Ruby








Hold on a sec, I'm writing this at 12:34 on 12/13/14 and am finding that particularly awesome. I feel like I should be doing something profound in this particular 60 seconds, like contemplating the meaning of life or mastering an incredibly challenging yoga pose. (Attempts a 5th grade gymnastics headstand). Aforesaid move is not so comfortable with a sock bun. Though today I've realized it's one of the most comfortable hairdo's, I guess for everything but headstands. Nothing's pulling, tight, or tense, and everything is off the neck and shoulders. Easy breezy!

Velvet in Marsala











My family was in town over the weekend which means endless doting on my adorable little niece and nephews. It's remarkable to me how much they change in just a few months. It really is something to be able to know someone from birth and watch them grow up. On day 1, 7 and 27, they're just a tiny little ball of potential. No definitions, no personally realized identity, and very little personality for the world to see. And eventually they start sprouting up and taking on mom's nose and dad's eyebrows and mimi's  affinity for snuggling. When I was going "on a walk" down the hotel hallway with my youngest niece of 2 years old, I simply couldn't stop admiring her curiosity and gracefulness. How is everything she does ridiculously adorable!? She giggles. Aww! She sneezes. Aww! She stands in the middle of the room doing absolutely nothing. Aww! 

The rustic adirondacks around the fire pit complete with cozy blankets to curl up in made for the perfect Sunday hang with the family. We also played a little bocce ball and hung out with Santa, without leaving Pinstripes in Edina. Oh and did I mention brunch? Well it was Sunday so it can only be assumed… Hands down though, my favorite part was definitely the chocolate fondue. And trust me we fondid it with flair.

Plaid & Tweed







The shirt and tweed jacket I'm wearing in today's post are from Piperlime and is part of their Moments of Chic challenge. They're both really comfortable pieces that can be worn a million different ways. Here I styled them in a more formal, festive way. I could also see the look dressed down with a pair of medium-washed distressed jeans and riding boots. The jacket has a more modern, clean-lined silhouette than most tweed jackets, making it a bit more edgy of a piece and quite unique. 

I hope you had a great weekend! I got all of my Christmas shopping done and am looking forward to the next phase in the process… wrapping. Because though it may be faux pas to judge a book by its cover, we all do it anyway and the same goes for gift-wrapping!

Layered Knits


With all of the layering, mixing, and matching of knits we do in these chilly months, the #TOMSforTarget collection has been a perfect fit. I'm grateful for the opportunity to be partnering with TOMS & Target to help spread the word about their incredible new collection that gives back with every purchase. This grey sweater is quickly becoming a go-to. The color is so versatile and goes with pretty much all of my Minnesota-ready outerwear gear. The cozy knit sweater blanket has been my close companion for mornings, afternoons, and evenings… anytime I can squeeze in a few minutes to pour into my latest read. Right now, it's Jacqueline Kennedy Bouvier Onassis. I'm loving reading about her summers in the Hamptons and winters on Park Avenue. Inextricably linked with these cozy pockets of time is a warm vanilla chai tea, which of late I've been sipping from the cutest TOMS mug.
To read more about the collection and the inspiring way that it gives back, check out my last post featuring a #TOMSforTarget Gift Guide.

TOMS For Target: One-for-One. For All. Starting November 16th, for every Target+TOMS limited edition gift you buy, we're (Target) giving shoes, a blanket or meals to those in need. #TOMSForTarget  Disclosure:  “Disclosure: Compensation was provided by Target via Mode Media.  The opinions expressed herein are those of the author and are not indicative of the opinions or positions of Target.”
