Weekend Outfits

I hope you all had a wonderful eventful weekend. It was my Birthday weekend for those of you who don’t know. I turned 26 on July 15. I am very upfront about my age, we’ll see how many years it’s going to take before I turn 29 for the 10th year in a row 😉

Anyways, my amazing husband gave me an iPad, so that’s been a new centre of attention in the Hutson household. I also got a gift card to Clothes Mentor, which I can’t wait to go and spend! Anyways, you get the idea.

Saturday we went to a friends wedding and I wore Maria Bianca Nero dress. The dress actually was a hand me down, from a dear friend of mine. I am very upfront about my hand me downs too 🙂 Some of you also know that I’ve been working out like crazy this past week. Well, I just wanted to make sure I fit into the dress. And I did:

Here is a picture of Sam and me and the happy couple:

Today was kind of a chill stay at home day, but we did go for a walk to the Lake of the Isles, and I finally got to wear my $20 Eileen Fisher dress, a Clothes Mentor find btw:

The lining of this dress is silk, so it’s nice and cool, even in 90 degree weather. The belt came from a swap  in NYC (back in the good old days when I lived there – sigh), the bag isCoach from Goodwill, and the shoes are from Target.

I can’t wait to share some of the other things I got for my Birthday with you, and since it’s kind of a Birthday week this week, I’ll be giving something away on my blog, so subscribe if you don’t want to miss out!



This Week’s Finds: Clothing Haul

It all started with a trip to Salvation Army, unfortunately it was a miss for me this time, you know how thrift stores are. But then we went to Clothes Mentor (located in Market Plaza in Minneapolis) and Opitz (St. Louis Park), and that first store is seriously becoming my favorite consignment shop out there.

So here is what I got:

1. This pair of Chico’s pants, they are super light and breezy – perfect for work, especially during these extremely hot days. I already wore them to work yesterday and they seriously feel like lounge wear!

2. I also got this fabulous Eileen Fisher dress. I’ve always wanted to own something of hers, but her clothing can get pretty expensive, so I was more than happy to spend $20 on this dress. Plus it has pockets!

3. Up next is this Marc Jacobs top:

4. My last purchase at Clothes Mentor was this black chiffon skirt, it still had tags attached to it, and apparently it came from some local boutique and was originally priced at $145, well it only cost me $11.5 🙂

5. Our final stop was Opitz Outlet and it can be a hit or miss, but I scored this Ralph Lauren shirt, now if only the temperatures would go down!

As always – outfit posts to come! Have a fabulous day everyone!
