all items c/o Modcloth
(psst. These are totally my new favorite tights! They're perfect. I've been wearing them nonstop!)

A little while back Modcloth invited me to do a post for their Travel Bug series. In case you're not familiar their Travel Bug feature it's where bloggers share some of their favorite places in their city. It was a great excuse for me to visit all my favorite spots in Cleveland and photograph them, as if I needed one.

You can find me gushing about my favorite places to shop and eat if you're ever in the Cleveland, OH area right here! I seriously think my top four places are the bees knees and totally worth a trip.

And just because...

Special thanks to Elycia for coming out to help me because I'm a scaredy cat and totally need help when taking pictures in public!

  3. That entire outfit is PERFECTION. The nails and the asymmetrical neckline of the dress are my absolute favorite components, I think. <3 And that vintage shop in the second-to-last picture, well... I want to go to there. Badly.

  4. I'm in love with the color and fit on that dress. It's so flattering!

    A vintage department store would be so exciting to check out.

  5. Total blog girl crush! I was all *squeeeeee* earlier because we have the same dress in the same color. Creepiness aside I never thought I'd want to put Cleveland Ohio on a list of spots to visit when I trek across the USA for the 3rd time but I think the BBQ seitan sold me.

  8. I'll have to check that place out. We live in Mansfield but travel up to Cleveland when we get the chance. Which realistically is once a month or two. Our car can't do that long of a drive right now but when we get a new one, I think I've got a new place to go! Ooh!

  15. I love this all outfit! Colours are perfectly match. I like especially the cardigan, the dress, the tights, the shoes and your nails! :)

    I have got many crazy and vintage clothes in my closet, but i'm too shy to wear them in public.

    Why we haven't got this kind of shops in Hungary? :SS

  18. I wore those tights in my Friday post! Great minds... :D Those shoes are amazing. I have been thinking alot about flat shoes, lately. I currently work in an office, so I tart it up and wear heels daily, but we are trying to start a family and I have plans that may involve working from home, and really, what am going to do, flounce around the house with a baby and 400 pets? I think not. There are some lovely flattieson Modlcoth, right now, may need to start my collection. x

  21. Don't you LOVE how the half-moon mani makes your nails look soooo long?! It's my favourite thing about wearing it. I have been using the OPI Matte Top Coat on it lately, and it's so pretty I can't even stand it. Really lovely colour combo you used!
