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

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 [...]

Family Style: Record Shopping

Sunday we checked out a new-to-us record store in town, Found Sound. Loved it! They had a really great selection of records in their bargain bins that I’ll be sure to shop from for Record Notebooks in the future, and have awesome prices on used CDs and records, not to mention a little selection of [...]

Family Style: Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday was a chilly one, but we still dressed as if it was spring that day (we can pretend, right?). We went to early morning church service and had brunch afterwards. Here’s what we wore: Me: Vintage ’70s Floral Empire Waist Dress Tree Necklace – Gift from Dan, from Naka Grey Faux Suede Shoes [...]

Family Style: Run du Nain Rouge

The legend of the Nain Rouge goes back hundreds of years in Detroit – a red dwarf that brings doom and haunts Detroit since the first settlers. There is a march each year in Midtown to drive the Nain Rouge out of the city, and last weekend was the first annual Run du Nain Rouge [...]
