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!

  • My husband recently surprised me by saying he had purchased tickets to a Garth Brooks concert. Not growing up a country music fan, I wondered if I would know any of the songs, and whether I’d really enjoy myself at the show. I gotta say – I truly did have fun. Though I didn’t necessarily… [Continue Reading]

    Wisdom From Garth
  • I am generally a fairly happy go lucky kind of girl. I don’t worry about much, and I have a tendency to think that everything will turn out ok in the end. But opening a storefront… it’s a lot of work. It’s pretty darn stressful. I knew it would be. And I readily signed up… [Continue Reading]

    Be Of Good Cheer
  • Lordy Lordy guess who’s…. just kidding. I’m not going to be that dorky! But you get the hint. I’m turning 40 tomorrow!  AAhhh! I don’t mind turning 40. I just don’t like the wrinkles, moodiness and body changes that comes with it. *sigh In honor of my 40th birthday I’m letting you in on 40 random… [Continue Reading]

    Wild about 40 Things
  • This Thanksgiving is a big one for both of the Wild Ruffle girls, as we’ll each be hosting in our homes for the first time! Though Tammy has hosted before, she just moved into her new home (yay!), and will be having her whole crew over there on the big day. And though in previous… [Continue Reading]

    Hosting Made Easy
  • Living out of boxes isn’t as cracked up as I thought it might be. {just kidding, I never really thought that} Don’t get me wrong, I’m giddy with every fiber of my body that we have officially moved into our new house!  Woohoo! But… My life is currently living out of boxes. Trying to stay one step… [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.
