Q: What are your top 3 fall must-haves this year?
A: Bombers, backpacks and boots. I’m sharing many favorite fall pieces in this roundup!
Q: How do you define a piece as a must-have?
A: To me, a must-have is an article of clothing or an accessory that fits my current mood and also recurs in my thoughts. If you’re browsing on Spring and see something, then keep thinking about it before it arrives you know it’s going to be a personal must-have. I have a lot of must-haves…but this season I’m really into the bomber and backpack trends. I’ve always been a shoe guy so boots are on my fall shopping list as well. I’m really into dressing up sneakers, too.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Experimental and tailored. I like to try new things and definitely pay close attention to fit.
Q: What is your favorite part of fall?
A: The brisk air as temperatures drop. Early October is the best weather. I love the morning when it’s starting to warm up, but there is a chill in the air. I also love switching from my standard iced coffee to ordering vanilla lattes.
