Saumon d’Ete – Beet-cured Salmon, deviled egg, snap pea & fromage blanc

If you’re a food enthusiast and are all-about-the-vibe like me, you won’t want to miss this cute little French restaurant, tucked in a corner near Uptown, Minneapolis, MN.

I’d like to introduce a new and long-awaited must-have series on the blog Style&Senses: StyleAndSensesEATS. I’ve started the hashtag: #styleandsensesEATS quite a while back on my Instagram, and I’ve been wanted to add more food content since I love food so much. I love eating! I’d love to have cooking as my passion, maybe in my next life, but can eating be one, this life? Just kidding. But seriously though, I love eating. So if you’re just another normal human being who loves to eat, I’m sure you’d enjoy this new series on the blog. I think it’s a nice break from fashion content which is my main focus here.

The restaurant, featured in this very first post, well, has to be the one and only:

St. Genevieve

5003 Bryant Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55419

Last Sunday, after a long tiring wedding day on Saturday, my boyfriend and I had to wake up early for a shoot for this local bag company. Well, I was assisting, holding lights and styling the models. With a little of sleep, we were in desperate need for some good coffee. I remembered not too long ago seeing St. Genevieve was tagged in a blogger’s photo. I had to give it a try since we were closed to the neighborhood. I was charmed by the very second I stepped in the door with the decor, the tile work on the floor, and the vibe, of course, very Frenchy!

Omelette du Week-end- I remember there’s corn, cheese, asparagus, and yummy goodness!

Beignets – must try!!!!

cafe latte & their famous Vietnamese coffee

ABOUT THE OUTFIT & THE SHOOT LOCATION:

We stopped by the Walker Art Center, probably 8 times total in the past 2 weekends. This outfit was shot right in front of the restaurant/cafeteria/lobby, the newly renovated area of the Walker. We just parked up the hill near the residential area for free. Walker Art Center is amazing as there are so many hidden corners that are great for photography. If you head up the stairs outside and on the right side of the restaurant, the spaghetti noodle grass is right by the stairs (as seen in the photos below). Funny that my boyfriend had me laying down there, and he went crazy for it and went on by saying ‘it’s his favorite grass to shoot with!” Yup, he’s crazy sometimes, haha! After seeing the photos, I was in shocked! The grass, in fact, was so cool in photos. It looked almost unreal, so lush and so green.

Summer is when shorts and crop tops are out full force. Per usual, I opted for a pair of white shorts with silver pineapples embroidered on them and a cute little black ribbed crop top. Another black and white pairing, surprise!! I added a pair of round metal Ray-ban sunglasses. I bought these at least 2 years ago at the Sak Off Fifth for $40. I rarely wear these because of the pink that I find it’s hard to style. The shorts and the crop top I also bought at a sale rack many seasons ago.

shorts: J-crew | crop top: Brandy Melville (bought at Pacsun) | sunglasses: Ray-ban | bag: Rebecca Minkoff | sandals: Joie (bought on sale from DSW)similar items are linked at the end of this post!

Yay! IT’S FRIDAY! Hope you’ll have a fantastic weekend ahead! How can July fly by so fast?! Summer is already 2/3 of its way? So crazy! Anyways, I hope you like my very first restaurant/food feature here on the blog. As always, any comments or ideas, requests are welcome in the comment section below. I’ll talk to you very soon!

Thanks for reading!

stay inspired | as always
