If given a choice, I’d almost always choose jeans and a tee, but it was so goddamn hot out, I threw this easy dress on with a pair of flats after work and called it a day. Kyle and I headed over to Lansing Brewing Company to snap a few pics with their apparel and we were treated to a sampling of beer and a tour of the space. The interior was made up of crisp white subway tiles, reclaimed wood and beautiful pendant lighting with an outpour of natural light. So beautiful. Plus, the beer was delicious.
I felt a little Kardashian in this dress, asking Kyle if it was appropriate to wear before leaving the apartment. I’ve been eating Mcdonald’s and Taco Bell basically every meal of every day and I have no choice but to own what I’ve got goin’ on.

Michigan Ave

IMG_9861
I changed many times over the course of the weekend in Chicago. I’m not usually so indecisive or fussy with clothing (fussy over many other things, but not what I’m wearing.) I’ve determined it’s because I kept trying to balance comfort with not looking totally drab while being surrounded by stylish blogger people the entire weekend. I’m used to spending my free time on the couch in leggings covered in dog fur.

Sam and I headed to the Birchbox pop up early on Friday and hit some shops on Michigan. I picked up a pair of faux leather culottes from Zara and a delicious cheeseburger from M Burger before making our way back to the hotel and Merl’s retail shop, the Shudio. I love her aesthetic and could hang out in her shop all day, especially when a pup named Judy arrived. I bought a pair of dad jean levi’s for myself from Rawson and a necklace from Merl’s new collection

A One Piece for Summer

DSC_6688
I’ve been spending any weekend free time poolside and love this new one piece. It sucks me in and highlights my assets. It’s like this bathing suit says “go ahead, eat that donut, I’ll keep you covered and distract them by showing your boobies.” Thank you, swimsuit.

Wearing Lipstick Queen, Rodial Instaglam Skin Tint and this wonderfully smelling serum, all great products for spending time by the pool or beach.

A Michigan Farmer’s Market

DSC_6026
Maybe it’s been my reluctance to eat fruits and vegetables, but I had never made it to the farmer’s market at the capitol in my ten years of living in Lansing. My friend Sam of Samantha Elizabeth asked me to snap a few photos and now that I like veggies (and some fruit) and learned of the huge variety of goods at the market, I made it a priority to attend. 
My haul included apple spice donuts (sugar coated and plain), a chocolate croissant, spicy salsa and whole wheat chips, fresh-baked bread with red pepper flakes, jalapenos, green peppers, spicy pickled asparagus and daylillies. If I would’ve had time, I could’ve done more damage! I twisted Hannah’s arm in coming to help me shop and lend her pretty face for a few photos. I compensated her with my lasting friendship and a sugar coated donut.

I can’t wait to shop the next farmer’s market on August 27 and September  24. I need more donuts and well-priced jalapenos in my life.
