Headed North

This weekend I am headed to Mackinac Island for another wedding. I am super excited because I hear this place is absolutely dreamy. They do not allow cars on the island which makes for a very peaceful little town and I can't wait to escape city life and enjoy some time on the water. I plan to take in this special spot and enjoy all of the beauty it has to offer, plus celebrate the marriage of two more friends! 
I plan to wake up early, enjoy coffee in an adirondack chair, rent some bicycles, explore, eat yummy food, celebrate, sip champagne, and take lots of photos.


The lakeside always transforms my style into extremely preppy, nautical, boating attire so I plan to pack lots of stripes, daytime dresses, florals, boat shoes, color, a party dress, and a fun bathing suit. 

Dave is the best man, so I am tagging along for the majority of the wedding festivities. We are stopping at our friends house on Thursday night for a fun day on the water Friday, before driving the extra hour north to Mackinac. I can't wait!

Have you ever been to Mackinac? Any recommendations? I'd love to hear!

Another wedding?! Sounds fantastic!! I've never been there but it looks gorgeous and little bit like Charleston, SC.

LOVE the days shoes and that orange flowy dress with the aqua scarf! Great picks!!
