Featured Brand: Nally & Millie

This week, I’m excited to feature a brand that’s made right here in the USA: Nally & Millie.  It’s a line that has perfected the art of the comfortable-yet-stylish top.  Too often, drapey shirts simply have too much fabric and end up looking bulky, but Nally & Millie’s outrageously soft and lightweight jersey (seriously, you have to come in and feel this stuff for yourself) and sweater fabrics hang just right.  They come in some great colors, too – rich heathered purple, a gorgeous multicolor burnout, and plenty of basic black and white – and the swingy silhouettes balance well with skinny/straight jeans or leggings.  Even better, Nally & Millie tops make for an easy transition into fall – it’ll be here before you know it!

1. Grey V-Neck, $48.  Necklace, $32.

2. Fitted multicolor burnout tee, $58.  Scarf, $20.

3. Blue batwing top, $58.  Necklace, $50.

4. Grey floral sweater, $84. Coin “Grateful” necklace, $42.

Back to school!

Can you believe it’s already time for Back to School?  With only a couple of weeks of summer left (enjoy them while they last!), it’s time to be thinking about one of the best parts of going back to school – new gear!  Here are some of my favorites for fall, all available at the RP!

1.  Emilie Sloane Wallet – $15.  These are perfect for holding St. Olaf or Carleton student ID’s!  There’s also a key ring and a zip pocket for your cash, debit card, and whatever else.  Plus they come in tons of great colors and patterns!

2. Tokyo Bay Watch – $60.  Never lose track of time with a cute watch on your wrist!  We’ve got a great selection of colors and wristbands to choose from.  This sunny yellow is my favorite!

3.  Ugg Wooden Clog – $140.  These clogs are amazing.  Love the leather detail across the top, the studs along the base, and the rich wooden sole.  So cute with wide-leg jeans!

4. Kerisma Poncho Sweater – $78.  This sweater is perfect for cozy fall days.  Try pairing it with some dark skinny jeans and boots!  And isn’t that toggle detail so sweet?

5.  iT Jeans Skinny – $68.  Now a classic, the dark-wash skinny jean goes with just about anything!  There are no bells and whistles here – just a basic, 5-pocket, minimalist pair of jeans.  It’s a beautiful dark blue wash too – easy to dress up or down.

6.  Ellington Eva Tote in Navy – $209.  From personal experience, I can attest to the wonders of this bag.  It easily holds a couple of notebooks and a folder or two, has great inner pockets for pens and pencils, cell phone, and wallet, and comes with a totally practical cross-body strap.  I have it taupe, but this navy is so eye-catching!  Come and see for yourself!

7.  Converse sneakers – $45.  Always a classic!

Hope to see you soon at the RP!

Back to school!
