I wore this to teach my community ed class on Monday, and had a blast chatting with my lovely students. Thanks to everyone who came out!

The dress is a new purchase from my recent Chicago trip, and hails from an amazing boutique called Skandal that specializes in clothes, shoes, and a few accessories from Scandinavia. AND the proprietor is a Minnesota native, so we ended up chatting and bonding and plotting to grab coffee and talk fashion next time I’m in town. A great experience, and a fantastic purchase. This comfy, flattering sweater dress is bound to become a fall and winter staple. read more

Husband Mike and I swung by the main drag of nearby town Wayzata to check out the shops, and did so on a day that was making every living thing cry out for heat-related mercy. Perhaps you can tell by the bright, bright sunshine that it was a completely cloudless day. I was incredibly grateful for this breezy cotton, washable dress! Gah. The heat. It hottens me so. read more
