Home Sweet Columbus

Hello sunshines!

With the recent Columbus movie that was released, which highlights the architecture of my hometown Columbus, IN, I thought I would showcase some of the landmarks!

It was August when we went back home to visit my family, so my outfits are definitely a bit on the summery side; however, I think I'm wearing pieces that can be worn into fall, or maybe even winter!

My first outfit is the sheer long floral cardigan/kimono with a slip dress and mules. The sheer cardigan/kimono is from Forever 21, I can't seem to find this exact version on the US site, only the Canada site (here), but found a similar one on the US site that is also floral for $22.90 (here)! I plan on wearing my cardigan/kimono with jeans in the fall and winter! It's honestly the perfect accessory that adds a pop of color and beats the winter blues.

My second outfit is the long sleeved bodysuit and the pink shorts. I LOVE bodysuits (minus the occasional hassle if ya catch my drift); they're perfect to wear with shorts, skirts, and jeans, AND no need to awkwardly mess with re-tucking the shirt. Mine is super old from American Apparel, so no longer available, but I've found similar cute striped ones from Asos/Free People (here) and Forever 21 (here).

Note* - All background information about these landmarks found on https://columbus.in.us/guide-to-the-architecture/

  • The Robert Stewart Bridge, built in 1997, "frames the entryway into Downtown Columbus" and is the "first cable-stayed bridge of its kind in North America."
  • North Christian Church, designed by Eero Saarinen in 1961, the church was completed in 1964. This was Eero Saarinen's last design.
  • Veterans Memorial was designed in 1997 by Maryann Thompson. The names of 156 veterans from Bartholomew County are carved into the sides of the limestone pillars.
  • Inn at Irwin Gardens, built in 1864 by Joseph Irwin. The building has been redesigned multiple times throughout the years as the Irwin family grew over generations. It is beautiful inside! The outside picture I took does not do the the Irwin Gardens justice.

Enjoy! Hope you'll visit this small town filled with gems soon!
