The Touch, The Feel of Cotton...

(on average, this is what happens when I try to take a picture with Syd.  Or hold him, or kiss him.)
T-Shirt and Tank: My Job; Jeans: Gap; Hat: J.Crew; Shoes: Sam Edelman

I think it pretty much goes without saying that we went to the Pumpkin Patch this past weekend.  Standing in a field of pumpkins doesn't really leave much to the imagination I guess.  What doesn't go without saying is how much I am really starting to fall in love with T-Shirts.  I've never been much of a T-shirt gal.  Sure, they're great to wear to the gym and lounging around the house.  But as a fashion statement?  I typically come from the school of thought that you need bright colors and interesting silhouettes to make a statement.  So when I took this job at a clothing company that has built their legacy off of a T-Shirt, I was a little leery if I would be able to drink the Kool Aid and get all hot and heavy over cotton separates.  Well hot damn, I've drank the Kool Aid and it tastes GOOOOD! (Ali that was for you).

When I tried on this new T last week, I immediately called up Miranda and said "You have got to order this shirt!  It is amazing!"  To which she replied, "Hot damn, order me one up then!"  It's loose, with just the right amount of scoop in the front, and it has this sort of dolmen type of sleeve going on that is form fitting in the arm.  It just has everything going right for it.  My view of cotton will never be the same.

You might recognize the boots from my very first Playgrounds & Lollipops post.  After 2 years they're still going strong and have the perfect lived-in look to them.  And the hat was a great find from the J. Crew outlets, just outside of Palm Springs.  Have a great week everyone!  

p.s. the only thing I don't recommend about my outfit is the cup of Chai Tea Latte.  I almost fell in the fields trying to hold onto it. 


  1. Awww....what great family Fall photos.....you look great....perfect outfit to wear to the pumpkin patch:)

    Read my Interview with Susan @ ModCloth♥

  2. Where oh where is my tee? I can't wait to try it.

  3. First off--what a beautiful family shot. Syd's just being real, and that's what makes it great.
    Second, I kept scrolling down, hoping you'd talk about the boots. LOVE THEM.
    Third, you are darling. Girl, wish I could rock a T like that!

  4. I LOVE t-shirts and have been a long-time fan of J.P. t's...ever since I worked at Nordstrom after finishing college and my friends thought I was crazy for spending $40 on a basic tee.

    That Syd and his faces - cracks me up!

  5. How does one find one of these amazing tee's?

    Like you, I was never much for t-shirts, but then I tried and was hooked!

    Love your family pics -- too cute!

  6. i adore t shirts, but ones that don't look like you would sleep in them, ya know. can you give me more deets on your tee. me likey!

  7. Soooo cute! I love the photos and that HAT rocks :D

  8. I have GOT to find that hat! I'm guessing I won't be able to since you got it at an outlet. That will be my quest for today.... find the J. Crew knitted hat.

    You are adorable, by the way.
