Blogger Spotlight: Grace of Camp Patton
Meet Grace, the extremely stylish, witty and busy mother of two adorable kids, with a third on the way, and blogger behind Camp Patton. We love how Grace styled her Minnetonka must-have items for fall including the Classic Driving Moc, Sheepskin Side Zip Fringe Boot and Suede Ankle Boot.
Check out Grace’s Minnetonka style and story in our Q&A, and stop by Camp Patton this week and enter to win a pair of Minnetonka mocs to style this season.
What’s your Minnetonka story?
I recently bought a pair of moccasins for my 2-year-old daughter, Julia, because I was having trouble finding her cold weather shoes that actually stayed on her feet and didn’t require an army of patience to put on a squirmy toddler. I love them because she has a bad habit of taking off her shoes in public and she has yet to do so with her Minnetonka boots which my posterity greatly appreciates. My stylish grandma recently added a pink pair to her collection and bought Julia’s little brother, Sebastian, a pair of his very own.
If you could explain your style in one word or phrase what would it be?
Functional meets try-not-to-look-like-I’m-trying-too-hard. I would love to have the excuse to go all out and rock the latest trends but the reality is that most of my outings are to glamorous places like Costco and Target.
Whose style inspires you? Where do you find your inspiration?
I am such a sucker for fashion and style blogs and love the outfits Kendi, Bex, and Megan wear on their blogs. If I could raid anyone’s closet it would be probably the Olsen twins … two for one.
What’s your favorite trend this season?
How cliche do ankle boots and patterned denim sound? Because I love the look of both.
What song do you currently have on repeat?
I’m always years behind the curve but I’ve been loving Lana Del Ray even though she’s a little depressing … she gets me through my little teeny tiny jogs.
What’s your favorite city and why?
Not that I frequent this place a lot but I love Rome (as in Italy). How is it not everyone’s favorite place? I don’t know.
My Minnetonka must-have item is _____________.
This is tough because I LIVE in my Sheepskin Side Zip Fringe Boots (warmest shoes ever) but I truly love my Suede Ankle Boots because they are insanely comfortable, go with just about everything in my closet, and can be dressed up for a trip to Target or, you know, dressed down for a trip to Target.
