What’s your Minnetonka story?
My Minnetonka story begins in 2007 with a pair of cognac Tramper boots in my shopping cart on Piperlime.com. I never ordered them myself, but my mother surprised me by getting them for my seventeenth birthday! The comfort level is unsurpassed, and the fringe + lacing detail adds the perfect amount of visual interest to basic jeans and a tee.
If you could explain your style in one word or phrase, what would it be?
“Classic comfort.” If a piece of clothing isn’t comfy, I won’t buy it. I go for pieces that are simple and timeless, sometimes with a loud print or special detail that will take it to the next level.
Whose style inspires you?
I’m always inspired by Whitney Port. Her style has evolved so much since her first few days in the spotlight. I love how she styles her looks.
What song do you currently have on repeat?
The song I have on repeat right now is Autumn Tree by Milo Greene.
What’s on your summer reading list?
My must-reads this summer are I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron and The Mansion of Happiness by Jill Lepore. I am a huge nonfiction fan!
Where is your favorite summer destination?
When I lived in Washington state, I loved visiting beaches along the Pacific coast. Now that I’m stuck in the center of the country, I love visiting Lake Calhoun here in Minnesota! It has beautiful beaches and plenty of surrounding entertainment.
