Basic (Spring Transition)

Now even though the calendar finally says Spring it takes Michigan until mid to late May to warm up!


These Gap boyfriend jeans are worn a lot when it’s starts to warm up. They are lighter and cropped (on me) they are cute with booties, flats and sandals. Mine are old but I’ll link some similar ones.


The Lush tunic is perfect almost year round! I have it in olive and black. I’m hoping to add a lighter color.


Now if had been 50 degrees or higher out I would have worn a pair of my laceups. It was freezing!! So booties won!


This outfit screams Jaymie. I wear a version of this almost everyday. I wish the dish was higher up on the fireplace. Oh well!


These are the Sugarfix by Baublebar earrings at Target. They are lightweight, the baublebar ones are really heavy, I like these so much better!! They come in a lot of colors and the price is great!


You can totally jazz this basic outfit up with a statement necklace or a fun bag!

Trenchtastic

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! Besides getting asked if I played basketball (tall girl) are you Irish is the next question I always get!! I am a little Irish as well as Native American ,English and German! That’s just my Dads side my Mom doesn’t know her side. Hopefully we can figure that out!! Anyways on to this great jacket!

The Trench is a must have in your coat wardrobe .

Long or short or both!! I’ve had this short trench for years! It’s from Gap.

I love these these gap jeans. Have had them for years and they were a tad snug when I put them on after being put away for the winter!!  Yikes! Extra sit-ups required!!!!!

Pink and Gray

I’m not a fan of pink in large quantities. The red hair and my skin tone don’t care for it. The only exception this scarf! This was a gift for my bday years ago from a good friend. I just love it!


It looks beautiful with gray and a nice Malbec.


Paired with darker denim and booties it’s a winning combo for me. That fluff of white in the pics is my dog nephew Max a St. Bernard!

Spring Velvet

I’m not ready to let these pants go away till Fall so I Springed them up a bit.

I’m loving them with my white tee ( how adorbs is it)  #girlstrong! Great tee for me to wear to my 2 very sporty girls games with my denim jacket.


The wind was intense and thankfully we got a few pics where my hair doesn’t look insane!


These lace ups!! Love them! I’ll have another post on Wednesday featuring my fav new sweater! Then we are heading into to Spring Fashions!! I’m hoping 3 new posts each week but we will see. 

4 years ago today my mom had a double lung transplant!! She is doing great! We are hardcore Buckeyes living in Michigan so of course she had the transplant at the U of M hospital!

Distressed Gray

The coziness of this sweater is wonderful!!!!  It feels like wearing a soft fluffy cloud.


It’s higher in the front and lower in the back, I love this look in a top.  I’ve been wearing these Target otk boots almost everyday they are that comfortable .


Added this fun shiny clutch, I love the detail on it. Great fun casual look! I’m hoping to jump into some transitional Spring  looks next week. I live in Michigan so we can be bundled up till mid May here! Ha!! I will put the boots away in favor of my flats , sandals and wedges!

Basic Black

Today I’m showing you a couple of great looks featuring the same pants, cardigan and tank.

I’ve had these Gap super skinnies forever! I love them! I recently picked up this Topshop tank. I needed a dressier tank and this one is great. I love a long cardigan and this Target one is a really nice length.


Swapped the necklace for a mint scarf and flats for otk boots!  How great is this tote!!! It holds tons and keeps Kate (my purse) from getting dirty at all the gyms I’m in watching basketball.

Hope you enjoyed both options!

Black Velvet +Link Up

The warm weather left are last day in Traverse City! It was freezing and windy. This is a variation on my wine conference day 2 outfit.


Gorgeous right!! This was the view from the room. Stunning!


Getting all the wear out of these pants before it gets to warm out. Love them! Again if you don’t have the Lush tunic!! Buy it!!! You won’t regret it.

Today was all about sensory wine evaluation. Smelly!! So interesting.


I had just experienced cork taint!


Not the best angle! Was rushing! Ha!


Was a interesting session after which I treated myself to a vodka tonic!


Love happy hour pricing!

We left late and live almost 4 hours away.


We got a little slap happy on the way home! Haha! We really had the best time and can’t wait till next year! Check out my friends Vineyard here. It’ll be a year in April that the first vines went in the ground!!

Up North

For the first full day of workshops we wanted to look both professional and put together.

Since it was so warm I wore these adorable new lace ups I got at Target the night before!


This tank is lower cut then I like but the necklace covers up my cleavage!! Ha!


This was a very easy outfit to wear all day.


Jess got this adorable tote from Walmart to go with her outfit. Love the pop of pink!


The resort had 5 different restaurants to choose from but my options were limited and I ate this 3 times!! Lol! It was really good.
Wine Fluency! My 4hour workshop with a master sommelier. It was very informative. I was the only one there who wasn’t a wine maker at a vineyard!! Not to toot my own horn but I did really well.

Such a great experience!
