Happy Tuesday, Honeys!
I’m super excited about this post because I just got back from an amazing little vacation to Denver, Colorado. It was my second time going there and I just absolutely love the laid back atmosphere and beautiful scenery. The first trip I took was mostly dedicated to exploring the mountains and taking in a whole new view with my best friends, while this time was spent with family and dedicated to checking out the city. I am such a sucker for big cities, a weekend getaway full of local grub and vintage shopping is basically my dream. In this post I’ll give you an in-depth look on what I wore, what I did, and of course, what I bought while in Denver.
WHAT I WORE
I stuck with a general theme of effortlessly put together, featuring hues of light denim, pink, and neutrals. I had a lot of fun playing with color and texture and overall I was pleased with my ‘fits.
In this comfy outfit I knew I wanted to highlight the pink, popcorn textured cardigan that I recently picked up from Target…Yes, TARGET. I love it so much, the color is just perfect and you all know how I feel about cardigans. I kept that the focal point by pairing it with a white crop top and some light wash mom jeans, both Brandy Melville.
I really wish I had gotten a whole outfit pic, but this is what I wore to a concert on Friday night. It was freezing up in Red Rocks Amphitheater so I decided to wear my roommate’s thrifted black turtleneck under a super soft teddy coat and I dressed it up with this dope Forever 21 stacked necklace. I wore some mom jeans on bottom and black booties to keep warm.
This has to be my fav fit. Neon is a huge trend this fall so I decided to experiment with that by rocking a hot pink sweater from H&M under this perfect fall blazer I picked up from work (Dress Barn). The sweater was originally quite a bit longer but I cut it into this cropped length to make me look taller and just fit my style more. I also wore this outfit with some distressed boyfriend jeans and black booties.
This was my comfy airport outfit. I would’ve loved to be wearing leggings, but I needed more space in my bag and had to wear my bulkiest jeans…Lol so I paired them with this thrifted Harley Davidson tee and the same fuzzy jacket as before. Air Force Ones and gold jewelry make the outfit look a lot more together than the effort it required.
WHAT I DID
The reason I actually made a trip to Denver in the first place was for a Blackbear concert in Red Rocks Ampitheatre. After spending Friday having nice coffee chats with my dad, exploring downtown Denver, and of course, hitting the local dispensary, I enjoyed the beautiful concert by myself. It was such a lively show and an experience I have dreamed of for so long. I did go alone but I danced my heart out and ended up meeting some really cool local gals. The next day was mostly dedicated to vintage shopping and more city exploring while just unwinding from the chaos of everyday. It was much needed and much appreciated I must say. If you’re in Denver you just have to experience the amazing local coffee shops and Mexican restaurants. They are definitely worth the hype.
WHAT I BOUGHT
The first store I bought something at was the Forever 21 in downtown Denver where I picked up that taupe sweater dress (bottom left) along with the gold stacked necklace (top right) and the gold coin necklace that I paired with the dress.
The other store I shopped at was Buffalo Exchange where I picked up that sweet Jimi Hendrix shirt, the snakeskin loafers, perfect pink sunglasses, and the plaid trousers. Overall I think each piece is super unique and something I’ve been searching for for a while now.
And that’s a wrap, honey! I really hope you all enjoyed getting a closer look at my recent weekend get away. I would totally recommend Denver for an escape from the chaos of our everyday lives. ‘Til next time! <3
