Valentine's Day Picks


 
Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine's Day is coming up, and it's the best holiday to dress for too! Ok so I may need to brush up on my poem-writing, but you get the point. I mean, how much fun to get all dolled up in a flirty little get-up in pink or red or both?! You can go romantic and perfectly alluring in a little red dress, or easy breezy in a flouncy pink skirt. Whether you go head-to-toe or pop in the iconic hues through an accessory, have fun with your outfit this Valentine's Day! And these outfit pieces are a great place to start.

Jean Shopping Guide

Shopping for the perfect pair of jeans is a challenge to say the least. We could try on a hundred pairs and still be just as lost as we were when we started. Let's avoid the hassle and shop smart. I've put together a guide on the three most common styles of jeans and which body types work best with each.

Skinny: Fitted from top to bottom, one of the perks of this style of jean cut is that it slides the most comfortably into a pair of boots … so we can opt out of those annoying skin dents in our calves from crumpled wider-cut hems. This style of jean looks especially chic with a pointed toe stiletto. For a slimming effect, go for a high-rise waist. Skinny jeans look great when styled with oversized or more boxy tops. This style of jean tends to look great on boyish and hourglass figures. Skinny jeans also tend to lengthen legs for those with a more petite frame.

Straight: Straight jeans hug the thighs and hang slightly looser without flaring at the ankles. This cut of womens jeans has a sophisticated, mature vibe. They show off leg shape while leaving a little bit to the imagination. They tend to be more office-ready. The straightness of the cut skims the legs and has a slimming effect on thighs and calves. To slenderize this style of jean even more, go for a darker wash and wear a heel. Have a pear body shape? This style of jeans is great for you because it tastefully accentuates your curves. This style of jeans also looks great on an hourglass figure.

Boyfriend: This baggy style of jean doesn't hug the leg anywhere, but hangs loosely. This is a really trendy denim shape of the moment. Distressed washes with holes and rips make for even more of a fashion statement. A hallmark of this style is the cuffed ankles. To slenderize this look, wear a more fitted top with these jeans. Boyish and hourglass figures will find this a flattering style of jean to wear.

Jeans in the collage above are True Religion.

Ice Skate Date








It may look like I went for a little joy-skate all by my lonesome, but I really did have a date. A pretty awesome one at that. He just happens to be behind the camera this time around. There's really very little more freeing than ice skating. Sometimes you fall and otherwise look a little goofy and sometimes you get a nice good glide in and feel like you could go all Michelle Kwan on that ice. It's a simple thing. It's a sweet thing. Especially when you're with someone you love. And especially because if I'm ice-skating, it means it's 30-degrees or more and I'll take that any ol Minnesota winter day.

Tweed a la Casual






When comfy weekend-wear meets work-wear, I guess you get something that looks a little bit like this. Because sometimes heels & a sweatshirt can actually hang out in the same outfit together. PS, say hello to my newest Kate Spade bag, a Christmas gift from Patrick. I have a feeling it'll be seen a lot more around here. 

Well you guys, we made it to Friday. Hope yours is a good one!

How to Wear: Blush Tones & Neutrals

I love an all-neutral outfit. Blush has become a new neutral, on par with the likes of cream, black, and navy. It pairs beautifully with other soft, muted tones. The monochromatic look can be a bit intimidating, so I thought I'd share 9 different ways to wear this feminine style.
