Fuchsia Dreams

What I Wore: Top: Sequin Sky (only $24.50!) / Shorts: T.J Maxx (similar) / Shoes: Steve Madden / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban / Bag: Vintage (similar) / Necklace: Saressa Designs 

Pink has been on repeat! I honestly cannot help it, I just gravitate towards any shade of pink. This top is so easy to pair with anything, I also wore it with a pair of white skinny jeans, and as a swim suit cover up (oops). I love when a piece can be worn many different ways, I feel like I get my moneys worth! 

With the weather being in the 90's all week, this chiffon top was light weight and breezy, keeping me cool. It is always hard to know what to wear when it is extremely hot out, I usually go for dresses, but that can get boring, so this look was perfect to switch up things!

The past couple of weeks it was the big Nordstrom Anniversary sale. It is when Nordstrom receives their fall products early, and puts them on sale for a limited time. The prices go back up to full retail price on August 2nd! I seriously love all the new items in for fall, especially these boots

When the school year comes around I am always looking for a new pair of dark wash jeans, and this maybe the winning pair. I may or may not have added half these things to my shopping cart, but I guess you will just have to wait and see what I end up getting...

Four day's left to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so hurry!

Maui Maxi

What I Wore: Dress: Greige Boutique (on sale!) / Shoes: Madden Girl / Necklace: Saressa Designs / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban / Bracelet: Kate Spade 

July is almost over, but that doesn't mean summer is! I love this bright maxi dress, the colors and design just scream summer! It is from one of my favorite shops; Greige Boutique (it's currently on sale for under $25!). The fabric is light and flowy, and it has a lining underneath so it isn't see through. I love the slit on the side so you can show off the shoes you are wearing. Of course it being a maxi dress, it will be getting a ton of wear for the rest of summer!

Breakfast By The Sea

What I Wore: Top: The Pink Armoire / Jeans: Old Navy / Bag: Sole Society / Shoes: Tory Burch (similar) / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban 

This is my new favorite go-to outfit! The top is flowy and comfortable, plus look how cute it is! The navy polka dots are perfect for any nautical look. This beautiful top is from the boutique The Pink Armoire, and also comes in red (which is super tempting for me!). The shoes I am wearing I bought last summer, well today was the first time wearing them...poor choice on my part. They are so adorable, but hurt so bad! Tory Burch is known for that, I am still debating if I am willing to risk wearing them again, I probably will, but my feet maybe crying the whole time!

Trend Alert: Nautical

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

Hey sailor! One of my favorite summer trends is nautical anything! Nautical is often a trend that pops up around the summer months, and I'm not complaining, it will be on of those trends that never goes out of style! Everything from navy to anchors, I want to own it! Even though I'm not lounging around the deck of my yacht all day (I wish!) I love the colors and the feel of being ready for the beach!

If you haven't read part one, click here. Friday was probably the hottest day. We started off going kayaking on a different river, this one was a much shorter trip, but way to many people on the river that day. Kayaking has become really fun, and I would love to continue here at home. After kayaking we headed back to the cottage and got ready for a date night. Eric and I went to a restaurant we ate at two years ago, and loved! Last time we went he got the General Tso chicken, and I got a Hawaiian chicken, but Eric's dish was so much better than mine, that I ate about half of it, so we had to go back this trip. We sat outside, and of course I had to order the General Tso chicken, it was pretty good!

After dinner we were going to see the movie "Inside Out', but had time to kill, so we walked around downtown and stopped in for Ice Cream. I ordered 'Mackinaw Island Fudge" and Eric got "Superman" differently a hit! Well walking around I found this Volkswagon bus that matched my  outfit perfectly (photo op!). The movie was really cute, and a must see. After we got more Ice Cream at a different ice cream shop...I know, I have a problem, but it was vacation!

Friday we went cherry picking at a local cherry tree farm. Eric's family had been there before, but this was my first time ever cherry picking. It was really fun, unfortunately, I don't like cherries, but it was fun to pick them! We spent the afternoon just relaxing, and headed to a little beach to walk around. Eric's dog's love the beach, so this was a perfect time to let them run around and swim! It was a beautiful sunset!

This was the last full day there. It was a little chilly, but we wanted to go to Lake Michigan to swim. Eric and I walked the road to the lake, well his parents kayaked. It was really pretty along the way. The outlet was really warm to swim in, but not Lake Michigan (burr!). This Jadelynn Brooke tank was perfect to wear to cover up my swim suit. I also thought the saying on it was perfect for this lake day! 

Of course Eric and I ended our night with Ice cream and a movie. We went to a old fashioned ice cream shop that smelled so good because they make their own waffle cones. I ended up getting a flurry, but will get a waffle cone for sure next time!

Of course the day we are headed home it was the nicest day! We cleaned the cottage and headed to a cute cafe for breakfast. I ordered chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, and we headed home! I wore a comfy outfit, since I was driving, but I love this cute saying on this t-shirt!

Oh my god, another ice cream picture??? Why yes, I had to document it. Overall it was a much needed week off!  The weather wasn't the best, but it was still a great time outdoors. 

Thank you again Sigrid, Tom and Eric, for letting me tag along!

I am currently in Iowa for a wedding, so tag along on Instagram with the hashtag 'TBBTravels'
