Blogger Spotlight: Laura of Roots and Feathers
Whose style inspires you?
I’m very inspired by the fashion of the 60’s and 70’s. The earthy flowerchild pattern, the textures like velvet and fringe, the free flowing styles, etc. I also love more urban bohemian styles usually seen on Kate Moss and Mary Kate Olsen.
My favorite clothing designer and style icon would have to be Novella Royale. I’m completely in love with everything they make. Pinterest has been a great source of inspiration. Especially from the everyday outfits you see through people’s outfit posts. Everyday street style is just as inspiring to me as fully thought out lookbook images.
What’s your Minnetonka story?
I have been a forever fan of Minnetonka, but have only actually owned a pair for a few years now. I got a pair of the Back Zipper boots from a friend and fell in love. Fringe and suede are two of my favorite things, so it was only natural. Since I first laid eyes on the El Paso mocs I feel like I found my personality in a shoe. In a way, since newly owning these mocs, I feel like my Minnetonka journey is just beginning. Like I have just found a new best friend that I can’t wait to go on coffee dates, concerts, and long car rides through the countryside in!
If you could explain your style in one word or phrase what would it be?
Bohemian, free spirited with a love for layers.
What song do you currently have on repeat?
I have played the new self titled Civil Wars album to death since it came out.
My Minnetonka must-have item is…the El Paso Moc.
What’s your favorite city and why?
I have not done a huge amount of traveling in my life… but my favorite place I’ve ever visited has to be either Olympia Washington or Austin Texas. I visited Olympia when I was about 20 years old and fell in love with the beautiful community that was there, the farmers markets and the thrift shops. Austin is only two hours away from home, but it will forever have a place in my heart for its wonderful thrift shops, Jo’s coffee, Bouldin cafe and great music.
