Get Ready to Party!

by Lauren Setum

Good morning, everyone! TGIF! Today, Salt and Pippa is celebrating the end of the last full work-week before the holidays by featuring local Twin Cities lifestyle magazine, Bow & Arrow. If you’re not familiar with the publication, now’s the time to check it out. This month’s ‘Celebration Issue’ marks the magazine’s first anniversary, and it’s chock full of sensational style, great food, party tips and tricks and much more. It’s truly a delight to read; visit Bow & Arrow’s website for the full issue.

Bow & Arrow’s Directors (L-R: Vanessa, Jaclyn, Laura, and Katie)

Paging through the anniversary/holiday issue, you’ll notice that Bow & Arrow’s directors are decked out in some fabulous dresses from ModCloth. This time of year, one can never have too many dresses to choose from, right? I’ve included a few additional picks from ModCloth below. Which is your favorite?

For a more neutral look, try these pumps by Charles David (available in both black and nude). I know I feature these shoes all the time, but they really are great. A true classic. If you want to add a bit more interest, check out Halogen’s Marla Suede Bow Pointy Toe Pump, the Camille Pump by Coach or the Valencia Pump by Charles David; all are available at Nordstrom. Grab some jewelry with a little sparkle, and you’re all set!

Houndstooth and Antlers

by Lauren Setum

I can hardly believe that Christmas is less than a week away! I could not let the holiday pass me by without doing a New Outfit post to celebrate the season. Whether Pippa liked it or not (emphasis on not), I decided she was going to celebrate, too…as a reindeer…

Outfit details:

Sweater c/o Macy’s MADE Fashion Week Collection    Ankle pant Banana Republic   Black heels Charles David   Houndstooth baseball cap in fuchsia (on sale!!) J Crew   Martini clutch Kate Spade    Necklace Sheer Addiction Jewelry   Fuchsia stud earrings Target   Nailpolish color Trouble Maker by Sally Hansen

If you’re looking to sneak in one more holiday activity, consider dressing up your dog in an antler headband. Or, for a non-pet event, I recommend Macy’s Santaland. Macy’s was kind enough to invite me to their media tour of the display a couple weeks ago, and it was a wonderful time. We even got to sample some new menu items from their revamped restaurant, The Oak Grill. Delicious! If you’re like me, shopping makes you hungry, so take a break from Christmas shopping and grab a bit to eat. Happy holidays!

Fight Like a Girl

by Lauren Setum

Has anyone ever told you that you ‘throw like a girl’? ‘Fight like a girl’? Well, I hope you told them, ‘thank you very much!’ Macy’s was kind enough to send me this shirt from their Ideology Collection. Now through November 1st, Macy’s will donate 5% of the sale price from select items to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I love the message this tee conveys. And it doesn’t have to be just casual wear, dress it up a bit! I paired it with a blazer from Banana Republic (similar blazer here), jeans from Express (similar jeans here) and pumps from Charles David. Oh, and an incredibly fun umbrella from Gina & May.

Classy Camo by KOKOON

by Lauren Setum

There are so many things I love about this wrap dress from KOKOON. This may be cliche, but it really is both comfortable and stylish. You could definitely pack this one in a suitcase and not have to worry about packing an iron, too. That’s always a plus. But my favorite aspect of this dress? The print, to me, is reminiscent of camo without being actual camo. Camo print is definitely a trend you’ll be seeing, and personally, I like it. I paired this twist-on-camo dress with a necklace and cuff bracelet from Sheer Addiction Jewelry and pumps from Charles David…oh, and a cute pup. He wanted to be part of the photo shoot, too!

I had so much fun working with KOKOON on Salt and Pippa’s first new outfit posts this week! They’re a great Minneapolis-based company (I love local!), and I’m so excited to attend their 25th Anniversary Fashion Show this coming Monday at Aria in the North Loop. If you’re in town, be sure to check it out.
