  1. Ask any Minnesotan. They know. Sweet Martha’s Cookie Jar is a cult classic. Come every August, over the course of two weeks, hundreds of thousands of people flock to St. Paul daily for the Minnesota State Fair to send off summer. (Only Texas can boast a bigger state fair, though Minnesota’s runs for a shorter timespan …

  2. There’s no place like home. Sometimes, it takes a trip away to remember what you have in your own backyard. Now that I’m home with the baby and doing less traveling, I’ve become reaquainted with all there is to offer in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We often get emails from readers from the coasts who find themselves with …

  4. Readers, say hello to Hackwith Design House. This small, Minneapolis-based studio is somewhat of an obsession of mine, and if I’m being honest, this post feels like sharing one of my best-kept secrets with you all.

  5. I KNOW. I’m totally jumping the gun on fall clothing, BUT the cool morning temperatures have me thinking about the jacket I’ve been coveting since February: The Track Parka by Pierrepont Hicks. It’s unisex, the fit is amazing, and it’s American made. While I’ve got Pierrepont Hicks on the brain, here are a few other items …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. On one of the hottest days in Minneapolis, Capture Studios shared this video short featuring Minnesota’s Northwoods, frozen lakes, a little Bon Iver remix, a few local companies and even some local talent, whom some of you may recognize as my boyfriend.

  8. Hot August night. Hot live music. Chilled crayfish and ice-cold aquavit. Hope to see some local W&D readers August 3rd at

  9. What UP, St. Paul? Last Sunday it was undoubtedly NorthernGRADE. Dahlia Brue, Kate Smith and myself hit up the menswear pop-up event and boy- was it hoppin’. I’d like to say first, as a heterosexual female, I was not mad about the plethora of finely dress men at this event. Not at all. Secondly, it was exciting to …

  10. I had the pleasure of hanging with the hot ladies at Parc Boutique a few weeks ago for their social media meet n’ greet. Every time I walk in Parc I leave with fantastic staple pieces that have just the right kind of twist to them. Here are the 4 items I can’t get enough of …

  13. 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.
