CJLA Girls Stories: Autumn Will
- by Lauren Burchill
Hi CJLA! We're excited to share another CJLA Girls Story with you today! We had the pleasure of chatting with CJLA Girl Autumn Will and we got to learn more about her life, her capsule and her capsule. We hope you enjoy her interview!
CJLA: Tell us about yourself!
AUTUMN: Hi! My name is Autumn and I hail from the great Pacific Northwest in Washington state. I am an Air Force wife, avid Instagrammer and photographer. I am currently a stay at home mom to my 2.5 year old son and work from home creating marketing content for companies. I am also a published landscape photographer. I used to live on the Oregon Coast in Cannon Beach where I first found my inspiration to pursue photography. I'll always say yes to a road trip, houseplant and a good nap. I love all genres of music from Billie Holiday to Bhangra. You will most likely find me playing with my son, taking photos or making connections on Instagram. You can find me at @changingseason.
CJLA: How did you find CJLA?
AUTUMN: I first heard about CJLA from a family member last year. The timing was perfect since I was just learning about building a capsule wardrobe and making changes in the way I thought about styling and buying.
CJLA: CJLA is more than clothes, it's a community! Why do you love being a member of the CJLA community?
AUTUMN: CJLA was the first real step I took in buying clothing online. The quality and customer service won me over and now 90% of my wardrobe is CJLA! The community is genuine and built on transparency. I love watching different body sizes represented in stories and finding new accounts to follow. The #cjlagirls hashtag has landed me so many new friends! I love geeking out with them over our shared love of all things CJLA.
CJLA: What are your three all-time favorite CJLA capsule pieces?
AUTUMN: Hands down my Dannys. I own 2 pairs because I wear them at least 3 times a week. Gotta rotate! I love my Hunter Denim Jacket! It's just the right amount of oversized to layer while still remaining so trendy and versatile. It's butter soft! The vintage CJLA boyfriend tees are my everyday favorites. They are edgy and easy. Most of the time I'll just wear them to bed! And they pair well with my Hunter and River jackets. So soft and classic.
CJLA: Why does the capsule concept work for you and your lifestyle?
AUTUMN: I'm a simple no frills kinda girls. The capsule wardrobe is what I've been searching for my whole life! I never liked rummaging through my drawers trying on a million different outfits to find one that works. Now I only have capsules pieces and can literally grab and go. Some days I look down at my outfit and marvel how it all just went together so effortlessly. And I wasn't even trying! It's so easy to get those trendy put together looks with CJLA. I'm hooked.
CJLA: How has having a capsule wardrobe helped to simplify your life?
AUTUMN: I don't stress about clothes like I used to. I literally love every piece I have in my capsule! My only problem is I have WAY too many pieces. But is that really a problem?! And thanks to CJLA I don't have to guess on what my style is. All of their pieces go together so there is no stressing.
CJLA: If you had to describe CJLA to a friend using only three words what would they be?
AUTUMN: Capsule, Quality, Customer Service!
CJLA: What is your favorite CJLA piece to style?
AUTUMN: I'd say right now the River Jacket. I'm so in love with it-- like it was designed just for me! You can wear it a million ways!
