Glittering Aspens

These are the last of my photos from the mountains, and just look at those aspens glow! Golden yellow is one of my favorite fall colors, and here in Colorado I am spoiled rotten with aspens glittering in the sun. 

All those vintage Pendelton ads went straight to my head and I bought a length of plaid (a super soft flannel in this case) from Joanns during one of their sales to make a big full circle skirt. As much as I love pencil skirts, circle skirts are even easier to construct. Since they don't even have waist darts I can sew a skirt like this up super quick, but the hemming goes on forever! I paired the skirt with a style of top we at Banana Republic call the "snitty" (soft knit), a nice soft jersey wrap front top. I have 5 of this same knit top! I bought two (this black one and a light grey) myself on sale last year, and then my mom gave me three of her's from the year before that she never wore! I have heard a rumor we might be bringing back the style yet again this year so I am keeping an eye on new merchandise when it comes in!

The silver acorn jewelry set was a recent purchase from Etsy. I need to block that website I swear! It was so perfect for fall I had to have it. I love when I can get a whole paruer for a deal, can't beat having a set!

  1. Another stunning outfit - you certainly packed well for your trip and I am guessing just may have been the best dressed woman in the mountains. Ever!! Kx

    1. Thank you! I got some stares from hikers, but you know, high heels are my hiking shoes :)

  2. Completely gorgeous photos and outfit. I massively want a similar plaid circle skirt now. Vintage fall fashion swoon!!! :)

    Big hugs & happy weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thank you Jessica! I couldn't not have a big plaid skirt, I had to make one ASAP! Thank goodness for sales at Joanns! <3

  3. What a beautiful colour those leaves are! They make a glorious backdrop for your super outfit, that skirt is fabulous!

    1. Thanks Kate! Can't beat aspens for golden yellow :)

  4. Oooh! The gold trees are simply glorious! But your super outfit definitely gives them a run for their money... I got to say, I just adore all the plaid inspiration you are creating Bianca; I'm definitely going to be pinning these for fall/future wardrobe planning. :D ❤
