Midtown Detroit

Midtown Detroit

Midtown Detroit is located just north of Downtown and is one of the most booming areas in Detroit. The area has boomed because of all the new developments that have been popping up the last few years. Midtown has tons of art galleries, restaurants, museums and trendy boutiques all in walk-able distance. The area seems very community based so there is always something going on like poetry reading or misc performances.

Some of my favorite spots in Midtown are located in the Cass and Canfield (or Midtown North Cass) area. Two of favorite boutiques from the area are called Shinola and sister their store Willys. Shinola and Willys are connected to each other not only in area but both only sell goods from America. Willys has an assortment of brands including FILSON, STEVEN, ALAN, MOLLUSK, CLARE V, while Shinola focuses on leather goods, hand crafted bikes and fine watches. Pictures from inside are above.

Notable food mentions include:
Avalon – serving up Michigan-made and organic goodies since 1997
La feria – Spanish Tapas

The Nautical look

September 28, 2014

I love to squeeze out the last bit out of summer before it runs into fall. Today a group of friends and I went out on the docks to cruise the Pacific and enjoy the sun. I’m lucky to have friends with boats so I don’t have to spend the money on one. Here’s one way to get “the Nautical Look” without dropping anchor on a new boat or tons of money in department stores.

Seattle weather has been so nice lately I felt like taking a cruise on the beach with my new Longboard (Dusters)I’m trying to get as much in boarding before the end of the season. Summer is definitely becoming my favorite season of all. I hope this warm weather lasts forever! My outfit: Shirt/Workshop Tank/Express Shorts/Levis Shoes/Converse

Deighton cup 2014 was amazing! Not only was the event filled with awesome people dressed in 1920’s style fashions but there was delicious food by Cocktails and Canapes and great musical entertainment too. This is my second time going to Deighton cup and some how it’s good every year. Maybe it’s because they always pick days with excellent weather or maybe it’s the type of people the event draws. Either way you look at it, what a great day to be in Vancouver!

Outfit Post: Printed Patterned Shirts

June 12, 2014

Printed patterned shirts have been popular for a while now but I feel the real secret to wearing them is the fit. With this outfit I’ve paired my button down shirt with brown drill shorts and white Sperrys. Also, buttoning your shirt all the way to the top will gives it a trendy sophisticated look. Try it!

Outfit details:

Paisley ShirtT – ZARA MAN
Drill Shorts – Made and Crafted Levis
Striper CVO Color Dip Sneaker – Sperry
New Wayfarer Glasses – Ray Ban
