Autumnal Basic.

Erik Engstrom

Let's just say it how it is. The date is September 14, 2016. Labor Day Weekend has come and gone. The days of laying out at the lake are done with. Rooftop season seems to slowly be winding down.

As far as I am concerned, we can just forget about this half-attempt at summer and just go straight into a full-fledge fall. I am talking about going full-on basic. Oversized chunky sweaters. Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. Long walks through the woods, the sound of leaves crunching beneath your feet. Apple picking. This is what I want. This is who I want to be - an autumnal basic.

This past weekend I drove up to Minnesota to visit Erik for a few days. The weather was perfect. Cloudy and overcast one day (the photographer in me was jumping for joy) and then sunny and reasonably warm the next. As far as fashion goes, I am a sucker for fall fashion. Give me all of it. The layers. The denim. I want it all. I want it all. And I want it now.
