Are you ready to go out with me? It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be funky, it’s going to be crazy! It’s spring, and there are so many beautiful colors in the palette! I love this dress for it’s straight lines, and color combo. It’s an amazing piece that’s perfect for spring and summer. And you never know, there might be some dancing involved, after those cocktails!

I am wearing: Dress: 10 Dollar Mall ~ Shoes: Target ~ Jacket: Vintage thrifted ~Glasses: thrifted

Last week I had an opportunity to do a photo shoot at a local boutique (Dji G’s Boutique) in Northeast Minneapolis. Here is a little behind the scenes for you. And of course I will share pictures once they are ready.


I know it’s been crazy with A to Z challenge, and all my outfit photos. Plus the local fashion events are popping up left and right and I love covering those! Hopefully things will slow down in May. I do have some exciting tech posts coming up. I am getting an Intel Tablet here soon, and can’t wait to share my experience with you! But enough about me, how have you all been?

  6. That dress is really cute! It reminds me of the dress Twiggy wore that was inspired by the color block painting by Piet Mondrian! PS Your living room (or whoevers it is) is really well put together : )
