Mercury Burger Bar

Everyone in the North East feels my pain right now.  If you don’t, you soon will.  (Don’t worry friends and family on the coast, your day will suck tomorrow as much as mine did today!)  Just two short days ago, I was sitting at my picnic table outside enjoying a beer with Josh and Laika, wearing a tank top.  I was wearing the tank top, not Laika.  Anyway, we woke up to snow on the ground this morning.  Michigan is weird.  New England is also weird.  April is weird.  It’s been 27 years of this.  None of it should be shocking to me at this point, but it still surprises me every time.  It’s as if I repress how awful the desperate wait for truly nice weather actually is.  April is definitely one of those months when you can be in a sundress one day, and have to break out the boots, cashmere, and jacket the next.  At least there are milkshakes and burgers in the world.

This Day Was a Dream


A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of hosting the V2V + Jenny Yoo trunk show event in Ann Arbor, with V2V bridal coordinator and fellow Lionel Richie enthusiast, Leah.  We had a lot of fun, and it was so great to see some fellow brides have that ah ha moment.  A huge thanks to Tea Haus for supplying the macarons, to Everyday Wines for the champagne, and to Heather Nash for taking these beautiful photos.  A BIG thanks to my friend, Stephanie, the stunning bride-to-be pictured here.  She happens to be marrying another dear friend of mine, and I’m so excited for their wedding!  Of course, none of these is the dress she’s officially wearing on her day (couldn’t reveal that one duh) but if these ones are the no’s, just think how gorgeous she’ll be in the yes!

We all know I’m a Free People Girl.  The embroidery on these jeans is so cool, and the flowy thermal is perfect for those early spring days when it’s still a little chilly.
