I am very glad I was able to capture these fall pictures. A corn maze and a pumpkin patch are classic Halloween/fall activities. It’s hard to believe these were taken under a month ago. Sadly since it has already started snowing here; I fear we have bypassed fall and moved straight to winter. The wind is so cold it is painful! I feel like this excursion was the only real happy fall day I had.
We needed to go see T’s parents in London, ON to handle an errand. I said I would only make the drive if we could do something fun afterwards lol. In my mind fun would be afternoon tea or a pumpkin patch and corn maze! It is really a fall tradition.
Before making our way back to the big city I Googled farm options on our route home. Brantwood Farms seemed like the best bet as it had the most activities. I must admit last year was the first time I ever visited a pumpkin patch. Before I’d ever been to a one I envisioned walking through a field and picking the most perfect orange pumpkin from the vines. So I was disappointed in learning a pumpkin patch is just a bunch of pumpkins laying on the lawn. It does make sense, the farmers can’t risk their crops! But I was still saddened…oh well it was still festive and made a good photo experience.
We visited Brantwood because they had a corn maze and other haunted activities. Generally most were too kid friendly for my liking. But I enjoyed the corn maze, I believe we took longer to get out of it than the children. They also had some odd Disney and cartoon character cut outs and scarecrows throughout the maze. I suppose it was to make the little ones excited and more comfortable; but i found this frozen princess creepy! What do you think?
For the outfit I wore these burgundy and gold tights I scored from Top Shop ages ago with jean shorts. I just love these tights but it is hard to find the right outfit to show them off without just wearing black. I paired them with a white shirt and military inspired jacket. The jacket is a nicer sweatshirt material and I am channeling Sargent Pepper in it. This fall day was unusually hot – I even had to take my jacket off. I didn’t think out the shoes; they weren’t sensible for a corn maze. Red lips and a gold necklace were my accessories.
