sometimes i just like to keep it simple & dress like a man. trousers, pleats, button-ups can be oh so fashionable (and comfortable). today's outfit was inspired by one of my SFA girls, Mel-- and no, she is not a man or manly in any type of way (lol), but she wore a pair of similar trousers to Friday's photoshoot and paired it with the perfect sheer button-up. thanks to my SFA girls for being a daily source of fashion inspiration. xxo

olive green button up- stole from dad's closet, silk trousers- express, rings & black genie pants (underneath for extra warmth)- f21, greige (grey & beige) pumps- calvin klein, belt - h&m, faux fur- free people, glasses- chanel, bag- from tj maxx from a long time ago (wanna-be balenciaga motorcycle bag)

two fourteen eleven

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! i've been a bad blogger, i know. :( quite ironic (alanis morrissette would probably agree) seeing as how i now have the essentials necessary to make consistent posts. :/

in celebration of st. valentine, the boyf & i perused the Walker Art Center while sipping soy chais, only to be told that a) drinks are not allowed in the galleries & b) in certain galleries, neither is my SLR.. all-around failures yesterday lol. anyhow, afterwards, we went home & got ready for dinner at Meritage, a cute little French restaurant, predominantly known for its' seafood. it was delish, but i'll let the pictures speak for themselves. most importantly though was the fact that this occasion was cause for, not one but TWO fabulous outfits. yaye. FYI: this post is going to be picture-heavy, it should make up for the 2 weeks i've lacked in posting, happy loading! xxo

my two loves (and boyf's debut on the blog): tekky & charlie
a piece from 'a shot in the dark' gallery

the view of dt minneapolis from the walker
boyf + modeling chops
colorful little lounge 

probably can't tell but i bought this new nail polish topcoat that makes your nails matte versus the usual glossy, dark navy blue + matte topcoat = blue suede nails 
seriously though.

some accidents turn out beautifully (i mean that in every way possible LOL)
tuna tatarte taco & oysters meritage: i don't usually like oysters but this was perfexion, none of that fishy business
clams & snails (my first time) = surprisingly appetizing 
the winner of the night: the sturgeon
tekky had the fluke

definitely coming back for more of this..
a little tipsy off champagne, oui?
the boyf's little valentine's day rhyme <3
