red hot

Grab some coffee and let's catch up! 
Sharing a few updates from the past week for this quick hump day hello!

When my alarm blared at 5:00 last Saturday morning, I almost said "screw it" to my 7-hour volunteer shift at Muckfest, but I'm happy I made the hour-long haul to the Somerset, WI, event site. Zip-lining and belly-crawling through the muddy obstacle course (and tailgating the afternoon away after) looked so FUN, and I definitely want to participate next year.

Still dreaming about last weekend's gourmet popcorn and All the Single Ladies tequila cocktail at cozy Parlour. My love affair with the North Loop is in full effect.

It's sad to see summer go, but the amazing slow-cooker turkey chili I threw together on Sunday with football buzzing in the background was fall perfection. Planning to add a petite pumpkin to my coffee table for some seasonal flair ASAP!

I dressed up and hit up the Foshay last night for Minnstafashion, a Minnesota Fashion Week event featuring complimentary wine and the chance to win swanky prizes for creating the best Instagram caption for styled looks. I wish there had been a runway or a bit more action, but still—not bad for a Tuesday. Catch more of the #FWMN fun with this guide.

Red is HOT for fall! I love how InStyle spinoff publication Your Look styled the color with winter whites for pretty, Snow White-inspired contrast. It was 80 degrees when we shot the below photos, but as the weather cools down, I'll swap my tank for a sleek white sweater to mimic the magazine feature. Make a more subtle statement by carrying a cherry clutch or slipping on garnet leather gloves!
