Detroit Institute of Arts5:00 PM
I thought I'd take a break from all of the vacation posts to share with you guys a little trip we took over the weekend to the DIA with Mark and Mariah.We started out at Grand Trunk for some brunch, and then headed to the DIA to look at art for the afternoon. I love the DIA so much, it really is an amazing art museum. Mariah had a homework assignment for her art class, so we were running around the museum scavenger-hunt style looking for specific pieces of art that she needed to take photos of for her class. It made the trip pretty interesting to say the least because we kept getting distracted by all of the amazing artwork.
Kyle and I ended up have a coupon and bought a discount membership for the DIA for a year so I am so excited to go back with more friends! I seriously could spend hours there. They are even open later on Friday nights so I am hoping for a girls night at the DIA sometime in the next year, I think it would be amazing.
Since the weather has been odd again in the Mitten, I thought a longer, yet light dress would be good for the day. I bought this one back in the early spring from the vintage section of Value World and I am kinda bummed that I have not worn it before. It has a great length and I love the seventies-style cut to it. I am already thinking of a few other ways to style this dress up for the blog.
We also ended up hitting up the Dally in the Alley, right off of Wayne States campus on the way home. I have been going to that for years and it was cool to take Mariah for the first time. It is basically an art/music/handmade goods event with some political speak-ups in four alley's in Detroit. It has become a little more commercial over the years, but not too bad. Then we ended up at the WAB in Ferndale for a bite to eat before heading home to make a fire pit in the yard. Overall, I'd have to say it was a perfect September day.
