GIVE ‘EM PUMPKIN TO TALK ABOUT!
I’m sure by now you’re all sick of hearing about how much I LOVE Fall! I’m sorry, but I refuse to keep my love affair with the season a secret (#sorrynotsorry)!
In case you need a few reasons why Fall time is the best time, I love Fall for the FALL-owing (haha get it) reasons:
1) Of all the times to rock a dark lip, Fall is officially THE perfect time for it (we wouldn’t have #falllip or #fallmakeup if it wasn’t a thing)
2) The candles that come out for Fall are heavenly! Need proof, click here to read about my top 10 candles for Fall!
3) You can bundle up in cute cozy sweaters!
4) And speaking of being cozy, BIG….PLAID….SCARVES!!!
5) Fall fashion is AMAZING *insert heart eye emoji* – faux fur vests, ankle booties, scarves & big floppy hats!
6) It’s finally socially acceptable to indulge in scary movie marathons without seeming extra MURDER-Y
7) Annnnd my favourite reason of all….it’s PUMPKIN PATCH SEASON!
If you’re still not convinced, the proof is in the GRAM! Here’s a quick little breakdown of the number of Fall related posts on Instagram (yes I made this chart because I am THAT serious about it haha)
Anyways, you get my point right?! I’m not the only Fall obsessed weirdo out there! So now that I’ve converted you all into Fall lovers, I guess I’ll get to the point of this post.
Last weekend, my bestie and I were trying to plan the perfect girls day. Obviously for us, that could only mean two things…coffee + a pumpkin patch! We were SO excited trying to find a cute coffee shop to go to, all the while trying to coordinate our outfits (because we’re weird like that) that we weren’t thinking about one very important detail…where we were planning on indulging in all of our pumpkin patch dreams! Clearly agreeing to visit a pumpkin patch was not enough. Did you know that the Hamilton area literally has dozens of pumpkin patches to chose from?! (who knew!!)
