Look :: Michigan / Comfortably Casual







Outfit details: Turban - Red Velvet. Jacket, pants, unseen top (it's this one) - Ann Taylor. Scarf - Windsor. Socks - "Borrowed" from my sister awhile ago. Shoes - Target. Glasses - My usual (buy here).


Here's the full outfit you saw a peek of in this post! I loved it so much that it's the only ensemble I wanted to wear from my suitcase full of items. I wore it for breakfast with Kelly (above) and also the day before when Ben and I went record hunting. I've realized recently that there are only a few choice outfits I like in my wardrobe, and I wear those repeatedly, and everything else just kinda sits there. I need to clear out my closet for the 1000th time this year.



But anyway, here are a few cute records I saw at Vertigo in downtown Grand Rapids. Going there was so nostalgic -- the area has changed a little, but it's mostly the same. I regret that I always lived outside of the city when I went to Grand Valley. I definitely want to spend more time there the next time I visit, because unfortunately, I could only stay in Michigan for a couple days this trip (less than 48 hours, really).

  1. oh I've been looking everywhere for a comfy moto-style jacket! I had one once and just wore it with everything...casual wear, pretty dresses to toughen them up...anything. That one looks great on you!

  2. I like this look! Very cute!!!! I do the same thing when I travel--- end up only wanting to wear one thing out of the million things I packed!

  3. I'd love a jacket like that, looks so comfortable and versatile. A new goal of mine is "minimalism," so I too want to purge the wardrobe of all the bits I never wear and keep the best of the best.

  4. Wow it looks so beautiful there! I am hopefully going for the first time next spring because my best friend and his wife moved there.

    I absolutely love your jacket!
