On my second day of playing tourist in my hometown, we stopped by Hitsville USA (aka the Motown Museum). I passed by this place countless times on my way to high school in Detroit, but never took the time go in and check out this national treasure. Our tour started with a short film about Berry Gordy and how he got his start with an $800 loan from his family. Afterwards we got to walk in the footsteps of world-class performers like Stevie Wonder, The Jackson Five and The Supremes! To say that the experience was surreal and inspiring would be an understatement!

For this trip I packed mostly easy, effortless pieces like this Old Navy jersey cotton dress. I can’t say enough good things about it and plan on going back for it’s short-sleeve counterpart for the warmer months ahead.

Even though I was born and raised in Detroit, it wasn’t until I moved away that I truly began to appreciate all that the city has to offer. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed playing tourist in my hometown. Every time I go back, I make it a point to visit someplace new. On my last visit, Eric and I took a trip to the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House along the shores of Lake St. Clair. We arrived when they first opened and were treated to a private tour of the estate.

Over the years, we’ve toured  our fair share of stately mansions – including the homes of the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and Hersheys – but the Ford House is definitely at the top of my list of favorites. I donned my new gingham dress and giddily twirled through the gardens as we explored the grounds on our own. Before leaving, we enjoyed a delicious lunch onsite at the Cotswold Cafe. We couldn’t have asked for a more picture perfect spring morning for our excursion.

My fascination with sleeves that threaten certain disaster at the dinner table continues…

Lately, the sales section at Anthropologie has been hooking a gal up in the dress department! I copped this gorgeous bell sleeve frock a few weeks ago and tossed it into my suitcase without a second thought. I’ve worn it several times since then and have received nothing but compliments. The weather’s been super finicky lately, so this dress has been a great transitional piece. The flowy sleeves and lacy detail up top give it a summery boho vibe, but the sweater material on the bottom keeps me from freezing my assets off.
