Monday Round Up:Fall Fashion Week + Friends



Annnnnd another weekend in the books? How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good, kind of disproportionately packed but still fun. Those great weekends where some is relaxing but still getting out and about? Yea that was this weekend.


Friday we went over to a friend's house for a movie night. A couple of months ago we made our friend watch the Godfather. She had never seen it, which we basically considered blasphemous so it was time for her to watch. Once that was done it was time for Godfather II so that's what we did. We had dinner and visited together then put the movie on. They have a projector so it's like they are life sized. Life sized Al Pacino #dreamrealized 

Saturday was another pretty easy day. D was golfing in an annual tournament my dad puts on and was going to be gone most of the day. It was a really beautiful day out and I just wanted to get outside and enjoy, because this time of year you don't know how long that is going to last. After I did a little work and worked out I called my mom to see if she wanted to go for a walk. I headed over there to walk her 'hood and hang out. My older sister and her daughter stopped by for a bit too so that was fun to see them and have our kids start to play together, now that Reese can do some things. Reese also wore this shirt I bought and I broke my rule about pink because the message " these GIRLS are the future" was too good.



Sunday was the big day. Fashion Week MN kicked off last Thursday and we were going to hit two shows. I put a look together for myself I was pretty dang proud off ::dusts off shoulder:: so stay tuned for that. The first show we went to was Cliche. It featured clothes from their boutique and two other designers. I have actually always wanted to go there and just have never made it. We shopped around for a bit before the show and so many cute things! Nevertheless, I resisted ;). The show, however, was amazing. Really great pieces and styled beautifully. Afterwards they took the show outside. It is called "Crosswalk at cliche" and that is literally.  They pose on the crosswalk and it was just kind of a cool display.

We had a couple hours to kill after so we grabbed dinner at  Common Roots Cafe, which we had never been. Pleasantly surprised for sure the food was good and friendly service. Very hipster, organic vibe. 

That night we went to a show called Northern Vogue. It was showcasing three local designers and partial proceeds benefited dress for success. I was really excited about this event as it was a bigger one we had to buy tickets for  and I was excited to see some collections. It was a cool vibe and great idea  because it was too levels, but they were running painfully late and there was a huge gap in the show, so it was just kind of frustrating. I did get to run into a fellow blogger lady I met last fall and that was super fun. My friend I went with and I bailed out early cause it's a school night.













So my look for the day  I was so impressed with myself, I won't even lie to you all. I really wanted something cool and unique to blend in all these super cute places. Target a new line call A New Day that is so incredibly cute! I saw this top and knew it would be mine. I was really contemplating how to wear this in a fun way and so I started thinking of burgundy pants when I was putting together my friday post. I searched around but at short notice, I had little options. Enter Loft for the win! Surprisingly cute stuff there this season and very trendy. These sateen cargo pants were just what I needed. Not only the on -trend burgundy but this cool fabric and cut. I felt like this outfit was calling out to me and needed my favorite peep toe booties. I also layered a bunch of delicate jewelry to match the shimmery, translucent nature of the shirt. I feel like I could have added way more bracelts and gone all out but I only had so many that match. I completed teh look with my Kate Spade metallic bag and was ready for a day of fashion!
