Adam Lippes Buffalo plaid collection hits Target stores today. If you are like me, you’ve been stalking the collection on line for at least a week. I’ve also been reading different guides and looking through everyone’s favorite looks on their blogs. The round ups are pretty cool, I have to say I am excited to shop the collection. Rachel and I are shopping it together, so make sure to follow us on social media and learn what we find, try on and keep/toss!
Having read this recent interview with Bill Cunningham, I started thinking about blogging and fashion industry as a whole. And while I still want to pursue a career as a buyer, I think it’s time to make this blog more unique and more me. Kind of that weird quirky style I used to have. I was so inspired that I even filmed a refashion video for you!
I had my first group presentation and my first midterm this week, and that’s why there will be way less posts on here, and way more pictures on Instagram, but I am very excited about Adam Lippes for Target collaboration that’s coming up at the end of the week, so I think I’ll feature that, and go spend my hard-earned college student dollars on more buffalo plaid!
Meanwhile I am also on a hunt for a garment steamer. I heard there is one at Goodwill by my house 😉
School started. You know when I was a kid I used to know all the car models and manufacturers. And then I fell out of the loop. Well, I am back to it now, the knowing I mean. Daily commutes contribute to that. And as excited as I am about my senior year, I am sad. Maybe I’ve been listening to too much Radiohead lately, but the unknown scares me, kind of. Sam has been extremely supportive and told me to take as long as I need to find that dream job after I graduate. So I am not really worried about that, I guess it’s more excitement that keeps me up at night.
I am at 18 credits this semester, one being an empty internship credit that I fulfilled over the summer. But I am taking Merchandising Math, Retail Promotions, Stats, Management and Introduction to Entrepreneurship, which may be my favorite class.
So between classes, “work”, and walking Mason, I also try to find time to keep my house together and not ditch all of my friends.
Meanwhile, catch me on Instagram.
Blogging is an interesting and weird thing. We go online, write a post, upload some photos, create a SEO title and put in some keywords. Then we share it on social media. Sometimes we share a lot, sometimes way too much. But then you meet people who share your interests and passions, you make friends, you attend events. And somehow in the end it all makes sense, so we keep doing it.
And while you are contemplating your existence now, I am sharing my favorite part about transitional seasons – fall floral trend, that is until the first snow falls.

Having spent all summer interning, I had very few opportunities to take time off and do something fun. I remember last summer being full of road trips and adventures, and I’m kind of sad I missed out on that this year. But this summer was full of trips to the beach, walks around the lakes and hang outs with friends. And while I’m not as adventurous as my husband, who went on a hiking trip up north, I like to stick to the regional trails, I might just have to end this summer with a trip to a place I’ve never been before. And now I have my new Prana pants to do it in!
Sam and I had an incredible 4 day weekend. Thursday we went to campus, and oh my goodness how I missed it! We went to all three campuses, took the connector to St Paul, because I wanted Sam to see my campus, and because I wanted to go to Lori’s for coffee.
It definitely feels good to be a senior, but the realization hasn’t hit me yet. I love school, being on campus (even though I don’t live on campus) and seeing my friends. And I know it will be hard for me to leave, but I’m going to enjoy my last year to the fullest.
This semester I’ll be busy with 18 credits, and two internships, I’m staying with Verizon for a while, as well as continuing my Style Guru escapades with CollegeFashionista. This semester I will also be a social media inter at CF, so keep an eye out for all the awesome #stylegurulove posts on my Instagram.
The past two days have been a welcome fall preview in Minneapolis. The leather jacket came out, the hoodie made it’s appearance, denim leggings didn’t seem like too much or too hot or too anything… I am so excited for the rain and 60 degrees, but I am even more excited for school to start. Sam and I are going to campus on Thursday to hang out, visit the St Paul campus, because Sam has never been there, walk along the river, and get my books and planner (I really feel like my life has been in chaos without one). We are also looking forward to going to Boom Island Park!
Have you ever typed up a few whole sentences only to realize they’ve been in the wrong language? Oh the benefits of having two keyboards, and then forgetting to switch.
Now that the summer is winding down Sam and I are trying to spend as much time at the beach as we can. And yesterday I stepped out of my comfort zone in this Lilly Pulitzer romper. A – it’s a romper, B – it’s a brand that I almost never wear, and C – it’s the wildest summer pattern I own. But all of the above doesn’t really matter, does it? Especially when there is this cool hashtag in the title of the post – #SummerInLilly
I have recently read an article about Lilly Pulitzer doing social media right, they are one of the few brands who doesn’t outsource it to a third party agency. I will do my best to try and find that piece, but it was in the new Apple News App on my beta iOS 9, so…
Meanwhile I am binge watching The X Files on Netflix, and hoping that the truth, is in fact, out there.

We had a great time last night at the Walker Art Center’s Pop Remix, the terrace was open and we got to see a fashion show featuring Emma Berg’s new line, as well as Christian Joy Costumes collection!
Afterwards we ended up going to the Uptown diner for burgers and malts!
Happy Friday everyone! Have an awesome weekend!
