Wore this on a day when we had alternating bouts of lovely sunshine and torrential rain, and this photo was taken during a quick break between downpours. Had I known I’d be risking a drenching every time I went outside, I might’ve worn a little less white. Serves me right for not checking the forecast. Like virtually all Minnesotans, I monitor the weather religiously during the winter months. But during our woefully brief summer, I often forget because, hey, what’s the worst that could happen? Heat? Wind? A little rain? We do get the occasional tornado but for the most part it’s calm, clear, and nothing that means I have to pile on the layers or add an extra half-hour to my drive time. My laxness means I sometimes wear white on rainy days. Good thing I remembered my nude underthings and spent most of my day inside. read more

I’ll admit to stealing the idea of pairing sour colors with black and white stripes, but I had fun putting my own twist on the look. This handmade skirt is such fun to wear. Sturdy and a little stiff, but lined with soft silk and in my all-time favorite silhouette! read more
