This weekend my boyfriend took me to Columbus, OH to see Cirque Du Soleil! It was his gift to me for our anniversary. We spent the whole day in Columbus, starting with a delicious brunch at a place called “Knead“. We chose this place because it was all freshly made with locally produced ingredients. It was a pretty cute place and the food was delicious! I had gingerbread pancakes — YUM!

This dress makes me so incredibly happy! The color is so vibrant and the full skirt is so fun to run around in. It kinda makes me feel like I’m wearing a costume, but I don’t care! I love it too much! It’s got to be the best thing I’ve ever found at a thrift shop. AND a bonus was that it was super cheap because the zipper was falling out. Took me all of 10 minutes to fix that!

After Brunch we walked to COSI!

It’s a super fun science museum I hadn’t been too since elementary school, and I was way excited to go back! We had tons of hands-on science-y fun. [PS. Brian loves that sweater and wears it everywhere lol :p]

There was a cool exhibit called “Progress”, and they had a whole 1950s town set up. We decided to take advantage of the 50s scenery since I was wearing a 50s dress, and snagged a few photos!

OKAY. So. Cirque Du Soleil. First off, let me tell you, it was absolutely one of THE most amazing things I’ve ever seen! Neither of us really knew what to expect, or if it would actually be cool, and it far exceeded both of our expectations! It was beautiful and impressive, the “clowns” were hilarious, and the acrobatic stunts were terrifying and flawless! The overall theme was actually kind of dark and eerie, which we loved, and the music and costumes made it feel like we were watching some little Russian circus in the middle of no where 100 years ago — amazing.

Basically, we had a great mini weekend get away. :] Sometimes, those are the best kinds of vacations!

I’m super excited that it’s December! Christmas-time is one of my faaavorite times of the year. Everything sparkles and smells like pine & fresh baked cookies.

Just got these boots in the mail this week! You may remember them from my November wish list earlier this month. They are aaamazing & I’m so glad I bought them. And this little red dress is perfect for dressing up or down. I’m excited to wear it this month because the bright red color makes me feel super Christmas-y!

I have loved the maiden braid hair style for so long, but every time I tried to rock it, I looked too milk-maidy [and not in a cute way lol]. I don’t have bangs, and I usually part my hair down the middle, and I think that’s why I didn’t like it. So, this time I decided to part my hair on the side and it did the trick! I will definitely be wearing my hair like this a lot in the future. It’s super easy to do and I’m always looking for new ways to wear my hair up and out of my face.

Today is my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend [ ❤ ! ] So, I took the opportunity to dress up and take some cute outfit photos!

I cannot tell you how happy I am with this shoe purchase! These shoes were SO cheap and got to my house in 2 days AND the quality is actually pretty good! Absolutely better than I was expecting from a pair of pumps that cost less than $20. AND they are totally comfy.

We had an awesome day in Detroit going to the Belle Isle Aquarium & Conservatory. I’ll post some pics from that later this week!

It’s getting colder so I’ve been layering more and wearing more sweaters. I am generally NOT into having to layer, and winter clothes in general, mostly because I hate being cold. BUT I am really loving this floral pants/leggings trend going on this season. It really brightens up my day wearing something so summery in the winter, and makes the cold a little more bearable!

This dress is one of my faaavorites. It’s a young girls dress from the 60s/70s so it’s real short , but it works for me because I am real short! I especially love the Aztec pattern & colors of the fabric on the top half. It’s a great dress for Fall-Winter because of the long-sleeves and the heavy 70s polyester fabric. It was an extra fun find because it’s from Salvation Army, and not an actual vintage store! It’s always exciting to find good vintage gems in thrift stores.

I looove pastels, no matter what time of year it is! Look, even my tattoo matched my outfit. ;]  Pastels are a great way to bring some color & fun to your day even if the weather is dreary and grey. [rhyme unintentional lol]

This necklace is my faaavorite, but I couldn’t find it in this color online for you! Target.com has it in a bunch of other colors, though, and I highly recommend it. I want to buy them all!

Hope you have a wonderful evening!

I spent the rest of my day in Detroit with Ella Swenson, the founder of Ella Sven. Here’s what she wore:

Ella is a wonderful & driven lady who just launched her online shop. You should go check it out for. sure. You can definitely expect an interview with her sometime in the near future!

We toured an awesome old building full of unique studio spaces. After our tour, we got dinner at The Green Dot. I should have taken some pictures there, but I was way too busy scarfing down the amazing food — deeelicous gourmet-style American comfort food [meat, veg & vegan options!]. I highly recommend it if you are in the Detroit area! The best part about it is you can basically try everything you want because it’s SUPER inexpensive and portions are small. I tried the truffle & herb fries, black bean + avocado slider, mac n cheese, hummus & rosemary pita, and the Nutella/Fluff Smore for dessert. Let me tell you, they were all flawless, my mouth is watering now just writing about it! I’m dying to go back, and when I do, I’ll definitely share some pictures. :]
