Minnetonka Blogger Spotlight:  Blair Badge of Love, Blair

Twice a month Minnetonka spotlights the style of bloggers we absolutely love in our new feature the Minnetonka Blogger Spotlight.   This week we’re thrilled to spotlight the effervescent style of Blair Badge the blogger behind Love, Blair.  We love how Blair effortlessly styled three different looks featuring a few of our Minnetonka faves, including the Classic Fringe boot, the El Paso bag and the Tramper Ankle Hi boot.

Check out how Blair describes her style along with a few of her favorite things in our Q&A and be sure to visit Love, Blair for more of Blair’s signature style.

If you could explain your style in one word or phrase what would it be?
“Urban Minimalist” meets “Eclectic Hipster”

Who’s style inspires you?
It depends on the day. Today it’s the Olsen twins. “Full House” aside, those girls make dressing chic look effortless.

What song do you currently have on repeat?
“Myth” by Beach House. Their entire “Bloom” album is on my summer playlist. It’s ah-mazing.

What’s on your summer reading list?
Books on marketing, business, and the like. I’m one of the nerdiest girls you’ll ever meet.

Where is your favorite summer destination?
Cinque Terre, Italy. Two summers ago my friend and I backpacked through Europe. In Cinque Terre we kayaked on the Mediterranean, ate gelato for all three meals and stayed in a B&B overlooking the sea. Pretty much a wanderlust’s dream!

My Minnetonka must-have item is…
My new Tramper Ankle Hi Boots! I can’t stop wearing them!

My Minnetonka Story: Brittany Nelson

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My very first pair of Minnetonka moccasins were given to me by my grandma. I have always been obsessed with moccasins, and so my grandma gave me these awesome off-white boots with tassels. They are pretty old, but still have the Minnetonka stamp on the inside. They are too big for me, but I still adore them.

A couple years after my grandma gave me hers, I found an awesome pair in Nisswa, MN. These were the classic fringe boot, and I still love them today!

I currently own four pairs of Minnetonka moccasins.

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
I don’t know if I have a specific favorite memory, but I love knowing that I own true Minnetonka moccasins.  I take great pride in wearing my Minnetonka moccasins wherever I go.

I also get super stoked when I purchase a new pair!

How far have you and your Minnetonka’s traveled?
Two years ago I purchased the Kilty suede moccasins. I wore them touring all the way from Georgia up to New York while building skateparks and working with youth.

This summer, my moccasins will be traveling to Panama to build another skatepark!

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My Minnetonka moccasins have definitely helped me have a style of my own, one that is unique to me!

Behind the lens at the summer photo shoot

This May, Minnetonka picked out our favorite summer styles and headed out to Lake Minnetonka, MN to shoot on location. Check out some of the behind-the-scenes shots from the shoot!

Wardrobe racks and piles of shoes wait to be packed up to head to the Minnetonka location.
