These photos were taken over a recent summer weekend. It was hot, it’s been a wonderfully hot summer, and I loved creating different looks. It’s my favorite time of year for so many reasons including the fashion.
Over these two days, I captured the spirit of summer if two very different looks. The first, a simple skirt paired with a patterned top. I added my favorite fancy flip flops and dark blue lipstick. At first I felt like the lipstick was meant to only be worn in the winter … okay at first, I felt self-conscious wearing it anytime. Now, I love the dark contrast even in summer.
I spent the day in Birmingham, which included a stop at my favorite Starbucks Reserve.
The second look, one for a day spent in downtown Detroit, an outing that ended with a stop at new Bar Kiesling. It’s one of my new favorite stops with a knowledgeable bartender and carefully crafted cocktails that are well balanced and not too spirit forward.
This look featured my comfortable go-to dress and my least comfortable but oh-so-cute butterfly shoes. I styled my hair differently and switched up the lipstick too.
