Blogger Spotlight: Indiana Adams of Adored Austin
We’ve always adored the style of Austin based blogger Indiana Adams and were excited to find out that her husband Chris, son Jude and daughter Caroline each have a favorite pair of Minnetonka mocs. Check out our Q&A with Indiana and see her adorable (and very stylish) family spending a weekend in their favorite Minnetonka styles!
What’s your Minnetonka story?
A Minnetonka addict since elementary school, I clearly remember wearing white Thunderbirds with everything. Now well into adulthood, I’ve since expanded my Minnetonka collection. True story: I auditioned for Twilight wearing a pair of Minnetonka boots and got two call-backs, which were the biggest auditions of my life. Every time I wear my fringe boots something lucky happens to me.
My Minnetonka love has trickled down to the rest of my family: my son got a pair ages ago and I’ve already picked out two pairs of Minnetonka mocs for my daughter.
Chris has been talking about getting a pair of moccasins for as long as I’ve known him, but because he works a corporate job, he’s not entirely sure traditional moccasins would fit in with his work culture. Luckily Minnetonka has styles (like the Chukka boot!) that give guys like Chris the best of both worlds.
If you could explain your style in one word or phrase what would it be?
multifarious/hilarious (my style is eclectic, but I always try to wear at least one item that would make a stranger smile)
Whose style inspires you?
I’m mainly inspired by nostalgia. I love things that remind me of my childhood or my grandma. I find a lot of inspiration in old yearbooks and photographs. I’m also an unashamed Pinterest addict, so I find a lot of great bloggers through that and get inspired by what others are putting together.
What song do you currently have on repeat?
I’ve been listening to “Hey Jude” pretty much constantly since Oct. 2010
What’s your favorite city and why?
Perhaps I’m a tad biased, but I think Austin, Texas is one of the best cities in the United States. It’s a city large enough to never be bored in but small enough to run into someone you know every time you go to the grocery store. Plus everyone here has a great sense of bohemian/ rocker style.
My Minnetonka must-have item is… Anything with fringe!
