Location: Minneapolis, MN
Minneapolis is a city that is defined by its river, the Mississippi, and you can’t go far without coming across or going across it in one way or another. During college in St. Paul, I spent nearly everyday walking up and down River Boulevard in Highland Park dreaming of my life ahead of me.Being near the river is therapeutic for me but in the past year with the busyness of work and life I haven’t gotten to be near it enough. This post was shot in St. Anthony, which is an adorable part of the city just across the river from Downtown Minneapolis. One can stroll nearby the river, grab a drink with friends at the many cafes, and enjoy killer views of the Stone Arch Bridge and the Guthrie Theatre. I’m ashamed to say that I hadn’t been to St. Anthony before this summer but I will definitely be going again!
The look that I chose is perfect for a warm evening along the water. This Chicwish Skirt is light, airy, and I love how it flares out to give an ultra-chic and very flattering silhouette. Chicwish is a company that I recently fell in love with because of their affordable, feminine, and classic style. I am a lover of skirts and adore Chicwish’s many options for seasonal transition pieces, which means I have more excuses to wear them well into the brisk Minnesota fall and winter. Madewell never disappoints and this Cross-Front Crop Top may have finally made me a believer in the style. The pairing of the skirt and top make for an easy outfit for a great night out with the girls or a date night on a patio. With summer winding down, I will take any chance I can get to pull out the crop top and sandals and explore gems like St. Anthony.
