packing

in my bag: michigan

in my bag // smitten studioI know we just got back from the cabin but I am already itching to return. In preparation for the next trip I thought I’d do just a little online shopping to get my summer in Michigan wardrobe up to snuff. My suitcase should be packed in 6-10 days ;).

in my bag: miami beach

in my bag miami beach // smitten studioSpeaking of escaping the construction dust… Rupe and I are heading to Miami!

Once upon a time, more then a few years ago, we both lived there (me for just two years, Rupe for more like 12). It is where Rupe got his first internship in the States after leaving university in England and it is also where I got my first internship after leaving my university in Michigan. Of course that was 8 years apart, but luckily he stuck around long enough to meet me, before we both moved to LA, separately but at the exact same time, after knowing each other for 6 months. You follow? Ha, so that’s our story in a nutshell.

Anyway, back to Miami… we are heading there to celebrate Rupert’s big 40! SO OLD, I know. :) I’ve only been back once since we moved about 7 years ago, so I am really excited to celebrate with a bunch of old friends, hit up some of our favorite spots, spend time at the beach, and take in all the art deco goodness of South Beach.

Here’s what’s going with me:

Palm Leaf Shift Dress by Just Cavalli // Hot Pink Sandals by Michael Kors // Ampersand Tee by Madewell // Aviator Sunglass by Aerie // Chiffon Romper by Fleur du Mal // Sunhat by Scala // V Neck Crop Top by TopShop // Nude Sandals by Jeffrey Campbell // Distressed Denim Skity by Paige Denim // Black & White Bikini by Ted Baker // Gold Leather bag by Baggu // Fujifilm Instaxe Mini Camera // Blush Leather Clutch by American Apparel

in my bag: home for the holidays

in my bag, michigan // smitten studioLike I mentioned before, I am really looking forward to heading to my parents house in Michigan for some downtime. I’ll be packing my coziest sweaters and comfiest pajamas (which I will most likely be wearing for a large portion of the days while we happily hibernate through the holiday). My to do list has a long way to go before we head out, but you better believe my bags are packed!
