Bells are Ringing…

That’s right, loves.  The wedding bells are ringing.  Again.  It’s been a couple weeks though since the last time.  I am excited for today’s wedding – it is a sweet friend who I have known for years now.  We did college together, are Thetas together and sister’s in Christ – so I am thrilled to get to see her marry the love of her life.  So, I am off – it is an early wedding!

What are you up to?  Any weddings for you today?

Much love,

Five Loves…

With all the wet cold spring weather, all I can think about is getting a cute pair of Hunter rain boots to go with my new Bendel umbrella.  I adore them.  I am thinking red, to match my red handle.

With the rain comes fresh flowers.  I loved walking down the streets of NYC and seeing all the beautiful fresh flowers – spring is here, my loves.

Sometimes the Olsen’s just get it right.  This is one of those moments.  Love.

Simple.  Sheer.  Sparkly.  Three “s” you put together to spell stunning in my book.

With spring in full swing, it is time to bust out the bike and start enjoying the streets in more freedom.  Sadly, my bike was stolen, so first I need to get a new bike and then I can get back to enjoying – which is greatly enjoying in Minneapolis, as we are the number one biking city.

What are you loving as spring is in full swing?

Much love,

Tales of Simplicity…

With all the hustle and bustle of NYC, there is still a simplicity that is often found in the city.  The lady in a simple silhouette radiates chicness.  Simple.  Yet still, simply stunning. I love taking a classic pair of my favorite jeans and pairing a simple t-shirt and throwing a blazer over.  A very easy go-to look, that is still put together and has you running out the door looking fabulous for a day of running around town.  There are so many tales of where you will go in this fabulous look…

What is your go-to outfit when you need something that is chic and still get you out the door fast?

Much love,

Lay Your Cards Out…

I love indie music, especailly when it comes from the local scene.  Minneapolis is known for having a great local music scene and Polica is a clear reason why.  However, they are by no means just on the local scene now – they have blown up and are on a full blown national tour.  I love this fabulous quartet and have been playing Lay Your Cards Out on repeat as of late.

Do you have any favorite local music acts where you are from?  Please do share!

Much love,

Let it Rain…

Spring is in full affect.  Translation – rain is pouring down.  I actaully really love rain from time to time.  The smell.  The way it leaves everything looking clean and fresh.  Seriously, my yard was brown and now is looking rather green.  The part that does not love the rain – my hair.  So, what is a girl to do?!  A good umbrella always helps – and it adds a fun accessory to your look.  I love umbrellas – you can go with a more classic look, or hey why not have a little fun and play with a crazy pattern.  While I was in NYC I was on the hunt for a new one – Bendel’s was my first stop, because after all, I am a Bendel’s girl.  Those classic brown and white strips get me every time.

What is your umbrella style?  Are you a lover of the rain?  What is your favorite rainy day activity to do?

Much love,

NYC Street Style…

People watching is always fun, interesting and sometimes, inspirational.  All three are very true when it comes to walking the streets of NYC.  I love how it is a melting pots of culture, which gives you and array of styles to observe and draw inspiration from.  Here are some of my favorites…

Do you draw inspiration from street style?  Do you have a favorite city for style inspiration?

Crops Trending…

With spring in full swing trends are surfacing for this year.  One that seems to be everywhere is the crop top – and not just for the grunge look this year.  There are chic ladies taking on this trend in a classy subtle way, with just a little skin peeking through.  If you are a fan of the flowy crop tops, but do not love baring your skin for all to see, throwing a cami underneath is always a great alternative to allow you to enjoy the trend.

Are you yay or nay on this crop trop trend?  How would you style the trend?

Much love,
