I absolutely love everything about fall. The cool, brisk air that allows for boots, scarfs and sweaters. Ordering and buying anything pumpkin-spice related at Trader Joe’s & Starbucks (I must sound totally basic to you guys, huh?) And last but not least, I love escaping Denver to head up to the mountains to check out the fall foliage. So last weekend, Josh, Phoebe and I, piled into the car to go hiking at Kenosha Pass and to see the fall foliage. Since we planned to hike for a few hours, I was so excited to use my High Sierra hot-pink coverup & rose backpack to stay warm and carry all of our stuff!

And I’m so glad I brought them! Since weather in the Rockies can be so unpredictable, the coverup kept me warm and cozy the entire morning! My favorite part about my new pieces is that they are both so cute yet so functional! Since moving to Colorado in 2014, I have discovered a whole new meaning when it comes to functional fashion. So whenever I see warm clothes that are also cute, I honestly get so excited about it. Like no joke, I’ve been wearing my hot-pink coverup all…the….time…. The material is so high quality and made amazingly well. I know it’s going to last me for several fall and winter’s to come!
Also, how cute is this pack? It’s so lightweight, holds so much stuff, and the quality is amazing! It’s durable, sturdy and made incredibly well! I see this pack being used in many, many weekends away as my carry on (or let’s face it, just to carry all my shopping purchases…)

And let’s just talk about the fall foliage of Colorado for a second… I mean!! Hearts for eyes, am I right?! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’m a wee bit obsessed with posting the leaves we stumbled and hiked upon in Kenosha Pass. For those of you not familiar with the magic of Pike National Forest, Kenosha Pass is nothing short of pure magic in the fall. The Aspen leaves turn a vibrant, golden-yellow and their so delicate, that they look like their dancing in the wind. It’s quite the sight to be seen.
So if you find yourself in Colorado during the fall, be sure to check out the leaves at Kenosha Pass. Biggest tip I can give you? Go before the end of September, because anything later, you might be screwed in the pretty leaf department.
As the temps are starting to drop, I hope y’all find yourselves warm and cozy also. And if not, then there are always cute High Sierra sweaters to do the job!
