Shop Love

You all know that I love to shop local, and when a local shop is filled to the brim with tons of fun and on-trend items, they make it oh-so easy on me.

Amber Toste, owner of Houndstooth Boutique, is doing just that – both of her store locations (in Eden Prairie and Savage) are always stocked with tempting goodies sure to keep you in style.

Sigourney, who works out of the Eden Prairie location, is sharing with Wild Ruffle readers a few of her favorite trends this season.

Colored Denim

Colored denim is everything for this summer! It is a fun and easy way to get a pop of color into your every day wardrobe. My personal favorite is the Nico Midrise Super Skinny in blue, green, and purple. The wonderful thing about this jean is that it has a great fit and the colors are easily able to transition into fall. Swap your tank tops for a neutral colored chunky sweater and a great pair of boots to rock this bright look into next season.

Oversized Sweaters

We have some amazing oversized sweaters right now at Houndstooth. I can’t get enough of what Wildfox Couture has to offer. The adorable Seeing Stars Lennon Sweater has been seen on celebs such as Jessica Simpson and Alesandra Ambrosio recently and I’m not surprised! It is super light and extremely comfy to wear on cool summer nights. A definite must have.

Printed Blouses

Right now Houndstooth has TONS of gorgeous printed, flowy blouses, like these from Joie. What is great about a printed blouse is that is it easy to wear. Just pair yours with your favorite pair of skinny jeans or a slim trouser for and effortlessly chic look.

Be sure to join us the evening of July 25th from 6-9, at the Eden Prairie Houndstooth for a night of shopping (with a special offer of 20% off!), wine, treats, and jewelry. Anyone like free jewels? A fabulous charm from Stella and Dot will be given to one lucky shopper that night. It’s going to be so much fun – and we’d love to have you there!

If you’re not in the Twin Cities area, you can shop via Facebook, and Stella and Dot online too!

  • So, you met several of our shop friends in our post last week. But we just couldn’t wait to introduce you to some more. Because, oh my goodness, they’re all so fabulous! First up on round two is Heidi, of Vintage Pyro. You’ve probably come across these incredible candles at our last Pop Up Shop,… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About… Some of Our Favorites!
  • I recently went to a soup cook off, and knew I needed a killer recipe to make. I’m a wee bit competitive, so you know I’m going to bring my A game if there’s a prize on the line. Since I had just made my souper tasty (see what I did there? tee hee) white… [Continue Reading]

    Award Winning Wild Rice Soup
  • Our new neighbor, Bob, has the best photography backdrop. It’s old. It’s real. It’s alive with business. It’s down right cool. Now Bob and his sons might think we are complete nutso but we don’t care. Because when you can open up your side door, step into another world and snaps some amazing pics… you just… [Continue Reading]

    Our New Neighbor
  • Right now it’s the season for making merry, and that includes all the fun treats to be had, right? Macy’s was so kind, and sent over a box full of fun. My kids got right to work, baking up some goodies in cute little shapes. A Mason jar packed with all you need to jump… [Continue Reading]

    ‘Tis The Season For Yummy Treats
  • I love Christmas music. Our whole family does. In fact, we start playing it the day after Halloween, and we really don’t play much of anything else until the day after Christmas. I asked my kids the other day which song was their favorite. Sadie’s was “Santa Baby” – the Madonna version. Davis loves “Rockin’… [Continue Reading]

  1. Adorable! I’m loving all those trends right now!

  2. Hey there, you might want to tell the owner of Houndstooth boutique that their site has malware. When I try to open the site I get error/malware messages. It seems to be happening a lot on smaller sites lately so they’re not alone. I love the ikat Joie blouses though — and your blog :)

    • Thanks for the love, Amanda:) I’ll pass along the message to Amber. I’m not getting that notice when I click the link, but your malware detection might be better than mine – yikes!

  3. Hi Every One Please do not go to houndstooth boutiques website its been hacked!

  4. You must also create a portfolio to show your
    creativity as well as imagination to the agencies. What made
    up an HDTV are four rows of LED modules that are laid out on the top,
    bottom, right and left of the television panel. If you keep within the Depth Budget –
    with occasional short-term effects not exceeding 4% positive parallax and 2.
