Chic Boyfriend

DSC_0615.jpgI’ve been looking for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans for almost 2 years now, but I haven’t been able to find a pair within my price range that I actually really like… until now. On sale at less that 40 bucks (now back to only $59), I just couldn’t pass up the chance to try out these.

DSC_0593.jpgI’m in love with their versatility. I wear them out to run errands with a plain tee and my favorite sneakers or flip flops, or better yet I can dress them up with a pair of heels, a peplum top and a blazer. I love when two contradicting silhouettes fit together like they were made for each other. It’s the perfect combination of comfortable and chic!

DSC_0590.jpgI’m extremely excited this weekend to go to La Push, WA and camp on the beach, drink good beer and relax with my best friends. It’s already the end of July and I’m ready to soak up every last ounce of summer!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend. It feels great to be posting again 🙂




The Village at Grand Traverse Commons

DSC_1097.jpgWHEW! It feels good to sleep in a real bed for 5 whole consecutive nights in a row (thanks Heather for letting us use your pad). We arrived in Seattle on Saturday and I finally found some time to post 🙂 Unfortunately… I am still living out of the duffle bag which I have been doing since June 7th. This has taught me the art of simplicity. Traveling across the country I packed simple colored tee’s and skirts which I could layer and dress up with some fun sandals and jewelry. I loved being able to reach into my suitcase blindly and make something work with the first skirt and shirt I grabbed.


Before we embarked on our journey we stopped in to visit my best friend and food blogger Tricia of Growth by the Season in Traverse City, MI at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons. It is an old insane asylum renovated into offices, cute boutiques and restaurants. If you are in the area you MUST check it out. It is absolutely amazing what they have done with the place. I was lucky enough to get a private tour of to the unfinished wing, which is where the majority of these pictures were taken (you can tell by the paint peeling off the walls). It was eerily beautiful. Thanks for taking us around Trish! I can’t wait to come back again soon and see the progress that they are making. What a great addition to the TC community.
