Family Style in New Orleans

A couple of weeks ago, our family went to New Orleans for the first time. It was a really fun trip, full of great food and YES, kid-friendly stuff to do too. We definitely want to head back again and explore more! Three of us happened to all be wearing vintage on the same day, [...]

Family Style: Nick Cave Date Night

In case you can’t tell by my smile in this picture, I was beyond excited to see Nick Cave a few nights ago in Detroit at the Masonic Temple. If you haven’t seen him in concert yet, you really should – he performed for over 2 hours and is one of the most charismatic musicians [...]

Wearing Vintage on Vacation

Recently, Dan and I took a trip to Playa Del Carmen which was one of the best weeks ever. We escaped the cold Michigan weather and our responsibilities for five days, and had a fantastic time enjoying the sunshine, beach, pool and a lot of margaritas. I was happy to pull out some of my [...]

Family Style: School Style

Now that school is in session (not to mention all the other things we do), it’s nearly impossible to remember to get us all together in a picture nowadays, so I thought I’d grab some pics over a week of some of our fav outfits for a looooooong overdue Family Style post! Big thanks to [...]

Family Style: Just Me, San Francisco

One last post from our trip to San Francisco! On one of our last days in town, we randomly woke up at 5am. For no reason. Then I said “Why don’t we just go watch the sunrise?”. So we went to the best place we could think of to do it – the Golden Gate [...]

Family Style: Vintage Spring

I couldn’t be happier with the weather right now! It is sunny, warm and pretty much perfect. Time to wear all the vintage T shirts – all of us! Roy: Vintage T shirt – thrifted by Mom Overalls – Vintage Levi’s (Big E, even! One of my very favorite finds, ever). Found at a clothing [...]

Family Style: Monday

A typical Monday for our family: Roy, Della and I hanging out and being comfy at home – playing and learning while Dan is at work, and I get to work while the kids nap. Here’s what we wore one Monday where it was particularly crazy cold and snowing like mad outside. Roy: Vintage Sweater [...]

Family Style: Franklin Cider Mill

One of my favorite ways to celebrate the arrival of fall is a trip to the cider mill. There’s something about fresh apple cider and warm doughnuts that makes me ok with the falling temps. In Metro Detroit we are lucky to have a few cider mills…my favorite is Yates, but Franklin Cider Mill is [...]

Family Style: Going Nowhere

An absolutely perfect day; Nothing to do but just enjoy the weather. We chased Roy around the backyard and played the sandbox, relaxed on the couch and on the deck. Here’s what we wore… Dan: White/Pinkman 2012 T shirt – Skreened.com Shorts – Adidas Roy: Vintage ’80s Polo shirt from Sears, a gift from Carey [...]

Family Style: At the Park

A couple of weeks ago we walked down to a new park in the area on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It was a very hot day but we had a nice walk together, a little fun on the jungle gym, and sat in the shady pavilion for a bit. We took lots of pictures of [...]
