Bow back eyelet top

I know it’s fall and we are all looking forward to apple orchards, sweaters, and cider, but when the weather is 80 degrees and sunny, you embrace it. This bow back eyelet top makes me feel all the summer vibes. It’s light, cute, and flattering with cami straps and a peplum edge. The bow is useful – you can cinch it to tighten. If you are into jewelry (but don’t have time to shop for it), keep reading for a discount code for rocksbox! And if you missed my radio interview, head here to listen! It’s about how style motivates and why it’s good to get dressed for the day. But back to this look…these jeans, people…they are a must have.Read More

Gray Slouchy Sweater

In some exciting news, I was on a radio show recently! Head here to hear the show – it was on Empower Radio with Lisa Jesswein and we had a fun chat about dressing to make yourself feel better and get motivated for the day. Say hello to the knit you’ve been looking for. This gray slouchy sweater is comfy, oversized, off the shoulder, and basically perfection. Gray goes with just about everything, and the ribbed detail on the bottom of the dolman sleeves keep it in place, while keeping it slightly off the shoulder. You can dress it up or pair with jeans and a pretty bralette. It’s such a great basic, and only $27.Read More

Denim Skirt with Ruffle + Bell Sleeve Embroidered Top

This outfit is the bees knees. I love both pieces, and they are completely budget friendly. This denim skirt with the cutest ruffle is on sale for only $34.90 and my top is $17 (but feels much more expensive with the gorgeous embroidery). If you’re looking for a date night look, brunch outfit or summer concert inspo, this is it. And look at me unapologetically admire my $32.99 sandals…Read More

Polka Dots and Ruffles

“Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?” – says white tee. YES, yes it is what you are looking for. This tee has it all.

It feels like a cozy sweatshirt but is cute, has fun details, and is so basic yet not basic. This tee screams “add me to your closet!” And it’s $15. Need I say more? I do need to – it also comes in black.Read More

Free People Tie Back Jumpsuit

You may be on jumpsuit overload by now, but let me assure that this one needs it’s moment. It’s flowy, super soft, flattering, and can be worn a number of different ways. It’s shown here with nothing underneath, but I love pairing it with a tank top. In the fall, I will be wearing it with a long sleeve tee. At under $100, it’s a great deal on a unique piece for your closet.  It’s a little boho and a lot comfy.Read More

Flower Applique Bag + What’s In Mine

I love the shape of this bag, but what sold me is the gorgeous flower appliqué strap. Not only is it the prettiest, but it turns this tote into a cross body and it’s also detachable – I can put it on any bag I want. At under $130 (originally $200+), it’s a great buy. It’s neutral color make it so versatile and I’m finding myself taking it out and leaving my usual black bag behind.Read More

This romper + kicks look is the ultimate in luxe for less and luxe in terms of soft. When I tried on the adorable romper I thought “did I grab this from the pajama section?” It’s so comfortable, it seems like it should be reserved for sleeping, but no – it’s a daytime romper, perfect for summer days, trips to the pool, and time at the park.Read More

The best of Shopping Local in the Mitten (grocery edition)


Little known fact: I LOVE to grocery shop. I find it relaxing and love looking for nutritious food and new items for my family. I was so excited to be invited to the grand opening of Busch’s Fresh Food Market in Canton, Michigan (go here to enter to win free groceries by signing up for MyWay benefits!). It’s a neighborhood market that’s natural, urban and one of my new favorite places. You can find me at the honey bar (where you can buy local honey in bulk, as much or as little as you like), juice bar (I will take a Traverse City Cherry, please), Gelato bar (any flavor, please) or flower stand.Read More

Buckwheat Double Chocolate Cookies (Gluten Free!)

I was skeptical of this recipe. Verrrrrrry skeptical, but these cookies are simply delicious. They are also gluten free and full of protein and iron from the buckwheat flour, and flavonoids from the dark chocolate. So I consider them health food, but they are cookies people. Ridiculously good cookies with benefits.Read More

Overall Bliss

I really can’t get enough of this pair of overalls or the off the shoulder soft sweater I recently picked up. Everytime I’m out in my overalls I get compliments and inquiries as to where I found them. They are insanely flattering, comfortable, and not what you think overalls look like – curve hugging and a little sexy, and you can find them here (although my version is from last year and ever so slightly different – but I like the newer version better). Read More
