Spring Denim Must-Haves with Orvis

Disclosure: “I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review.”

I don’t want to jinx it, but I am pretty sure spring is finally coming to Minnesota. The forecast said it will be above 70 degrees for 3 days in a row, and I am ready for the warmth. I think living in the midwest for the past 5 years made me want to talk about the weather more than anything, or I am just becoming boring.

However, one thing that never gets boring is the denim on denim trend. And this spring I am adding yet another chambray shirt to my collection, but this time I paired it up with a skirt. Are you surprised that I have taken a step away from my usual skinny jeans? I still have an X amount of those in my closet, even after I’ve been spring cleaning all week last week 😉

Both the skirt and the shirt are from Orvis. I am kind of in like with their spring line. And while they are an outdoorsy company that offers a lot of hiking clothes, there are pieces perfect for everyday wear. Also, just to remind you, I did hike around Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs two summers ago in a skirt!

So having said all this, I hope you enjoy my look, and my inner 8th grader that I had to channel by wearing the Adidas sneakers along with my Free People crop top 😉

Make sure to enter the contest Orvis is having for all the readers! They will randomly select 10 winners from all program entries and will send out the $100 gift cards. The contest runs through May 2, 2016!

Replacement

We often replace things in life. And this time, I had to replace my chambray shirt, that I wore out in about 2 years. It’s hard to part with an item that has been there for you when you didn’t know what to wear. It’s hard to find a replacement. I finally understand people who buy several different shirts or tops of the same kind, maybe in different colors, but, you get the idea. Last week during my thrifting escapades I found this JCrew chambray shirt, and, there it was – my new chambray.

I also went and got balayage done last Saturday. This time around Charlie did an even better job, and it didn’t take me too long to realize that I am not a highlights person. But a balayage is right up my alley. Having my hair bleached definitely helps wash it less over the summer, because it doesn’t get greasy as fast. Another lesson I learned is that I probably shouldn’t go 4 months between the appointments.

Utopian Eyewear

denim-outifit-minneapolis-fashion-blogger denim-on-denim-look-being-zhenya Having been taking back roads to work for the past couple of weeks, I noticed a development, a big cluster of identical houses, and town homes tucked away behind Excelsior Boulevard. And for some reason it reminded me of Pleasantville. Even though the connection is completely off, now that I think of this whole establishment, it’s more of a Zamyatin “We” scenario. Anyways, last weekend Sam and I walked around and explored those few blocks of identical living.

It’s also this time of year, when sunglasses become more of a necessity than an accessory. And I am shopping for new eyewear. There are so many options, like these by Ray-Ban – from colorful to mirrored, I know they’ll have my eyes covered. rayban-sunglasses   I also love these Tory Burch ones, good cat eyes are really hard to find! Tory-Burch-sunglasses And, finally, I couldn’t leave this eclectic, futuristic and altogether out of this world eyewear by 3.1 Philip Lim unnoticed! 3.1-philip-lim-sunglasses Which do you like the most? Which ones would you wear? What shape sunglasses do you prefer?

Уже несколько недель подряд мы ездим на работу обочными путями. Все потому, что везде ремонт, и все перекопано! И конечно же я не могла не заметить район, состоящий из почти идентичных домов. Мне сразу вспомнился фильм Pleasantville. Хоть я и понимаю, что тут все напоминает книгу Замятина “Мы”, с ассоциациями не поспоришь. В прошлые выходные мы с Сэмом решили обойти эти утопические кварталы.

Наступает лето, а значит солнечные очки переходят из разряда аксессуаров, в разряд вещей первой необходимости! И я присматриваю себе новые. Очень понравились очки от Ray-Ban, особенно зеркальные. Отличные очки есть и у Tory Burch, хороший кошачий глаз найти очень сложно, а в этой коллекции у дизайнера несколько пар. И, напоследок, я обратила внимание на 3.1 Philip Lim – эклектика и футуризм в одном флаконе.

Какие очки понравились вам? Какие бы вы надели? Какую форму очков вы предпочитаете?

Oh Minnesota winter, when will you leave already? Spring has been teasing us this weekend, only to delay it’s arrival until next weekend. What can I say? I can’t live comfortably unless it’s 60 degrees outside.

Spring signs are everywhere though, and I can’t wait to see what comes up in my garden.
