Every time I put on gold-toned jewelry I chuckle a little to myself. I was adamantly against anything gold for YEARS, and couldn’t even bring myself to buy shoes or bags with gold-toned hardware. Times have changed, and so have my weird self-imposed rules. I’m still not a huge fan of shiny gold, but I’ve come to love the look of antiqued brass. And it’s such a subtly warming touch for black outfits. read more

Actual hot weather finally arrived in Minneapolis this week, but most days you’ll still find me layered like this. Why? Air conditioning, people. I swear, everywhere I go I FREEZE. It feels amazing to come inside from a humid 93-degree day and breathe in the cool air, but after about 45 minutes I feel like a popsicle. Anyone else super-sensitive to A/C? read more
