Pumpkin picking is a fairly new tradition for us - but we had an absolutely fabulous time picking out some lovely ones at Over Farm in Gloucestershire. We found some perfect for carving that are currently taking up every free surface in the house - but all of us are looking forward to lots of pumpkin soup.
Fig took the opportunity to wear her Pumpkin Hat (we're no longer taking orders for these, but if you're crafty then check out our Pumpkin Hat Beanie PDF Knitting Pattern - you've got just enough time to whip one up before Halloween and they look great all Autumn) and her NICKY Jacket, and we felt inspired to put together a little pumpkin picking look-book, as we know how important it is to look cool and cosy at the pumpkin patch.
For little ones who aren't walking (but who also happen to look super cute posing with pumpkins), we love our cosy FINLEY romper, with tights, a long sleeve vest and one of our Winter Berry Cardigans. Top off the look with a pair of Cotton Pram Shoes (we have lots of different colour and appliqué options) and a Corduroy Oakley Pixie Bonnet to keep those little heads warm. We think a cute gnome vibe would be a hit at the pumpkin patch!
This look is the same as what Fig was sporting at the patch this week - she paired her NICKY Jacket, with a Pumpkin Hat, some jeans and a polo (both models own). For an even cosier outfit, swap out the jeans for our BOBBIE Denim Overlock Dungarees, and you have the perfect retro Autumnal vibe.
And finally, another look perfect for both boys and girls, we have our Pumpkin hats again, teamed with our GEORGE Jumbo Cord Trousers (which are the perfect colour for disguising those mud patches everyone seems to attract when rambling through a field!), one of our Upcycled SAGE Shirts, and for extra warmth, our Felix Waistcoat. This look is perfect for a warmer Autumn day, and could be layered further for a cute cosy look.
These are just a couple of ideas for outfits from some of our favourite Autumnal pieces. Not only are these pieces cute and will look great in photos - they're also comfortable, made from natural materials, and perfect for exploring in too!
Most importantly though, don't forget to have fun and get very muddy picking a barrow full of pumpkins! And of course if you have time create a delicious pumpkin soup with the carving waste, and leave the outer pumpkin in the garden for the wildlife to enjoy.
