Faux Suede Jacket to Transition to Fall

So, I've been just starting to get into a fall mood. I'm still not willing to pull out all the stops, but I have found myself slowly wearing less color (and definitely fewer hot pink statement earrings). I think that's what happens every year - I slowly start to go monochrome / neutral but don't drop the white. Because really, who is ready to drop the white just because of an arbitrary holiday weekend?! 

What I'm most excited to start to wear now that temperatures have fallen a little is this faux suede jacket! I picked it up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it was definitely my best purchase. I'm seriously going to wear this thing to death. It's amazingly soft, the drape is great, and while it is definitely a jacket it can feel more like styling a cardigan - perfect for transitioning into fall and impossibly chilly offices. Even not on sale, it's only $88 and now comes in a couple more colors now like blue and olive

How has your week back from the long weekend been? Usually those shorter weeks are rough because I'm trying to squeeze in the same amount of work into four days instead of five, but this one hasn't been so bad. Jeff and I have just spent our evenings catching up on work (for him) and blog stuff (for me) instead of going out, but really, that's the norm for us. We have Cubs tickets for Friday night so we'll get a little fun time in then. 

This four day week is especially sweet for me because my next TWO work weeks are four days too!! We're finally heading out to Colorado for my cousin's wedding, which I think I've been talking about for freaking forever. I don't know about you, but my family knows how to throw a good party - our family weddings are always so fun!! We're staying at Chatauqua for the weekend in little individual cabins, and from what I hear it's supposed to be absolutely beautiful. 

Right now I'm a little nervous because the last time I was in Colorado I was fourteen and I had the worst altitude sickness the first day. Honestly, I was fourteen and I'm pretty sure I threw a temper tantrum because I felt so terrible. Of course, we were in Breckinridge for that trip, and are going to Boulder this time, so I'm hoping this trip won't be so bad. Tell me it's going to be okay, please.

Have you been to Boulder recently? Anything we should add to our must see list?
