Even though it is officially summer, the weather in Colorado sure doesn't want to believe it. Over the weekend it rained, rained, and rained some more. On Monday the sun finally came out, so I decided an afternoon adventure was a must.
So I headed downtown and walked by my favorite alleyway mural. I've admired this old piece of advertisement for years now, and whenever I come to Glenwood walking by it is a must. I'm not quite sure how old it is, but the colors and size of it sure give it charm.
Since it was still chilly outside I went opted to bundle up a bit. I recently received this moto jacket from my lovely sponsor Shop Kempt, and I have to say, I'm in love with it. The fabric is so soft, and I just love the "edgy" look it gives off. I paired it with my favorite biker boots, and a pretty smoky crystal necklace from The Blue Balloon. It was the perfect afternoon to walk around on a chilly day.
I also sported my new favorite ring, a purchase from an art festival I visited over the weekend.
On another note, we are down to 12 days until Scott and I are together again. I seriously can't wait to pick him up from the airport and spend six whole days with him. I'm so excited for all of the adventures we will be going on. Last year we had such a great time traveling around together, visiting all of the fun tourist spots and some of my favorite restaurants. I'm not really sure of our "itinerary" yet this year (last year we just made it up as we went), but I have a feeling we may end back up here in Glenwood Springs! Last year we had a nice time walking around, holding hands, and swimming in their famous hot springs pool (although, we did like the one if Ouray better!).
Today I don't have much planned. I would like to work on a few blog posts, take a walk by the nearby lake, hit up the post office and also the local coffee shop. I may even take a trip up to a small, nearby town with my mom to check out a pottery shop.
What are you up to today? Have you ever been to Colorado? If so, what is your favorite spots?
