Fringed

DSC_9785
Nothing like leather shorts on a Sunday afternoon. Last Sunday, I ran like 567 errands followed by a nap on my couch and catching up on last season’s True Blood. Very productive.
I styled the shorts with a loose cotton tee, wedge sneakers and a bright fringe clutch, an outfit that’s totally me, even down to the haggard hair.

A Summer Thing

DSC_9756
Last Friday night called for a light summer dress for my favorite festivities: dinner and drinks on a patio. I’m basically a bum in the summer, floating from one patio to the next, eating burgers and drinking beers. I took it easy this weekend, caught up on errands and spent some time poolside and exploring one of the local farmer’s markets. 
The highlight of my weekend? Discovering the candy section of this farmer’s market where buttermints and other treats were plentiful and I even picked up spicy homemade noodles, cheese from a farm near my hometown and cookies. You know the feeling when you go to Ikea for the first time and you’re unprepared and you feel overwhelmed by all the things you want? That’s how I felt here. Gotta go back this week with a list, a pair of flats, and get more cheese!

Just got my new Nokia phone! Woo! It’s a pretty awesome phone and I’m still figuring out all of its capabilities. Stay tuned for a review!

I love when I dig into my closet and rediscover something awesome I forgot about like this pleated skirt. I’ve worn it maybe twice and I realized it would be the perfect skirt to wear with a little cropped top on a hot, humid day. I added a denim vest and simple heels, perfect outfit to hit up the Victoria’s Secret semi-annual sale and dinner with friends.

Put a Bird On It

DSC_8885
This outfit kicked off a crazy and fun weekend celebrating my friends Liz and Ryan’s wedding. There’s nothing more fun than being surrounded by a ton of friends and an open bar.
I styled this peplum top (from my friend Katelyn’s new shop Kate & Cecilia, check it out!) with mint jeans and a vintage jean jacket on Friday. Luckily, it hasn’t been very hot and humid in Michigan which allows for layering/jackets. I’m hoping to bust out a new denim vest tonight for the Postal Service concert in Detroit! Ah, I just love denim. And that band.

Quick

DSC_8854
I wore this for a quick trip to frozen yogurt last night following a brief, but intense workout. My newly engaged friends, Tom and Rachael live just down the road from me, so I joined them (and their cute pup Charlie) for a frozen treat piled high with Reeses, chocolate chips and caramel, essentially negating any of the calories I burned earlier that day.
