LookBook- The Dock


Hello all! I am home from another fantastic week in Northern Michigan. I spent the past week up North, and the weekend before that in The Straits Of Mackinac of Michigan. You should expect a full recap of the Mackinac trip tomorrow on the blog.

+Anyways, our family took the ferry over Saturday afternoon to Mackinac Island, a large tourist destination for Michiganders, and even some from surrounding states. Once settled into the Bicycle Inn & Suites, our family partook in a classic Mackinac Island amenity, biking! Our family hasn’t done it the past couple years since it’s the same drive every year and we go every year and like to try new things every year, but this year we decided to refresh our brains of the sites the Island has to offer!

+About halfway around the island, I have always noticed this dock that usually had one small boat attached, but this time no boats. This was the reason I felt less of a trespasser if I walked on the dock for pictures. This is probably one of my favorite spots around the Island now! You get views of the coast, bridge, and crystal blue water!

+Now, for the outfit I wore just a simple tank top and khaki shorts. With biking, and the heat up at the Island that day, it was the perfect simple outfit for outdoor activity, and I never felt overheated!


+It has been a wonderful vacation. I can’t believe I have yet ANOTHER trip ahead of me to Pennsylvania next week! I have doing trips every other week since July, and I really can’t complain because I have enjoyed every one of them. I hope you are having a fantastic Summer yourselves readers, have a good one! xxoo


LookBook- Cape May

July 1st, 2013


This past weekend, Nicki and I hung out at the local playground around my neighborhood and just relaxed to the Summer air. It was overcast the whole day but we got lucky with the weather considering the potential threat of rain.

I have come to the realization that I have been wearing a lot(too much) denim lately.

Nicki’s Outfit:


I have had this Cape May tank top for a while now and it has been one of my favorite tanks to wear, by itself or just layered.

My Outfit:

  1. Denim Vest: Thrift
  2. Cape May Tank Top: Thrift
  3. Bracelet: Rue 21
  4. Rude Skinny Jeans: Hot Topic
  5. Shoes: Converse


Lately, I have been pretty into sleeveless things like tank tops, vests and so on, and I have been findings a lot a thrift stores to add to my Summer wardrobe. It’s nice to show a little more skin instead of being bundled up in Spring clothes. Well I hope you have a fantastic start to your week readers and make it a good one! xxoo

Flower Power: Adventures At Horrocks!

June 17th, 2013


This past weekend I went out with Tiffany and Julia to do some pictures at Horrocks, a local organic market and floralstore. We went out and took some pictures in the multiple aisles of flowers, even with a little sprinkling of rain here and there, it made for a pleasant day!

Tiffany’s Outfit:

  • Dress: Brandy Melville
  • Kimono: Buckle
  • Shoes: Doc Martens

We may have been looking like we were stocking up on flowers in the photos, but in reality we just looked like freaks posing for pictures with flowers. Julia should be in a Martha Stewart Mag!

Tiffany and I go to different schools so when we get the opportunity to hang out we definitely take advantage, and converse about fashion and the internet. 😉

After much time spent in the store, and the skies cleared, we walked around a bit and to 7/11 where we got a few pics.

My Outfit:


It was nice to spend some time in a simple place and get so much enjoyment out of it. It inspires me to get out to more local stores to tour and play around in this Summer. It was also nice to do something relaxing with all the hustle and bustle of Annmarie’s wedding coming up, 5 MORE DAYS! It is crazy how different our lives will be after this weekend! I hope you are enjoying your Summers readers! xxoo

Lookbook- Rural Visit

May 20th, 2013


So this past Saturday, I spent the evening at my cousin’s home in Lowell Michigan. This small town has a lovely charm to it. For a town I don’t visit too often outside GR, this was my second visit in a week. My cousin’s home with not much around it, was so peaceful to spend the evening catching up and enjoying the Sun.

I loved how there were barely any cars that passed by, and it was a peaceful short getaway. It also made for some cliche shots in the street. On the second photo if you were wondering, they are some navy converse that I studded customarily with studs I purchased from Amazon!


