Dear Kindred,

Wow! These past few days have been incredible! Here’s an update. I haven’t had a weekend off in a while so I took the opportunity & ran. Not only did I get to spend some quality time with my husband, I was able to check SO many things off my to do list. Raise your hand if you agree that that could be one of the best feelings ever?

Here’s a little glimpse into my to do list. For those of you that don’t know, I am hosting a Fashion Runway Show to benefit the Grand Forks Women’s Pregnancy Center here in Grand Forks! I am working with so many different creative souls to make this come to life that it feels like a dream with all the talent I am surrounded by. I spent my weekend creating with amazing people, fine-tuning details & drooling over all the creative & kind souls out there!

Stay tuned for a breakdown of the event and a ridiculous amount of photos after the show July 13th!  P.S. For those of you that aren’t in the area, you too can donate! Any baby item you can think of will be given directly to the center! How neat! It has been SO cool to work with local people through my blogging platform and literally create something so much bigger than myself. Look forward to a phenomenal runway, florist amazement, breathtaking photos, entertainers & goodies. It’s going to be straight magic.

Guess what?

Lot2029 is going to be participating in the show! And with my love for all things Lot2029, they are sure to blow you away too!

When I saw this leather vest hanging on the rack I knew it had to be mine. I have my fair share of leather jackets but a vest – who knew! You don’t have to be a Harley Davidson chick to rock this because who doesn’t love a little bit of leather. Talk about cool and effortless the moto jacket is comfort, durability and personality all in one. This versatile fabric creates looks for all sorts of people. A leather vest can transform a daytime outfit into an evening look no problem, or turn an ordinary outfit into something extremely extraordinary. Dressed up or dressed down, a leather vest makes a versatile staple for any wardrobe.

By mixing an edgier piece with a more feminine one it can create such a unique dynamic look. Talk about casual street chic. I am a flower junkie if you didn’t already gather & sometimes I feel that I can only wear dresses like this for special occasions. I put my foot down and said no way, how can I wear this in my every day? Well, by adding a leather vest was my number one answer. When pairing together two contrasting pieces it can help bring balance to a look.  A few things to remember when mixing feminine with edgy…

  1. Remember to mix your textures
  2. Pick one dominate style {feminine or edgy} and then pair a dash of the other
  3. Don’t overdo it
  4. Add dark and light colors together
