Pumpkin Picking

Last weekend Pete & I ventured out to Connecticut to go pumpkin picking courtesy of Lilla P, a brand I recently discovered when I stumbled on their shop in the meatpacking district (en route to the highline!).  They were sweet to send me some fun items from their collection and even better: a pumpkin carving kit.  Peter cackled when we received it and he put it to very good use.

On Lilla P: I'm down right snobby about my layering pieces.  Minimalist me: I try to keep my wardrobe very lean, so I seldomly add pieces to my collection.  But I have been wearing this henley every day since I received it.  Once I even wore it to bed, showered, and guiltily put it back on.  'No one will know,' I assured myself with all of the composure of a sleep deprived new mom.  It is a cotton/synthetic blend that has a great weight to it and washes well.  But the best part is the fit.  It's cozy but loose and it is the perfect length with a shirt-tail hem so it really looks great this time of year layered under sweaters.  I'm a big fan.  And also enamored of their v-neck tank.  Again, great weight, great length.

We took the train out to Greenwich for a morning stroll around Sam Bridge Nursery, which has a darling little pumpkin patch.  Jack was a little young to appreciate the festivities but we had a great time and rounded out the day with a visit with the Heimbold family to celebrate little Calliope's first birthday, replete with a puppet show and a pumpkin hunt.  It was so fun we almost forgave them for moving away from Bond Street.
