The 411: Michael’s Cozy Fall Vibe

It’s always sad to say goodbye to the warm weather, but it’s time to gear up for my favorite season: fall. I love the crisp air, the crunch of leaves when I take my walks through the park with Enzo, football (of course), and the smell of home fires burning. Here’s my list of the things helping get me in a warm-and-cozy state of mind this month:

Ugg Scuff Slippers: Me, my dog, and these crazy comfortable Ugg slippers are my MUSTS for when I find time in my hectic schedule to just sit back and relax! Perfect for Sunday or Monday night Football.

Peter Millar Zip Cardigan: I recently wore a sweater like this one on the set of GMA Day, and it was so comfortable and sharp that I wanted to get one in every color. With a full-zip, the sweater looks great whether you’re wearing a t-shirt or a button-down.

Grit: The Power of Passion and PerseveranceThis New York Times bestseller by Angela Duckworth is already on my nightstand for when I have a quiet moment to read. It’s all about how it takes a special mix of passion and perseverance in a person to reach your dreams.

Johnnie Walker Scotch WhiskyNothing says “fall” like a whisky cocktail, and Johnnie Walker is one of my favorites. As soon as the weather turns, and at the end of a long day, I enjoy one of the bartender’s classics: a Whisky Sour, an Old-Fashioned, and when I need some extra TLC, a Hot Toddy.

Larry FirepitSome of my favorite nights with friends have been last-minute gatherings with take-out and cold beer around the fire pit. This little gem from Guideboat gives off nice heat and looks great, too.
