When I first approached a few local bloggers about an event concept I had, I didn’t anticipate the beauty that would come from it. Local creatives meeting each other for the first time face-to-face instead of just over Instagram, being able to feature apparel & accessories from around Grand Rapids, and even being the soft opening at an incredible new sandwich shop @grainsandwichshop to help promote their opening. It’s awesome to see how many people are impacted for good when you go after an idea, invest your whole heart & let the Lord lead.
Working with so many local shops & creatives was such an enlivening experience! Plus, connecting with my local community & building a network for each person to connect & grow was the coolest thing to watch! I walked away from the @meetcutecommunity event proud of what had been accomplished & proud of the fact that we created a space for local growth!
This (majorly) awesome faux fur jacket is from local shop @blcklamb & the beauty I styled it on is @rachelgabes – she’s an incredible photographer, guys! But aside from that she’s kind, sincere, relatable and hearing her story was so inspiring! Thanks for coming and letting me style you in this sassy number, Rachel! ❤️

A quick stop into the @thesaltedcupcake is the best choice you’ll ever make. (Ok maaaayyybe that’s a tad extreme, but I’m not totally convinced it’s not still the truth!) The flavors, the ambiance, the quaintness & sweetness make it such a fun experience! And they didn’t even tell me to say all of this!! Do yourself a favor and go get a cupcake! They’re closed on Monday’s which is the pits since it’s always on a Monday I need a cupcake-pick-me-up but I just keep daydreaming of them until Tuesday rolls around! They’re the best cupcakes I’ve ever eaten & the flavors are so creative & fun! Ps. I shrunk those pants… 😩
