Noerenberg Gardens

 

Patrick and I ventured out to the Noerenberg Gardens at Lake Minnetonka on Saturday. It was a warm day and we brought a picnic lunch to enjoy on the lawn. Couldn’t have imagined a more perfect date. This Target dress was a clearance rack find last summer and every once in a while (especially on 80 degree days), it makes for a nice and easy little frock to slip into. I swooped my hair up into a quick topknot, threw on one of my favorite hair scarfs, a few accessories, and voila! … I was set to conquer the heat without sacrificing style.

Bright Florals

I can’t believe I haven’t worn this dress on Ruby Girl yet. It’s definitely a frequent flier in my wardrobe. But I definitely remember why I haven’t posted about it yet now that I’m thinking about it. It’s because every time I go to style it for a post, I remember that I already had posted a navy & hot pink outfit earlier in the week. Because navy & hot pink are obviously a match made in color combo heaven. Well this is this particular week’s navy & hot pink look. And this behind me is the house I grew up in. I went to my hometown for a girls’ weekend with some of my closest friends. Let’s just say we got a work-out from all of our laughing. True friends don’t come around every day, so when you find a good one, treat them right and hang on tight.

Put the Lime with the Polka Dots


… and drink it all up. Did any of you guys catch the reference? To that tropical-ish vintage song? My earliest memory with that song is in my math class in 6th grade. My spunky teacher played it every day for a week. I think he was ready for vacation. Although I distinctly remember thinking the lyrics were, “Put the lime in the Coke, you nut”. Later, when googling lyrics became a thing, many a revelation occurred including the fact that my original perception of the lyrics to Put the Lime in the Coconut were just a touch off.

Cotton Candy

Alright you guys. This might be one of my favorite outfits ever. And it reminds me of cotton candy. Which sounds ridiculously good right now. Need to get myself to the nearest carnival STAT.
So, part of the reason I LOVE blogging is because I get insurmountable joy out of sharing my finds with you! This is exactly why I always break down the outfit details from each post and share with you where you can find what I’m wearing or something similar to it. And I totally get that some of you have sky-high budgets shopping designer like divas and some of you are mega bargain-hunters. Lots of you are somewhere in between. And that is exactly why I try to link to items that are splurges, saves, and steals. I’ve got your back, ladies.
