The Donkeys Next Door

Would you believe me if I told you I found these little donkeys five minutes from my house?? I was looking for a cute pumpkin place to take outfit photos with a friend and ended up finding this little roadside farm stand. In the back of the parking lot there was a mini-farm with goats, donkeys, and a ton of chickens. The chickens were aggressive, the goats were nonplussed, but the donkeys? As friendly as could be! Honestly they were so sweet. Such a fun surprise to stumble on this friendly pair of donkeys right in our neighborhood.

I loved this fall outfit! Super comfortable and can easily be warmed up with a puffer vest or jacket.

J. Crew sent me this hat as part of a press package and I didn’t know if I could pull it off. Love the idea of hats but they can be hit or miss for me! The reviews are glowing and I fully, fully agree. It’s a beautifully made hat with perfect details and a great fit.

I also want to make a note about my jeans. These are my “wear with boots” jeans. They’re from Talbots and I LOVE them so much. Unfortunately, they run a little big so I get them in petite, even though I’m not petite. As a result, they’re quite cropped… which turns out to be key for wearing with boots! It’s a good alternative to tucking jeans into boots (which I don’t find comfortable) or faking a hemline by cuffing or rolling.

I literally died when I saw your Reel of the donkeys!! And the song choice is on point for that, haha!! Good tip on the “booties” jeans because I never know what to pair with my Margaux booties, and I love them so much. 🙂


It’s across the street from a country club and in between two very suburban towns! Not even rural, which made it extra surprising

You really pull off the hat!! Your long hair and your oval face make it perfect – better than their model! These pics are great. I love your laugh with the donkeys. Keep smiling!


Thanks for the tip on the “wear with boots” jeans! I just got the new Margaux boots and absolutely love them but have been stumped on how to wear them with jeans (which is how I envisioned wearing them most). Maybe all of my jeans are just too long, lol.


Can you share where the mini farm is? I live in a neighboring town – my children would love it.
