What’s your Minnetonka story?
I still remember seeing the first pair of Minnetonkas I had to have when I was styling a shoot in Arizona.  The model was wearing a pair of white classic moccasins and they were worn in.  I had to have them instantly so I checked them out online and bought my first pair.  They are so worn in now and I still love rocking them.  They are always better with age!

If you could explain your style in one word or phrase, what would it be?

Whose style inspires you?
There are so many women that inspire my fashion these days.  But, I think that Solange Knowles style has really transformed and I love how eclectic it is.

What song do you currently have on repeat?
I just heard Michael Jackson’s song on the radio, ‘The Way You Make Me Feel.’  I loved singing it at the top of my lungs and had to download it onto my phone.  He made the best music ever!  It’s never going to get old.

What’s on your summer reading list?
I’ve got a couple to download onto my iPad/Kindle, here are a few:
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier (They refer to this book on Mad Men!)
White Tiger by Aravind Adiga, about the underprivileged people of India.
Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, I’ve meant to read and watch this forever.  I need to get on it!
Thousand Splendid Sons by Khaled Hosseini, the same author as above.  My sis-in-law highly recommends it.

Where is your favorite summer destination?
Hawaii was my last amazing summer getaway.  It was my “baby-moon” for my first baby who is almost two.  This year I am planning a staycation at a resort in Arizona and taking in all the fun with local getaways.

My Minnetonka must-have item is…
My worn in white Kilty Driving mocs.

My Minnetonka Story: Hannah Darling

What was your first pair of Minnetonka moccasins?
My first pair of Minnetonkas were the Calf Hi 3-Layer Fringe Boot in brown. I wore them for months straight, rain or shine, hiking in the mountains or out on the town.

Where were your first pair of Minnetonkas purchased?
I got my first pair of Minnetonkas on a road trip through the beautiful American Southwest. We stopped at a little gift shop in the middle of nowhere on the way to go camping at the Grand Canyon. I had to have a pair of the Minnetonkas they had lined up in the window. They were the perfect shoes to wear on my very first visit to that magical place. And I’ve worn them every time I’ve returned!

What is your favorite memory involving your Minnetonkas?
I once had an elderly co-worker of mine comment on my Minnetonka Moccasins, saying he wished he could wear stuff like that. I told him he could! He laughed, said I was right and I told him where he could find some moccasins of his own.

How far have you and your Minnetonkas traveled?
I’ve worn my Minnetonkas all over the country, from Yosemite National Park to New York City. Thats what I love about them, they’re so endlessly versatile.

Describe your Minnetonka style.
My Minnetonka style is casual and comfortable. But I love to dress them up too. Traveling, work, play- I pretty much wear them for any occasion.
