Cutest Pumpkins in the Patch

Cutest Pumpkins in the Patch

As we are now stumbling onto the halfway mark of October, I decided its time to drag my adorable boyfriend along to do insanely ridiculous fall stuff. This means pumpkin patches, hiking, carving pumpkins, and maybe even picking apples if we get the opportunity. This past weekend we revisited a little pumpkin patch area, took plenty of pictures, and I wore a pretty cute outfit that I wanted to share with all of you.

As you arrive at Ellis Pottery in Longview, TX, you will be greeted by this giant friendly pumpkin, (just in case you thought you were in the wrong place).

Pumpkins literally lined the entire property. I would NOT want to work in that farm. I love pumpkins,  but there is no way I’m washing all these bad boys. No thank you. Whoever took the time to make sure pumpkins were everywhere you could see, they did a fantastic job. I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Definitely put me in the fall mood.

Dakota and I had a great time here. There was a little walk way that was soooo spooky, decorated with cute Halloween decor. String lights hung all around the path, which I bet would’ve been super romantic at night. Pumpkin towers stood in random places, and if there were ever a place to have a fall photo shoot, this would be it. Maybe there will be a new lookbook or something coming out for y’all………we’ll have to see.

Besides the pumpkins, there was also plenty of flowers. They had annuals, semi-annuals, succulents, you name it. I wanted to pick me up a few but decided that my wallet deserved a much needed break. The colors and smells of this place were really something special. Such a cool little spot in our tiny neck of the woods.



These little guys had to be the most perfect pieces of nature I’ve ever seen. How is it possible to grow something that looks right off a dictionary picture? Now there were obviously plenty of perfect pumpkins, but I’m pretty sure Dakota and I were the cutest throughout the entire patch.

As far as my outfit goes, I wore a plain black T-shirt (my boyfriend’s), and some burnt orange jeans (from La’Patricia), which y’all should already know is my favorite color, and my staple black booties (JCPenny’s). An outfit like this one, that is inclusive of fall colors, is such an easy way to feel festive and trendy without going all out.

I had an absolutely amazing time here at Ellis Pottery. It was a great day we’ll never forget, and if you ever have an opportunity to go to a place like this one, definitely go. Having fun adventures such as this one makes me excited to see what else the season has in store for us.

 

Until next time,

 

Fall Haul 

Recently I have been on the no spending game. Like maybe I bought food and school supplies, but I NEED those things. So for a few months it was “no new clothes”, “no new makeup”, and it was also closet purging time. So I ended up with literally nothing. I didn’t have any new looks to show y’all because I had no new clothes, and most importantly, no inspiration. Well last week, I said “you know what, I deserve to let loose.” And I took myself on a shopping spree. Today’s post is Part. 1 of 2. The next part will come next Monday. 

This adorable mustard shirt I got at Pacsun. I love the color, which I never thought I would. I hatteedd, I mean absolutely despised the color yellow, but it’s hitting me hard this season. The little pocket in the front is cute, even if I’ll never use it. 

Shirts like these I don’t usually go for because they’re just plain. I’m more drawn to graphic tees because I feel it is so much easier to translate your true self when wearing them. But a shirt like this is good for layering, which will be a must(ard) this season. 

The next thing is probably my fav:

This is the only Huf shirt I own. The pale pink and light brown are just so cute. I saw this shirt and instantly imagined it tucked into high waisted jeans and I said “yep, need it.” But then I put it on and realized it could just as easily speak for itself. The only thing I wish is that the bold neckline was repeated on the sleeves and hem. But I’m still in awe for this top. 

I mean look at it. Is it vintage? Is it modern? I can’t tell. I don’t care. It’s my new staple. That’s for dang sure. 

But in case anyone forgot I was a 90’s girl:

“Mamaaaaaaaaa, ooooooohhhoooo, I don’t wannaaaa diieeee” 

I know this isn’t Queen band merch, but that’s all I can think of when I see this crop top. 

I’m almost positive this is a GUCCI design knock off, but I prefer this. The red stripes against the white instantly reminds me of 90’s fashion for some reason. I actually saw this in the window display, ran back into the store to get it, and left. I needed it. How else would everyone know I’m royalty? You gotta tell em. 

My new car is turning me into a new person. You can see my attitude through my pictures. It’s gotten out of hand. 

If you follow me on Instagram (Emmakaty_), you would’ve seen this cute little piece down below. 

Just your local cool girl doing the same pose but from two different angles. I’m a creature of habit, what can I say? This jacket was actually 50% off, so I think it came in at an astounding $8.50!! How insane is that? It’s velvet AND embroidered. And pink. When do I wear pink??? 

