fashion friday | heading home to the mitten

I am so excited to head home to Michigan this weekend.  S and I get to celebrate my grandpa’s 90th birthday family-reunion-style with cousins and aunts and uncles that haven’t all been in the same room for over a decade.  What a special party it’s going to be!

My grandpa, Martin, back in the day – what a guy.  My grandma, Adeline, keeps this picture of him on her dresser.

I love it.  He still wears that expression like a champ at age 90, too.

Michigan here I come!  This is my casual Friday work-to-airport ensemble featuring my new shop tote bag.  This thing is seriously perfect – side pocket at the perfect height placement for easily retrieving my cell/metrocard/keys and the size fits everything I need for work (wood samples, papers, tape measure), including a change of clothes AND my small purse, no sweat.  It’s quickly becoming my go-to carry all.  Get it (and others) here.

What’s your travel wear?

decor to fashion | pick your pillow

As a designer, fashion and interiors go hand and hand.  In order to convey my Interior Design aesthetic to friends and clients alike, I pay close attention to how I present myself.  Fashion is such a fun way to show your taste and sense of style, and there are a zillion ways to do it.

Today I thought I’d mix up some fun outfits inspired by pillows from my artshop to show you what I mean.

Which pillow would you wear?
