Freaking out over: The Belle and the Beau Ties & Shoe Clips

I was stumbling around Pinterest when I found something that might actually make my man and I even cuter than we already are (modest, I know).

The Belle and the Beau

makes INCREDIBLE bowties and ties--  nothing new, I know, but guess what else? Shoe clips (or "shoe pretties" as they call them) for the girls. Ties run about $24-$36 and shoe clips about $20-$32. HOLY SMOKES. Tim Gunn would call it "too matchy-matchy" but I don't even care, it's too fantastic...I apologize if by the time you get to this site everything is sold out...because we bought it all.

Freaking Out Over: Aqua Spring 2012

I stopped by one of my favorite outlets, Optiz, on the way to Trader Joe's yesterday and picked up a pretty fantastic gray dress with a super cute triangle pattern made by Aqua.  I hopped on the interwebs to try to find a nice photo of it for you all when I stumbled across their Spring Look Book. I have been having a hard time getting into colorblocking- not that I don't love it, it just doesn't really fit into my personal aesthetic easily --until now! I just love all of this-its bright, simple but stands out, and best of all- totally wearable. Check out the entire collection at Bloomingdale's.

Local Spotlight: SnowGRADE

I'm a little behind on this but I finally had time to make a quick post about NorthernGRADE- the winter version of the much loved NorthernGRADE menswear, American-made, pop-up event here in Minneapolis. I had a great time and got my man a very awesome gift which I will post after I give it to him. I was tickled to hear about local shop, Black Blue, which I somehow did not know about! My man and I will definitely be stopping over there when he gets back from Scandinavia. All of my photos (most of which didn't turn out, unfortunately) can be seen over on my Flickr. Stay tuned for NorthernGRADE, September 15th and 16th.  But for now, just a few favorites above!
