chloe + isabel collab

when friend and rep for chloe and isabel, emma mcelroy, reached out to us for a collab, we were so excited. the jewelry, especially in her collection here, is stunning, unique, and timeless. the items are reasonably priced and quite durable. some of our favorites were this choker, these earrings, and this bracelet. (along with so many more!) we were able to try them on, look through each piece in person,  and have some fun pictures to prove it!

linden hills

today we enjoyed a quiet morning at one of minneapolis’ cutest spots: linden hills! first we grabbed coffee and pastries at rose street patisserie¬†and got some work done (we’ve also concluded that senior slides are not a real thing). then we set off to walk through some of the small boutiques around the area, including honeyshine and the best children’s book store, wild rumpus.

here’s some pictures from our rainy fall morning:

since we are back in school, we can’t promise a creative post everyday, but definitely have lots in store. stay tuned !!

thanks for following along this summer !

through the lens

today, i, jane, got to photograph a close friend to celebrate her senior year of high school. it was fun to see her through my lens and let her work the camera; different from our usual time spent in school or on the lacrosse field. here are some fun shots I got of her.

photos were taken at lake harriet and the lake harriet rose gardens in mpls.
