THE WELCOMED CHANGE:
Hot weather has overstayed its welcome and I couldn’t be more excited that Fall is here. Fold and put away the short-sleeve polos and tees then wipe down the drivers and sport sandals for warmer days. The time is now to reach into the depths of your closet, pull down the flannels, Oxford-cloth button downs and the jumper.
THE WHEN-YOU-NEED-IT BOOT:
I’m certainly not a daily, avid hiker but with an amazing set of trails in my backyard (South Mountain Reservation), an annual mountain vacation to Lake Placid, and the occassional snow-removal duty in the driveway, I need an easy hiker boot to help guide Kid A and company through it all.
THE (HOUSE OF) STYLE:
Many moons ago in StL, I loved watching MTV’s House of Style. While other 13-year-olds were obsessed with SportsCenter and glued to their Nintendo, I was drooling over Amber Valletta and absorbing all the fashion advice she and her fellow supermodels could give this then teenager. To me, it was the perfect show – a great balance of chic and service.
With the first day of summer behind us, it’s impossible to escape the hot and humid air. I log a lot of miles in my daily uniform, so it’s essential that each piece is curated carefully, including the ones that keep me moving comfortably — my sneakers.
