A bit of color inspiration for your day. Keeping it simple. And autumnal, of course.
We’ve hit the tipping point up here in Minnesota and I’m officially cold. So cold that I slept on the floor next to the fireplace last night. This is making me nervous for the 7 months of winter that are yet to even rear their head. If the Farmer’s Almanac is accurate, I’m hearing that it’s going to be a snowy one. Thankfully, I have a stash of cold day go-to’s below that have been keeping me company these last few days and will serve me well for the Minnesota winter to come.
1 :: Lamborghini Mercy Sweatshirt
The birthday gift that I can always find an excuse to wear.
2 :: ‘Melissa’ Leather Boots
They go perfect with my sweatshirt, what can I say? Ha!
3 :: Gone Girl
After all the hype last week, I still haven’t had a chance to crack this one open just yet!
4 :: Voluspa Maison Blanc Candle
Perfect scent for a puppy-dominated home.
5 :: Cally Minnetonka Moccasin Slippers
For early morning dog walks and cookie baking on the cold kitchen tile.

The last few days have been a blur of Sever’s Corn Maze adventures, late night movie watching, fleece blanket making (flashback to 2005) and far too many cans of Diet Coke on my part. I guess that’s what happens when you’re hanging with an 11-year old all weekend! It has been a blast, though, and I’m sneaking in this post before our last adventures today. Catch you tomorrow, friends, after what’s hopefully a long night of sleep!
A dash of magenta, a punch of drama and a whole lots of inspiration.
As I hoped today was a new day. Fueled by Diet Coke, email banter with my sister and a clear head, I spent the majority of my day working on holiday creative and am pretty pumped about the results. Of course, you won’t get to see them for a few months, but that’s how it goes working in retail. Let’s hope that creative energy flows into the evening because I’ve got a few more projects to tackle and some cookies to bake (a different type of creativity!). But I leave you with this beautiful image and a palette that perfectly encompasses the moody, cold, autumn day we’re having in Minneapolis. Also. I’m on a muted emerald kick lately. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

Today was a doozy. In the creative block, beat yourself up, over-analyzing things type of way. I know myself well enough to know that this can, thankfully, be reversed by either painting my nails, cleaning my makeup brushes (odd, but true) or reading a book this evening. I’m opting for option numero tres and diving into Gone Girl tonight. I might be the last person in the country to read it but I’m on a deadline here, people. I’m seeing the movie in six days. Send power reading vibes my way, please. And maybe some creative energy too. Thanks a million.

Life is definitely back to normal around here after our weekend travels. I woke up to cold temperatures (do you know how much it hurts to put on a hoodie when you have sun burn?), an energetic pup (who, I’m discovering, needs a nail trim like whoa.) and a full day of work, family and friend catch up. I’m unwinding a bit tonight with dinner out but can we just look at the beaches one last time? And that cloudless sky? And my scheme to make this mine one day?

What a weekend, guys! I am so many things right now: exhausted, hungry (nothing new here!), happy from a weekend with friends and wedding festivities, sunburned to lobster status, greasy from a day of travel and ready to crawl into bed with my puppy. All things that seem to happen after a weekend trip for the Ericksons. Thankfully, I’ve got some solid links to keep you busy while I unpack, eat, sleep and stare at pictures from the last few days. The state of California is really onto something, guys. Those views are something else.
This afternoon the Red Head, 8 friends and I are hopping planes to San Diego, plopping ourselves in a house on the beach and toasting to the nuptials of two great friends. Not a bad way to spend a weekend, if I do say so myself. Catch you on Sunday for the full recap if I can pull myself out of the post-vacation blues. No promises. Follow along on Instagram if you’re so inclined!
