REO Town Exploring

A few weekends ago when Brady was visiting, we decided to do a little exploring! I’ve been living in Lansing for almost two years now, but I haven’t actually seen a whole lot of it. When you don’t have a car, it’s a bit hard to get around. Luckily, Brady has one – kinda the only reason I’m dating him. :-/ (kidding!)

Lansing has a few different sections to it. I’ve visited Old Town a few times, and it’s one of my favorite places! I’ve heard a bit about REO town, so we thought that we would take a peek!

The Verdict: It’s super cute there! We didn’t get a chance to try any of the food, so obviously we have to go back?? They had some cute little shops we stopped in, and we watched the train zip by. All in all, it was a perfect little getaway.

While we were there, we snapped a few photos! I’ll link all the products from each of the outfits below!


 

We found the cutest little wall, and I was obsessed with the colors!

Shop the Look: Sweater (Similar)  | Jeans | Shoes

 

Shop the Look: Beret | Jacket (Similar) | Jeans | Shoes

I thought the red and white with my pink beret was the perfect color combo for  Valentine’s season. While Brady and I were snapping these photos, a guy came up to us and started taking a video?! He’s a photographer though, and thankfully he was super kind about it! He thought it was cool that we were doing all this ourselves, and wanted to share. I wish I had gotten his info!

Also- if you want to see more of the couple photos, check out this post!

& that’s all for today!

Starry Eyed + Custom Illustrations

Real quick before we start…I want to do a little shameless plug for my custom illustrations! They’re starting to pick up quite a bit, so I would recommend getting your orders in before the turnaround time needs to be extended! They’re some of my favorite things to do, and every time I get a new

Pink Skies + A Sunset Playlist

When the weather was a bit warmer, the best place to watch the sunset in Lansing was from the top of our apartment’s parking garage. It’s high enough and it overlooks the Capitol. We (my roommates & I) used to have somewhat of a tradition of going out and watching it at the beginning of

2 Years & Counting

Anniversaries are so special to me, and I’m incredibly happy to be celebrating my second one with this guy! We started dating when we were 17 year old high school babies, and it feels like it was lightyears ago! Now, we’re both in our second year of college, and we’ve been dating long-distance way longer

Cozy at the Capitol

First things first, I can’t believe we’re already a month into 2018! I think it may just be because I’m getting older, or the fact that I’m in college, but time has been seriously flying by. At the end of every month, when I look back, it just seems like it was such a whirlwind!

10 Things I Love Tuesday

I got the inspiration for this post from Laura over on A Beautiful Mess. She has a little series where she talks about 10 things she loves every Sunday, whether it be a new jacket or something she’s added into her routine. I decided to make 2018 the year where I focus on celebrating the

Cultivating Hygge in 2018

I first stumbled upon the concept of hygge about a year ago. Initially, it really just confused me, and I didn’t look into it much further. Recently, however, I decided to do a bit more research. Its been popping up everywhere I look, and I wanted to see what the hype was about! So! Without

Hi There, 2018

Happy New Year! This post is coming a couple days late, but I figured I would still share. It’s always a good time to reflect and set some new goals for yourself, even if it isn’t on the 1st. I took a few days off to spend time with my family, but I’ve got lots
