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!

  1. I wore one of my 49ers yesterday! Such a great fall staple!

  2. Cute! I just got my first 49er this month too! :) Yay for plaid!

  3. Brittany, your hair looks awesome! I absolutely love the color and cut on you!

  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

  5. Looks like so much fun! And I'm swooning over your shoes!!


  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!

  7. What a blast! My fave pics are the one where the kids are pouring corn all over you (classic mama moment!) and the last one! Such a fun day you guys had! Just gotta love the fall!! xox

  8. What a fun day! BTW, your hair looks a-mazing on you!

  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 =) )

  10. Absolutely adorable! <3

  11. wonderful pictures and wonderful you! the jacket is great and the colour fits your hair perfectly xxx

  12. These are such fun photos! I love the colour of your jacket, it's so unusual and a great autumnal shade of green. I am also really digging your new haircut - it looks so fresh and full!

  13. Your hair looks fabulous like this. Everything goes perfectly and you look really comfortable and chic.

  14. Great pictures! I love your outfit posts.

  15. It looks like you had a lovely time, great photos.

  16. What a great idea for kids to play in, I've never seen this before:) I just love petting farms for kids. They are getting more difficult to find where I live. What a perfect outfit to have a fun day in! Love the red shoes too!

  17. What a fun outfit.. The kids are really growing up ..So cute..looks like you all had a good/fun day..

  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!!!

  19. Loving your beautiful outfit! I can't believe how big the kids have gotten!!! I have been reading for a loooong time. :)

  20. Wow the jacket is awsome
    I have quite a few love hate with my stuff too :)
    Btw totally love the hair. That loose not too fluffy 40s/50s/60s with bangs is like my favorite you rock!

  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. :-)


I read every single comment (even on old posts) and they make my day! If you have a question, please email me at Thank you for reading me!
