I love incorporating color and prints into my looks and never take myself too seriously. HOW DO YOU SWITCH UP YOUR LOOK FROM LATE SUMMER TO FALL In the late summer I am still wearing lighter fabrics, but transitioning into fall colors.

We all have our connections to people who we admire and it’s my own way of examining my own connections.”
