Five Loves…

love1

 

I love this look for a cool summer night.  But let’s be real, when am I not loving denim?!! It gets me every time.

love2

 

Donut holes.  Oh how I love when these sweet little balls of joy hit my lips.  They have always been a weakness of mine, ever since I was a little girl.

love3

 

I love this sweater so much and feel like I need on just like this to get me through the fall and winter.  It would be perfect to to cuddle up in.

love4

 

I have been obsessing over cucumber salads as of late.  I have seriously been eating some sort of cucumber salad it feels like every day – but they are so good.  I think it may be all the fresh locally grown cucumbers I have been getting as of late, but they a fun base from the normal greens for a salad.

love5

 

I love this whole outfit.  I especially love the pop of color with the scarf – it has me excited to be wearing scarves again soon.

Do you cook more in the summer with fresh produce?  What is your favorite summer dish?

Much love,

B

 

It’s a Date Night…

date1

One of the most fun things I have been enjoying as of late is getting to have date nights with the bou and another couple that one of us is friends with (though, let’s be honest – he has been a way big sport and goes on double dates with my friends far more than we do with his friends).  It is fun to get to hang out with friends like this – plus, it is another fabulous excuse to get a little dolled up for a week night and take a stroll out on the town.  Minneapolis certainly has a growing foodie world and I love every excuse to explore it more and more, so why not bring along some friends to indulge in the fun with.  Tonight we will be heading to Marvel and The Bachelor Farmer with two of my best friends from college who happened to fall in love and get married.  Eep!  Now, I just need to pick out the perfect look…

What do you do for date nights (with your bou or the girlies)?  Do you use it as an excuse to get dolled up?

Much love,

It’s 7am Somewhere…

coffee

 

Ever have those weeks where sleep just does not seem to be the priority?  Yea, it has been a crazy week – but really for good reasons all around.  However, that comes at a sacrifice and thus I will keep drinking my coffee this afternoon!

What keeos you awake in the afternoons?

Much love,

B

So true.  I am always for the product that gives back over the designer bag – but maybe that’s just me.  Though, I am learning it is not only me and that is a refreshing and hopeful thought for our world.

love2

 

Seriously, every time I see this skirt I want it that much more.  Damn.  So cute.

love3

 

How can you go wrong with red?  Especially when everything else is kept natural?!  Oh yea, you can’t because it is simply stunning.

love4

 

Playing with patterns.  I love it so much.  So inspiring.  And, look at those teal heels – in love.

love5

 

A refreshing cocktail for a Friday afternoon.  Nothing I love more at the end of a long week.

Are you a happy hour goer?  What is your favorite beverage for summertime on the patios?

Much love,

B

There is something about this photo I love.  I also love this blouse.  It is classy, but still fun, which is what I am all about for office looks.

love2

 

Deep dish.  Whole wheat.  Vegan chocolate chip cookie with sea salt.  All in one.  Can we say yum?!!  The fact that it is in a heart shape is the cherry on top for me.

love3

 

There is something about this whole look that I absolutely adore.  It just works and I love it.

love4

 

I love these shoes – they are so hott!  I have been having a love affair with heels as of late, simply cannot get enough.

love5

 

I am a firm believer that a girl can never have too many bags.  There are so many pretty options that each one needs to be enjoyed.  I love this clutch and makes me think I could do a clutch for the day, which is hard for a lady who typically is a big purse gal.

How often do you change your purse up?  Can you do a small purse or clutch?  How do you make it work?

Much love,

B

Let the natural curls fly – love that feeling.  Especially in humidity.

love2

 

Fresh farmer’s market blueberries in vanilla Silk milk – my favorite summertime treat.

love3

 

How cute is this elephant smock dress?!!  I totally need it.

love4

 

I love everything about this look.  The backdrop is pretty amazing, too.

love5

 

Adore.  May I please have all of this in my closet?!!  So fabulous.

What are you loving on this official first day of summer??

Much love,

The perfect spring and summer hat.  I have been on the hunt for one very similar to this – and by on the hunt, I really mean looking at pictures since I have not really made time to go shopping.  I should do something about that.

love2

 

It is almost blueberry season.  That basically means when I get anything in blueberry flavor that I can – it just tastes so good.  I love the rich color of blueish-purple that has the perfect amount of sweetness and bitterness that kiss perfectly.

love3

 

How fun and beautiful are these long maxis?!  They scream spring easing into summer and needing to head to a music festival or stroll around the lakes…or maybe that last part is just my six-month cooped-up self is feeling – either way, I want one of these lovely dresses.

love4

 

These shoes are amazing.  Paired with the super cute pink pants.  Hello spring, I love you and have missed you so is what this stunning combo is saying and I would like to second it – all of it.

love5

 

I love every aspect of Samantha Hutchinson’s whole look here, but especially those pants.  May I please find a pair for my own and then pair them with a blazer and say it is okay for the office?!!  I totally think I could make that work…and if not, who cares?!  They are hot and would be perfect for an evening or weekend look .  Purchase justified?!  I think so.

Are you getting spring fever?  Is it spring for you yet?  Does spring fever ever translate into your closet getting a little face lift??  What is on the top of your spring shopping list?

Much love,

B

The perfect look for easing into spring.  Baring the legs with a cozy sweater to keep you warm – love it.  And that clutch finishes the look off perfectly.

love2

 

A little DIY project.  I love these painted feathers to stick in my hair or in a hat – how lovely.

love4

 

Love this look – perfect for a Minnesota spring Saturday.

love3

 

Little sweet treats.  With chia seeds.  Vegan.  And gluten free.  Now, that is divine if you ask me.  My days as a vegan is bringing out a domestic goddess in me that I had forgotten was even there.

love5

 

Love this whole look.  Can I please get dressed up like this – I mean the necklace alone is enough to have me swooning.  And loving the tattoo down her back – I have been itching to get a new tattoo real bad.

What are you loving and craving these days?

Much love,

B

Time to get away are write, oh how I have been longing for more of that sweet haven.  My mind has been racing with thoughts recently to write and process about, now to find – I mean make, the time.

love2

 

I love hats.  I am especially loving this wider brim hat, so much that I am thinking that I need to get one to add to my hat collection.

love3

 

This is the perfect combination of chic and cozy for a bitter cold winter day – which I am knowing far too well these days.

love4

 

Cuddled up in a stunning coat – best way to be on these cold days.  It has been so cold this week that my jacket has actually been part of my daily outfits.

love5

 

This looks like my kind of restaurant, in fact it actually reminds me of a few of my favorite little places around town here in Minneapolis.  Maybe I need to make a point to bundle up and head there this weekend.

How are you staying warm these days?  What are your favorite winter pieces?

Much love,

B

Dinner Tonight…

This is totally okay, right?!!  I mean running to the grocery store just has not been a priority lately…maybe I should get around to that this weekend…

Do you sometimes forget to make time for the necessities? 

Much love,
