my style: little black fringe dress

(And girl likes to twirl). I am starting to think I should only buy evening wear based on how big the urge is to spin while in the dressing room. I’m pretty sure it guarantees a fun night ahead.

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!

in my bag: heading to the cabin

in my bag // smitten studioWe are heading to the cabin this week and I’m so ready, my bags are already packed. Here’s a peek at a few things that will be coming along with me and a few that are still on my cabin wardrobe wish list.

The weather in Michigan is generally unpredictable and especially this time of year, I think anything could happen. I just saw it was 90 degrees there today but will get back into the 40s by friday, so layers are key. While I’m hoping for some beach time, I’m sure the sweaters will have to come out and those boots are always handy for tromping around the woods.

Shopping guide: 1: Gold Beach Bag from Asos // 2: Hunter Boots from Shopbop // 3: Knitted Cardi from TopShop // 4: Cuttoff Shorts by Siwy Camilla // 5: Fedora by Topshop // 6: Studded Sandals by Michael Kors // 7: Silver Bikini from Topshop // 8: Denim Tee by Madewell // 9: Maxi Dress by Asos

pattern spy: lemons

Pattern Spy: Hearts

Pattern-spy-hearts

I am not usually drawn to a heart motif, they can get a little too saccharine too quick. However, when done well they can add just the right amount of sweetness, like these guys above … and of course, the ban.do girls also really know what they are doing with a heart or two.
