Hey everyone! It really feels like fall right now in Dallas and I just got around to visiting the Dallas Arboretum’s Pumpkin Village! Its been raining a ton here and there were a few hours of sunshine Sunday morning so David surprised me with tickets! Last Christmas, he surprised me with tickets to their 12 Days of Christmas light display and that was lovely. The Pumpkin Village may have topped it though!
So everything was soaked when we walked through there but that didn’t stop me from wearing my favorite leather boots and sitting on damp pumpkins! David followed me around taking photos as requested and made sure to get a cute one of me in the pumpkin patch wearing this adorable Lauren James flannel boyfriend shirt. I bought it last March during one of their sales and I kid you not it was on clearance for $8! I should have bought two and could smack myself for not. Here’s a similar one, although not on sale.
I definitely recommend investing in some flannel for fall and winter. Its always been a staple in any wardrobe and I can’t fathom it going away in the future. My favorite times of the year to buy flannel shirts, dresses, and even blankets are in late winter or early spring. Brands like L.L. Bean, Kiel James Patrick, and J. Crew put a lot of their winter basics on sale or clearance right around then so its the perfect time to stock up! As for now, watch for Christmas sales from these brands because they do a lot of gift-giving promotions and things like flannel scarves are popular sale items! Happy shopping!
