Downtown Aspen…

plaid blanket scarf // marled cardigan // white long sleeve tee (I’ve been wearing it a lot…. told ya!)
Lucky wedge booties (color is “sesame”) // J.Crew earrings, bracelet
YSL lipstick in “trompe l’oeil” // David Yurman link bracelet

Downtown Aspen is perhaps the cutest “downtown” I’ve ever experienced. Shops and restaurants line the streets, complete with window boxes and flowers galore, as well as little outdoor seating areas all around. There’s even a donut cart that sells mini powdered donuts (those are next on my list!). I wore this outfit to do a little exploring downtown… we ended up walking close to two miles. These Lucky wedge booties are incredibly comfortable (and back in stock) if you need a good pair of walking booties! The best part of the outfit, though, is definitely the blanket scarf. You know I can’t resist a good blanket scarf 😉

I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday! I REALLY don’t want to head back to Charlotte – they are still experiencing heavy rain and fog and depressing conditions. I hope wherever you are that your weather is better than that!

P.S. In case you missed it, there’s a huge Tory Burch sale going on right now! Be sure to check out this blog post for my picks.

  8. I love how your scarf and bag have the same colors! Do you use bag shapers – or how do you get your Tory to keep its shape? I've tried so many bag shapers and haven't had much luck – I have the same Square Robinson tote in Tiger's Eye and can't get it to stay square (the sides get all curvy)!

  9. So cute<3

  18. where is that pretty pretty ring from on your left hand?? I love it.

  19. You really do rock the oversized scarves like no other. Truly the best fall inspiration.

    How do you pack all your bracelets and jewelry for travel? I'm always worried my pretty things are going to get banged up.

    That blanket scarf is so cute! I live in northern CO and still haven't been to Aspen. It looks so gorg!


  27. Great look for fall! I have never been to Aspen but it is on my "winter to travel to" list. Those jeans look like a perfect fit. What is the rise on them?

  28. I just love the cardigan and your fall outfits in these places have made me so jealous that I can't experience fall since moving but I'm getting my fix through your photos.