From top to bottom, I got the shirt recently as a birthday gift, which I believe is from Khol’s. I got the shorts from Hot Topic 2 years ago which I love for Summer, and finally as I mentioned earlier were the studded Converse I had done myself.


Enjoy your week readers!

Grand Rapids, Or Should I Say, Atlantis?

April 22nd, 2013


It was an interesting view for me Sunday afternoon, as I could not walk along the paths that were paved along the Grand River. They were a few feet below water to the immense amounts of rain that occurred a couple days before.  Now I know that Atlantis is a bit of an exaggeration to the situation, but it is not an understatement to say that the water was something crazy!

I was not kidding. Thankfully it has not been severely dangerous to the people, and it has been kind of interesting seeing the town in a way it has never been before, if rarely. Many places and bridges along the Grand were closed due to the flooding, and worry of rising waters to overflow the bridges.

We spent some time along the river outside the Gerald R. Ford Museum to check out the overflow, and to get a grasp on the flooding, the lights in the upper-right hand corner of the photo above is where it should be normally. This is normally just an open grass area.


It was a little breezy that day, but I was pretty comfortable in my button-up flannel I bought freshman year that has been resurrected from my wardrobe, along with some shoes I don’t even remember when I bought them. I’m also some sunglasses and a beanie from H&M. This beanie has made many appearances on this blog, I just love to wear it with everything!


Although things were a little wet in GR the past few days, the sunshine and being in town is really making me anxious for Summer and warmer weather. Only a few more weeks of class until I’m free!(For the most part 😉 ) Enjoy your week readers!

Look Book- Purple Sweaters In Chicago

April 7th, 2013

Chicago definitely left me with a plenty of clothes to add to my Spring/Summer wardrobe combined. I envy the people who reside in Chicago that are only streets, if not, only a few miles away from stores we don’t have back in this region. Either way, while I do love picking up a new top from H&M, or a jacket from Forever 21, I think you can do a lot by balancing thrift store clothes as well, which is why I bring you this outfit.

I was pretty fortunate that the weather was not resistant to the outfit I was wearing. Out of the 2 days we were actually downtown, this day was a 50s day which was still pleasant walking around town with just the sweater.

Even later in the day once the temperature began to slowly fall and we walked to Millennium Park, I was still pretty comfortable in this outfit.

I just love this picture I got outside the Burberry store in Chicago, which looks awesome inside and out! This Outfit:

  1. Beanie from H&M
  2. Sweater from GoodWill
  3. Bracelet from Rue 21
  4. Rude skinny jeans from Hot Topic
  5. Classic Vans from Vans

I can definitely say, while I love a good big sweater, I am excited for the upcoming months as the temp is rising and I can actually wear lighter clothing. With that, have a good one readers!

California Dreamin’

February  2nd, 2013

Well today, my inspiration has been my longing for the West coast, and definitely not Michigan’s. This outfit, probably is not appropriate for the weather but these temperatures haven’t been calling my name outdoors much either. I like Michigan for the most part, even though my dramatic tweets probably make it seem otherwise. The Summers are so much more enjoyable than the Winters. I like Winter, but the weather that comes with it makes getting around quite difficult, especially when you don’t live in as dense of an area as other towns.

This Outfit:________________________

  1. Grey Beanie from H&M
  2. Denim Button-Up from H&M
  3. DIY Tie-Dye T Shirt
  4. Anchor Necklace from a small shop in Northern Michigan
  5. Khaki Pants from Rue 21

The problem most Michiganders, and I have is that half way through Winter, we get tired of wearing clothes to keep warm, so we push our boundaries as temperatures rise minimally. I seek any opportunity to wear tank-tops, sunglasses, shorts etc at this point of the Winter.

With that inspiration I leave you with some Mamas and the Papas. The song perfectly explains my mood and has resulted in being played on repeat this whole weekend. Have a wonderful weekend readers!
