This is the blogging equivalent of "the dog ate my homework".
For starters, having dragged Master P to a pumpkin patch last year, eagerly anticipating lots of Smug Family fall photos (which I didn't even know was a thing before I had kids - hello, Facebook era!), I've learned my lesson. I'd sooner drown myself in a vat of candy corn than drive an hour to chase him around a bunch of gourds again.
Rather than authentic pumpkin patch photos with a human child, then, you're getting me + my backyard + my other child, who is a ham and will actually sit still for photos.
Also, today you get headless photos since my facial region wasn't cooperating. I'd even bothered to do hair and makeup that day too. I know, I know - I'll *never* sign with a decent modeling agency at this rate.
In any event, if I were making the trip this year, here the simple getup I'd be wearing

outfit details: tee (old Target) / pants (old Gap, update here) / shoes (Target) / watch (Michael Kors) / leather bracelet (Embellish - yes, it's a nail salon) / bamboo bracelets (old KJL, similar here)
How did I do for my (completely imaginary) Smug Family photos?
