Baseball Hat: Two Ways!

So my girl Kacie and I decided to have a go at styling baseball hats. What do you think?! We rocked ’em right? Kacie is one of the very sweetest bloggers I know. We “met” probably at least a year or two ago and have kept up ever since. She has this fab urban glam style with lots of pops of color. You’ll absolutely love it! Check out Kacie’s blog and follow along, you will be so glad you did!

Spoiler alert: Baseball hats are HUGE right now. So get on the bandwagon before it rides off into the sunset without you. I am particularly fond of the ones with a heritage-esque vibe or a ridiculously awesome print (like the plaid one below from Nec & Proper!). As a bit of a more preppy/proper dresser overall, I found baseball hats to be a bit of a challenge. However, while integrating this fun new trend, I kept it me by infusing some serious nautical vibes with my KJP anchor bracelet, Sperry’s, and a structured navy bag.

I’m sporting my alma mater here, the Minnesota Golden Gophers. This old hat got me through many a disheartening loss and a few wins too! Gopher sports don’t have a glorious recent history, but I’ve got school spirit nonetheless. I know all my cheering’s going to pay off sometime and this eternal optimist is fairly certain next year’s going to be off-the-charts awesome. Just like the baseball hat trend.

A Crush on Blush


Blush is definitely a color of the moment. I find it very timely with Valentine’s Day soon-approaching. It’s feminine, soft, and a little bit whimsical. I paired it with light-toned neutrals to continue with the romantic vibe. I’ve had my eye on this coat forever, but forgot about it over the holidays. After all the big sales and everything it came to mind again, but I thought for sure there would be none left. Thankfully, my J.Crew was able to find one left in the whole country in my size. It’s the small victories, right?






Also, can I tell you what I’ve been craving lately? I’ve got a serious hankering for tiptoeing out to the dock at my family’s cabin, when everyone’s asleep. Then dipping my bare feet in the water, leaning back, and staring out at the lake. On a clear night, there would be a blanket of stars, with hardly a square inch untouched by one. The air would be warm, I’d have my hood up and be all wrapped up in my high school sweatshirt. I always felt like I could stay there forever. We don’t get a whole lot of starry nights or docks to enjoy them on in the city, but this memory is so strong, it feels like I’m there again sometimes.

Casual with a Chance of Leopards

Can I tell you something that I think is an absolute must for the winter months post-holiday season? Fresh flowers. Last week it was purple tulips. This week it’s the most whimsical bunch of baby’s breath.  It’s like a bit of chocolate at 2:00pm, a little taste of spring to tide me over til it actually arrives. 
So… notice anything different? I got a haircut! And a highlight refresh. Friends in the area, if you are looking for a hair stylist, I could not recommend Rachel at Vizi Spa more highly. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she is just a delight to talk to.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It’s always sad to see it go in exchange for Monday, with it’s alarm clocks and to-do-lists. But let’s make the best of it, eh?!
Thanks for reading! You really are the best.

Winter Layers

We’re at that point in the year where I don’t even ask Patrick to take photos outside because it’s just too darn cold most of the time. So we opted to take these at the River Center in St. Anthony Main. This is a favorite winter ensemble. The little leopard gloves have quickly become a go-to pair for winter days. The only thing is that I wear the left one a lot more than the right. I’m often gloved on only one hand, because I need that right hand ready to be able to phonnnne. I know you’re feelin me. 
By the way, you know that WWDMagic contest I told you about a couple days ago? The one where 8 bloggers win a trip to Las Vegas to cover the conference? I would so LOVE to get your vote. Feeling super generous? You can vote every day! Top on your to-do list, I know. But truly, support one of your favs purdy please! Here ya go: vote away! My thanks to you foreverrrr!

Playful in Pink





I don’t know what it is about these pink Hunters that gets me all jumpy, I mean I literally leap every time I wear them. Puddles or not! Proof exists in this post & this one. It’s like Space Jam up in here. Or is that one with the bouncy shoes Flubber? I’m getting my 90’s children’s movies all mixed up. Well here is hoping this post brings a bit of color to your Wednesday!





Also, I entered a contest to blog for WWDMagic. Turns out I’m a finalist! Would you do me the honor of giving me your vote? Here’s a link to my entry. Thank you!
