Curating Ann Arbor

As you may have remembered my daughter & I took a college trip in September to Ann Arbor, Michigan. Since its a substantial drive from our hometown & neither of us had been to Ann Arbor before, we made it a long weekend.

We spent the weeks leading up to our trip sharing places to eat, things to see, & the weather forecast back & forth in preparation. We knew we’d spend most of our days away from our airbnb & walking as much as possible.  Being several hours to our North we figured the weather may be milder than the still nearly 100° days we were having at home. It looked like we were going to luck out & have some gorgeous days topping out in the 80s.

Obviously determining a an appropriate wardrobe was key. I had 2 looks in mind, athleisure & quirky college town. Which turns out may be the best way to describe A², a quirky school spirited college town.  My travel clothes would be very basic. Nothing much to see there folks.

Day 1: College Tour, The Arb, Festifall on Central Campus, & Dinner/Coffee downtown.


  • American Eagle Denim Jacket
  • Love Tree Utility Vest
  • H&M Crop Top
  • F21 High Rise Leggings
  • Brooks Sneakers

Day 2: Movie at Michigan Theater, Lunch at Zingerman’s, exploring Kerrytown, finding The Cube, Nickel’s Arcade, exploring Downtown, Dinner at Spencer


  • Rayban Wayfarers
  • Fossil Crossbody Bag
  • Gliks Blanket Scarf
  • Mumford & Sons Concert Tee
  • Simply Vera Skirt
  • Toms Sandals

I kinda feel like I nailed it. I felt comfortable & stylish the whole weekend. Only thing that would’ve made me look more local was blue & maize.
