Happy first day of summer! What a great thing to finally say. I LIVE for Michigan summers. The older I get the more it becomes abundantly clear- I'm a summer gal, no doubt. The rest of the seasons have their perks, but give me all the summer things! Lately it feels more like August than June around here. Upper 80's and hot, hot, hot. I'm loving it. I've been dying to take Winston to the beach or a water park. He's already a water-bug, just like his mommy. He loves his bath time and when we took him to Florida this past January he was all about the pool, at only 6 months!
We have a one year birthday trip planned for him this July and I can't wait for that. We're camping right on Lake Michigan and it'll be so great. Ps- can you believe Winston will be ONE next month? Growing so fast but so, so fun. This age is great.
These pictures were taken last Friday for a girl's night out event at Birch & Elm. I had such a great time meeting new people and helping with styling. I wore this bohemian dress from the boutique and got so many compliments on it. It's incredibly lightweight but opaque- the perfect combo for summer. I can't do heavy dresses in the dog days of summer, I'll melt!
I paired the dress with my favorite pair of leather Eddie Bauer slip ons and some gold accessories. Perfect. Also, I was super proud of this hair job. Ha. I did it all myself! I love braids. I hope they stay 'in' for the foreseeable future.
Tonight is our monthly girl's cooking club! Yay. This is one of my favorite nights of the month. Can't wait to share more on that later this week. The menu is looking crazy good so I'm basically saving all the calories for tonight. ;)
