Ice Skating.

I do not know why, exactly, but there is something very magical about ice skating. The warm laughter and friendly smiles. Which bring a great deal of joy to my heart! I love being bundled up in warm hats, mittens, scarves, and multiple layers of socks while being surrounded by crisp cool air! I especially love ice skating at night, when the moon and stars are out for a visit. Skating on a river lined with street lights and Christmas lights. There is something so old fashioned and lovely about ice skating that just steals my heart every time!! Sure my toes may be cold, but that is what friends and hot coco are for!!

For my sister’s 17th birthday my family and I went out to eat at the Cheesecake Factory [YUM] then we all went out ice skating. It was a very fun evening! This is what I wore!

Kelsey and I have decided that our “together post” would be posted every Monday, so if those are your favorites, be sure to check back every Monday!! This is actually what we wore yesterday. We both spent our Sunday morning the way we love to; at Aster, in Minneapolis. The atmosphere is great, the food is delicious, the people are wonderful and the live band, Patty and the Buttons is always so much fun! Every Sunday morning at Aster is a lovely one. If you live close by, we highly recommend it!

Craft Day.

Well, we’ve decided that instead of simply telling people to check out our blog, we’d like to hand them something tangible.  We’re working on watercoloring our business cards as I write this!  (Well, Little Mary is, at least.  I’m obviously posting right now.) Here’s what we wore today.

  • Earrings- Fossil
  • Scarf- Old Navy
  • Coat- American Eagle
  • Shirt- Target, Xhilaration
  • Skirt- Anthropologie, Maeve
  • Leggings- Anthropologie, Eloise

Winter’s Finery.

Little Mary and I both feel strongly about the seasons: their changing, the feelings we associate with them, their colors, the clothing we wear.  While it hasn’t been feeling much like winter around here, we’ve still stuck to our typical wintery palettes.  It feels appropriately festive.

On Little Mary: feathered headband, vintage; earrings, Fossil; sweater, boutique; skirt, Anthropologie; socks, Target; boots, vintage Guess.

On Kelsey: dress, vintage; belt, Target; tights, HUE; shoes, Target.

Winter-at least, sort of.

Here we both are standing outside of Four Seasons, a dance studio in Minneapolis.  We wanted a nice, wintery picture to commemorate the season.  Somehow, however, Mother Nature has tricked us all- Minneapolis is experiencing spring-time weather in what is supposed to be the absolute dead-of-winter.

Winter Weather? Maybe it'd feel more realistic if we had some snow.

On Kelsey: white hat, Old Navy; grey coat, vintage; gloves, gift; tights, HUE; boots, American Living.

On Little Mary: brown hat, Nine West; earrings, Fossil; burgundy scarf, Target; green coat, Old Navy; gloves, Target; pants, Calvin Klein; boots, Fossil.
