Mackinac Island

August 2, 2017

Recently, I went on a weekend vacation while in Michigan to Mackinac Island, an island about 3.8 square miles that is between Michigan's mitten and Upper Peninsula. It is a charming, quaint town that is known for not allowing cars on the island so visitors and locals travel by foot, bike, or - my personal favorite - horse. Although the weekend began with some not so flattering weather, it cleared up by the second day allowing for unforgettable adventures!

From sailing the Great Lakes to horseback riding with Titan - my new friend - to cocktails at the Grand Hotel, we had an amazing weekend.

What is one of your favorite weekend getaway locations?

Wynwood & Bodysuits

June 24, 2017

One of my new favorite clothing obsessions is bodysuits. You see them everywhere nowadays and I can understand why; find the right one and it’s your favorite piece of clothing! Largely because you can wear them with jeans, shorts, a skirt, or even some to the beach. Most of them are fairly simple, but some bring a little flare. Not that I am complaining, simple is my ideal description when it comes to clothing because it doesn’t mean boring, it means versatile. Something that is simple you can dress up or down, pair with a fun jacket, or wear a number of different ways without people even realizing it is the same staple piece you had on last week.

My favorite bodysuit is the Bangin’ Bodysuit from Free People - $40. I ended up liking it so much I got it in two colors. Pair it with some high-waisted shorts and a flannel around your waist for casual look or a nice pair of trousers, heels, and short-cut jacket for brunch.
