Hi and thank you for checking out my blog! I am Mari, founder of Marly Rae. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2015 with a degree in business. Originally a pure Michigander, I turned Floridian the day after graduation and have been treading my path in the sunshine state ever since. I started Marly Rae in 2014, but took a break from my blog to focus on building my career. After taking a step back, I am launching my updated blog and can't wait to give it the attention it deserves.

a little bit about myself:
Born & Raised in the Mitten & Moved to FL day after graduation
known for baking when overly stressed
Always have on an odd number of bracelets
Pescatarian for 6+ years

In addition, I play guitar, listen to xmas music in June, love lemon in my water, am a certified yoga and paddle board instructor, can never spell the word definitely without looking it up, and (sometimes) eat popcorn for dinner.

Whether I am practicing yoga, working with leading ocean conservation organizations, or traveling the globe, I've always stayed true to my roots. I live for adventures, but am completely satisfied being a homebody with my swissie, Yeti (named after the snow monster -- not the brand). I've always had a passion for fashion and I can't wait to share with you my unique style that is a mix of chic-boho-contemporary and everything in between! Read my blog to find out more.
