Old Hollywood

Ray Bans

Although I’m typically much more of a 60s and 70s girl as opposed to a 40s one, I had so much fun on this old Hollywood shoot I styled for Erin Marie Miller with pieces from Modcloth (plus a vintage Dior cami I inherited from Erin herself). Model, Alyse Madej, is the sweetest, the ladies of Salon Blue did a stellar job on hair and makeup, and working with Erin is always a blast. Thanks, ladies!

Lately, the weather here in Ann Arbor has been pretty great. It’s cool in the morning and the evening, but still really nice and sunny during the day. It’s perfect for walks through the neighborhood, eating outside, and sleeping with the windows open. The transitional weather calls for some new fall clothes, and I for one am thrilled. I love summer more than any other season, but fall apparel is definitely the best. New jeans, sweaters, and leather pieces do a lot to help me get over the winding down of my favorite season.

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.

Madewell

Best place in the world to buy jeans?  Madewell.  I know this is not news to anyone.  Not only are they well-made (made well?  Heh.  Nevermind.)  But Madewell offers free hemming at all of its stores.  This wax-coated pair is on of my favorites.  They’re perfect for strolling around downtown Detroit on a Sunday afternoon.
