Minneapolis, Minnesota

Uptown Style

I was up in my old stomping grounds of Uptown Minneapolis to reunite with some old friends over brunch. Whenever I come back, I feel like I am on one big food tour (whoops). But I just can’t help but default bak to my favorite foods and restaurants in the place I called home for so long.

Minneapolis is a casual city, so jeans and a top are just about perfect for brunch. I love how simply adding a statement belt and some over-the-knee boots can really transform basic pieces into a fabulous outfit.

Let’s talk belts. I go through phases on my obsession of the moment, but no matter what, it always seems to be an accessory. I’ve always loved belts, but have stuck to my safety next of a black one, a brown one, a nude one and a sleek metal one. But investing in quality and statement-making ones really adds a whole new level to any look.

We were in LA for just one day before we flew to Greece and I found myself picking out my Christmas present (hint: 2 very rare and swoon-worthy belts) at What Goes Around Comes Around. If you follow me on Instagram stories, you know exactly what I am talking about. Don’t worry, I have a full blog post coming where I will dish all about it.
