Voigt House

This weekend, I made a quick trip over to the Voigt House, which is really close to my new apartment. This elegant and perfectly preserved Victorian mansion was built in 1895. The house is still furnished with the original belongings of the Voigt family. I wish I could have gotten a peek inside. I'd love to hop over and tour this house soon. History, especially local, fascinates me so much.

I saw an e-blast from Madewell recently where the model was wearing double polka-dots and I loved it. So cute! So I thought I'd try my own spin on it. I just got this navy skirt from DamesMercury. It's too pretty and I'm excited to wear it in summer. It's been chilly here the past few days! We even saw a few snowflakes yesterday. Brrr. I'm ready to put away tights. I thought this necklace went perfect with this spot too. Kelly from Honey & Marrow and her husband find old vintage goods and make them into new creations. Lovely, right?

I'm really excited May is upon us this week! It's one of my favorite months, especially because it ends with Memorial Day and Memorial Day means summer is here! I keep telling myself that I'm going to have a "summer". Windows down, dirty feet, constantly in a bathing suit, windblown hair. I'm excited for all of it. I have too much planned... as always! I wouldn't have it any other way.

A quick note, I'll be at the LOFT Grand Opening Event in Grand Rapids this Wednesday! They are located in Breton Village and it's from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. I'll be there with Kayley from Sidewalk Ready too. You can receive 25% off your purchase and there will be music, refreshments and treats. RSVP by April 30 to LOFTevents@skoogproductions.com. See you there!
