A week and a half ago, I was lucky enough to go to Wyoming to experience Jackson Hole in October. I went to celebrate my cousin getting married and had an all around blast all weekend! I go to Jackson Hole every summer, every Christmas, some winter ski weekends, and some early Septembers (for my grandpa’s birthday) but I had never been to Jackson Hole in October before. My, what a treat! It was beautifully fall! If you’re planning a trip to Jackson Hole to experience brightly colored fall leaves and cool crisp temperatures, then I recommend going the last week of September or the first two weeks of October. Jackson Hole is pretty far north so it only takes one freeze for the leaves to all fall off. Here’s a little recap of my trip:
Jackson Hole was on fire with brightly colored yellow leaves! The views are honestly breathtaking. This particular view is from around the corner of my grandpa’s house. My Barbour jacket was the perfect weight for the weather. I definitely needed it in the mornings and nights but during the day I could take it off and just wear a sweater or a flannel. I wore my Clark’s desert boots every single day. If you follow me on Snapchat (@jilliana5590) then you saw quite a few shots of me in my Clark’s walking through fallen leaves.
I ate out a couple times this trip at Wild Sage for dinner, Nora’s Fish Creek Inn for breakfast, and Persephone for brunch. I highly recommend all three spots – all are so delicious and all are really cozy for fall weather. The above photo is from the pumpkin adorned entrance to Persephone where I had hot cocoa with a huge homemade vanilla marshmallow on top, a fried egg sweet potato hash skillet, and a side of crispy bacon. I’m wearing my desert boots (AGAIN) + a flannel (similar) and a fleece vest. I picked up my fleece vest in navy last year from J.Crew. Unfortunately, they don’t have it in navy again this year but they do have it in black, brown, and ivory. While in town, I also popped my head into my favorite Jackson Hole boutique, Terra, for a little shopping!
It was tricky to decide what to wear to my cousin’s wedding because I wanted to wear a dress but I wasn’t quite ready for tights and I wanted to fit in with the relaxed mountain vibe. I decided to wear a short but long-sleeved dress (similar, similar) and then layer it with a fur vest. I love the look of navy and black together too so I liked the way my outfit came together! My dress is from last year but it’s available this year in black and olive and my vest is ahhhh-mazing. I think it is a great price for rabbit fur but if you’re looking for an even better price then I recommend this faux fur vest. My sister, Sarah, totally pulled off the cute dressed up mountain look too with her plaid + skirt combo!
To say that I love Jackson Hole in October would be an understatement! I honestly don’t know why my family hasn’t been going in October all along. If you’re planning a trip to Jackson or ever have any questions about it please shoot me an email! I love that town and would be thrilled to help out! xx
