Pendleton 49er at the Pumpkin Patch

1940s pendleton 49er jacket aris allen wedges and heyday vintage trousers

You know, I am really enjoying all of these outfit posts lately. I feel like this  blog started as a fashion blog and although I blog about fashion, I don't ever show my wonderful collection. I'm so happy to be taking this blog back to where I started. Not to mention, outfit posts are so fun!!


 Yesterday, I wore my very first vintage Pendleton 49er jacket. Isn't the color divine? The shoulder seam had come undone when I bought it but a quick repair made it good as new.  I have a love-hate relationship with this jacket. I love the style, I love the color but gosh, it's hard to match! I like to add unexpected color combos but I demolished my closet before settling on the shirt I'm wearing underneath. I tried green but it was too green. I tried brown, but that's an obvious choice. I tried a yellow but it looked like baby poo. I tried purple but I felt like an oompa loompa. You get the idea....



Finally, I went to Design Seeds to check out some pretty color palettes and it helped me through getting dressed. I know, total first world problem here!

 Daniels Farm and Greenhouse in St Peters, MO has a wonderful autumn pumpkin patch set-up. They had a huge straw maze, big enough for grown-ups to play.



We pet some sheep, cows and goats and watched the piggies brawl





We spent most of our time playing in the corn boxes




At the end of the day, I had about 2 cups of corn in my bra and corn bits all over my pants. Rhys had corn in his diaper and everything but we had a wonderful time!

  4. What a fun day with an equally fun jacket to enjoy it in! You've reminded me that my own Pendleton coat is in need of some repair, which I'd be smart to do before the weather gets really cold! My coat is a longer one though. Now I really want a shorter jacket like yours. :D

  6. I love the photographs of you in the corn boxes, looks like lots of fun was had by all! All of my 49ers are predictable, Christmas-y plaids, I had no idea they even came in such a glorious color; you look fabulous!

  9. The jacket is gorgeous! Too bad the colour is so hard to match, but I love the simple white blouse with it. Really, the jacket adds all the "pop" the outfit needs to look smashing =)
    I also love your hair like this! The colour and the cut may be my favorite of all your lovely styles! (But then you always look so amazing I tend to think "That's my favorite" everytime =) )

  18. Such fabulously fun photos! I've never laid in a bed of corn kernels before, it seems appealing though - they're such a neat texture, it might even feel a little like getting a massage. You guys go on the best family outings!

    Happiest Halloween wishes!!!

  21. I just got a fifties wool pendleton a-line skirt at goodwill yesterday for two bucks! :D It is the first truly vintage item I've bought since going vintage. Up till now I've been relying on new clothes with a genuine vintage look. ;-) So I looked up pendleton online and I learned about the 49er jacket. Now I have to find one. :-)
