erin part deux

Mondays. Normally I hate them, but I was super busy at work and the day flew right by! I met up for dinner with my friend, Jasmine and shopped some sales at Urban Outfitters. The pleasant mood today helped fuel some of my energy to clean my apartment. And now time to shop online! Or at least look..

As promised, below are some photos of my friend Erin from Saturday.

bay harbor

Returned from Bay Harbor, Mich. today! I helped someone at work with some side projects and was handsomely rewarded with a free weekend at his Bay Harbor cottage to ski and relax. This place was amazing. I didn’t end up skiing, but I did spend time at the spa and did some shopping in the quaint towns surrounding Bay Harbor. I has assumed this cottage would be somewhat rustic and we would be in a town somewhat rustic so I didn’t pack much. Little did I know this cottage was apart of a golf resort and hotel and that there were actual places to go out. I love how I can dress this dress up or down. It’s versatile and I’m glad I tossed it into my suitcase.

Here’s a photo of the cottages I stayed at along side the hotel. They were right against the bay and the spa, coffee shop, restaurants and other other shops were only a minute walk away. Ah it was wonderful.

Erin

This weekend I’m up in Northern Michigan staying in the cutest cottage with hotel amenities near a ton of clothing boutiques and other cute shops. I’m here with my friend, Erin who’s style is similar to mine and I absolutely love everything she wears.

Ah, I like the structured shape of her purple bag more than mine. I believe she got that gorgeous jacket for some ridiculous deal in Chicago–like $100 or something.

We grabbed lunch at Stafford’s Pier Inn I believe. It seemed promising. It overlooks the pier and her salad looked so pretty. When she was almost done eating it, she discovered mold on one of the raspberries. hahaha.

a bit of lace

This has been haunting me:

I’ve been trying to eat a bit better since my diet currently consists of redbull, hot cheetos and chocolate in any form. So I took the plunge and purchased one yogurt. I don’t like yogurt. It grosses me out. But asparagus used to also disgust me out and now it’s one of the very few fruits and vegetables I actually like. I’ve had this in my refrigerator for a week and I just keep looking at it. Sorry, nothing to do with fashion/style..but I just need to try and eat it soon. Maybe I will like it.

So my outfit today is pretty weak. I didn’t give much thought to what I was going to wear but to spice up a simple dress with lace tights and a pair of heels I got for a steal last year for $11. I thought I would post it anyways since I like updating this blog and it may be harder for me to this weekend as I will be attempting to ski for the first time at Boyne Mountain in Northern Michigan. Wish me luck!

grey gloom day

This outfit is pretty simple. I wore this to work today and I was excited to wear my new sweater. I got it half off at a boutique. It’s a size large, but I like how it fits. I just love oversized sweaters and tees. I pass these black jeans off as dress pants at work. WIth a pair of heels, I feel dressy!

Today felt like such a blah day. Everything is grey and gloomy. To combat Seasonal Affective Disorder, I decided to join a dance/aerobics class. So now, every Tuesday I will participate in Zumba and show everyone my white girl moves. I had so much fun making an ass out of myself and exercising at the same time.
