Small Girl, Big Ideas

Lockview

We got the chance to meet Jessica and Rachel again at the Lockview before going shopping for our New Year's party while in Akron. I've been in love with the Lockview for awhile now, and it was a necessary stop for the grilled cheese tour. Their fries are really what make it for me, but their yummy standard grilled cheeses are always a treat. To find out more, read the Yelp review here. Or - visit this page for more info and other stops on the grilled cheese tour.


We bought food and cups at the grocery store and stopped in at Hobby Lobby to grab paint to do a DIY. We then met another friend to have a nice beer and pick up a growler of the Stone Vertical Epic 10-10-10 at 101 Bottles of Beer on the wall. I was super in love with this dress I borrowed from Elana - it was the perfect dress for running around, but I think also would make a great party dress, hence pairing it with my new 'cha cha cha' tights. (PS - let's discuss how I totally just sat my camera on the ground to take the animated gif in the middle of a store in public and used my remote to trigger it. Forever awkward.)

  4. Grilled cheese is one of the best comfort foods...so simple and yummy! I haven't had tater tots in so long that I think I may have actually forgot about their awesome existence. I need to have some now!!
    I love that blazer with that dress! A nice pair. :)

  6. I definitely need to learn not to care what other people think while I'm taking pictures. I get so embarrassed! But I love all your pictures so I think I can take a cue from you for the sake of great pics :). Your tights are so cute and you're also making me really hungry. Grilled cheese sounds amazing right now!

    1. I schedule ahead too!

      Oh and it's the best advice I can give anyone. Chances are, no one in that store will see me again, or remember me for more than five seconds. And if they remember me, well, I'm dressed pretty darn cute.

  25. you have the cutest date nights- that grilled cheese looks like a little slice of heaven. and now i'm hankering for a craft beer...and it's only 10:30am. Your blog is going to lead me into ruin haha.

    and i think i'm going to stop being self conscious with my picture locations if these are the amazing results you get! that shoe gif was adorable (and amazing tights!). I remember one time i was reading Delightfully Tacky and she said that she'd always say she was an art student doing a project if people asked her what the hell she was doing haha. The perfect excuse ;)

  34. So. ADORABLE! You look fantastic in red and I am in love with that belt! Seriously such a fun NYE outfit. This place looks awesome too, and the grilled cheese ohhh myyy! I have to confess that I've never been to Ohio but I will put it on the list, if only for this grilled cheese!! Hope you are having a wonderful start to the new year, I loved reading your resolutions too! Totally laughed at the husband-approved outfit one, I should really try that with my bf but then I would end up wearing stripes or solids only ever. Blah!

    perfectly priya
