I was so excited to set up our pop-up shop in Minneapolis last week- even though it was a 24 hour whirlwind trip, it's always nice to visit my old stomping grounds. I really do miss the "Minnesota-nice"ness of the Twin Cities.
I set up our trunk show at my absolute favorite boutique, Parc Boutique, located in Northeast Minneapolis. Known for its laid-back chic style, you can always go there for great basics and on-trend clothes. Owner, Thao Bui Nyugen, has impeccable taste, so its no surprise that the selection at the boutique is always amazing. I came out of there with a great coral colored Olivaceous blouse and my absolute fav for the summer, a pleated mint midi skirt - sooo cute.
During my set up, I got to chat with Parc employee, Melissa - such a sweetie - you MUST say hi to her if you stop in - she's great!
I always love walking around NE Minneapolis -
its known for its great shopping, great restaurants/bars, and its especially known
to be home of some of the most artistic people in the twin cities.
St. Mary's Basilica is always so eye catching when you drive in Minneapolis
This is one of the most well known pieces in the sculpture garden - the cherry in the spoon
The weather was perfect on the day of set up - it was a beautiful spring day with tons of lilacs in bloom all over town
i of course had to stop by Bread and Chocolate in St. Paul where they have the BEST chocolate croissants i've ever had - i'm no expert, but i HAVE had my share of chocolate croissants. lol
I also stopped by for a quick bite at Cafe Latte on Grand Ave in St. Paul (I've had plenty of dates with my hubby - pre-wedding days here :) ) I love getting their spread platter

And to end the day, i was able to stop by my other go-to place in the twin cities, The Tea Garden