I love this jacket. Bombers and motos are so in for fall every year. Velvet is still going strong, and I have a feeling it will stay that way all the way up into the holidays. New color trends: mustard, orange, denim, and browns. But there’s one more trend I have for yall:

I don’t remember what on the ground was so interesting. 

I’m telling y’all right now, don’t sleep on me. I’m really feeling this season. Follow me on twitter  (Jesuisart) or whatever you gotta do to keep up with my #ootd. 

The burnt orange in this shirt is just perfect. It’s so vibrant and noticeable. 

It’s really easy to make a statement outfit with this shirt alone. I’m in love. Tie Dye is gonna be in y’all. You heard it here first.

#OOTW (Summer)

So I never really got the opportunity to do a summer look book for you guys, even though I was dying to. I really really was. But I figured I could conjure up the next best thing, and make an Outfit Of the Week post, sharing with you all what I’ve been wearing on a regular basis.

I ran a voting post on my twitter: (@JeSuisArt) and I got some good feedback saying that a fall/back to school lookbook would be very interesting! So I will definitely get that going for yall. Follow me on Twitter so you can see some more stuff, and even have a deciding factor in what you’d like to see on my blog! I love getting feedback and hearing from y’all.

So let’s get started. Basically, in the summer my wardrobe consists of a lot of T-shirts, shorts, and the every occasional killer outfit. It can be very hard to style statement pieces in the heat, but sometimes I get lucky. The week below was a compilation of these outfits. I hope you like them. 

Monday:

This is definitely one of my favorite outfits. I got lucky one day and found this adorable graphic crop top. And then, I remembered these white linen shorts. So comfy, let me tell you. But as I stood in the mirror, it just felt like something was missing. I felt overexposed basically. And you know what I say, “when in doubt, wear a button down”. I threw on the oversized button down, and viola. A super amazing outfit was born. 

The fit itself was comfy, but paired with the oversized shirt, it got borderline heat stroke hot. So although I loved this look for the first hour or two of my day, it became kind of unrealistic as the sun got higher and higher in the sky. Nevertheless, it’s definitely an outfit I love. 

Tuesday:

See that smile? That’s the smile of a girl who IS NOT dying of heat stroke. This outfit was inspired by my work schedule. All my coworkers probably have seen my favorite T’s by now, seeing as I am an outfit repeater. Since I was working this day, I decided to make sure I was comfortable, wearing this oversized shirt (so soft) and these dark wash denim shorts (so flattering). Shoutout to Jo’s for letting me wear shorts. I can’t wait for our NTCC location to open!! 

Wednesday:

You can never go wrong with stripes.

Please ignore my hair in these pictures. My hair was perfect when I left my house, but the humidity got the better of it. The headband helped, like I metioned it would in my Tips for Lazy girls post. <<<check out that post for some super cute tips!!  But anyway, back to the outfit. Even though this T-shirt dress is long sleeve, it has been a staple this summer. The fabric is lightweight, the fit is loose (unless you wear a cute belt on your waist like I do), and it’s easy to just throw on. Simple, chic, and breathable. 

Thursday:

Dresses are an easy heat fix in the summer. It’s a way to be covered, but also have freedom, and breathability. I love sundresses, and lately midi dresses have been my rage. 

See it!? There’s that not dying of heat stroke smile again. I went out to dinner with my book club girls so I wanted to get a bit dressed up. This dress, as you loyal followers will know, is from 2020Ave. The olive green cardigan is from deep within the depths of my closet (I have no idea where it came from, but you could easily find a similar one in your local thrift store). To add some styling I tied the cardigan into a knot in front of my chest. I think it just adds a little sum. And the DRESS! Let’s zoom in on this print. 

Get can’t enough!! Can’t get enough of this stunning fabric. So easy to style, and so east to transition among the seasons. Definitely proud of this outfit. 

Friday:

If you follow me on Instagram (emmakaty_) you would have seen this outfit not too long ago.  As you can tell, the sun was especially bright that day. This is perhaps the best outfit of this whole week in my opinion. Let me explain why: 

This is kind of just me walking around in pajamas. Oversized shirt. Super soft shorts. What else does a girl need? I love the mix of the yellow words and blue fabric shorts. I just think the combination is artistic, if that makes sense. This outfit has all the elements of fashion needed to stunt. Colors, silhouette, comfortable, breathable, adorable, affordable unique, and it’s really basically PAJAMAS. It does not get any better than that my friends. 

Comment and let me knkw which one is your favorite!! You have a pretty diverse #OOTW to choose from. This is literally my style all the time, constantly changing. I like to keep everyone on their toes. But I’m always stylish. Thanks for reading!! 
Peace,
