is this unbearable end-of-summer heat making anyone else super anxious about autumn?? we know we can’t wait for that fresh, crisp wind with hints of burning leaves + apple cider in the air! with all this day dreaming about fall weather also comes day dreaming about our dream autumn wardrobes…
i’m not one you would exactly call athletic but i am definitely outdoorsy especially in the fall time + if you haven’t noticed yet i am a little tomboy-ish in the clothing section. don’t get me wrong i love me a good dress but in all honesty i’ll take a good pair of denim any day! so with that in mind i’ve really had my eye on a nice, lightweight jacket paired with easy layers combined with elegant yet simplistic accessories. autumn really is my absolute favorite time of year, but much like spring, fall can be moody with chilly mornings / evenings + fairly warm afternoons so when out + about for the day layers are key! i’ve also learned over the years having a medium sized backpack or purse with you helps when needing to take off a layer… or two! also, let’s be real. who doesn’t love a good americana inspired hat?!
i’m an easy going guy who’s always on the move so when it comes to my wardrobe dark, clean layers are essential. whether i’m at work, in a meeting, hiking, out for coffee, or out for dinner with lara wearing pieces that transcend throughout the day can be key. like i said i’m a guy who is always on the go + tend to do a lot of outdoor activities so i find it helpful to have a handy bag on me. from my laptop, to a warmer layer, + even to some necessary hiking tools i carry a few different items on me throughout the day + my backpack is always there to help me keep organized. i’m not one to over think my closet but a good place to start with is some simple basics which for me typically includes a couple nice button ups + well fitted denim. not to mention every man should own a nice pocket knife!
happy (soon-to-be-autumn) monday, friends!
