Sweater Weather

While I am here buried under my homework, Minnesota is buried under the snow. Sweater weather is here, along with  heavy coat weather, and Sorel boots weather. They are saying it will rain on Sunday, which means Monday we are going to skate all over the highways!

I hope you are all doing well. I am having a little spending problem here… (seriously everywhere from MOA, to Goodwill to online!) So excuse me while I go shop online some more ;) Unless you want to join me! Haha

How amazing are all these gloves, turtleneck sweaters and jackets?

Sweatshirts in Style – Olivia Palermo Inspired

OliviaPalermoSweatshirtWhiteSkirt

 

So while we are getting more and more inches of snow by the hour, let me show you the look inspired by Olivia Palermo from a couple weeks ago. I wore my outfit to the Minnesota Blog Conference in October. I love the conference, mainly because I get to meet new people and reconnect with my old friends. And I can’t wait for next year already!

Style It: Midi Skirt

2014-10-29 06.34.37

My new favorite midi skirt by Joa is one of the most tactile textural pieces that I’ve owned. Also one of the few grey ones. The thick polyester makes it perfect for chilly fall days, and the coming winter. And of course the polka dot pattern. I will be honest this pattern has grown on me over the past few months. Here it’s very subtle, and I really like that.

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you are all dressing up and having a party this weekend! I’ll have some pics on my Instagram today and tomorrow! So make sure to check those out.

Palm Saturday

Happy Weekend! Fridays are now indeed my FriYAYs since college started. And even though I enjoy school, I still like my weekends more.

I have been looking for something new and different to wear, something to stand out in! That’s why this re:named ensemble is perfect! Besides someone on Instagram has already called this flashy ;) Mission accomplished!

I especially like this outfit because, even though it is a crop top, it covers in all the right places, and my belly button isn’t showing (I’m like Taylor Swift when it comes to showing my belly button). And it was so easy to style for fall – all I had to do was add tights, cardigan or a jacket (this is actually thrifted! I am still thrifting in case anyone is wondering ;) )

Minnetonka Orchards

minnetonkaorchards

About a week ago my friend Kara and I went to Minnetonka Orchards, between hot cider and hay rides, we managed to explore the corn maze, make friends with the sheep and take a whole lot of pictures. Growing up I never had an opportunity to go to an orchard like this, mostly because we don’t do that in Russia, so I was trying to catch up. The highlight of my day there was being called a walking page out of Anthropologie catalog, definitely made my day! I’m going to keep walking ;)

Coffee Table Fashion

2014-09-17 07.31.01

I am always looking for new books to add to my coffee table or any other flat surface in my living room. You know, the kind that you can look through on a rainy day and doze off. The kind that inspires you. The kind, that like a good friend has few words, but understands.

So here are some of my choices for your coffee table ;) Enjoy!

Layers of Fall #ThriftStyleThursday

fallaccessories

Fall has always been about layers for many, and I am no exception. There is something about cozying up in a favorite sweater or scarf. It’s to the point of emotional attachment almost. And I don’t even want to try and explain it.

When fall becomes an accessory, you know you are doing it right!

It’s been a tough September for the Thrift Style Thursday group, but after everyone has reconsidered, we came back together, maybe not such a large group as before, but we are determined to bring you style and love every Thursday! Even if it’s not all thrifted ;)

Courtney Kerr on Fashion, Blogging and RewardStyle

Thursday after class I was in a rush. But it wasn’t to get home and study for the next midterm. I was on my way to Macy’s Southdale to interview Courtney Kerr and attend the fashion show after. Courtney and I talked about blogging, rewardStyle, social media, coffee and makeup! She is absolutely amazing in person, and reminded me of another favorite TV personality – Chelsea Handler.

Just click play to listen to the interview:

The Macy’s Fashion Rocks event that followed was absolutely amazing. Courtney is a great host, and made the looks so relatable. She followed the current trends: menswear and rocker chic, and gave helpful style advice to the audience after. Needless to say, I did some shopping afterwards, and if you follow me on Instagram, you will probably see the looks before anyone else ;)
