summer outfit + local events

today, i (jane) am featuring some new summer finds and great summer events around the minneapolis area.

my floral embroidered shirt is from h&m. ripped light wash jeans from urban outfitters. these amazing bamboo brand shoes that were on sale at francesca’s for only $9.98 !! the best deals there can only be found in-store but the online sale section has some great options too.

as laura and i prepare to move out east in just a few short months, we want to take full advantage of everything our beloved city has to offer. so here is what is happening around mpls this summer:

music and movies at the lake harriet band shell

minneapolis farmers market

first ave lineup

basilica block party 2017

stone arch bridge festival 2017

minneapolis aquatennial 2017

crave’s rooftop movie mondays

 

happy summer !

happy thurs!

it’s almost the weekend! i, laura, plan on soaking up some sun, running around lake harriet, and catching up on some sleep.

i recently read the best book called isn’t it pretty to think so by jake miller that i would totally recommend!! it’s kind of a bildungsroman that also features great imagery and unique thoughts that cause you to question life as you know it. i could not put it down!

vsco_050117.jpg

i’ve also been enjoying abstract: the art of design on netflix. it’s a very tastefully done documentary series where each episode features a different artist in very diverse fields of art. it is seriously inspiring, interesting, and amazing- check it out!

as for songs, i’ve been listening to the following: bound to you// jocelyn alice, love// kendrick lamar, how i want ya// hudson thames, doing good// milky chance, wicked// mansionz, and shot down// khalid.

also! i turned 18 a couple days ago. 17 was a great year for me, full of tough decisions and personal growth. 17 brought me fun concerts: broods, rock the garden, børns, trips to new york, naples, miami, and LA, college decisions, late nights of studying, experimenting with writing & photography, memories with family and friends, and a greater understanding of who i am. i am excited for the future and feel very content with the past- every day really does matter and i hope to make them all count as an 18 year old.

thanks for reading! take care & find some sunshine!

concert review: mpls jingle ball

on monday afternoon, i, jane, realized that (one) i had nothing to do in the evening and (two) that some of my favorite arstists were playing at kdwb’s jingle ball later that night. i bought two tickets an hour before the show and called up a good friend to join me.

we went in with zero expectations but finished the night pleasantly surprised with the performances we heard. some stand outs were alessia cara’s song scars to your beautiful about loving your self for who you are, g-eazy’s classic crowd pleasers, and, my personal favorite, the backstreet boys !

here are some pictures from the night:

dress here.

thanks to maggie, maddie, and molly for a fun night.

have a great holiday, everyone! enjoy your family, friends, and some yummy food.

concert review: lacrae

last night (wednesday) i, jane, went to see lacrae on his destination tour at first ave in minneapolis. it was such an inspiring couple of hours full of pure joy and unity after such a long day in america. between each song, he spoke powerful words about so many different topics. lacrae spoke from the heart about the race discrimination he’s seen this year, how everyone should be unashamed to be exactly who they are, have faith, nobody is perfect and there is no place where mistakes don’t happen and there is no place that doesn’t need hope; he stressed the importance of loving and uniting as one human body. lastly, he has partnered with food for the hungry, a non profit that sponsors meals for children in uganda and encouraged everyone in attendance to donate to this important cause. and above all, his music is amazing. personal favorite song: all i need is you.

thank you to maddie and zuva for letting me crash their night out!

jen gotch of ban.do!!

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.

jen has also become a very well known photographer. we love her defaced polaroids (below) and her photostrips (more on her cool website):
