Worth the Wait

September 29, 2014

Top: J. Crew Factory. Jeans: Banana Republic. Necklace: J. Crew (similar). Purse: Coach. Hat: Anthropologie (similar). Boots: Sam Edelman

I said on Friday that this was my GSD weekend, and I pretty much got everything done that I wanted to! There was still time for wine, volleyball, and shopping though too ;)

Now, about these booties. I ordered them at the beginning of September, but they were on backorder. So I patiently waited four weeks for their arrival. Needless to say, they were well worth the wait. I'm obsessed.

3. H&M
6. H&M

I would be a very happy girl if all six of these items found their way into my closet this fall. Minneapolis is still having its fun with predicted 80 degrees this weekend (insert wailing emoji). I'm itching to pull out my hardcore sweaters and jackets :)

Do you have anything fun planned this weekend? This is my GSD (get shit done) weekend. I just bought a desk that I need to get organized, I need to do a bunch of things around the apartment that I've been putting off, take blog pictures, and catch up on homework. 

Have a good one!

Anniversary Attire

September 24, 2014

Skirt: J. Crew (Factory version). Sweater: Forever 21. Necklace: J. Crew. Shoes: Zara (similar). Purse: Forever 21

I wore this out for dinner at the St. Paul Grill last weekend to celebrate Mark and my six year anniversary (!!). It was a perfect night. The food was amazing, and the company was even better :)

Top: J. Crew Factory. Jeans: J. Crew Factory. Shoes: Sam Edelman. Purse: Forever 21. Necklace: J. Crew (similar). 

Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was pretty excellent. Mark and I tried out a local waffle restaurant that was so yummy, saw This Is Where I Leave You (very funny), celebrated our six year anniversary with dinner at the St. Paul Grill (delicious), spent time with both of our families and then eventually had to say goodbye. Since this is our senior year, we're finally getting closer to living in the same place again and that's what gets me through those goodbyes. 

Now, let's talk about this outfit. Minneapolis is having its fun toying with us. We had a week of full-on fall weather and then now it's been warming up. This outfit is perfect for those days that are warmer than we'd like for September. This top is actually made out of sweatshirt material, so it feels like you're dressing for fall, but it's short sleeved so you're not sweating bullets. Lovely, I know ;)

Hope you have a great start to your week!

Double Plaid

September 17, 2014

Scarf: Zara (similar). Blouse: J. Crew Factory. Jeans: Loft. Boots: Hunter. Bag: Old Navy (similar). Sunglasses: RayBan

I am obsessed with this scarf. As you may know, I'm still kicking myself for not buying the Zara blanket scarf last year. So this year I pretty much stalked the website until I laid eyes on this little lady and purchased her immediately. Anyways, enough obsessing over my scarf. Mark came home on Monday and I am the happiest girl in the world right now! 

Hope your week is going well!

Leather Pockets

September 15, 2014

Sweater: J. Crew Factory. Jeans: J. Crew Factory. Shoes: Sam Edelman. Purse: Topshop (similar). 

This is pretty much going to be my fall uniform: Sam Edelman sneaks (what else is new?), distressed jeans, and a sweater. This is my first pair of distressed denim and I feel like a rebel. My mom would never let me buy jeans with holes in them when I was growing up. She didn't see the point. So I feel pretty cool now that I own my first pair ;) I would highly recommend this J. Crew Factory pair. They fit true to size and are really comfortable. Although, they do stretch out after about three wears.

How was your weekend? I got all of my work done so I can spend more time with Mark this week! There was some fun mixed in though, don't worry :) a trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, happy hour, movies and a gopher volleyball game. All-in-all a very fun and productive weekend!

Fabulous Finds

September 12, 2014

1. I've been searching for a light pink lipstick and I've heard good things about YSL. Can't decide if I would ever spend this much on lipstick though.
2. I wear my leopard Sam Edelman's at least every other day, so I should probably just buy another pair of slip ons, right?
3. I die. This J. Crew Factory coat is pink perfection. 
4. This quilted Rebecca Minkoff is gorge. 
5. Apparently I'm loving pink and black, and these Kate Spade heels are no exception. 

What a week. It's only the second week of the semester but I feel like I'm just catching my breath. I'm one of the presidents of NSAC (National Student Advertising Competition) and we had our first meeting this week. I also switched a class after the first week so I'm still playing catch up. Lastly Mark is coming home on Monday (!!!!) so I've been spending any time I have doing homework so that I'll have more time to spend with him next week. This weekend will be equal parts homework (gross) and fun: gopher volleyball game, drinks with friends.

Have a good one!

Leather and Gold

September 11, 2014

Top: J. Crew Factory. Skirt: Nordstrom (similar). Shoes: JCPenny's. Clutch: Anthropologie (similar). Earrings: Target

I had a dream a few weeks ago that I bought a leather-fronted top and then when I woke up I decided that I needed one IRL. This top may have been purchased not long after said dream :) Anyways...I wore this outfit on Monday for my sister's birthday dinner at Vincent, a swanky French restaurant in Minneapolis. 

Hope your week is going well!
