henry ford museum

On this rainy day, we chose to attend the 100th Anniversary Titanic Exhibition at the Henry Ford Museum. If this ever comes to your town, you must see it. So many great artifacts are displayed, along with these boarding passes that represent passengers of the Titanic. (I had to rely on myself for pictures, explaining the minimal outfit photos taken). I’m not one for history, but I was extremely excited about the little bit of fashion history that we spotted. I think my 80’s inspired top was appropriate for this day!!!

…”not-so-white” christmas

Thanks to InStyle’s December issue, choosing my Christmas morning outfit was simple. What better way to get inspiration then from fashion magazines which resulted in cotton, cotton, and more cotton. Sitting on the couch, drinking coffee, resting with Max the Boxer, and opening presents call for a comfortable yet stylish outfit for the photo-necessary moments. I enjoy the fact that Christmas is a day of family and staying inside. I cooked, for the first time, Mom’s roll-up pancakes and they were a complete success. A repeat of Thanksgiving day dinner along with a few beverages, topped off with chocolate from my stocking.

toys 4 tots

So I don’t have the most glamorous job, but I do get the opportunity to be a part of some amazing events including Toys 4 Tots. I couldn’t think of a more heart warming way to start my Christmas spirit then to help raise thousands of dollars and collect hundreds of toys for those little ones who don’t usually have a Christmas. Working at a Harley-Davidson dealership and on my feet all day, comfort sometimes wins the battle when choosing the outfit…just a casual day at work!!!

masculine feminine

I just love the trend of mixing masculine and feminine. It’s a go-to for me when I’m having a “not sure what to wear” kind of day. My latest trip to the thrift store landed me this jacket…a must have, in my opinion, to a wardrobe. Black, versatile, and most importantly comfortable. Brightened up with my first DIY bracelet, I’m happy to share this outfit post.
