Spring Outfit Post #1

So it took a good couple of months for Spring to arrive (in the frozen tundra of Minnesota), but now that it’s here I’ll dust off my computer and do a couple of outfit posts. The post today will be #1 in a mini series, as I have some catching up to do! It’s safe to say I’ve been MIA the past 6 weeks or so, but all for good reason, I assure you.

This first outfit was one I put together (kind of recently) when I decided to break a long couple weeks of not going out (by going out, of course). I love metallics and polka dots almost too much, I think.

cardigan: H&M. slim jeans, hoop earrings, and metallic belt: White House/Black Market. polka-dot top: Aqua (at Macy’s). Olive boots: Via Spiga

I am a huge dork. 

I missed this blog. I should get better about posting.

That’s all for now…more clothes later.

Trip to Colorado: Outfits

This past week my sister and I went on a 3-day road trip from Minneapolis to Colorado. It was beautiful, really last-minute, and way fun. We made stops in Denver, Vail, Glenwood Springs, and Grand Junction. I just wish we had been there longer so we could have had time to go snowboarding!

Here are a few of my outfits from my snowy trip to the mountains.

Holidays, Parties, Shoes- oh my!

I missed you guys! Its has been WAY too long. I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year’s. I know I did. One of my favorite Christmas gifts was Vogue: The Editor’s Eye, which celebrates the wonderful and brilliant fashion editors that have been a part of the magazine’s heart and soul for the past 120 years! I can’t wait to read it.

I even got to celebrate my birthday in between Christmas and New Year’s. I celebrated my birthday on the 26th (the actual day) and going out with friends two days later as well. My family and I saw Les Miserables as part of my bday celebration. It was wonderful and very intense! Musical lovers must see. (I am one so it was a must-see for me). On the 28th, I went to Hell’s Kitchen, followed by SEVEN and the Pour House with some great friends. It was definitely a fun time, and also very cold (I promised my friends next year I’ll celebrate in the summer!) At Hell’s Kitchen the food is very handcrafted (even the ketchup is made in-house!) and the menu well thought out and tasty-without being stuffy. The cocktails are fun too, and nothing is over-priced. Cool atmosphere with live music too! I do recommend to my Twin Cities readers! Following are a couple birthday photos.

My gold-heeled ankle-strap shoes. 🙂 Ignore the unattractive carpeting.

My friend Rachel and I on the rooftop at SEVEN. Fireplaces and Christmas trees and everything…I loved it! Rooftop patio in the dead of the Minnesota winter!

I am now 23, one year older. I can stop now- at anytime! Growing older, that is.  This birthday was rather interesting because I got to make some goals for my 23rd year of life that I’m rather excited to accomplish! A few days later, I moved. That was crazy. Then was New Year’s Eve, which of course was crazy and also fun. Me and a few friends went to a Moroccan-themed party in downtown Minneapolis.

Me and my friends on NYE @ EPIC Minneapolis (i’m second from right)

I will be honest- I work at White House Black Market- and because of my associate discount- I end up getting a lot of clothes from there. BOTH of my outfits in these picture are entirely WHBM. Except for my NYE necklace and shoes. (Anthropologie, NineWest) But you can’t really see them in the photo. It’s what happens when you’ve worked at a clothing store for 2 years!

So-after the last really crazy 2 weeks (not to mention working a lot), I finally feel as though I have time to breathe! And pay attention to my blog again. I will leave you with my favorite shoes of late- ankle strap beauties!
