#HashtagAllDayLong…

I laughed so hard when I saw this because I am crazy about hashtags and use them every where, especially on Facebook long before they worked.  I also love how pretentious this guy is – total hipster.  Love it.

#HappyFriday lovies!  Doing anything fun to make you a #happygirl?!!

Five Loves…

I LOVE live music.  I LOVE The Mowgli’s.  And when you put those two together and then mix in getting pulled up on stage to sing Time with them, you get one extremely happy girl.  And I got to share the moment with my bestie.  It was pretty fabulous.  The Mowgli’s are amazing musicians, but even more they are beautiful souls that promote peace and love – true hippies that I totally share a heart with.  It is such a beautiful thing that they are doing as they share their gift with others.  Go see them if you get a chance.  You will NOT regret it.  #BeAMowgli #IAmAMowgli

I keep seeing this style of shoe everywhere and they are so stinkin cute!  I totally need a pair.

Ice cream in the summer is delicious, especially when from Pumphouse Creamery.  My absolute favorite in Minneapolis.  I got to share it with my new special friend last weekend and I think that made me love it that much more.

How fabulous is this dress?!!  For a hot humid day – yes, please I was a simple flowy, lightweight little black dress.  Adore.

I finally got a new bike with the help of a good friend.  It is teal – pretty much perfect for me since that seems to be my color of the moment.  I love it.  And even more, I love that this picture is taken in what is right out my front door – I am so blessed to get to live in an amazing city that also has nature all over.  I love the lakes.  Couldn’t live without them.

What are some of your favorite little delights this week?

Much love,

Overly Delighted…

Hello overalls, nice of you to circle back from the early 1990’s.  It is great to see you again.  All over even – and I cannot get over how cute they are looking as different people’s styles shine through.  I love that there are so many different styles of overalls, full pant, short, worn with holes and so on…and even better they can be a casual look or if styled correctly, even look dressed up.  Who knew?!  Pair a dark wash skinny jean overall with a sexy little black top under and some heels and I would say you are ready for a hot date on a summer night.  I keep falling in love with so many pairs, my problem is that I need to decide which pair I actually want to add to my closet…

Could you see yourself wearing overalls?  Where?  How would you style them – up or down?

Fool of Me…

I think there is something about alittle electronic sound and female voices that I am extremely addictied to as of late.  I mean it seems every other week I am sharing another one.  This week I am loving this duo, who are twins I might add, Say Lou Lou.  They are from Sweden, but split their time between Australia and Sweden.  This song, Fool of Me, is so good – and loving what Chet Faker brings to the song as the featured artist.  The melodic lines draw you in with the rain drizzled verses and the muted sound helps you to feel the emotion with them.  I love when a song can draw out an emotion in me that is completely opposite of the way I am feeling – always a crazy experience.  Their SoundCloud has a lot of their stuff and you can listen to their whole EP, Jullian – so go check these pretty ladies out.

Does music ever stir up emotion in you that makes no sense given your current circumstances?

Much love,

My Obsession {Teal & Gold}…

tg1

 

Do you ever get a crush on a color?  Like every time you see it you are drawn in?  I totally get those – and when they hit, they hit hard.  As of late I cannot get enough of teal, especially when paired with gold.  Seriously – it makes me swoon.  I used to never want to wear color and now I find my closet of black getting so many pops of teal added to the collection.

What is your current color obsession?  Do you crush on colors easily?

Street Chic…

Inspiration comes from all over.  Especially when walking down the streets of the city.  Each person can be a source of inspiration – that is street chic at its finest.   A good street chic look can play with layers and also make ten minutes to get ready in the morning look like you spent all sorts of time and did it with complete ease.  If I had a choice, I would live in these looks daily, but that isn’t always the best look for the office. However, I do think there is a way to bring some street chic to your office style.

Cool Shades of Summer…

cool1

 

This has been one of the weirdest years for weather, at least here in Minneapolis.  It has been cool and with that I have found myself drawn to cooler shades this summer rather than my usual summer warm shades.  I seriously cannot get enough of blue, chambray, teal, and more.  These are my cool shades of summer.  Cool shades work in summer when paired with whites.  The material also makes a huge difference, so the cool shade does not have to look so dark and heavy.  Here are a few of my favorite cool shades of summer that I found and was inspired by over at Anthropologie
