I’ve been traveling back to my hometown of Detroit more recently as of late, and it’s been incredible to see the city transform a little more each time I visit. Old stately homes are being restored to their former glory, and the downtown area is springing back to life. The weather gods smiled upon us on our last trip, and the temps climbed to an unheard of 70 degress! If you’ve ever experienced a typical Michigan winter, then you know exactly how HUGE (and rare) that is. So of course, I ditched my tights and headed to one of my favorite spots in the city – Belle Isle. And what could be a more fitting outfit for such a place than bell sleeves?!

I know a lot of ladies have been on the fence about bell sleeves (because accidentally dragging your outfit through spaghetti sauce is no fun), but this is one bandwagon that I’m riding wholeheartedly.



Closet Confection: Renaissance City

On our last evening in Detroit, my husband and I snuck away from our family for a spell to take in a romantic dinner at Coach Insignia which sits atop the GM Renaissance Center.  We got gussied up and snapped a few photos along the waterfront before being whisked up 72 stories in a glass elevator to our dining destination.  And as proof-positive that you can take the girl outta Detroit, but you can’t take the Detroit outta the girl, I substituted my usual pre-dinner glass of Prosecco for a bottle of Detroit’s finest: Faygo Rock & Rye!detroit22detroit2faygo-rock-and-ryelace-dress-1detroit24lace-dress-5detroit23silver-shoes{Zara Lace Dress, Prada Baroque Sunglasses, J.
