Classic Tomboy

 When I wear things like this, I get reactions from people like I’m basically wearing my pajamas in public. But I really do go casual sometimes and I really do like it. Not quite casual enough to actually wear pajamas in public (except every once in a while when a midnight trip to Walgreen’s for Ghirardelli chocolate is absolutely necessary).

Sundays at the Conservatory

This is one of my favorite spots in the city. It’s a wildly beautiful conservatory. I adore all of the vibrant colors and the medley of flowers in the garden. It’s undeniably inspiring and the perfect place to stop and smell the roses because as they say, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content.


I’d been looking for a pair of floral “flouncy shorts” for a while and finally stumbled on these in Dry Goods.  The lace detailing on the hem sealed the deal. I kept the look in the pastel family by pairing the shorts with a light yellow shirt. Always a fan of pattern-mixing, the stripes were a fun contrast with the floral.

A Day in my Pumpz








Yesterday I took over the Pumpz Co Instagram and strutted by Tory Burch tote all around the city for #ADayinMyPumpz. Pumpz is a quality shoes, handbag and accessories store in the Galleria in Edina Minnesota. They carry Tory Burch (obvi!), Hunter, 3.1 Philip Lim, and Karen Walker, just to name a few. I love that I can shop my favorite designers without the commercial vibe of the big department stores. The staff is so attentive and welcoming. I totally recommend a visit if you haven’t been or haven’t been in a while!

Mint to Be







I love it when Thursdays turn into Fridays. I have a speaking engagement in my hometown of Appleton, Wisconsin this weekend which means I’m hitting the road tonight. It’s fun to see where pursuing your dreams takes you… sometimes for a visit right back where you started from. The only sure thing is that it’s never a straight (or smooth!) path. But always exciting. Because there is no ordinary when you are boldly you. 







Enjoy your Thursday!

All Tied Up





Yesterday was one of those ridiculously crazy days from sun-up to sun-down. I honestly can’t help but make my life that way. And about 99.9% of the time I embrace the busy-ness. Because most of the time I build what I need into the day too. Like a pit-stop for raspberry macarons or a jam-session while driving downtown to Bills by Lunchmoney Lewis 🙂 While a part of yesterday wasn’t quite that 00.1%, I was definitely glad to have my head hit the pillow. And today, it’s ALL about that blog re-desing. You guys, it’s coming so soon! I can’t wait to share it with you! Luptid Style has been wonderful to work with and we’re getting things all set behind the curtain before the big reveal. xoxo!
