Styling My Way Through a Corn Maze: White Jeans Outfit #2


One of my favorite family traditions that we have as a family is going to Youth Bible Corn Maze in Rosthern.  Years ago we stumbled upon it somehow and just kept returning to it time and time again, until it became a fall tradition for our family, read about last years adventures here.  Over the years have watched the business grow and include more and more things to do and explore.  There are the two corn mazes, kids and adults, petting zoo, climbing wall, pumpkin patch picture area, train rides, etc.  We've done it all over the many years we've gone but the last two years the exciting thongs for the girls have been conquering both mazes and finding all four secret stamps.  This year we started in the adult maze because it took us forever last year, like a solid hour, but this year we found the three stamps within the first 15 minutes.  We just got really lucky but then we ventured into the kids maze feeling pretty cocky and it took us at least a half-hour to find the one stamp.  I guess you just never know when you'll get lucky and choose all the right turns and when you wont.  Hahaha.  Either way we got all four stamps and the kids were thrilled!  What a wonderful way to spend a glorious Sunday afternoon as a family.

Now on to the outfit.  If you stopped by last Friday you know that I have three ways to wear white jeans in the fall, see outfit #1 HERE.  For the corn maze I used country style for inspiration.  It was the white jeans that I started with when picking out this outfit, it was that I really wanted to wear my cowboy boots that don't get a lot of love in the city.  That was my starting point and then my plaid shirt complements the colors on the cowboy boots so well, plus is PLAID (enough said).  Because I layered a black tank underneath so I could knot tie my shirt without belly showing, I figured the white jeans were the perfect contrast and pop of color for this outfit.  I absolutely love how easy, relaxed, natural and perfectly this outfit came together for this particular event.  Honestly I really wanted to just go all causal and natural, minimal make-up (foundation, mascara and lip chap ) and blow-dried my hair, that's it.   This look would work for any country outing, pumpkin patch, apple patch, zoo trip or a stroll through the woods.  





I hope you all enjoy your weekend.  We are off to spend time with our friends in Regina and big news coming from the Krienke family next week on IG.

    1. That made me smile. I am not a fan of things like fun houses or haunted houses, we all have our stuff. We did have fun. 😊

    1. Thank you. I love your Apple picking tradition but we live in a cooler climate so we don't have any orchards, but would really enjoy that if we have an opportunity.

  6. Love the little knot in the plaid shirt. Gives it a lot more style and "fun" I think. Great outfit. We love corn mazes and I really with there were an adult one around (I should look on line). We were just at the pumpkin patch this afternoon and our 13 year old daughter wanted to go through the kid's maze so there we were going through the 2 foot high corn maze with all the little kids.

    1. You made the best of what was there and there is nothing wrong with being young at heart. We do enjoy the challenge as a family and it keeps us busy and entertained for a few hours with all the extras. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. The four times we had gone to a corn maze, we never made it out! Lol The maze was fun for my son as he just wanted to run but for the rest of the group it was kind of frustrating! Cute outfit for the corn maze. You can never go wrong with plaid and white jeans just make this look fresh and cool. Happy weekend!

    1. Oh my gosh, that transported me to a time when the girls were under 5 and we would just do the little maze until they were tuckered out or completely lost interest (which you can appreciate is short). The different stages and phases of life bring so many new experiences. 😊

  9. Such pretty photos and I love the color of your plaid top! We just went to a pumpkin patch and I almost got to go through the corn maze, but then we split up since my daughter wanted to bounce on the huge outdoor trampoline there. Lol! Good times in the Fall! :)
