things i like

Chunky knits. I can’t get enough. From thick circle scarves to oversized sweaters, I love them all. They’re absolutely perfect for surviving Michigan winters. Victoria’s photo from Lookbook is pretty much a testimony to all the current styles I love and they work together.


Wedges. Jeffrey Campbell has some rockin’ bootie wedges. Especially these cut out, lace ups. I usually go for black shoes, but these look better in grey. Both colors are available though.


Tapered pants. I’m not usually a dress pants type of person, but when I saw these silk tapered trouses from Acne, it was love at first sight. I did some searching to find a couple less expensive versions. I personally opted for the BCBG crossover pant, but only because I was afraid of ordering these from Topshop. I’ll be posting some photos tomorrow of my new pants!


Leather jackets. Love love love. A leather jacket adds structure to my loose fitting shirts and adds some toughness to more feminine dresses I wear to work. Caroline styled this Balenciaga biker leather with a striped Alexander Wang top. I like how simple and effortless this is. It’s probably her way of dressing to run to the grocery store instead of wearing a frumpy old sweatshirt like I tend to do.


Capes. They’re practical AND cute. Louise is a stunning example of how to pull off a cape coat. I should have photographed my boss lady, Kate when she wore a cape to work last week. She also wore hers very well and made me pine for one even more.

out in old town

Finally, some sun in Lansing, Michigan! The sun peaked out for a moment yesterday and today, hardly a cloud in the sky. It made the 18 degree weather not seem AS horrible. The top is one of the purchases I made yesterday. I was excited to wear the most comfortable tee ever. I got it for a third of the original price too!

Below is my friend Tom who takes most of my photos for me. We became friends when I started college in 2004. My friend, Jenn had a huge crush on him and I stalked him on facebook. I eventually met him and he’s been one of my besties ever since! His day job is as a personal trainer, but he’s a fab photographer and helps me feel comfortable. I’m so awkward in front of a camera, but it helps me better understand how my clients might feel when I’m photographing people and how I might make them more comfortable.

day in detroit

After work, I met up with my friend A.J. and set out to metro Detroit to do some shopping. He’s quite the fashionable dude so I snapped some photos of him in my parking lot. He’s off to Nashville next week to pursue his dreams (and fine tune his singing/songwriting skills) with the help of an established studio who helped Mutemath get their start. So exciting!

Not sure what I’m doing..But later realized it was a mistake to wear the faux fur vest inside at the mall. I was overheating and sweating profusely as we power walked through the mall.

We stopped in Birmingham first. There’s a super cute boutique called Lexi Drew. Unfortunately, many of the same items I already saw a couple months ago were still there. Lots of dresses with lace and shoulder! We stopped at Caruso Caruso where I found an oversized thick knit sweater for half off and AJ found a vest. Next, we went to Somerset. I didn’t even know this mall existed until three years ago. It’s huge and filled with fab stores. I made several purchases that I’ll hopefully have picture posts for in the next couple days.

about me

Blonde Bedhead is a style diary, sharing my personal style, fashion inspiration, hair and beauty favorites along with life skills and personal stories.
I started Blonde Bedhead in January 2010, just two years fresh out of Michigan State University. As a creative introvert, it seemed like the perfect balance to share my photography, style “risks” and personal stories. I’ve realized I’ve always put too much weight into what people thought of me, especially in jobs, internships and now career. My identity was tied up with what a few people in my professional world thought of me and this blog has served as a place to remind me I’m more than what I am 9-5 p.m.
