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.

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.

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.
