Vacation Style | Lake Michigan

I’m back home in Michigan for a quick few days visiting my hometown. It’s the happiest place on earth and I am grateful for even 48 hours here. This trip reminded me to share my #lakelife outfits from my last vacation here in June, when I really got to indulge in some time off.

Who can say no to paradise + savvy siblings? So, my husband and I packed our beachside staples [along with our work], for a quick few days away. Maui is right where we’re meant to be. I even did a little happy dance on…. Read more
