It may not feel like it outside, but in my mind it’s still Fall. To keep from getting sick, I actually still dress based on the calendar season. It’s better to be a little warmer, than too cool and catchin’ a cold. While 80 degree temps in November are definitely unexpected, what you can expect is the opportunity to layer and prepare for when the temp drops in the evening. Fall classics like a good denim jacket are perfect for transitional wear from day to evening. I typically do a street style shoot for the blog, but decided to step in and grab some clean studio shots with Kayla Madonna and PRPS Jeans for this story. PRPS is best know for its denim, but you really gotta show some respect to their outwear and tops in this season’s collection…

Long sleeves are also key when the weather can’t make its mind up, ’cause you rock the sleeves up or down based on the temp or your activity. They’re also great for layering. I paired this brown distressed Henley with some cargos, both by PRPS Jeans.

Cargos have enough pockets for everything important + extra for everything else less important. I actually use the pockets. At times we neglect the functional aspects of how a garment was intended by overly focusing on fashion. I try to balance function with fashion.

Because Fall needs a good foundation, I rocked some good brown boots by JD Fisk. Picked them up last year and they became one of my key wears. This time, I swapped out the classic brown laces with the ones from my Timbs’ to complement the top more. It actually turned out to be a good clutch switch on my way out.

Key tip: Your personal style is an expression, but expressions are best translated within the proper context. You can be yourself while still dressing for the environment you’re in. Keep your season and destination in mind.

The football was just around in the studio so I figured I’d pay homage to my OMHS days!
