    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Fall Fashion: Back to School

Doing some back to school shopping for fall?  This season is bringing lots of new fashion trends to the forefront, so as you go about shopping for some clothes to kick off the year, it may be of help to know what styles are “in” and what types of outfits to expect when you head to the stores.  Be courageous and try some new looks this year.  You never know if you can work them until you try!  Some of the most popular looks for this fall include:

Color Blocking:

This look refers to wearing outfits, shirts, and dress suits that have clashing block patterns on them.  Teal, pinks, and blues are very popular, as well as neons clashing with neutrals.  This is a play on the fashions of the 80s, where clashing colors and neon were the norm for everyday wear.

Spring 2012 Trend: Cheerful Color-Blocking (from Glamour.com)
Busy and Bold Prints
Wearing prints that are floral, animal, or abstract in nature is a common trend for the season.  This trend has carried on for the last couple of years now and remains strong for this year.  Pair your printed piece with a neutral to balance out the look.
Wearing pastel colors is a new “in” for the season, especially with pants and jackets.  Some of the most popular jean colors are mint and lavender. 
Believe it or not, girls of the north, but this look is NOT just for hunting!  Camo is a trend for the season, especially non-natural camo combinations such as pink and gray variations.  Camo patterns create a textured look that can add to the visual interest of a basic neutral-based outfit.
Try one of these looks this year when picking out your new school attire.  My biggest advice: whether you think you will like it or not, you never know until you try it on!
