In honor of the upcoming holiday, I thought I'd dress up in the appropriate colors. I'm riding a little kid's bike btw - also very appropriate.

We had our second annual rooftop concert at work yesterday where Chastity Brown graced us with her presence and amazing voice. And don't even get me started on the hair (see background). The friends/co-workers growing out of my head are: Sherry, Lilly & Beth.

Great Gams.

The gals over at Arrow turned me onto this women's aftershave and I've been hooked ever since. I'm the laziest person I know and this replaces having to slather lotion onto my legs every morning now that it's the season of leg-baring. I usually spray on immediately after getting out of a hot shower and in the morning before I leave for the day. It keeps my legs moisturized, soft, supple and is just ultra refreshing. Oh, and it smells delicious - seriously, the secret to stellar summer stems. You can purchase here or locally at Arrow in North Loop.

Now that you've been let in on my secret for summer-ready legs, read up on my summer style tips here.

Black & Yellow.

peplum top: F21 | shorts: AE | heels: Zara | necklace: Zara | sneakers: Converse chucks | watch: Michael Kors

Hope all my hood friends appreciate the Wiz Khalifa reference. I'm holding chucks to show you one outfit, two ways. I always pack a pair of one of my many chuck taylors to work for when I have to run errands during lunch - sometimes I choose function over fashion. Luckily for this particular outfit, both options compliment it nicely. 

PS. note the accidental 'stache and beard in the second to last photo. #holler

90's Baby.

lace dress: Mink Pink (thrifted) | hat: Midnorth Mercantile | leather moccasins: Itasca via Arrow | tote: I AM MPLS c/o Sarah Edwards | crossbody: vintage Coach

Feelin' a little 90's today with this throwback baby doll dress, just missing a pair of doc martens to make it complete. Proud to say that almost everything in this post is bought locally, locally grown or supports something local. #shoplocal

I witnessed the return of Voltage Amplified (fashion show/concert duo) over the weekend, recap on that to come!

City Slicker.

blazer: H&M | white button up: Zara | denim: random (old) | crossbody: vintage Coach Classics | pumps: Rachel Comey via Arrow | rings: H&M | I Am Minneapolis tote: via I AM MPLS c/o Sarah Edwards

An example of an essential day-to-night outfit. Appropriate for the office (well, my office anyway) and perfect for after work drinks - add in personal touches such as: boy cut destroyed denim, leaving the last few buttons on my blouse unbuttoned (a la Kate Moss or Erin Wasson), minimalist rings and edgy shoes.
