Life Lately


Hello hello! It's been a while, hasn't it? Things have been busy over here, in my little corner of the world. Our wedding is now a mere six weeks away (!), so we've been hurrying to tie up all the little details before the big day comes.

Dress: Pyne & Smith / Scarf: Secondhand via ThredUp

A few weeks ago, I bought two Pyne & Smith dresses, and pretty much haven't worn anything else since. Adorable? Check! Pockets? Check! Comfortable? Check! The less work I have to put into an outfit, the better. Especially during these hot summer months, all I want to do is throw on an easy dress and call it a day.   


I've been trying to make more of an effort to plan out my meals. I find that if I don't make plans about what I'm going to eat, I end up eating either something boring and unsatisfying (think, plain rice), or something less healthy (or creative) than I'd like. I work at a cafe, so I eat at least one, sometimes two meals out of my day at work. Theoretically, this should make meal planning much easier, but because my schedule changes day to day, it can be difficult to stick to a schedule. 




This past weekend my bridal brigade threw me the most amazing bachelorette party. We went to Detroit for lunch, had coffee, and wandered around the Heidelberg project. If you've never been, you should definitely put it on your list! 

Here is the description from their website:

The Heidelberg Project is an outdoor art environment in the heart of an urban area and a Detroit based community organization designed to improve the lives of people and neighborhoods through art.
The elements of the canvas contain recycled materials and found objects, most of which were salvaged from the streets of Detroit. Each work of art is carefully devised to tell a story about current issues plaguing society. As a whole, the HP is symbolic of how many communities in Detroit have become discarded. It asks questions and causes the viewer to think. When you observe the HP, what do you really see? Is it art? Is it junk? Is it telling a story? That’s for you to decide.

How have you been spending your summer? Do you have any goals for fall? 

Thanks for stopping by!
