I figured I'd share a few things I wore in Colorado this past weekend because honestly that was the only time I got dressed this last week :) Plus, it was the first time I could actually wear Fall outfits. Score!
Since it was pretty HOT here in Houston on Friday and the weather was mild in CO Friday afternoon, I didn't want to wear anything too heavy. I also wanted to be comfy on the plane, but warm. I'm always freezing when I fly! AND, I didn't want to pack a lot. I only took one carry on. My friends call it my "Mary Poppins bag" :) LOL. I only took two pairs of shoes...the pair I wore to the airport and then a pair that I packed...oh wait....a pair of sandals, too... so I wanted to make sure that what I wore would compliment the shoes. Easy enough.
I was scrolling through a few of my boards on Pinterest and found this darling outfit I wanted to recreate and figured this was the perfect occasion to do it :) I think this will be my go-to Fall uniform as the weather starts to cool off!!! And seriously...what did we do before Pinterest?!
Chambray top: Target - no longer available (I absolutely LOVE THIS ONE ; THIS ONE is similar. THIS SHIRT is similar, too)
It was a little chillier Friday night and because I knew we'd be walking all over the place I switched out my chambray shirt for a cozy sweater. I LOVE this sweater. I bought it last year from the cutest little boutique, Gin-O, in downtown Franklin, TN. By the end of the night my feet were on fire. These booties might be cute, but they're definitely not meant for long distance walking :)
Necklace: local boutique
We woke up Saturday and drove to Breckenridge. Since I knew we'd be spending most of the day outside, I wanted comfort and coziness. Because I packed light, I wore the same white tank from the day before and switched out everything else. Don't judge. Let me just tell you that I couldn't have been more comfy. While I know that the duck boots aren't hiking boots, I'm so glad I wore them. Not only were they comfy and warm, but we ended up with our feet in the water for a little part of our mountain adventure and I was happy to have them with me :) Once we got into Breck it was a smidge warmer and I was able to take off the vest and be perfectly comfortable. Everyone said it was going to be hot last weekend and I have to laugh because my definition of hot and the Colorado definition of hot are two completely different things!!! I felt so out of place with what I was wearing compared to the locals who were in shorts and sandals!!! I was cold!!! #Texasblood
Plaid shirt: Old Navy, last year
Vest: Hazel & Olive Boutique
Duck Boots: Sperry Saltwater Duck Boot, tan & brown

I needed to be comfy on Sunday for the plane ride back home. I knew it would be cold (to me) in Breckenridge, so I wore this outfit with my duck boots while we walked around town that morning. It was SO much warmer in Denver, so I changed into sandals on the drive to the airport. PLUS, I didn't want to hassle with the boot removal at the security checkpoint. By the time we got to Houston I was hot. Still too warm for layers!!! All that to be said, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this burgundy trapeze top. It's perfect with jeans OR leggings. Looks great paired with a sweater or by itself. Love it with a scarf. Perfect with booties/boots or flats. And comfy as all get out. And it covers all the unmentionables you don't want on display :)
And these are my new favorite jeans. I had to run into Kohl's the other day to grab a gift card and walked by the Lauren Conrad display. HELLO. Why didn't I know about this sooner?! I never shop at Kohl's (for no reason, really...I just never think to go in because of where it's located). I tried on a few pair and fell in love. They were on sale for $36 and I couldn't pass them up!!! I absolutely LOVE them!
Trapeze top: Drapey Trapeze Tee, Forever 21

Conference season is about to start for me so I'll be dressing up a lot more, but until then I see days full of leggings and long tees :) Sounds just perfect for working from home!!!
