Birch & Elm

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Last Saturday I helped celebrate the grand opening of Birch & Elm here in Owosso. It was a fabulous time and a great turnout. So nice to see local people getting out to shop! Birch & Elm carries a great selection of curated clothing from the LA Fashion District. It's refreshing to see unique styles that you won't find other places, that's what I love about it.

I wore this adorable green top with a delicate lining and skinny jeans, both from the shop. I paired them with my Steve Madden block heel sandals and I was comfortable ALL day. I received many compliments on these sandals and let me tell you- they're not only cute but comfy too! They're all leather and set at just the right height. You can purchase them in the outfit description at the end of this post. I'll be wearing them all summer

Birch & Elm isn't 'just' clothing, they also carry a great selection of fun home goods. I LOVE these little pots. Darling. Heaven knows my poor house plants need an upgrade. Ha.. I should probably buy these soon.

And yes, obviously Ben and Winston came out to see me and snap a few pictures, too. Could my smile be any more sappy? All day, people. This is me all day. This boy is delicious.

If you're local (or maybe even 'somewhat' local), get out here to Birch & Elm! It's worth a trip. And while you're here there are plenty of other great local digs. Coffee, cuisine, sushi, ice cream, etc...

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a fun Mother's Day gift idea, I know you'll love it.

Retail Therapy x The Standard

Monday, May 2, 2016

Last Thursday I attended a braid & brow event hosted by Retail Therapy and featuring the lovely gals from The Standard in Old Town, Lansing. It was a great time! Michelle hooked me up with a beautiful crown braid and made me feel like a babe. It was my first time visiting Retail Therapy and it won't be the last! They have a beautiful selection of hand curated clothing, jewelry, and more. I've got my eye on a pair of jeans with my name on them. ;)

Everything in Old Town Lansing is beautiful right now. The trees are in full bloom and they were dropping white petals everywhere! Now if only the weather would cooperate. Ugh. It was only in the 40's and chilly when we snapped these pictures. Thankfully we have some warmer days ahead in the forecast. Bring it. I'm SO ready for summer.

I hope your weekend was great! I enjoyed the grand opening of Birch & Elm in Owosso and had a blast interacting and meeting new people. It was a great turnout. What a perfect addition to our downtown- more on that this Wednesday.

Yesterday after church we came home and chilled the most. It was wonderful. I love our Sunday afternoons. I made homemade lasagna and we rounded out the evening with a trip to our local ice cream shop. Sundae Sunday, right? Perfection.

The Pink Pants

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Spring Fever 1

These light pink pants have been my go-to lately, which kind of surprises me. I bought them not knowing if I would 'actually' wear them much. It was a gamble. But lo and behold, I'm living in them. Turns out, there's actually a lot that works with pink pants. Black, gray, white, patterns, etc... I've tried all the combinations and I just can't seem go wrong. And they're the perfect color for spring so I'm rolling with it.

Spring Fever 4

Things have been extra crazy here lately, but good. Would I recommend trying to sell a home with a 9 month old?- Nope. Ha.. But we're rolling with it. We've had tons of showings and with spring finally here I know it's just a matter of time before it sells. The waiting is the hardest.

Other than that, everything's well here. So many wonderful things to look forward to in the spring and summer months! I just LOVE them. This weekend is the grand opening of Birch & Elm here in Owosso (see previous post) and I'm really looking forward to that! I'll be on site from 11-2 to hang and offer trend and styling tips. And the following weekend is the opening day of our local farmer's market! We try to go each Saturday and stock up on fresh produce and local goods. Owosso has a 'great' market. And this year we have new wine & cheese vendors, some coming all the way from Traverse City!

That's all for me today! Hope you're having a great week, friends.

My 'almost' Easter dress + an invite

Thursday, April 21, 2016

Ah, behold- my 'almost' Easter dress. I had great plans of wearing it, spending time with family, etc., and then came down quite sick on Easter morning. No good. But truth be told, our Easter weather was pretty nasty anyway (like, 30's nasty) so I held out for a few more Sundays until the weather warmed up significantly. I wore this last weekend when it was 78 and awesome and enjoyed the heck out of myself. It was just so nice out!

I snagged this Hint of Mint dress at Meijer and felt like I hit the lotto. It's SO gorgeous. Talk about stepping up their game- Meijer is killing it with their clothing selection these days. I mean, just look at the dainty buttons and lacy back:::
I paired the dress with this spring-ish jacket that I've had forever from Target and it worked perfectly. When it got super warm in the afternoon I ditched the jacket and went wild & free. ;)

After church on Sunday we went to the grand opening of Apt. 4 Boutique in Owosso. It was great! They specialize in shabby chic antiques and other cutesy things. I picked up a pillow that I fell in love with but plan on spending a lot more time there when we get into our new home. It's great to see so many awesome things coming to Owosso lately.

And local gals- speaking of awesome things coming to Owosso, I'll be hanging with Birch & Elm, a new clothing boutique, for their grand opening on Saturday, April 30th and I'd love it if you came out! It's going to be a great time.

I'll be back with you soon! Have a great day, friends.

A little boho

Monday, April 18, 2016

The weather has been SO warm and amazing here in the mitten recently. I mean, 75 and balmy. Perfect. And I can feel something coming back to life in me that only vitamin d can resuscitate. It's a happy, new me that I forget exists until spring awakens it each year. I start to feel the need to plant flowers, spend gobs of time outdoors, and make way too many unplanned trips to the ice cream shop. ;) Heh...

Spring is tricky because I'm not ready to go sleeveless but some days can get pretty warm, so a breezy tunic like this little boho number is perfect! I spotted it, along with these adorable t-strap sandals, at American Eagle and swiped them up immediately. I'm living in them. So comfortable.

Seriously, how perfect are these open sleeves and wrist ties? Too fun.

These t-strap sandals are so comfortable and they don't make my feet look weird. Praise Him. Know what I mean? Like, some sandals just sit weird on that wide part right before your toes? Well, these don't do that. I love them. They were comfortable from the moment I put them on. No need to break them in! And they're on SALE. Even better. Like, $14.99 on sale. See the link below in the outfit details.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We got a new (used) jogger stroller for FREE from our amazing friends this weekend (thanks Jenny & Jeremy!) and we're so excited about it. Well, mainly me. I've been dying to get out and run during the day and this will work perfect. I'm looking forward to jogging down to the Farmer's Market in a few weeks with Ben & baby. Opening Saturday is May 7th! Cheers to the week ahead, friends!
