With crunchy leaves on the ground and cooling weather spreading across the country, it’s not hard to notice that we’re deep into the Autumn season. The Windy City can experience extremes of every season so we asked Chicago-based lifestyle writer Kyle Hocking to share a few looks perfect for this time of year.
LOOK ONE: Autumn Beach Walks
Hands down my favorite part of fall are the boots. You can never have too much. Black and brown is one of my favorite color combos and these brown leather Mark Nason Barnsley boots pair perfectly with these black fitted chinos. The only struggle I ever have with boots is getting them off. Even more so after a long commute home in the city on a freezing night. These boots have a side zipper, ideal for easy take-off. Plus – they go with everything.
LOOK TWO: Saturday Morning Workouts
There is nothing I like more than a simple workout shoe or sneaker. Something that goes with everything. Every color, pattern and style. The Skechers Burst – Second Wind sneaker does just that. No matter what outfit I have on – they can always be the go to shoe for early morning walks, jogs and gym routines in the crisp autumn air. They also may be the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn.
