Paris inspired look

Yesterday I found my birth certificate, which means I can finally get my passport. And that means I can finally travel! Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Milan and Berlin! I have been wanting to explore Europe forever! My first destination is actually Ireland, where Robert’s sister Sarah will be studying abroad next year. And Robert and I have plans to visit!
And yesterday’s look is perfect for travel. It’s inspired by Paris! I love my new black and white striped Hello Miss dress from Primp West End! It’s the perfect cut for me! And, it has pockets! Primp Excelsior has the dress available in a hot pink stripe and a peach. I opted for the black and white stripes, which I paired with my fedora and black wedges. I finished the look with a white necklace, watch and pearl bracelet.


Happy Sunday from Excelsior!


Today I wore a white overlay maxi skirt from Primp with a pink top from Plato’s and a jean jacket from Forever 21. I finished the look with my pink G by Guess sandals from DSWand white statement necklace from Herberger’s.

Isn’t it lovely?

It was the perfect outfit for a day at the boutique and then an evening walking around the lake with Robert. It was beautiful out so he met me in Excelsior after work and we went for a walk and got dinner.

How did you spend your sunny Sunday?

Happy Tuesday from Redcoat

Pretty Little Liars reference, anyone?

Remember that red trench coat from the Southdale Herberger’s Trendevous fashion show I told you about? Well, here it is.


After seeing the photos by Robert Swansen, I was reminded of red coat from Pretty Little Liars. And what better day for a PLL reference than Tuesday! Happy PLL day everyone!


Currently craving: Flats & summer sandals

Three-inch pumps are great for office jobs that require little walking and standing throughout the day. But, working in retail calls for comfortable shoes. I’m currently craving new styles of flats, summer sandals and perhaps some low heels that will get me through the eight-hour shifts in the boutique without causing damage to my feet.

Summer Shoes
Coral is a huge color for the spring and summer! We’re seeing a lot of coral in Primp, so I’m thinking I’ll need some coral shoes to match. I’d also love some ultra comfortable Keds. I remember hating the styles when I worked at DSW. But, then I saw the Keds ads with TSwift, and I fell in love. I love how she styles the Keds with simple summer dresses for a fun casual look. Of course, I’d love some new sandals for summer and who doesn’t love a good flat with some embellishments.
I think it’s time for a trip to DSW.
What shoes are you currently craving?

Mother’s Day madness

Robert and I celebrated Mother’s Day in style. He wore a checkered button-down with gray slacks and cognac Steve Maddens for a brunch with all the women in his family. Then, he and his mom visited me in Excelsior and checked out all the fun little shops while I worked. I have to say I was a little jealous he got to spend the entire holiday with his mom.

I opted for a sunny yellow dress from Forever 21, my new jean jacket from Primp and my flat sandals from DSW for a busy day at the boutique. We had a ton of moms and daughters out shopping for Mother’s Day and were insanely busy until close! It was a great day. Before heading out, I bought two blouses for my mom. Then, I headed home for a quick visit with her! The tops fit her perfectly, and she loved the styles! Score!
