This week brings the biggest photo shoot of my career thus far. Just the scale, logistics and timing have me anxious but I’m pumped to share some behind-the-scenes action along the way and, of course, the final product as it comes together. Follow along here and forgive me as I’m quiet these next few days. After three mornings of 3 a.m. wake up calls, you wouldn’t want to hear from me anyway. Ha!

Right before I went off the grid last week, an exciting new project launched on on mallofamerica.com – our back-to-school look book! Browse the whole thing here and get ready for brown bag lunches, overflowing backpacks and new kicks!

I need more casual sneakers in my life (all the cool kids are doing it). It’s official.

Now that the sunshine has become a more common occurrence in the state of Minnesota, it’s time to ditch the boots. Lately, I’ve caught myself being drawn to two things: chunky heels and architectural details. Two things the moccasins I’m currently rocking don’t have. Time to up my shoe game like the inspiration above!

If these frocks don’t get you pumped for summer, I don’t know what will!

So I was totally wrong about the forecast today but wore a maxi dress anyway. Not quite as stunning as this one above, but I’ll take it.

A bunch of my co-workers have hopped on the white sneaker trend and I think they might, slowly but surely, be convincing me to do the same. Their go-to is the classic Adidas but my allegiance has yet to be decided. Suggestions welcome!

I think I’ve mentioned it about fifty times here, but I’ve got a TON of weddings this year. I’m relying on a few staple dresses to carry me through but am looking for some new ways to jazz it up a bit so I’m not looking like a clone of myself in every photo. Enter: bright accessories. I think these will do the trick!
1 :: Roland from Warby Parker (new for summer!)
2 :: Presentation Dress from J.Crew
3 :: Cedar Street Harmony Bag from kate spade new york
4 :: What’s the Scoop Bangle from kate spade new york
5 :: Holland Heeled Sandal from Banana Republic
I’ve been using the same purse for a solid two years now. It has served me well but, I fear, it may be time to update. I was browsing some of my favorite handbag brands for some ideas but then happened upon this guy from Target, of all places. Could it be the answer to my handbag hunt? If not I better start saving my pennies for one of the pricier models that caught my eye!
