Last of the Snow Outfit

Well, the title of this post seems hopeful that it won't snow again...which is how I'm feeling. I'm so incredibly over it, it's not even funny. But, I will miss the colder temperatures — I thrive in 40 degree weather. However, bring on the spring & summer clothes/sunlight/green leaves. The plants are starting to bloom and it is wonderful, I didn't realize how depressing the brown/dead trees could be? 
Anyway, I've been wearing this outfit a bunch to work because I love the sweater (yes, it is the sister to this one). I couldn't find it on ShopStyle, although there are similar options below, but it is still on the A&F website. What do y'all think? - xoxo darling, Hayden
A huge thank you to Halie Bassett for taking the photos at the Fleming Mansion in Platt Park.

The Best Friend Anniversary Trip

So Hannah came to visit me this past weekend to celebrate our four year friendship anniversary. Yeah, can you believe we've been friends for that long (maybe one of the first photos we took together?). We try to always celebrate the weekend of Easter because that is when we think the best friendship started. We had been hanging out throughout that spring semester of freshman year but our first real one-on-one was Easter brunch so that is our official friendiversary. This year was no exception, Hannah flew out Thursday night and we spent the weekend eating way too many desserts and going on hikes. Below are some of the photos and tomorrow there will be an official vlog - xoxo darling, Hayden.
Since the first time H came to Florida,
cotton candy has been our thing.
Ice cream at Frozen Matter Thursday night.
We stan a good brunch — probs because our first few friend dates were brunch—
 so I took her to Chautaqua's dining hall. 
Lil hike at the Flatirons.
Stop-in at a local Boulder bookstore.
Celebrating spring! 
Dushanbe Tea House, where Hannah tried chai for the first time & liked it!!
Took a drive through El Dorado Canyon.
H loves a good food hall so we did Friday night dinner at Milk Market. 
And it wouldn't be us if we didn't consume ice cream every day we are together.
Drinks before the Armchair Expert podcast.
Dax Shepard was as hilarious as ever.
54Thirty, where neither of us fit in but she took this cute photo of me.
One of the best breakfast burritos I've ever consumed at B&B in Castle Rock.
Paint Mines was an Instagram shoot waiting to happen.
Sweet Cooie's because we needed more ice cream.
Yes, that is a pop tart ice cream sandwich...
