Fall has never looked so good! I’ve got a huge soft spot in my heart for Boulder, CO in October. Boulder is a dream every month of the year but Boulder in October is truly magical. I think back to college and I can’t believe I got to live in Boulder for four years! I shot this plaid skirt (last seen here) in Boulder on my favorite street in town, Mapleton Avenue. The street is lined with the most gorgeous trees that light up for fall in every shade of red, yellow, and orange. I must say, I thought my plaid skirt in Boulder fit right in!
I snagged this Vineyard Vines plaid skirt last fall but I’m clearly still wearing it a year later. I searched high and low for an identical skirt (similar) and I happily found a few handfuls of very similar plaid skirts (below). I like the look of a plaid skirt in Boulder with bare legs in early fall or in a place that doesn’t get too cold. I also like the look of my plaid skirt with tights in the winter.
I styled my plaid skirt with my black matte Hunter Boots. I wear these boots in rain, snow, and just when I’m trekking around outside. I also have these boots in a fun bright blue color. I really have my eye on a pair of red Hunter boots. How fun would red ones be around the holidays?!
I wear this quilted vest (on sale!) with just about everything. Y’all are lucky because J.Crew has released it every year for the last few years. Last year, it sold out though so I recommend seriously thinking about adding it to your closet now. It’s a great layering piece!

Thank you so much Diana! I’m in love with the scallop hem too! You absolutely have to find a time to go to Boulder! If you do, then shoot me an email and I’ll fill you in on all the spots you have to go to! XO, Jillian
Oh Jillian you look gorgeous and seeing you wearing your Wellingtons makes me very happy, perfect boots for autumn walks, me and my Girlfriend often pull our Wellingtons on and walk in the fields and no matter what the weather our Wellingtons ensure our nylon Stockings are kept dry.
Thank you so much Julia! So true because they are comfy enough for long walks! I’m so glad you liked the post!! xx, Jillian
