10 x 10 Challenge

 

We were inspired by Lee Vosburgh of the Style Bee’s 10 x 10 Challenge, that encourages individuals to take a break from shopping and find creative ways to style clothing they already have in their closet–essentially creating a mini capsule closet of just 10 items! See what 10 essential pieces Lisa picked for her capsule.

Follow along this week on our Instagram stories to see how Lisa creates a week’s worth of outfits with just these 10 pieces!

Blue Skies Ahead | Styling for a MN Spring

Basics, Core Collection, Limited Edition

Ask any Minnesotan. Spring makes it really hard to plan your outfits. Just last week it was in the 60’s, and then we received several inches of snow within the next 36 hours. You can’t safely “move the winter clothes to the basement” until mid June! This unpredictable weather just means we have to get creative with layers and find pieces that accommodate all weather situations.

We love how our Limited Edition Tabitha Tunic Dress looks when unbuttoned on top and worn over a t-shirt or sweater on colder days. The Tabitha Tunic Dress can also be worn completely unbuttoned as a long, light jacket. If it’s a nicer day, roll up the sleeves and pair with a pair of sandals. We’re biased, but really think the INNE Maria Mule and Lana Slide go with any outfit.

We’re also really loving our HDH Basics: Easy Pant lately. Its elastic waist makes for a comfy and easy bottom, and its delicate striped rib fabric and drape are flattering on a range of body types. Wear with our ribbed HDH Basics: Fitted Tee for a matching ribbed ensemble, or pair with a top such as our Limited Edition Meredith Button-Up for a more elevated, out-and-about look.

Trip to Red Wing with Emma Khan!

Core Collection

 

Our friend, Emma Khan, is sadly our last feature in the series we’ve been doing the past couple months where we have women style our recent Spring Summer 2019 Collection with pieces from their own wardrobes. We hope you’ve been having fun getting to know each woman and picking up style tips, tricks, and inspiration along the way! For this last shoot, we made the drive to Red Wing to capture Emma’s favorite Spring HDH pieces against the green and hilly backdrop–a nice little retreat from our industrial St. Paul studio and surrounding area…

Emma’s favorite piece from the collection is the Button-Up Bow Top in Cream. “It’s so dreamy! But then also practical. The sleeves don’t get in the way like other longer sleeved ruffled blouses do. My other favorite is the adjustable strap striped dress. It is a perfect summer sundress and breathes quite well. It was hot that day in Red Wing!”

Colleen Styles Spring Collection!

Core Collection

Meet Colleen! Colleen has worked with us in the past, but it’s rare that you’ll see her face since she’s usually behind the camera! Colleen is the talented photographer behind 2nd Truth Photography. Per our tradition this season of asking women to style pieces from our Spring Collection, Colleen put together several outfits for us, ranging from casual tomboy to chic and sophisticated. We especially love her look with the French Seam Easy Wide-Leg Pant and Lapel Open Jacket Top that can be worn both as a blazer or a blouse when overlapped and tucked in.
