Outfit of the Day: Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze!

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!


Last Saturday my friend and I went out for a wonderful full day outing. We started at the bi-annual Alameda Point Vintage Fashion Faire in Alameda. At first, walking in, it occurred to me this was going to be a lot smaller than the Vintage Fashion Expo that I went to a few weeks ago, but as we walked around and started looking through the 50+ vendor's booths I realized this one actually had a lot more clothes which is the thing I really want to look at! :) This time, I walked away with a lovely 1960's purple boucle cape! It was the first thing that caught my eye and I learned from the last vintage fashion expo that if you see something you like you'd better grab it quick because you never know if it's going to last! I'm totally looking forward to the next upcoming one later in the year! Maybe for that one I will be better about taking photos.

After the fashion faire we had lunch on Alameda's main shopping street, Park St, and popped into my favorite vintage shop there, Juniper Tree Vintage, where I found a super cute small sized vintage style Halloween cat lantern to add to my one item collection. Maybe you can spot it behind me in my Outfit of the Day photos below?

After we had our fill of Alameda we drove to Livermore to go to the corn maze and pumpkin patch!! This stop was precluded by a necessary stop at Starbucks along the way for pumpkin spice lattes <3

Let's see how I've grown!





Outfit of the Day:
For this day's activities I couldn't resist wearing my Trashy Diva Lena Picnic dress in black and white Gingham! Black and white gingham is just to fall to me!! <3 I paired this a vintage short sleeve orange collared cardigan which I found at a local shop, 23 Skidoo, earlier this summer, black flats, and Halloween cat earrings from Rosita Bonita which I got from Trashy Diva

    1. Thank you Bristol! I'm so happy they brought back the style of the picnic dress! It's a super fun dress to have! I had the hardest time deciding on the b&w version or the red version! Looking forward to trying on the red version in store one day soon though! :)
