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 »

Small Town Adventures & Buying Nearby

Buying Nearby

I’ve been making the most of my weekend mini travels in Michigan, most recently hunting down the tack and products I need to get back into the horseback riding game. And while I’ve glanced at the online shops, it’s just the most fun experience to visit the locally owned tack shops in quaint towns. And it completely fits with one of my favorite clients, Michigan Retailers Association’s Buy Nearby campaign. It’s fun when my day job intersects with my blog and I can promote something I care about–like supporting regional/local shops.

I’ve spent the last three weekends touring any and all tack shops to better understand what we have here in Michigan when it comes to riding gear, tack, feed and supplies. There’s really nothing I love more than a little road trip and shopping and most recently, my mom and I made a trip to Sparta and Grand Rapids. For the horse and small town enthusiasts, read on for a few of our stops and favorite places! Read More »

Fall Festivities

My mom and I planned a mini road trip just outside of town during her visit to hit up Tom’s Western Store, cider mills, a farmer’s market and..Home Depot. The weather and activities called for something comfortable and I’ve been patiently waiting for the weather to cool off to wear this and not sweat my ass off. Read More »
