I wore this outfit on a recent road trip and used it to conduct a minor experiment. I loved the polished look of the tunic, and flats felt like the wrong footwear choice for some reason. The road trip was long – 8 hours – and I spent most of it sitting in the car chatting with HM. Could heels work? They could. Especially since, on arrival, we ate, watched a movie, and crashed. No long walks for the entire day. Probably won’t become my default, but since my own comfort priorities are midsection-related it was interesting to find that I could wear heels and still be perfectly comfy for a long car ride. read more

So, you all loved “A Mighty Wind,” right? I’ve probably watched it a dozen times and it still makes me giggle. And I’ve stolen the term nowtro from it and forced it into regular use, despite the bewildered looks it earns me. And this outfit is extremely nowtro: Retro silhouette and styling, but a very modern print mix. I can just imagine my grandma’s reaction if I told her I was wearing polka dots and windowpane print together. read more

I wore this to check out a fabulous art installation called Playing the Building. The project was the brainchild of David Byrne – a personal hero of mine – and has traveled from Stockholm to London to New York and now to Minneapolis. Essentially, Byrne hooks a vintage organ up to the pipes and structure of a building and the public can play the organ, and therefore the building. IT IS SO COOL and all of you Twin Cities folks should check it out! read more
