These Christmas traditions are what make all the hustle and bustle of this holiday season worth it to me. We were never real tree people until Otto was born (funny how kids do that for ya) and ever since then we decided welp, time for a real tree. It was a happy decision not only […]

On the hunt for the perfect real tree


Our Favorite Christmas Tree Farm in Michigan

  I am so excited that Ashley and I will be back at our local Kate Spade to shop their new holiday and gift collection! The previous shopping event was so much fun we all left with the same belt bag. This event will be a little earlier in the evening, starting at 6:15pm and […]

Kate Spade Holiday Guide and Local Event


Kate Spade Pink Tiered Tulle Skirt

One of my favorite quotes from The Devil Wears Prada is when Miranda unenthusiastically mutters “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” However… Florals for fall or fall floral foliage albeit not ground breaking is a little against the grain from the large cable knit sweaters we see this season. In line with Mirandas sentiment I have not […]

Sezane Theophile Trousers and Fleur Jumper


Sezane TH√ČOPHILE TROUSERS in yellow

  I think that shopping for fall clothing might be my favorite season to shop for. I love all the plaids, sweaters and crisper weather. Although, fall in Michigan has been very reminiscent of summer time. The temperatures are slowly starting to fall though, and we have our first threat of frost in the forecast. […]

Fall Fashion Finds Plaid Top From Sezane


Sezane Plaid Top with White Collar

Let’s talk about this Kate Spade Tweed Coat for a minute shall we? I had been off of the Kate Spade site for a few months or so and when I saw my pal Ashley wearing it I fell in love with it. The next big sale I snagged one for myself and found out […]

Kate Spade Tweed Coat and Fall Event


Kate Spade black and white tweed Coat

True story: I rarely buy anything without a coupon. It has to be something like a designer handbag or a brand that doesn’t have sales ever for me to spend. Because almost every brand at some point in the year will mark things down or have a sale. Tory Burch is one of those places […]

How to style a summer belted dress

The Holland Farmers market was in full swing yesterday as we are entering into peak summer in Michigan. It was the perfect day to dress up in my new Vera for Anthropologie button up dress that I scored on sale this month. The weather is a bit muggy so lightweight wear was much needed. I […]

This post is sponsored by Purple, all thoughts and opinions are my own A few weeks ago I was able to go check out my local Purple retailer when I was out in Lansing for work. I had just been awarded my 11 year pin at work and thought it was time to upgrade my […]

Feeling Royal in my New Purple Royal Seat Cushion


Purple Royal Seat Cushion

I know what you’re thinking. Florals for spring? Ground breaking. Floral patterns tie in my love for fashion and gardening and I can’t get enough of them. When Sezane (can you tell I’m a bit obsessed) had their spring mini capsule release on Sunday this is one of the items I snatched up. I also […]

The air was crips and spring like and we had a break in the clouds with a week long forecast of rain so I decided to take Otto for breakfast before bringing him to school. We grabbed some “candy floss” (that is Peppa Pig speak for cotton candy) and went for a walk around the […]

How to Wear a Dress with Sneakers


Linen Dress with Sneakers

It was a rare moment. I had a few hours of solo shopping while I was in Orlando this winter. Otto and Joe were having a swim and I snuck off to the outlets for a bit of quiet time. I love outlet shopping. I’m dutch to more core and I LOVE a good deal. […]

Classic Trench, The history and how to style


Classic Burberry Trench Coat

If you scroll through all of the spring outfit suggestions on Pinterest you will no doubt come in to contact with ads for SHEIN Official. Tempted in the past, I never pushed the “Purchase Now” button on the site. I always thought no way this is that price. It’s probably going to come ten sizes […]
