We’ve had PERFECT fall weather these past several days. This is one of the reasons I LOVE Minneapolis! The fall is one of the most beautiful scenery you’ll see anywhere! I’ve been training for the Medtronic Twin Cities 10 Miler, which is next weekend. After running 10 miles earlier in the day, I just wanted to lounge around sipping green tea and read fashion blogs. I met up with a friend at Sebastien Joe’s ice Cream parlor. We poured over our favorite fashion blogs, sampled ice cream, sipped green tea and discussed how we would style this and that. PERFECT way to spend a Sunday! I needed a fun, casual, fashion-forward outfit to match!
I found this ADORBS elephant print shirt at a local gift shop called Belle Weather – they recently added resale clothing! They are classified as a gift shop on YELP, but earlier this summer, they added resale clothing! It’s a GREAT shop with very carefully curated items at a great price. It’s one of those resale shops where you don’t have to DIG and DIG and DIG to find one nice thing – EVERYTHING is CUTE! If you’re in Minneapolis – check them out!
One thing I’ve learned – especially with the oversized trend that is so popular right now, I shop EVERY rack, and not just in my size. Lucky thing, as this shirt is actually an XL – wearing it oversized and off the shoulder gives it such a carefree, bohemian vibe. Plus, a little shoulder actions is understated but sexy!
I paired this cute little Elephant shirt with a pair of J Brand Army green cargo pants. The pants are a loose fit adding to the casual comfort of this outfit. The J Brand cargo’s have great details, including pockets, cuffs and zippers along the side calf!
And the DEETS!
I started sweating when I saw these shoes Miu Miu Trompe-d’Loeil on June Resale Boutique‘s instagram. I KNEW they HAD to be mine.
When I came in to try them on, they fit like a DREAM.
I’m a grown women and I SQUEALED – IN.PUBLIC. Have you ever been so excited about a fashion find you SQUEALED?
Aren’t they so perfect? Miu Miu’s iconic curved heel, in a soft black suede peep-toe bootie, with navy blue satin accents. It’s so hard to find navy shoes, and in this design, it is PERFECTION!
Since it’s still kind of warm, I’m still occasionally wearing my favorite summer bag, my Balenciaga City Bag.
And of course, ARMCANDY. You probably know by now, I LOVE jewelry, especially bracelets, and ESPECIALLY when you can stack them on, pile them on, BRING EM ON! The fresh water pearl bracelet & the hummingbirdy beaded bracelet are courtesy of Love Khloe Studios. Arent’ they so darling? And super affordable too! The Love Khloe Studio bracelets complement the quirky elephant print on my shirt so perfectly! I added a few simple gold bangles, and VOILE, ARMCANDY baby!
