Textures, Lace & Denim

BlogStyle.jpg

A LoveFeast Style is one that has layers of exquisite detail and texture but it may be just slightly wrinkled and paired with faded, denim jeans. The key is to make sure one of your pieces of clothing, like this shirt above, is detailed, delicious, embellished and finished. That way when you pair it with a tattered pair of jeans, the juxtaposition of the outfit is balanced and beautiful. We are also big fans of adding a bit of organic to the mix, something with a little earth tone to warm up the outfit. This … [Read more...]

Aesop

Aesop Hand Balm http://www.lovefeasttable.com

The first time I came across the Aesop brand, was wandering the skinny streets of Southwark near the Borough Market in London, England.  It was a rainy, bone chilling day, in February, and I saw an interesting sign over a door and sought it out as a shelter.  As I opened the door, I was greeted with softly scented warmth and a cup of tea.  Moments later, after a hand wash at a sink and a warm towel, the shop girl begin to introduce me to the lovely creams and lotions. It wasn't long before I landed on what insists on being a … [Read more...]

London Shopping At Hoss Intropia

boutique1(1)

A couple of months ago I accompanied my husband on a business trip to London.  While he was in meetings I wandered the cobblestone streets around Covent Garden.  The coffee shops, street fashion (lots of plumb, textured black tights and fur) and boutiques brightened my creative spirit even though the weather was similar to our Minnesota chill.  A little down the street after stopping in the flagship Barbour store, which I absolutely had to do since, Kristin's sister-n-law designs their women and children lines I wandered into the … [Read more...]

Dress for the Day~A Color Story

182

Sometimes my outfit inspires my day. But, sometimes my day inspires my outfit. I could be at a museum or a boutique and see a painting or a chair whose colors or pattern stays with me, marinates in my mind and later inspire pieces from my wardrobe to be combined in a new way. My outfit becomes a color story. For example this chair, a peacock feather... a pair of hand knit earrings... a splash of color, even a cell phone cover, can inspire an outfit and tell a color story. And may just … [Read more...]

Style For Thanksgiving

c590x557

Today we're featuring a Thanksgiving style post by our friend and practical fashionista Megan Cobb of FriedOkra. Thanksgiving evokes such a feeling of cozy togetherness, doesn't it? It's also the holiday that just seems to demand a nod to our rustic history. To capture both rustic and cozy, with a touch of celebratory elegance, I've created a look here that combines a bold but warm and comfy pieced Fair Isle sweater (Anthropologie) with a simple, classic camel wool pencil skirt (J. Crew) and added touches of color and … [Read more...]

No Heat Curls

602

We have a good friend, Nish. She blogs over at Nish Happens. Nish is a down to earth, white water rafting, storytelling kinda girl. She's the one you want around your campfire at night. Recently she wrote a post, Four Beauty Tips for Women Who Don't Give a Crap. I love Nish and her ability to cut to the point and get down to business. I had spent time with Nish on a girls weekend retreat last month and I have to be honest, had hair envy. She had long, shiny, chestnut hair with just the right amount of laid back curl. I've … [Read more...]

Beautiful Lady ~ Dress For The Day

Mom Feature

We can multitask several children fed, dressed, lunches made, hair combed and out the door in less than 45 minutes. Have you ever wondered why it takes so much effort to get ourselves ready to go out the door?  Because, it just plain takes some effort.  Lately I have been trying to put a little bit of extra effort into getting "Dress For The Day".  Funny thing is I had already started this effort, when one of my friends, blogger, started this weekly link up of inspiration to encourage us all to put in that extra effort.  I have … [Read more...]

Color Block Polished Nails

Color Block Nail Feature

You are never to old to play with color.  Color is the new black.  That is what I've been saying all summer long.  Lately, I've been a little more adventurous, trying out the color blocking trend on my nails.  I started with the coral and navy shown above. One important thing to keep in mind with this trend is to color block with colors on the opposite side of the color wheel. Without even knowing it, I found out Kristin was doing the same.  I caught this pic via our LoveFeast_Table Instagram account.  Sometimes even BFFs are … [Read more...]
