Put a Vest on It


Fall Layering Favorites

Us midwest folks are still experiencing this odd transitional weather. I’m freezing in the morning and sweating by mid-afternoon, making layering absolutely necessary. And my favorite fall layering piece, you ask? Theย vest. Read More ยป

Put a Vest on It


Vests are the Best

I was in New York City with Celeste last winter on a buying trip for fall and we spotted this vest by Kiyo. We both loved the outerwear pieces and this was one of the pieces Celeste ordered–and now it’s in–and now one is mine! I styled it simply here with distressed denim, a super soft grey tunic and my favorite pair of statement boots. Read More ยป

Winter decided to return like an asshole yesterday. Still bitter. Snow fell in little flurries and instead of wearing a dress for lunch with my friend Jen in Grand Rapids, I was forced to wear layers (not pictured: leather jacket worn under vest.) We met at Gravity, a beautiful spot off of 96 where they had BLUEBERRY MIMOSAS and everything brisket..but since I just started a nutrition program and I simply was feeling like a pile of shit, I ordered a wedge salad. A salad is the last thing I crave on any menu, which tells you how terrible I felt if a few slices of iceberg lettuce suited my fancy.
Also, I’ve been shopping for some hair care products for summer and thought I’d share a few favorite luxury and budget-friendly haircare products over on Mode!

Black + Grey


This weekend kicks off a slew of festivities that I’ve been anxiously awaiting: a trip to Chicago, Create + Cultivate and a Birchbox breakfast event downtown. Sam and I came down Thursday night and have an itinerary jam packed with cool shit. Believe me, I put together an itinerary to ensure we time everything out to fit it all in like Stan’s Donuts, the Shudio, downtown shopping and maybe some wandering in Wicker Park.
The excitement continues next week when I head into my first day at Martin Waymire Advocacy Communications. The team is incredibly talented, knowledgeable and a little intimidating, not because they want to be, but they’re on top of their game. I’m anxious to get started and get on that level. I’ve read something a while ago that said “I’m not comfortable unless I’m uncomfortable” and I’d say that’s my motto. I’ve been learning and growing a lot, in many ways that really challenged me in my last position. But now I’m excited for a challenge to grow in my profession and learn from the best.
I’ve been freelancing the last month, building off of blog, photography and social media work. The most exciting part of that has been using my set of skills to help local small businesses that are really the type of stores and studios we need to keep and grow like like Retail Therapy and FLEXcity Fitness. I feel like I’m on a constant rollercoaster ride with all these great things happening and that’s how I want my life to feel like.
