Pink & Yellow



Three weeks ago while visiting my home state, I spent a day at Henry Ford Museum with my parents. Call me a nerd, but I've been there more times than I can count, and the experience is always fresh and new and exciting.



I dressed comfortably for this outing, as we'd be walking for a few hours. This quarter-inch heel was perfect for the occasion. I also wore layers, due to the chilly weather, and one can never know if the heat will be on inside.



Outfit details:
Tee, skirt, cardigan - Ann Taylor
Socks - Target
Shoes - Plato's Closet
Earrings - The Secret Closet
Necklace - Express
Watch - Michael Kors



My favorite exhibits feature home decor, jewelry & women's suffrage.





The museum houses the actual bus that Rosa Parks sat on!



Of course, the main event is the car collection -- much to my father's delight.



That night, my sister Liz (on left) had a party at her house in Detroit. My cousin Nikki (on right) visited us from Virginia! It was a lovely reunion.





I had a great time hanging out with my cousin and sister and her friends. The next morning, we walked to organic-and-vegan-friendly Avalon for coffee & cookies.



Other perfectly pink options:

  12. Love this look, lady! I have been looking for a fabulous men's watch like the one you're wearing for ages. Forgot how awesome MK watches are. That necklace is so charming as well. It really pulled the whole look together. Your glasses are adorable. And you go to the Henry Ford Museum as many times as you want...it's your world! ;)

  15. Love the photo of the "Alice Paul" wall! That is so cool. One of my most fave movies is about the women's suffrage movement with Hillary Swank playing Alice Paul. Check it out if you have never seen it, it's called "Iron Jawed Angels." Great post!~Meredith

  26. Thanks for the comments, everybody!

    @Sweet: My hair routine... Frizz-Ease Shampoo & Conditioner, L'Oreal Sulfate-Free Deep Conditioner, Garnier Fructis Leave-In Conditioner, Bumble & Bumble Curling Gel. I don't consider my hair healthy at all -- it's very damaged from being colored over the years, and generally being curly & course -- so I need to use a lot of product. I've gotten so many comments on my hair that I posted a timeline showing past styles and colors. To be honest, my hair was so tangly before my trip to Michigan that my mom spent four hours brushing it while I was visiting her! The real secret? I'd gotten a trim the day before these photos were taken. Don't tell! ;)
