  1. **This post is sponsored by Soma. We received compensation to share a review of the product. All opinions and thoughts about the brand are our own.** A couple weeks ago my friends at Soma sent me a sample of their newest design, the Soma Pitcher. Their carafe became a staple entertaining piece last year and I’ve used it daily for both meetings and dinner parties. …

  2. Let’s talk denim for a little bit, shall we? A wardrobe must-have, I divide my denim into two camps: selvedge and stretch. While I love my selvedge denim for all the reasons it’s great (quality materials, fade, fit, and color), sometimes a girl needs jeans that are a little more… comfortable. But what we give up …

  3. We’re about half way through H&M’s “50 States of Fashion” campaign. Have you guys shopped their site yet? I took this skirt home with me, and I’ve worn it 3 times already.

  5. This is the first of a three-part series made in collaboration with Juut Salonspa. We’ll be talking hair, skincare and spring makeup during the month of April! First up: a new spring up do we’re calling “The Deconstructed Ponytail” Achieving the perfectly tousled ponytail has long eluded me. It seems like a simple trick, but I’ve …

  7. This summer, my friend Collin Hughes stopped by to shoot some proper head shots and general apartment photos for an e-zine interview that ended up falling through. I loved the pictures, so I thought I’d post some of my favorites here. Because the e-zine focused specifically on design and music, we shot my “freelance studio” (that …

  8. This post was written for Minnesota Monthly’s TC Style Blog: Mark my words, 2013 will bring the return of minimalism to mainstream fashion. While ever present on the runway year after year thanks to minimalist powerhouses such as Jil Sander, Maison Martin Margiela and Calvin Klein, finding unembellished clothing from mass retailers has proven to be …

  9. Sock it to ya. Winter footwear can be a bit monotonous, especially when you live in a part of the country that remains frozen for a good portion of the year. Socks, while often the least exciting accessory, can be an excellent way to add a little spunk to a look. In fact, menswear embraces fun socks …

  10. I made a little cameo appearance in Lily & Violet’s lookbook this fall. Some of the pieces I wore were really cute, specifically this jacket. Thanks to the talented Canary Grey for making me feel comfortable in front of the camera and to Style Architects for making me look pretty. They’re so fun to work with.

  11. While in San Fran for a work trip, the lovely Anne Sage and I got together for our first “in person” meeting. I’ve been cyber-stalking Anne for years and she is as funny, generous and creative in person as she is online. Anne asked me to be part of Nikole Herriot’s fantastic series, “for the love …

  13. I was so excited when one of my favorite retailers, Club Monaco, invited W&D to participate in their monthly Style Muse series. Their August line is all about mixing and matching basics with contrasting patterns, so each of us wore an outfit showing off how they could be combined. What I love most about this line …

  14. A few weeks ago I asked my friends Melissa and Faith to a proclaimed “App-tastic” Monday night at Eat Street Social. I hadn’t been and Melissa couldn’t say enough great things about her experiences there. She snapped a few photos of our feast and was kind enough to write a little review of the joint. If …

  15. Four-eyed since the 3rd grade, eyewear has been my staple accessory long before stilettos and statement necklaces. When oversized frames waltzed into trendy-ville, my inner nerd jumped for joy. In fact, the resurgence of bold eyewear has brought a huge range of styles, colors and shapes to play with. I had the chance to try out …

  16. One of my favorite retailers ASOS.com asked me to participate in a little style feature to kick-start summer. A few bloggers and myself picked out a dress and styled it in our own way. Check out all the looks here. You can also shop what we’re wearing, and enter to win some great prizes, like a …

  17. Who wants to talk skincare?? I DO! I’ll admit to being a bit of a skincare junkie, so when I went in for a truly amazing Juut facial with Christen Hackett a few weeks ago, I had a ton of questions. She was kind enough to talk me through what I should be doing to keep …

  18. Happy Friday, all. I’m excited to share a few rings from my guest post over on the Etsy Blog today. It was so much fun to pull together a round up of gorgeous engagement rings. There is so much variety here and a ring for every kind of budget. I’m curious- have any of you purchased …

  20. My friend Hailee is a true inspiration. She’s traveling to Costa Rica for a family wedding this May and thought she’d use the opportunity to do some good while she was there. Her goal is to bring 100 children’s books with her to help start a public library in the small town of La Virgen. You …

  21. When I first clicked on the 31 Bits website, I was so taken aback by the gorgeous styling that I almost missed the amazing story behind it. In fact, 31 Bits was founded by 5 socially-conscious college students with a passion for empowering women to rise above poverty. During a trip to Northern Uganda in 2007, …

  22. Thanks to MPLS St. Paul Magazine for including me in their Best of 2011 issue. I’m honored!

  23. * This giveaway is now closed * Readers, I’m so thrilled to host the first giveaway on Wit + Delight.
