last season

Madewell tee, Chaser sweater, Kut from the Kloth denim, Ash Footwear sneakers

Time never fails to amaze me. It's such a simple concept, but every year I'm surprised how quickly the leaves change. Just a couple weeks ago it looked like summer outside, and now all of the trees above are orange and brown and I couldn't love it any more than I do. This chunky Chaser kimono was the perfect added layer for a breezy day over a light tee and my favorite distressed denim.

moccasin monday

Vans Girls jacket, Gap tee, JustFab denim, Minnetonka Moccasin shoes, Cut 'n' Paste handbag, Parc Boutique hat

Is there anything better than a favorite pair of moccasins? My blogger crush/real life pal Shaynah and I partnered up with Minnetonka Moccasin to style one pair two ways, and we had a great time putting together looks for these navajo printed moccasins. You'd be surprised how many ways you can wear them! Initially, I wasn't sure how easy they would be to style, but their casual chicness and brown/black color mix make them an easy selection for any outfit. See more photos and our feature on the Minnetonka blog here could win these or any other pair of Minnetonkas you choose on their website by entering the giveaway below! One winner will be randomly selected October 21. Good luck!

casual (pajama) friday

 Sincerely Jules top, G-Star Raw denim, Lulus flats, Cut 'n' Paste handbag

Throwing it back to a couple weeks ago in September on a casual weekday. It's days like this (the stretchiest jeans and an oversized sweatshirt) that make me feel like I'm wearing pajamas to work. Plus, there's the whole mess of half-up bedhead.

army of pastels

 Design History sweater, Anthropologie pants, Superga sneakers, Wessley NYC handbag

As if you would pair light pink with anything but army green and black.

it's friday and thank goodness

 Bella Luxx button-up, H&M blazer, Madewell tote, Gap denim, Shoemint loafers, Lucky Brand bracelet

In case you don't live fifty percent of your life on social media like I do, here's some breaking news for you: Gilmore Girls is now available for instant streaming on Netflix and fall has officially arrived for most of the country (save for California and its heatwave of insanity). It's only (already?) the third and October is already shaping up to be a pretty busy month for me, climbing toward the capstone of October 25 for my four-year blogging anniversary. More on that closer to October 25. For now, go enjoy your Friday night. If you can say you've snagged any inspiration at all or even half of a smile from my something-like-business-casual outfit above or my elusive and loquacious ramblings, I've done my job.

oversized everything

Sweater + denim via SABI, Lulus shoes, Wessley NYC handbag

It's rare to find an online boutique that resonates so strongly with your personal style. Lucky for me, new online shop SABI does just that. With phrases like "style over fashion" and "quality over quantity" peppered throughout their mission statement, it's easy to see why I want almost every piece in their new arrivals. This cozy knit and mega-destroyed denim were an easy combination for Saturday brunch with Grace at a Northeast favorite, Aster CafeAlso, make sure to check out my little feature on Stripes & Peonies!

Winsome Goods pullover, Forever 21 romper (shorts), Zara boots, Mellow World handbag, Ray-Ban sunglasses

This weekend may have been our last of summer weather. I got to indulge in some pool and sundeck time and lots of iced coffee, so no complaints here. There are so many exciting things coming this fall for Zipped so it was nice to have a relaxing weekend before the madness! 

This Winsome Goods pullover was the perfect piece to keep off the evening chill. It's being released on Wednesday, so be sure to keep an eye on the site since a limited number of these gorgeous pieces were created right here in Minnesota. Make sure you check out their beautiful video lookbook, "Sere," as well!
