 leather skirt: vintage ~ sweater: h&m ~ spiked collared blouse: diy ~ boots: urban outfitters

I can't help it, I love dressing up for the holidays. I've been spook-ifiying my wardrobe since the first day of October! Growing up, I loved the festive printed socks that came out around the holidays—who doesn't love socks with ghosties or pumpkins, or little Santa hats in the winter? I'm glad to have found a pair of bat socks to get me in the spirit. Next month, maybe I'll find some turkey ones. ;)

Oh! And painted my nails this weekend for Halloween, and it definitely took like an hour. Priorities.

pumpkin patch

Two weekends ago, I went to the pumpkin patch with a couple other girls from the graduate English program. I realized that though I generally do many fall things, I hadn't been to a designated pumpkin patch in a long time. There's something really great about going into the field and plucking your own special pumpkin from the vine. This pumpkin patch was a little outside Raleigh, and it was nice to see more of North Carolina, as I haven't traveled much since moving here. I got to touch raw cotton for the first time (it's soft!) and ride a hay ride. Sure, we were definitely the oldest non-parents there, but everyone else is just missing out! Fall fun is the best fun. Next time, I'll feed the goats. ;)
