Well, I didn't have anything mind to write until about two hours ago when I was sitting on the patio at The Local with my sister, and now I have to tell the world that I spotted Mo Rocca walking down the street! I am a huge NPR nerd and laugh incessantly at his show on The Cooking Channel, so I leapt out of my chair and stopped him to say hello. He was the kindest of gents and let me snap a photo, which I can't stop smirking at! It was so surreal to see someone I admire so much walking down the street in my city like I do every day.
Oh, what? My clothes? All neutrals with a bright red lip while I perused the Thursday farmer's market. But you guys. I met Mo Rocca. !!!

Boyfriend jeans, boyfriend watch, boyfriend blazer. The definition of menswear can vary, but when a piece gives off that truly borrowed-from-the-boys look, its name gets a cute little reference to the man you may have borrowed it from. The general guideline for wearing boyfriend pieces is to keep the rest of your look sleek and feminine, but to me, piling all of them together makes for a perfect weekend look.
Edith Miller boyfriend tee, Madewell Transport tote, ASOS watch, Superga sneakers, Rag & Bone boyfriend shorts
As the weather grows warmer, I've been reaching for my boyfriend-style blazers and jeans more than usual. The loose fit is perfect for staying cool while still covering up in summer heat.

Chambray top c/o Lily and Violet, leather shorts c/o MINKPINK, Sam Edelman Petty ankle boots, Madewell Transport tote, necklace from Parc Boutique
Last night, I was able to attend a preview of the grand opening for the Lily and Violet boutique that's going on this weekend here in Minneapolis! I brought my friend Katie, and we had a lovely time shopping and chatting with the ladies in the store (and this girl!). It was a blast running around in shorts and a tank now that Minnesota's weather has finally met our springy expectations. Can't wait for the first beach day of the season tomorrow!

We finally hit 90 degrees yesterday here in Minneapolis, and we're looking at seventies and eighties for at least the next week! I'm so excited to break out all of my favorite shorts from last year, but that doesn't mean I don't have room in my closet for a few new pairs.
And maybe I already snagged that brown Madewell pair for myself, but I'm not done yet. Since printed pants have been such a big thing the past few months, it makes sense that the trend should transition into warmer weather. A polka-dot pair is high on my priority list.

I'm happy to introduce you all to the tote that dreams are made of. I bought this monogrammed beauty as a cognac alternative to my daily black work bag, but I'm having no trouble making it transition from workweek to weekend. And if you've ever wondered, this is my natural hair with zero styling! It's pretty straight with some wacky texture here and there, but with as much wind as we were having on Saturday, I refused to put any effort into it. It just ended up in my eyes and all over everywhere else.

After the longest winter maybe ever, we are finally seeing some sunshine and green grass in the Midwest. With one more breezy weekend to go, we are all looking forward to eighty-degree sunshine come Tuesday! Off to go sleepover at my sister's while her husband's out of town. Stoked for girls' weekend.
