Whether it’s a big anniversary, a black-tie wedding, that once-a-year gala… elegant evenings out are some of the best things. Jewels in the crown of all-too-responsible-sometimes adulthood! Half the allure is all the lead-up. The anticipation. From getting the invitation in the mail, seal waxed. Choosing the perfect gown for the event then pairing it with the most fitting shoes, clutch, necklace. The week of, aligning beauty appointments so that for this one night we feel fresh and utterly feminine. Then if at all possible taking half the day getting ready. This is my favorite! Turning on the perfect music, setting the tone. Silk dressing gown all day until it’s finally time to slip into the gown that’s been freshly pressed, hanging in a garment bag in the closet front and center like a little tease. Zipping up, then taking a moment to sip champagne and maybe even relax for a little pre-party nap before trotting off to the event. Trust… I can hang in Calvin Klein loungewear all day most Saturdays and dart about town in sneakers and boyfriend jeans for meetings and projects all week, but there’s a little something special about nights like this.
After a coldspell in Minnie, we’re hittin 30-40 degrees and the city is all smiles and basically skipping down the street. Suddenly we’re talking about outdoor wintery activities like outings to Rice Park for ice-skating and downhill skiing at Afton and Lutsen. A break in our collective hibernation may be on the horizon and I’m all about it. Here’s to putting on real pants and getting out there into the world a bit!
Velvet is having a moment. It’s taking shape in fresh new forms like on backpacks and pleated skirts and bombers. Mix with other trends like platform sneakers and choker dresses for a chic city girl look.
I’m actually really excited to take my mind off of subzero Minnesota temps for today’s Swimwear Fashion Runway Show at Macy’sRidgedale today! I got a little preview last night of the beachy looks that star stylist Cindy Warner put together for the models and they are so soo cute & cool. One of my favorite 2017 trends is sport swim, Nike has a big line of really fun pieces to mix and match at Macy’s.
After the show, there will be a storewide shopping party with major one-day discounts in every department. I usually do a little bit of damage while I’m there because of those great sales! Pre-shopped yesterday and have a little Calvin Klein set of heather grey leggings and sports bra with this neoprene black hoodie all ready for purch today yay! Will definitely need to wear while my spray tan is still fresh haha.
People who go are always like so glad they did. It’s high energy, good music, a lot of great sips, bites, and giveaways. It’s real fun. Hope to see you there! If you’re out of state, you can follow along on the Snap and everything:
