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!
thank you emma!
although it was freezing up there, nothing beats an up close and personal view of downtown mpls! here’s some photos taken from the foshay tower observatory.

we first found out about jen gotch through blogger bri emery of designlovefest. later we followed jen on instagram and quickly became obsessed. jen gotch is the woman behind ban.do! for those of you who have not yet been blessed with the pleasure of hearing about ban.do, it is a gorgeous, spunky gift and fashion accessory shop. you need to check it out!! not only is jen a social media queen, but her snapchat (username: jengotch) stories are the funniest thing. seriously, you need to follow her. also, go look through jen’s website as it is officially the coolest and most creative personal website we have ever seen.
and now here’s some of the cute stuff we love over at ban.do:
also, check out jen’s interview with forbes … they mention that jen wears roller skates around the office and we are thinking, hmm can we work there?!
