One can easily miss fall while living in New York. You know, with the whole lack of trees and what not. I haven't purchased or carved a pumpkin since before moving to Brooklyn and I just accepted that I was going to miss out on this beloved fall tradition for a third year in a row. Emily came to the rescue and fulfilled my fall dreams when she asked if I wanted to go pumpkin picking out on Long Island. I was more than happy to jump on the LIRR to Ronkonkoma to snatch up a few funny looking pumpkins.

It was also the perfect occasion to debut this super cute skirt that Illene from Baby Bird Vintage sent me. I've gone a bit plaid crazy this season so I jumped at the chance to add to my growing collection. The bright green is a nice change from the normal reds and maroons I've been finding in most plaid skirts this season.

Baby Bird just put out a really fantastic fall look book (look at those storm clouds!) that speaks to adventures with girlfriends and kitschy road trips, which is right up my alley. Some of the items from the look book are in the shop now and Illene is offering a whopping 25% off for you lovely readers with the code OLIVEBIRD until November 5th. Now go get yourself a pumpkin pickin' outfit!
