Hey y’all! I know it’s been a little over a week now since we visited the pumpkin patch/ apple orchard, but with 3 papers and a presentation due this week I guess you could say this week has been a little hectic for me. But the weekend is here now, so let the fun (or relaxation) begin. By the time the weekend rolls around I am usually exhausted from the crazy week, from studying for tests, going to class, and working out I hardly ever get to have any time to binge watch Netflix, which I love dearly (if you haven’t checked out Ghost Whisperer, do it! It’s one of my favorites and is perfect for this time of year. It’s not creepy at all.. well maybe creepy, but not scary!) Any who I had been promising my friend Ariel, (haha yeah we have the same name, weird right??) that we’d go to a pumpkin patch! She is relatively new to Iowa City and has never been to one in our area. I was all for this especially since she volunteered to help me on my blog, and she’s an absolute ball of fun! Side note: she recently got a job at Sephora in Coralridge Mall so go check her out! We decided to go visit Wilson’s Apple Orchard right outside of Iowa City. Yeah I know it’s pretty basic since nearly every girl goes there every year, but we had an absolute blast and got some really cute pictures- even though by the end both our phones died and we had to ask a random girl to take a picture on her phone and send it to me..haha embarrassing, oh well! It was such a fun afternoon, and if you haven’t been to Wilson’s Apple Orchard you definitely need to, their apple cider slushies are the bomb. Overall, it was a fun afternoon that was filled with pumpkins, slushies, and laughs! I’ve linked and commented below where I got my outfit for the afternoon from. Let comment with any thoughts, questions, and let me know what you think!

p.s.- one of the stores I’ve listed is one of my favorites and will be featured in a blog post coming soon, so be on the lookout!

Sweater. 

Sweater I am wearing came from one of my favorite boutiques located on the square in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa called Lillian Grace Boutique. It is actually very affordable and I always manage to find something I want when I go in there. I will have a blog post soon featuring the store, so be sure to check it out!

Jeans. 

The jeans I am wearing came from American Eagle  this year! They are currently on sale, so be sure to check them out. I love them because they are high rise. I honestly don’t think I can wear a pair of jeans anymore that aren’t.

Boots. 

Okay so funny story about these boots, my mom originally bought they on sale at Younkers last year for herself, but with much persuasion and the fact that I had to buy her a similar new pair she let me have them since I was obsessed with them. (She’s such a good mom!) I’ve linked some similar ones!

Younkers

Nordstrom

Hat. 

Hat came from American Eagle this spring, but they have some cute one’s on sale for super cheap, so be sure to grab one before they disappear.
