A Lady Date

I planned a day trip to Grand Rapids to deliver a present to my friend Jen and take a mini tour of the city for food and drink (naturally.) We kicked off our day at Ferris Coffee for lattes and wonderfully lit selfies before heading to Broadway Bar, a dive bar with delicious food and most importantly, infamous for its holiday decor.

Blending in or Standing Out

When I styled a faux print sweatshirt and a leopard print coat, I thought I was being bold..and then I took photos in front of a yellow wall where I blend in completely. Hmph..

If there’s one sleeper staple item in my closet, it’s the crewneck sweatshirt. I can style anything around one like this Pam & Gela one from Schoola. I layered it underneath this fur jacket I bought off consignment from Bella Furs from a “a reputable, wealthy family in Grand Rapids” And then my receipt read Van Andel. If you’re in Michigan, you know what that means. Thank you Van Andel family for passing along a beautiful Dries Van Noten coat to a mere peasant. Read More »

Wandering

It’s been 15 years since I’ve last visited downtown Rockford and it is incredibly cute. My friend Jen lives there and we finally committed to a plan of lunch and wandering the shops and trail along the river. I stumbled into a candy store where I have absolutely no self control and grabbed a caramel apple and some sour cherry candies! It’s such a quaint downtown–not too big and not too small, a perfect day trip if you’re already planning to head to Grand Rapids. Read More »

Suede & Fringe

I love a good jacket. I hoard them and most of my closets in my new house are overflowing with coats and jackets. And I’ve now reignited my love for suede starting with the purchase of this fringe moto jacket. I love this statement jacket because of the fringe and color–a perfect combination to layer over an all-black outfit, a typical fuss-free look I go for when strapped for time and creativity.
