Fashion Friday: Fall Outfit Ideas

Fashion Friday 2.0 brings back a popular TIO fashion blog, first featuring Kristin Holbrook of Two Skirts, now brought to you by Erin Busbee and sponsored by Kristin and Two Skirts.

What goes around…

This week Erin’s focus is, well, right now. The fashion maven offers a few fall fashion ideas.

In the VIDEO above, I put together a small lookbook with some outfit options. It’s a real mix. Everything from jeans and a moto jacket, to a long dramatic, duster blazer!

For my fashion drama queens… or as I always say, for those who like drama (with their clothes)… I give you the NBD duster blazer. Wear it over something simple like skinny jeans and a tee and let the blazer standout.


Most of their wearable and fashion forward pieces also come in plus size. Among my two favorites pieces are the red bag worn with the python guitar strap and mules.


When you are tired of black and gray, black and gray, black and gray… lighten up with ALL WHITE.

You can wear white ANY time of year now, not just in the summer. Try layering textures and tones for a rich winter white look.

White Boots:

You can also swap out the beige booties, for WHITE boots. Unsure how to wear the hot fashion trend?  you  Check out my post here for ideas.



One of my go-to layering combinations at the moment, wearing a quilted vest, UNDER my leather moto jacket. It makes the moto MUCH warmer and I love how sleek and sporty they look together.
Flat top shades to add another sporty touch. I featured waterproof black booties with this look.


Now that I live in the bona fide cold climate of Telluride, Colorado, so I need to up my winter coat game. This plaid coat is not only cozy, warm and chic….it’s also long, so it will really keep my whole body warm even against whipping wind.

I suggest wearing this statement coat with solid neutrals like blacks, grays or burgundies.

More about Two Skirts:

Kristin Holbrook & Joanne Brown, co-owners, Two Skirts.

Two Skirts is a high-end women’s boutique with two locations: Telluride, Colorado and San Francisco, California. The store carries apparel, accessories, make-up, shoes, and jewelry.

It is fair to say that the history of Two Skirts began down the road a piece: Kristin followed the man who became her husband, (Kevin), who followed his ski school client, Joanne Brown, from Vail to Telluride.

“Kevin decided Telluride was going to be the next great place, so he moved to town in 1998. I followed in 1999 with a desire to open a business for two reasons: 1) I wanted to have something of my own to keep me in this remote town since I knew my husband would never leave; and 2), the timing seemed right to become an entrepreneur in Telluride,” explained Kristin.

Kristin approached Joanne about partnering in a women’s boutique.

The concept for Two Skirts was born in 2000.
