Leather + Suede

Andrea and I had quite the dramatic shoot the other day! It was a little cloudy outside, but the air was warming up, so we took advantage of it. We got to the top of one of our favorite parking structures and to our surprise, a tornado was passing through! Not really… but it sure as heck felt like one! We started our shoot by chasing Andrea’s hat around for about 5 minutes. Frustrated and cold, we eventually just said forget it and went to our usual spot- Governor Snyder’s parking garage (LOL). I’ll be honest, all I want to

Western Vibes

I’ve always been intrigued by bohemian style, but I never gravitate towards it. If someone were to style me in a boho outfit, I would love it and rock it, but I would never style myself in it. I was playing in Andrea’s closet (my favorite hobby) and saw this hat and loved it. The color is brilliant, the wide brim gives it a curious side, and the belt gives it a western vibe. And this is the closest I come to creating a “boho” look… and I kinda love it. Wearing my Current Elliott jeans yet again. The chunkiest sweater

Indian Summer

Leonardo is probably having a heyday right now. How on earth is it mid-November and the high tomorrow is 69?! I looked up what the weather was a year ago today and there was a complete whiteout. But hey, I’m not complaining because I know what is coming. Winter is coming. In the meantime, I plan on taking full advantage of these beautiful days by going for lots of walks/hikes and keeping my Fall wardrobe alive and well. I got these jeans this past August while out in Santa Barbara and have yet to wash them. Gross, maybe, but they wear

Goal Crusher

The minute that this line came out, it inspired me. “Goal crusher.” It just pumps me up to crush my goals! I paired it with my “free spirit” bra, which brought even more inspiration. A gypsy princess crushing her goals. Yes. I have definitely been teeter tottering with my goals lately. I am normally very disciplined at keeping my “eyes on my prize”, but recently… I haven’t cared. It is a goal of mine to workout at least 4x a week, but that hasn’t been happening. It is my goal to not eat processed foods, but yesterday I was deep into

Day-to-Night, Black & White

I am indifferent about being “trendy”. I guess it depends on what the trend is and if I like it – haha. Chokers and bodysuits are definitely back in trend and I wrestled with the idea of them. I love both, but I often associate the trend with a girl that… may not be the classiest? For lack of a better word. They aren’t always styled in a classic, elegant way. My mind changed when I grabbed coffee with Andrea and she was wearing the most chic outfit that included a choker. I love, love, loved the look! A look that screams

Mother Loves You

Gird your loins because this is about to be a lengthy post. So much has been happening (surprise, surprise) in the Howard household! Sam and I love to keep busy and we are really, really good at it. The past 3 weeks Sam and I have been in-between leases and therefore – homeless. Dun, dun, duuuunnnn! Thank goodness we have amazing friends who let us stay at their apartments and family on the weekends. We basically lived at Whole Foods for all three meals since we weren’t really able to cook. I now know every worker there by name and can

That commercial is so stinking hilarious. I can’t believe that it is MID-JULY. Blowing my mind right now. Sam and I are moving out of our apartment this Friday and into a new condo! I am so excited for it. We will have so much more room (for activities – Step Brothers, anyone?), a finished basement, our own garage… Ah! It’ll just be so much better.

Canadian Tuxedo

Hahahaha, I don’t even know where to begin with this post! Andrea and I went to Grand Rapids the other day because we are obsessed with all of their restaurants and coffee bars. And alcoholic bars. Anyways, after bouncing around town all day, we ended up at the Reserve for a glass of wine. Mistake #1. Have you ever seen that popular Facebook post that was circulating with the 4 pictures of people after drinking  wine? First picture was before wine, second picture was after 1 glass, third picture was after 2 glasses, and fourth picture was after 3 glasses. I’m

Festival Vibes

Yes, yes, Coachella has already passed, but I am still dreaming of being there. This outfit randomly happened while playing in Andrea’s closet. I showed up at her house wearing this crop, these shorts, and these shoes, but wasn’t sure how I wanted to style it. I saw her kimono and the backpack and it all came together! I took a step away from my preppy style and bought this cute crochet crop top. I mean, it was $10. I thought it would be the perfect summer top! It has been 90 degrees and humid the past week in Michigan,

Dress HERE // Shoes HERE // Bag SIMILAR HERE // Watch HERE // Sunnies HERE // My current go-to for summer BBQ’s, brunch dates, and traveling. It is so comfortable and super cool! Michigan has been really humid lately, so this dress has gotten a lot of wear. I accessorized with all gold errythang, even though silver would go well too. I don’t discriminate between the two. I’ve always dressed really preppy, but my curious mind has been experimenting with the boho style. I mean, it is summer. Bohemian style and summer go together like pb&j. It just works. Stay
