coat - what a fun place to go for a Saturday!

  4. Um that sounds like the coolest place ever!! Love your coat =)

  5. I love the color of your red coat! I just posted a few days ago about needing fun colored coats! And its freezing here already too. Not excited at all!

  6. What a cool pumpkin patch! And your coat... I LOVE IT! Such a fun color amidst all the neutrals people will be wearing!

  7. I live in Wisconsin, and fall seems to have left so quickly!! I've started wearing coats, huddling next to fires, and yesterday it snowed. Cute coat and scarf!

  8. I agree it sucks that Chicago has delved into cold temps so quickly, but at least your coat is adorable! I've never been to Goebbert's, but my school just went on a fieldtrip to a "pumpkin" farm that was more like a carnival. Guess they've gotta step up their game if they want to draw the big crowds...


  9. love the coat.. and i agree where did "fall" go where you can go through the days with a few layers versus whipping out your winter coat!
