Rainy Day Plaid

Plaid Love

This plaid shift dress has been remixed quite a bit in the last couple weeks. I styled it with faux leather leggings the week before and an oversize black vest and for weekend wear, I tucked it into high waist jeans and added a leather jacket. My mom and I met up in Grand Rapids, popped over to Madcap Coffee and then Milbrook for a fall tack sale and ended our GR date eating soup and chicken tenders for lunch. Read More Β»

Saugatuck Getaway

I had a food hangover leaving my weekend getaway in Saugatuck for my friend Katherine’s bachelorette party. We indulged in the most delicious food that another friend prepared at our cottage rental and an amazing dinner at Salt of the Earth–lots of cheese, bubbly wine and sweets. Read More Β»

I planned a trip to Grand Rapids last weekend to work out at FLEXcity Fitness’s GR location with my friend Jen and then breakfast at the omelette shop. I tried to be good, but I have no self control when it comes to delicious bread and crispy hash browns. 
I changed in my car and headed to the downtown market to introduce my mom to its many delicious food options (so I ate again). We grabbed crepes and cupcakes before heading Warehouse One Antiques and ending our day at Le Bon for a macaron and coffee. I surprised my mom a trip to Las Vegas at the end of the month so we spent some time discussing plans which now include a day trip to LA and visiting canyons and state parks where my mom expects to see at least one band of wild horses. If you have any restaurant recommendations for Vegas or the Santa Monica area, let me know!

A Michigan Blogger Meet Up

BLOGEVENTJASMINE-42
Last month, Sam and I coordinated a Michigan style blogger meet up in Grand Rapids at Le Bon and met some of my internet friends in person and made a few new blogger connections too! We set up a few vendors and had macarons and wine! I bought an illustration from Jasmine Wisz and drank too much coffee (so good!) while shopping Lee & Birch and so I now own the cutest, fluffiest pink hat.

Well it’s starting to look and feel a lot like fall. I love it. For a day trip to Grand Rapids, I dressed in my most comfortable layers and headed out to drink good coffee and check out Art Prize with my friend Ashley. I bought myself this Proenza Schouler bag (HALF OFF NO LIE) a couple weeks ago too and it’s slowly becoming attached to my body.
We rushed to get to Le Bon Macaron where we immediately became obsessed with the pumpkin flavor and the iced vanilla latte. We indulged in more coffee at Rowster and then checked out a couple Art Prize venues before walking through the downtown market. What a lovely day.
