Ocequec Falls

We're finally upon the last pictures from our trip to the Sunrise Coast! On our final day, we stopped to Ocequec Falls. I was expecting an off-the-beaten path to see the waterfalls, but it was actually a really nice and updated park. Many of the locals come to these waterfalls to go swimming! They were perfect for swimming and walking around in on a hot summer day. They were some of the smallest waterfalls I've seen in the state, but they are one of the only two in the lower peninsula of Michigan!


This dress was so comfortable for exploring. The material is really breezy and lightweight. Although I love summer with a passion, I have such a hard time dressing for it. I think I have an easier time in winter even - at least I can layer! I always feel so guilty in summer just throwing on a dress and calling it an outfit post. I feel like I really get creative when I'm able to wear layers, tights and mix different patterns. I'm proud of a few summer outfits, but I'm really excited to dive into fall clothes finally.


I'm finally getting caught up on posts. I only have a couple posts of fashion week in New York, and then I'll be moving onto fall ones! We took some photos on Friday that felt so autumn. It just made me super excited. We had amazing weather this weekend. I ate a lot of good food, spent a lot of time with Eric, friends, family. Saw a movie. Went thrifting. Life is good and is going to get way better as each day goes by. Autumn makes my heart so happy!

  5. You are so beautiful Tieka! I love your outfit and YES I know exactly how you feel about summer outfits! I dress terribly in the summer time because it's so darn hot and humid in Georgia. It'd be better if I could just run around naked....

    maybe I should just stick to sweating to death in my clothes.

    I love that photo of Eric crossing the rocks!! Beautiful shot :)
    xoxoxo!

  14. I have the exact opposite problem with dressing for the seasons- I dont feel like I'm skilled enough to really make a great layered outfit. And I grew up not really wearing feminine clothes, so throwing on a dress in the summer feels very special to me. And I've loved seeing your gorgeous dresses this summer! Hopefully your fall outfits can help my get better at layers!

  18. These photos are beautiful! I love the one where you're getting your feet all wet - so cute!!

    I love how positive you are and your words are really resonating with me. I too am excited for a fresh start with fall - a season that I hopes brings lots of joy and warmth (in the figurative sense! ;) )

    It was just amazing to meet you briefly at LuckyFABB! I hope we can keep in touch and meet again someday soon!! Maybe Selective Potential needs a European vacation...??? :D

  23. Your dress is absolutely gorgeous! I think with summer it's easiest to play around with accessories because they can completely change an outfit and aren't extra 'layers' as such. x

  25. The place looks beautiful, though...that little bit of rocks and rapids was not the waterfall, surely?

    At any rate, looks like a great place to relax. The dress is beyond adorable!

  28. What a gorgeous place, and a beautiful dress! I know what you mean about summer fashion-- I love being warm, but I never feel very creative in summer. I'm so excited for fall to finally be here so I can get to mixing in tights an scarves and jackets. It's so much more fun!
