Aspen in the Fall Pt.2

One of my favorite spots we visited during our stay in Aspen was Maroon Bells. It's funny because we expected it to be a far drive from town but it's actually only like 15 minutes away! Fall is such a popular time to visit Maroon Bells that you can only get there by bus from 8 a.m-5 p.m. I think we went just late enough in October (and at sunset) so we had almost the whole place to ourselves. It was the perfect way to end the trip!

Aspen in the Fall Pt.1

Outfit details: Cardigan | Jeans | Boots | Top | Necklace 

Caitlin and I had met a few years ago at an event in San Francisco, and we hit it off right away! We've remained friends over the years and decided it would be so fun to get together for a girls trip in Aspen. This was my first time in Aspen and Caitlin had been the year before and loved it. We flew into the Denver airport where we all met up before driving to Aspen (Caitlin and her mom flew in from North Carolina). Between the four of us girls (my sister Jasmine was also on the trip) we had so many bags we had to upgrade to a full size SUV just to fit everything in the car lol!

The Perfect Oversized Sweater

Free People Sweater (shop more FP sweaters here) | Michael Kors Mercer tote (shop more colors and sizes here) | Shop Leggings | Madewell booties

I think my favorite go-to outfit during fall is an oversized sweater with leggings and boots. It's so easy and comfy! I love this Free People sweater and have it in just about every color now (I'm wearing the terracotta color in this post here). Since it's oversized, it's the perfect length to wear with leggings without showing your bum :) For a more casual look I paired this sweater with cloth leggings but I love faux leather leggings (these ones are only $29!) for a more chic look.

Embracing Change

My hair is part of what makes me, me. I remember watching America's Top Model and seeing the contestants crying when the stylists cut off all their hair. I remember thinking, I would cry too. In fact, most people feel like their hair is part of their identity. Would you agree?

Finding Inspiration on Instagram

I love to use Instagram as a source of inspiration. There are hundreds of thousands (probably even millions) of beautiful photos and accounts to scour through from all over the world. When searching for inspo, think about the kind of photos that help you get creative and think out of the box. Below are a few of my favorite accounts!

Chasing Aspens

Shop sweaters | Jeans | Over-the-knee boots | Bag

While we were in Aspen we caught some pretty crazy weather. About a day or two after we arrived, there was a snowstorm that came through during the night and the whole town was covered in snow!! While it was very beautiful, the snow unfortunately broke a lot of the tree branches and killed off a lot of the trees. We were lucky to have come across this picturesque street the day before the storm because many of the leaves were gone a few days later. Timing the fall foliage can be so difficult...especially with Mother Nature constantly changing her mind!

Happy Tuesday! If you are following along on my Instagram, you might have seen I'm in Aspen right now with Caitlin (yay!) but here is a look I wore before I left!
