From the title of this post, you were probably expecting something a little more autumn-y than this outfit, but we have had record high temperatures in Denver over the last couple weeks. I'm getting as much mileage out of my summer clothes as I can while it lasts!

Hope you have a great week!

As soon as this hot weather leaves Colorado, you'll be seeing some of these pieces on the blog!

Fall Fashion with H&M + Hello, Framboise

I've partnered with H&M this week to show you some fall pics from their latest new arrivals! I loved picking out a fun fall look to style, especially during this transition season when you get to wear summer clothes one day and winter clothes the next (like in Denver last week!).

The denim department at my H&M has expanded quite a bit. I counted a minimum of 20 different styles and a variety of waist and inseam sizes to choose from. I love the distressed pieces, but unfortunately, there were none available in my size. Although they'll be pictured in a later post, I did pick up a perfectly-fitted pair of the slim black jeans (size 23/30) that I'm excited to wear this winter.

H&M never fails to deliver on accessories, and this year is no exception. There were so many pretty and cozy-looking scarves--I think I'll be headed back soon to stock up on snoods like the one I'm wearing here.

Now here is the fun part--H&M wants to outfit one of you lovely readers, too! The first reader today who reposts an Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook post with one of my photos from this post and tags the following:

Fall in the Mountains

Pardon Moi Sweater + Stuart Weitzman Boots

Stuart Weitzman Boots + Jeans + Leather Jacket

Jacket: Zara (similar in petite and regular sizing from Nordstrom and in faux leather at Ann Taylor | Sweater: ASOS (previously styled here and here) | Jeans: Topshop | Boots: Stuart Weitzman | Bag: Reed Krakoff | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Necklace: Arden B. | Bracelets: David Yurman, Tiffany | Watch: Michele | Lips: NARS "Dragon Girl"

Instead of heading to fashion week in the fall, I can usually be found heading to an annual legal education conference, and this year, we had our conference in the mountains. The dress code is very casual, so I decided to take advantage of it (and of the cooler weather!) and try out some of my new fall pieces--with a couple older favorites--for this look.

I recently picked up these jeans from Topshop and was pleasantly surprised at how nicely they fit and how comfortable they were. The material is soft with just the right amount of stretch, and the light gray acid wash was something I didn't have in my closet.

I've been looking for a pair of boots like the Stuart Weitzman 5050 for a while since the 5050 didn't work well for my wider feet. I ended up finding a new-in-box pair (also by Stuart Weitzman) in an older style with a slightly higher heel via Poshmark that worked for me (the Hijack looks like a similar current style). I was able to walk around all day in them up in the mountains with no foot fatigue despite the heel. I'm hoping I won't be able to wear them in Denver for a little while yet, though--I'm not ready to embrace winter temperatures quite yet!

Happy Monday!
