stripes on stripes

Gap tee and denim, Urban Outfitters cardigan, Madewell bag, H&M shoes

One of those Fridays where you throw on the first things you see in your closet and throw another braid into your hair because you forgot to shower the night before. Oh well. What else are weekends for?

colorblock corner

 Lee and Birch sweater, JustFab denim and bag, Seychelles boots

I played it cozy today in the softest cashmere-blend pullover, styling it with neutral tones across the board. It kept me just warm enough on the walk home through April snow showers, so I'm settling in tonight to watch the wintry mix come down and get a head start on my Easter chocolate intake. What else are Wednesdays for?

balanced checks

Lulu*s top, Gap denim, Modern Vice boots, Vince Camuto bag, Michael Kors watch

My favorite thing to pair with black is white, and my favorite thing to pair with white is black. That being said, I'm almost never without my favorite neutraldenimto break it up. I like to leave the bright colors up to people with louder personalities.

the back streets

H&M tank and sneakers, Madewell cardigan, Parc Boutique jacket, JustFab denim, Kate Spade Saturday bag

I picked up this jacket from a favorite neighborhood boutique in the dead of winter, so I'm happy to finally get some use out of it as we head into springier weather. This weekend will involve a lot of sleep and relaxation for this girl after a scatterbrained week in the office downtown. And probably a little retail therapy, if we're being honest.

local supply

Just now remembering to breathe after a full day out while my apartment was getting a facelift. I came home to brand new windows and I couldn't be happier! In the meantime, I spent all day in the office followed by an outdoor patio happy hour with some favorite coworkers to celebrate the first day of sunny, seventy-degree weather. After, I was able to stop by the preview party for Filson  + Shinola, two amazing brands coming to Minneapolis this spring!

Filson is headquartered in Seattle, Washington (my hometown) so the love feels natural to me. Shinola is based out of Detroit, Michigan, and I was immediately drawn to the leather card case and gorgeous wrap watch!

On display at The Bachelor Farmer's Wednesday event

I can't wait for these shops to call the North Loop home here in Minneapolis! Their pieces can only be described as beautiful, and American-made? They just keep getting better.

meetup with macailah

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to brunch with favorite local fashion blogger Macailah Maxwell! She writes Take A Lovely Look, is one of the sweetest girls I've ever met, and so mature you would never guess that she's still in high school. She asked me a few questions to go along with the photos on her blog, so if you wish to learn all my quirks, head on over and check it out here!

Thanks Angela for taking the photos!
