I Love Fall Most of All

It’s fall! I can’t express how much I love this season. I know I’m not alone in this feverish enthusiasm when a slight chill blows past, the leaves are about to change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves and I can wear the warm, yummy colors of fall fashion. Plus, October is my birthday month, which gives me one more reason to celebrate.

A Layered Look for Leadville

This year I started my fall adventures early in mid-September with a trip to Leadville, Colorado. This little, historic mining town sits at the highest point in Colorado and is the first to have cooler tempertures and the changing colors in the trees.

I did a little fall fashion shopping before the trip, and now that I live in a colder climate, I’m learning how to layer my vintage and vintage-inspired clothes. I invested in two cardigan sweaters in blue and tan, colors I never used to wear because I found them to be too conservative. Well, I’ve learned that paired with rich fall tones, these shades really pop. They are now staples in my autumnal wardrobe!

For walking around Leadville’s main shopping street, Harrison Avenue, I created a vintage-inspired, fall fashion look with the tan cardigan over a black t-shirt and my favorite fall infinity scarf with falling leaves. I added a dark orange, vintage-reproduction swing skirt and a leather belt I picked up at Leadville’s main vintage store, the Mule Kick. Little black lace-up, moto-style boots were perfect for the 50-degree temperatures and taking in the scenery.

While we were there, we did some horseback riding through the aspen groves that were turning their stunning golden hues. These trees really are the supermodels of the forest. They are so tall and willowy and shimmer in the sunlight. I just love them!

Vintage Inspired Look for a Vintage Farm

My next fall adventure was out to the historic Ya Ya Farm and Orchid in Longmont, where they invite the public to come pick apples, pumpkins and flowers. For this, I wore another vintage-inspried look with my blue cardigan over a grey t-shirt and a plaid vintage full skirt and matching blue tights. I added my new vintage belt and a vintage satchel purse with tan lace-up and chunky, high-heeled boots.

Unfortunately, we were a little too late in the season for all the good picking, but we shopped the store where we bought pretty much everything they had made with apples and got to enjoy the lovely surroundings and pet the farm animals, including a huge white horse that took a nip at my hair! Naughty!

I’ve really been enjoying fall – and fall fashion shopping – this year and it’s not over yet! Stay tuned for more outfits and adventures in Colorado!

Hooray for Fall Fashion!

k150_24heel iconIt’s finally FALL – my favorite season! It means the weather is turning cooler, pumpkin-flavored treats are everywhere, the holidays are coming and best of all, FALL FASHION!

Living in Southern California, I sadly miss out on the turning of the leaves and summer heat lingers clear through October. But I’m making my wish list of snuggly clothes to wear when we get our mere few weeks of chill in the air – and I ALWAYS take a fall birthday vacation to a place with cooler weather (another reason I love this time of year!)

Here are some of my top picks for stylish fall fashion, click the images to shop*:

Shoes are scarves are the best ways to start bringing fall into your wardrobe, even if the weather hasn’t quite turned cold yet. This year, I can’t get enough of little oxford style “shooties” – more than a shoe, not quite a boot.

Paris Print Scarf Hummingbird Print Scarf

Fall means cooler weather but not quite cold yet, so light sweaters hit just the right note. I’m really picky about sweaters – they have to be soft and they have to be a little sexy or edgy because I don’t want to lose my shape or sense of style just to keep warm.

Sweater Waffle knit white fluffy sweater

This season I can already tell will be all about leggings. There are so many prints to choose from and classic black goes with everything. I’m also loving some of the slimming designs I’ve seen coming out and black leggings with a little detail like a tuxedo stripe or this tough-looking scuba style pair.

Red floral plaid leggings Black Scuba Leggings

Now for me, I don’t like wearing leggings as pants – there’s just too much butt out there for my liking. Tunics and long sweaters feel frumpy, so I like to just add a little mini skirt for coverage and then wear my regular tops, like these simple designs.

Enjoy the fall,
