October Brings A Crisp Golden Fall
October is here and so is the fall weather. The season has started to change rapidly with a very overcast day on October 1st that was chilly enough to pull out the sweater layers. The change in weather has me preparing for the colder months ahead and for my trip to Breckenridge. I am anxious to visit the mountains again this weekend to see the aspen leaves changing to golden yellow. They should be at their peak when we arrive and the crisp autumn air will be in full effect at the higher elevation.
I have been obsessing over every warm shade of yellow and orange that I see in the new autumn collections. Yellow has never been a color I have been drawn to in the past, so I had to change that this year. I bought this Dôen blouse to make up for the lack of yellow in my fall wardrobe. Now it is the only marigold or golden yellow in my closet, but it is a good place to start. I am hoping to add more of this color with a few sweaters and maybe a vibrant dress or coat to match the autumn scenery here in Colorado.
The Golden Aspen Trees in Colorado
Fall in Colorado is nothing like what you find on the East Coast. The array of fall colors is not vibrant shades of red, orange, yellow and green. Our aspen trees in the mountains are still a sight to see but since there is only one tree that changes color in our mountain forests the color variety sticks to shades of yellow and sometimes there is a hint of orange, but never any deep reds like you would see from a maple tree in Vermont. Our fall colors may be different but they are still breathtaking in their own unique way. The vibrant shades of yellow that paint the high country make wearing the color a very festive choice. I really love matching such colorful scenery whenever I get the chance.
The Fall Dôen Collection
As you may already know, Dôen is one of my favorite brands. The more items I buy from them the more I fall in love with them. Every Dôen piece that I own is some of my most worn items in my closet. And the new fall collection has me in trouble because every piece is absolutely dreamy. Only the first chapter of the fall collection has been released for pre-order and now with every sneak peek, I am getting more anxious to see the second and third drops of the fall collection. I know everything will be a beautiful addition to my fall wardrobe and it will be a hard choice because I will want to buy it all.
I always especially love the prairie-style dresses and their classic cotton blouses. Like this golden-yellow Jane blouse in clove that I am wearing. These easy blouses go well with jeans and skirts and make an easy day look that you can layer with a chunky sweater when the autumn air is crisp and cool. The sweaters from Dôen are especially gorgeous and look incredibly cozy. I hope I can get my hands on one, one of these days. They are quite the investment piece but I know that it would be a quality investment that I would be able to wear with most of my fall and winter wardrobe. I will just have to save my money and hope one is still in stock.
